I also found myself watching people live stream their online wins.

I started filming myself playing and had a few big wins. But then Melbourne Cup cane around and I had a nice win on that and I thought to myself this is too easy. I’m wasting all my time off in pubs and casinos let me punt on something that I can control not a random machine.

I won a bit at first then started losing and chasing. Chasing very hard until I had lost a small fortune in a 3-4 month period.

I have now realised I can never gamble again. It was also coping mechanism and trying to escape facing things in my life. Be honest with yourself and start to focus on how you’re feeling when the urge to gamble comes along. Good luck giving up
Im with you on the never gambling again part. Ive had nice long breaks before and you do forget about it after a while. Just struggling getting started again is all. Thanks for your comments

I was actually looking for that last night. Great idea but the nearest one i could find is about 45 min drive away which is prohibitive due to work commitments. That was through GA though. Is there other groups i might be able to find ? Thanks
