    Just today

    Sun Nov 26, 2017 4:47 pm

    Hi everyone,

    I hadnt gambled in about 8 months and then on thursday busted. Trying to making sure this is a lapse not a relapse and let it go, Have an angry and hurt family and dont blame them. I was complacent that i would have control. Nope!!! Exactly the same feelings whiile i was gambling and the same despair and shame afterwards. Why, why, why do i do this to myself and loved ones.

    Day 3 today.

    Hi there, you do it to yourself and loved ones because you are an addict. Not an excuse but a reason. Start again. You have stopped before you can do it again. Keep posting and we are all here for you.

    Thanks jeddie and mona, you are both right. I learnt yet another hard lesson about this cunning horrible addiction. Like a liitle monster saying "aha, got you.."...
