First time here

Postby ATerribleAddiction » Thu Jul 11, 2019 6:54 pm

I am having a hard time coming to terms with what I'm doing and don't know where to turn. I found this forum. I'm completely baffled by how I got here. Never drank, never drugs, always straight shooter. I lost over $4000 last night and came home suicidal. I can't subscribe to religious, higher meaning kind of stuff and it's very difficult to join the masses in the recovery process- I'm the practical kind...and I can't afford good inpatient therapy ... ironical, huh? I'm lost in the darkness... am I alone?!

Hello,
First of all you're not alone :) i recommend for you to try GA meeting if there is any around you. I'm going there for almost 4 years and if you are scared of any religious things, you have to believe in whatever you want. I have tried theraphy, medicaments, psychologist and etc. But GA group is the only thing that helped me for real, I'm 3,5 years gambling free.
Good luck in your recovery!

Dear ATerribleAddiction, do you have more details to share with us? What caused your loss?

For a start, maybe you can share your story with a close friend whom you can trust, it may help.
