Cannot give up gambling
I am 60 still working owning my own Bookkeeping business looking after every ones money but I am wasting all my profits on slot machines. I started to go to the bingo with my friend and we won a bit but not much on the actual bingo so we started to play on the machines I was winning loads of money which we shared but then I started to lose. I am still working just to feed my compulsion to play the slot machines. I did tell my husband about 2 years ago and I did stop for a while but for some reason I have started again. I am afraid for the consequences if my husband finds out but I still keep feeding the machines. I win but find that I put it all back in without even knowing why. I do not drive and I am unable to get to any meetings. I am making an effort by registering to try to give up altogether. Please can I have some help from fellow machine players.
Hi cherrywake

Whether you tell your husband is entirely up to you. However, if you don't tell him, & he does find out by other means...what then? <!-- sSad --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_sad.gif" alt="Sad" title="Sad" /><!-- sSad -->

Most CG's are eventually found out.

My opinion, better to tell him know & hope he can offer some support for you.

One very important thing for you to ponder... You must WANT to stop.
Saying you want to stop without meaning it, will achieve nothing.
You must be honest with yourself.

Best wishes
I think you need to try to get to a meeting cherry. Its the best way. Can you get a taxi, it would probably be cheaper than the money you are putting in the machines. I know how the machines call, but GA meetings will help.
