Hi Josh,
Welcome to the forum, my name is Barrie and I am a compulsive gambler.

Firstly and most importantly I was the same as you, always in a mess, hypnotised by fruit machines.

I said ENOUGH, admitted I was powerless over gambling, it had beaten me. Then I started to live life One day at a time and the most important words I can utter in that day were "just for today I will not gamble" and when I rested my head on the pillow at night I said "thankyou because today I did not gamble"

Life than gets slowly better but I put all the barriers in place, barred myself from all places, gave up control of money and looked to a higher power to guide me.

One HUGE step is admission and that can only be found inside a GA meeting amongst others who UNDERSTAND.

I urge you to try this...or spend the next ten years in the same situation.

Take Care.
