Hi tyger

Tend not to go into this too much with people at first..but you seem to be hanging around a bit...
Do you think its time to get more serious with your recovery? Yes meetings are a part of GA but they are only the tip of the iceberg....

GA is a 12 step recovery program for a reason....

Perhaps its time to have a read of the 'Be a sponsor' book that groups should have copies of...if not ask the secretary to order some from the literature officer...

When i was nine i use to play cards with the rents for e,tra pocket money...
Dumb move...
When i waS eighteen i was old enough to sign on so now i had my own income...
I would play fruit machines...
Dumbmove
When i was twenty i moveed to Manchester....
I lived on top of the takeaway where i also worked..
I am currently in London...
I was introduced to the casino where i got hooked to black jack...
I rarely win so idk why i kept going back every single week...
Even when i did win at the end ofthe day i would lose itback...
I would get paid on a saturday night then straight to the casino after work...
I would even pay my work college a tenner to drive me there...
Iwould get paid on a saturday night and on that same night i would lose all my wages....
Come monday myday offi be skint so i would borrow some money off the boss and he will take it off my wages when i get paid next week...
So every week i would have less money as the boss takes the money i owe off and its just a vicious circle...
Sothats what i did for 1.5 years until i had a mental breakdown and ran back to london...
So for 15 years i was on benefits due to mental health...
I would not buy or payfor anything all my benefits would go on gambling...
I would always be skint until payday then i blow all the money in that day iget paid...
So now the present...
I am now off benefits so happy Smile
I have been working part time since 18/05/2015...
But i am still gambling...
Idk know whyi bother...
I would win but at the end of the day i would lose back my winnings and even more...
Then i would pawn my belongings to chase my loses...
I dontneed the extra money so idk why im still gambling...
The money i make is more than enough for me...
So from today i need to stop gambling...
Its the first bet i neec to avoid if i avoid the first bet then i wont lose then no neex to chase my loses...
So now im paying off my depts every month and i still have plenty money tospare if i dont gamble so why do i do it Sad...

Thanks...
My namez Tyger79 and im a compulsive gamlber
Today i will not gamble

Wb back Tyger,

Hope you keep going to meetings...
maybe now is the time to get a sponsor...really start working the GA recovery program??
Wish it wasn't always necessary but this can be a progressive addiction....

Keep doing the basics and please keep sharing...
good to see you back
Smartie xx
