Hey Chris,

You are not alone, far from it. If gambling is causing a problem in your life, then the gambling needs to be addressed. It's all about choice, you can choose to continue to gamble, if you want to. You can choose to go to a meeting and meet like minded people who have a common goal, to stop gambling and help each other do just that. The choice is yours, you can tackle this problem if you want to. It's perfectly natural to feel anxious about going somewhere you've never been before, but please don't let that stop you from going.

Your experience will be shared by most if not all in the meeting. The help is there and going to meetings is the start of getting that help. I too was anxious at first, once at the meeting and you hear the therapies of other compulsive gambler, things will start to make sense.

One day at a time
Simmo
One day at a time.  My last bet was 15/03/2016 and I hope and pray each day that it stays that way.
