Here goes nothing!!
I’mHi just a quick introduction on myself. I am currently 3 days bet free , my last bet absolutely devastated me and has opened my eyes that I am never going to get that ‘win’ which will change my life. I have attended g a meetings and this was my second time round. I haven’t been to group for about 8 weeks and have had 2 slips since. I’m a payday binge gambler , my finances are all over the place. I have two children that’s have seen me in a bad way lately it’s not good for any of us. I literally cannot handle the pain anymore not to mention the pain and hurt I’m reflecting on to others its just a sad vicious cycle I’m going through and if anything im damaging myself and I know I haven’t got it in me to have another episode Because I like literally couldn’t handle it. It’s from now that I have to stand up and take responsibility for my actions realise changes need to happen or my life is going to continue to detoriate right before me. The pain I have is still so raw I justneed to keep that close.
HI Bondage82,

Welcome to the forum and thank you for sharing, well done on 3 days, keep going, one day at a time. I remember well the devastation that I caused my family and we are recovering together. Keep going to meetings, keep working on recovery and things do start to improve.

Keep posting

Just for today I will not gamble

One day at a time.  My last bet was 15/03/2016 and I hope and pray each day that it stays that way.
HI Bondage82,

Great start....

Just for curiousity, have you started working the 12 stepp program with a sponsor yet? If not, maybe thats something to consider now??

Anyway, keep in touch...

Meetings help, but meetings are only a small part to how GA works....

GA is a 12 step organisation that offers the program that keeps me in recovery...
