It's all gone too far
Hi wasitallworthit

I think boredom was one of the reasons that I turned to gambling.
"Cheap entertainment" I thought <!-- s:oops: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_redface.gif" alt=":oops:" title="Embarrassed" /><!-- s:oops: -->

There is a lot of FREE entertainment available if you want it. I am 52 so I am not in your age bracket, but for me, I have rediscovered my love for reading, gardening,my German Shepherd, bike riding, and nature in general. Surely there must be something that you can find that can amuse you !

Re GA. Speaking from my own experience, I would say that without GA, I would not be here today.
The support/fellowship available from those meetings is lifesaving, and life changing!

The other thing is that we underestimate our families. Sure, some people have been disowned from their own families because of this addiction, BUT a lot of gamblers have received enormous support from their families as well. Give your family a chance to help you, by admitting to them that you have a problem AND you are looking at the avenues available o you to help overcome this addiction.

The longer you put off going to GA, the less remorseful you are going to feel. Strike while the iron is hot. While you are still feeling this low. Have you got someone who can possibly drive you to your nearest GA?

I am in Brisbane, Australia... yes a nice place. If you think that a change of scenery will help you overcome this addcition however, I think you would be wrong. The extra stress involved in such a big move could pressure you into more, & heavier gambling.

Get your gambling under control before you think of such a drastic change.

Best wishes
