    Hi Lee,

    Welcome to the forum, great to have you here. How do you stop going to the pokies? Well, you've taken the first step. Just knowing that you want to stop, and making contact with us, is huge. There are heaps of techniques our counsellors can share with you on top of this. You can talk to them on 1800 858 858 at any time. It's completely free from landlines, and it's confidential. I wonder, are you trying anything to help yourself stop or cut down at the moment?

    I think the hardest thing is finding something else to fill the time, once I was able to do that it really helped

    So I became a massive nerdberger and started playing yahoo chess LOL
