Hi everyone

I’m new to to this and struggling to find a way to beat this ugly habit
I can’t go down the pub without spending money on the pokies
I’ll take money out until I have close to none left or reach my limit
Makes me feel lonely and ashamed
Looking forward to interacting and finding ways to beat this beast

Hi Jah..and welcome
Have you thought about not taking your card to the hotel?
If you go there for a drink..only take enough for that,then the temptation is a bit less.
Or find somewhere else to go..I don't know where you live but if you go out to eat then I would be looking for a pub that has no pokies..and they do exist
Good luck
