Here in Italy we have with publich health some free service that help you to quit gambling
I wish you nothing but the best while you go through this journey. Although it is a hellish journey it is still nevertheless a journey. Do not beat yourself up. Do some digging into your past and talk to a shrink,priest,therapist,etc about the things you SWORE you would take to the grave (secrets you have in your life that you told yourself you would never tell anyone). Start looking deep within yourself and most of all learn to love yourself. Try taking some time off and going to rehab or going to GA gambling anonymous meetings and surround yourself with people who have been through the same issues as you. This is something that will help you grow and become a better version of yourself.
This takes time, patience, self love, self acceptance and so much more. First start by taking it one day at a time and trying some of my recommendations I just gave you. It may or may not work but at the end of the day you can at least say that you are working on becoming a better person.
Again, I wish you nothing but the best. Much love brother.
Keep going and try to keep your mind busy - create a business and immerse yourself in it and this will take your mind away from gambling and help you make money!
Good luck buddy, I know mental health can be a hell of a thing to get over. Have you thought about going to see your Doctor? Sounds daft but I think in the UK they would signpost you to addiction help services and/or treat you for depression (if that's a thing for you).
How is it going? Can not see any update.
Warm and kind words wont get you out of your addiction. Be a man, get your shit together and fucking do it as simple as that. Addiction is the last stage of consumerism so get through it.
Yeah I feel so bad just by thinking what I could do if I invest all the money I had in business instead gambling them...
Yeah mate, that's very terrible. I lost everything I had in the past, but now I'm starting from ZERO and I hope i will never touch it again.
That's great. Here in my country there is no services like that, but successfully I quit and I'm happy about it.
Thank you very much for your support mate, it mean a lot to me.
That's great tips for everyone who is struggling with gambling and they can help a lot.
That's great tip mate, that's what I'm doing this period and I feel a lot of better.
Thank you bro! Mental health is very dangerous thing and I had a lot of problem with depression and things such like that in the past (Still I have it sometimes).
I was thinking about visiting a psychologist but I'm not sure here in my country if its worth.
I updated this thread two days ago, so far 41 days without any kind of gambling and more than 81 days without playing on the slot-machines.
Yeah I know that kind words wont get me out of my addiction. Till now my journey is successfull and I honestly think that my addiction is gone, about 3 months without playing on the slot machines.
That reminds me those guys that could have bought a Ferrari if they forfeited their smoking addiction 40 years ago... Still their non-smoking peers don't have a Ferrari.
No regrets. Just anything you do serves a greater purpose. You cannot do anything in the future without the actions you took in the past and some actions need time to grow for the good or for the bad.
The most important thing is what you are currently doing and if this aligns with your values and if it sets you in the path of freedom of brain/soul (not financially).
You will die alone with your brain/soul, not with your money, business, power, lovers, friends or anything beyond your skin. So care first about your sole companion in life.
Great fucking job. That's how it's done dude,WE and only WE control ourselves,and when you keep that IN mind,there's absolutely nothing we can't DO.
That's great way of thinking and you are correct about everything that you said!
Thank you bro!
Yeah, I can agree - it's everything about controlling ourselves and our mindset.
It something that's definately worth doing. Psycologists have a way with words and often get right inside your mind to the root of the problem - they really are amazing people with great skills/knowledge.
Good luck! Gambling is the worst. You can't beat the system it will only beat you. The only way to profit off gambling is to own the casino.
Great.. to see your progress.
I hope You dont start trading now as the prices of BTC are going down ..
The house always wins.
Keep the note on your mind constantly.
Best of luck to you
Any addiction is a curse.
You should consider CBT Therapy(Google it) by an experienced Psychologist
Yeah, you're right bro. I was thinking long time about that. I'm just not sure if somebody in my city (Tier 3 country) is good psycologist and if it's worth going.
Yeah bro, that's correct. Gambling is one of the worsest addiction that exist and for sure nobody can't beat the system of casinos & sport betting houses.
Thank you bro! Also in my options trading with crypto-currencies is a lot of better than playing slot machines or roulette.
Thank you for your support mate. You're correct.
Yeah, I was thinking about that and I think that i don't need it at this moment because successfully till now I stopped with gambling.
So far 46 days without any kind of gambling and more than 86 days without playing on the slot-machines. This thread and your support helped me a lot to break this addiction.
Thank you a lot to all of you!
hey bro.This is may not good advice but you should try to trip with some acid or shroom.That shit help many people with addiction and depression.
Gambling related to dopamine level in your brain like other drug.
Hey mate, I tried something in the past so I guess that doesn't help me.
Thanks for the tip!
Thanks for share helpful journey.
Thank you for your support mate.
