    Feeling so ****. Two days out from payday and I’m broke. Spent $900 in the last two weeks. I’m so over this habit. It’s ruining our marriage. We’re feeding off each other’s habits. We know if either one of us says we’re going to the pub the other will follow because we’re weak as F**k!

    Welcome to the forums Rebecca!

    Takes a lot of strength to resist gambling. It is Not so much a weakness as it is the machines have brainwashed us. It is how they have been programmed. watch Ka' Ching pokie nation and any other you tube gambling segments so you can understand what happens.

    The rest is hard as withdrawals are crazy... and you'll need to make changes to everyday life. Do new things ... maybe find a GA meeting you can both go to instead of the pub? ...

    All the best on your journey !

    stay strong

    Welcome to the forums @Rebecca4207,

    As Mona says, it's very difficult to change a behaviour. I'm sure you're not weak at all - you definitely don't sound it!

    Have you considered some ways to help support yourself in making this change?
    How have you been going since your last post?
