New to this Finally admitting i have a problem - 108ant - 09-12-2013

Hi i have been a conpulsive gambler for the last few years, i have earned good money but wasted gambling and chasing losses always wanting more than i have earnd. i have now finally admitted that i have a problem with gambling and want to get help. i will be viviting my first GA meeting in darlington tomorow. i have never been to one before so am unsure what it will be like. i do know i want to stop gambling and would like to live a happy life without the thought of gambling taking over me. i have just today told my fiance that i have a problem and want to get help. she has been very understanding with this. i feel a huge wait has been lifted off my shoulders after admitting my gambling problem. i know its going to be a hard long road but i feel i have the strength to come out fighting.

Hi smartie thankyou for replying to my post. I would have to say the meeting went well. It helped me realize its not just me who is battling this demon. I can see how the support of the groups can help people. I am looking forward to my next visit tonight. Many thanks
