    Sick of feeling sick

    Thu Jul 05, 2018 12:14 pm

    I have a long and sorry story , as I'm sure most of the people on here do. I have been gambling for 32 years on pokies. I feel I have no control and Neve will. The only way I ever not gamble is to leave my money and at card at home, or I know I will blow the lot.

    I so much want to be rid of this disease it makes me feel so sick to the stomach.

    I know I can't change the past, but I hope I can change the future.

    This is day 3 for me

    Hi, welcome to the forum.
    Yep we all have the same sort of stories. In a way it's good as you feel like your no longer alone.

    There are lots of different ideas that people have put in place to stop their gambling. You need to find one that works best for you.
    I gave up complete financial control as i knew I didn't have the strength at the start of my journey not to gamble.

    Wishing you much strength on the start of your GF life 😊
