    Hello fellow quit gamblers,

    I am new here and am worried and scared.

    My family and partner have suffered from my gambling problem.

    I can gamble the whole amount of money i have on me. I even have started to gamble bigger amounts. instead of just 1 cent and 2 cent machines, i am trying 20 cents 10 cents and 5 cents. it is absolutely disgusting of me. i can sit for hours on those machines and order drink after drink of soda or coffee (you know they are complimentary!)

    My life went downhill. i can not save money. my partner always pays for my petrol. my mother looks at me with disappointment. it really gets me down.

    Thank you,

    Worried and Scared
