I guess this is the 1st step

Hi everyone.
I'm new to this.
Today, I'm admitting out loud (or online), that I have a problem.
Never knew my life would go down this path..but here I am.
I started going pokies with a friend, started playing small bets, had no idea how to play machines, only went to hang out. That was 3yrs ago.
Today, I play pokies on my own after work. My family suspect I have a problem, but I've become really good at hiding it. It's like being a drug addict.
I'm over this addiction consuming my thoughts and lying to my family.
Thank you for listening/reading.

Hi Jojo77..good on you for coming here and admitting a problem..you have made the first move.
Perhaps by telling your family , and if you think they already suspect it,It hey might be able to help you and I'm sure they would want to support you.
Don't be afraid to ask for help and there is plenty out there
Good luck
