Go to a GA meeting. That's the only help or advice I can offer you.

still worried that when I get home the laptop will go on and I'll start gambling again. Please help

Maybe some may call that progress and if its helping you...great..

However for me it wouldn't be...

Take our experiences or don't..but if you want the help..get to your nearest meeting asap..

All the best

Don't make excuses, just go to a meeting. If you had a broken leg would you try and hide that from your family and not go to the hospital?

Compulsive gambling is a PROGRESSIVE ILLNESS. Unless you do something about it things will only get worse, how long do you want to leave it? How much more suffering do you want to take? How much more money/time/friends do you want to lose? I could go on!

Don't be like the countless others who come to this site looking for a miracle cure and, when they find out there isn't one, and they actually have to put some effort in to sort this problem out, they run a mile and go back to the gambling.
