Hi, Sounds like you are ready to surrender and that is the first major step towards recovery. Go along to your local GA with an open mind - there is no onus or pressure to talk if you don't want to, but listen to what the other people say and you will hear of some remarkable stories of hopelessness to recoveries from compulsive gambling. The lives of compulsive gamblers is sad, insidious and insane. The things I did to gamble was absolutley insane and I answered 20 our of 20 the GA questions re my gambling. You will find the questions on this web site - see how you go in answering them!
Come back here and let us know how your first meeting was any questions and I will gladly answer them for you if I can.
Your friend in GA
