    Payday was Friday and because of my gambling habits I lost $900 and only have $100 to keep me afloat until next payday. I need help. I need out of this gambling life. I hate myself. I have to return purchases that I've made just so I can make it until next payday.

    Welcome to the forums Summer '

    Please don't be hard on yourself, we have all been down that path. Read as many posts as you can and you will see that you are not alone.

    There's lots of helpful advice you can find on the site, the Blog section is especially helpfull. Changing routes & changes to banking were two things that helped me at the beginning. It takes time to break old habits and reprogram our minds & life.

    All the best on your journey.

    It feels good to be able to confess on here that I have a gambling problem. No one really knows because I hide it so well. I'm so glad I'm not alone on this. #Day1

    Thank you Mona

    Hi Summer I’ve done the 100 days before but have recently relapsed. All I can say is the first week sucks but after the first week and avoiding gambling for a few days you start to stop hating yourself and feel good about life again. Hang in there it’s seems impossible but is really where you want to be.

    Check each day for motivation and put the gambling part of your life behind you.

    Hi @Summer2019

    It takes a lot of strength and courage to look for help and accountability. Be patient with yourself and look for positives in your day.

    Take care.
