My story

Recommended Posts

Hi, my name is Bob, I am 47, I am happy and I have the most beautiful wife in the world. Seems like two years ago I had another awful life filled with addiction, lie and shame or it happened to another person. I am not going to tell you all this hell in details I will just ask you to help if you ever find out that one of your friends or relatives or someone you know is gambling addicted, just help, try to do everything you can. Believe, this person can not understand its harm but even if he or she do  - can not  stop gambling. Any addiction is horrible and be sure gambling one is one of the worst. It is like subtile enemy eat you from within, blur your mind and separate you from the family. And you just feeling it but can't do something cause you are blind and voiceless. Only a few addicts can bust out of a slump by themselves before this disease will ruin one's life. I just want to share few websources I used in process of my recovery with hope one of you will use them: 1. http://www.fuckgambling2.com/ ; 2. http://problemgamblingohio.net/; 3. http://www.gamtalk.org. The last website brought me to opinion I should share my own story, the second one contain the list of 5 another useful links. These sites are the first step, they will help you to understand you are "ill", the next step is analyzing your situation and make a plan of recovery, in this stage you will need another person, it is a must.This person will be your psychologist, closest friend and your supervisor. So I wish everyone good luck and the right person near!

Hi Bob,

 

Welcome aboard and thanks for sharing your own story.

The websites you listed are very good ones, I wasn't aware of Gamtalk but would definitely check it out (it can only be better than Gamcare, that's for sure).

 

May I also ask how did you hear about this site?

 

Best Regards.

When I decided to write something (I had already had an idea of my story for about few days) I opened Google and wrote "share gambling story" so you were one of the first sites in the list.

That's why I'm here)

 

Thanks for sharing that, first time I hear the website is on top of Google using some keywords.

 

Have you managed to stay free from gambling for the past few months?
