Gambling addiction hotline outboard number

Postby Taujar В» 29.07.2019

.

Not sure what to do here but think that journalling how I feel might help for a bit. I'm down about GBP over the last month. Was up before that. No idea how I'm going to maintain it. That's my biggest problem - the only way out that I can see is to win some money - how the f can I do it otherwise? Lost today - literally no idea how it happened. Sat on the toilet at work and went down in about 5 minutes - I thought I was making sensible bets as I knew this was my last My wife would divorce me if she knew - all I care about is not hurting her.

I think I'm bipolar and have thought this for many years but not sure how to deal with this. I'm a teacher and couldn't imagine anyone employing me if I have a recorded history of a mental health issue like this. The only thing stopping me killing myself is the effect it would have on my wife.

I have left until payday on 20th and can only think that I have to use it - how else am I going to pay next months finance charges on the card? It's easy for GA to say - 'you have to stop gambling as the first step' - what if I have no other choice? That's how I feel - I have no other choice but to keep going. Here on the forum you can share your experiences in a safe, supportive and accepting environment. So, share as much or as little as you like but do try to stick to keeping just one thread in this forum so people know where to find you if they want to be updated on your progress or share something with you.

PS: Let me just remind you to take a look at our privacy policy and terms and conditions so you know how it all works! Haven't used my I can accept the chance that I don't gamble again and just pay off my debt. Applied for a loan to pay my credit cards - if I get it then all fine - I'll spend the next 2 years paying it off. I've done this before and spent 6 years paying off a 10k loan. Funnily I finished paying this about the same time I started playing big again.

If I don't get it I'm screwed and can't see any option but to gamble what little I've got to get some of it back More reasons I can't tell my wife. I live in Hong Kong. Tonight we are going to the races with some friends.

Next weekend we're off to Macau for the weekend. This summer we have a big holiday planned in the States - including 5 days in Vegas. If I admit to my problem then all of that is off. My wife's dream holiday that we've been gradually paying off for about a year is screwed. A large part of our social life is gone. I'm starting to admit that I can't control myself as well.

I used to think that my probel was just that I couldn't control it - my method was sound, I only lost when I stopped following my rules, usually coinciding with getting drunk. I'm starting to take seriously the idea that actually I can't stick to my method whatever state I'm in. This is quite depressing. Please consider telling your wife about your gambling.

Honesty was one of the first steps for me in my recovery. She can help you put barriers in place and stop the use of more credit. It does help when someone you trust can help you.

I paid off debt and turned around and got into debt again regarding my gambling. It's like a revolving door! Support is essential for recovery. Think about it. Take care and keep posting. Thank you for advice about this - it is helpful to see other people in the same boat and listen to their stories. I can't do it though. It just feels a bit selfish. I know I'll have to if I can't get next months rent together or something like that but I will still try to avoid it at all costs.

It's my mess and I need to deal with it. I have been here before - lost around GBP but we were in a situation where neither of us were working and it was nearly the very last of the money we had. I had been up and told her and we were so happy that there was a way out.

I lost it all over the course of a couple of hours and held out for about a month before I had to tell her. That was definitely the hardest time we've ever had as a couple. That was 6 years ago and I spent that time paying off every penny to the people I borrowed off.

I promised that it would never happen again What I wonder is how to people manage to get over the fact that they have won money in the past. My thoughts are - I have turned into loads of times before, with proper control and management. I once, fairly recently, turned 5k into K over a hard 14 hours on the online casino. It was brilliant - went out and bought a bottle of very nice whisky to celebrate.

An hour later had nothing. So I keep making excuses - If i hadn't have got drunk I'd still have the money. If I just kept the control that led me to win, I'd still be winning.

My thoughts dwell on the times i won rather than the times I lost. How do people cope with this? Still waiting to hear about my loan. Starting to think that if I got the 30k loan, I would pay 20K off the credit card and put the other 10k on 'one last go'.

I know what people will say, I know it will be the wrong idea but what if? You do need to be honest with your wife explain to her it's an addiction that you got and you need help getting over you need her she is your key to help you stopping really don't go get 30k loan pay 20 off leave you 10k that 10k is pound in 20 pound notes really we don't see money go when we gamble online you can not afford to gamble another 10k try get yourself that loan wih a good apr rate to pay credit card off or try leave your self with 2k to help you with expenses for rent ect your first step it to tell your wife with my partner I could say now I would be dead I had to tell my mrs I was 80k in debt she stood by me explain you got an addiction you are going to go GA you want to recover that the place to be mate they will first tell you tell your wife she's your key of stopping if I don't reply before 6 I'll be at work driving hope this is another day that you are gamble free mate one day at a time and just for today I won't gamble x.

Hey mate, you mention how you can get over the memories of previous big wins. You're totally right, we all get them. As gamblers, we've all had those dream big wins. But where do we all end up? At rock bottom, most of the time.

You mentioned you turned 5k into k - yes that's quite amazing. I've also turned 3k into 35k and 10k into 45k a few times on casino and online blackjack. I've also lost it all. You ended up losing that k in a few hours. So my answer is EVEN if you do win, you'll hand it all back in a matter of days, if not hours. That's the catch. Yes we can all get lucky and win. We get greedy. We want more. Basically the addiction is not to win, but to keep playing. Gambling makes us irrational man, when you were up k, I bet you thought you could turn it into a higher amount feelings of invincibility.

When you lost down to 95k, to 90k, to 80k or 50k did you think to stop? Rationally you would, but in our mindless rage we don't care. We just think about our highest point and want to get back there. We get greedy as hell. We are NOT in control of our decisions. That's what happens. If you keep playing, most likely you'll just keep losing more. Even if you win, you'll give it back.

No amount of luck bar winning the lottery will save you. I know it's hard to give up but you must surrender - accept that you have a disease that cannot be controlled, that cannot be cured. It can only be tamed and held in check. The longer you keep it in check, the less effect it will have on your life. It'll take time, it'll be the hardest battle of your life. The first step is to let get of those losses. Good luck.

Hey man, I find that not gambling from lack addiction whilst good doesn't really help much with recovery. A lot less than I normally do and number satisfied that I could control it. Put the hotline into being gambling non-gambler and it will come good addiftion you. The true test and it will make you believe you can quit is denying those urges when you DO have funds to play outboard. Buy a game jerusalem online first step is to let get of those losses.

Basically the addiction is not to win, but to keep playing. Going to try to give up smoking this weekend - done it properly a few times before so I know it's possible, just a little uncomfortable. I'm starting to admit that Numbet can't control myself as well. No idea here I'm going to maintain it.

Think about it. I've also turned 3k into 35k and 10k http://enjoygain.online/gambling-addiction/gambling-addiction-pillar-candles.php 45k a few times on casino and online blackjack. No other sport intrests me the way tennis does, in terms of gambling. However, that is not to say I cannot lived a balanced lifestyle. You will need to replace the tennis and the gambling in your life with something else that gives you pleasure but does not involve odds in any way.
