    Things keep happening to make me want to gamble...

    Fri May 03, 2019 6:25 pm

    Hello 👋

    I decided to quit gambling a week and half ago and so far so good. So I tend to gamble when I’m stressed and today my car decided to lock the brakes up because the mechanic didn’t put the calipers on properly. I’m furious about that and these kinds of emotionally frustrating things make me want to gamble.


    Then today, I get the call from the Star casino (mind you, they’ve never ever called me before) to tell me now that I’m at GOLD tier and I will receive all these benefits. I just need to go in and show my ID to get my new card. I get ‘complimentary’ stays at their prestigious hotels and so on. Hmm...should I go and collect? I wonder if I could control myself? Ahhh.

    The pokies are trying to call me back to them!!!

    Hello @cardofhearts

    I apologise that there's been a delayed response..

    How have things been going ? I've noticed you haven't posted on the forums for quite some time.
