I'm addicted to so many things and gambling is one I've lost

I'm addicted to so many things and gambling is one I've lost £100k this week and I don't even care, I'm on self destruct and I don't know what to do, I dont even want to think about what I've lost in the past month

i've literally sat there and thrown away thousands to punish myself...i'm new to gambler's anonymous and figure if i can stop for good, the money i've blown will be well worth it, because if i don't stop i know i'll end up losing everything.

Sorry to hear. I used to be a Casino floor Manager. I've seen it all.... The thieves, the people shaking so bad from the loss of money, yet still pooring more out to try and ( win) it back. Gambling is one of the absolute worst addictions there is. And like most, it stems from something else deep down like all addictions.

@decentguy we had classes that taught us what to look for and how to try to get people to call GA for help. If it persisted, we would finally ask the person to leave. Only once did we actually do this. The guy was so rich but would blow tons a day. We had to use the excuse that he was to loud and beligerant to enter the casino. But his family begged us to do so. Of course he went to other types of gambling.

If you need to talk, get back at me. I've talked and tryed to talk to many people about gambling. Often it falls on deaf ears. We had to take classes on it. Trust me, no one wants to see anyone lose their home, family, job or life.

@jim111 hey what do u mean you had to take classes on it

The things with me I don't have any emotions I dont make a noise if I win or lose. I've kinda become with drawn from normal life and that's one place where I can go and do what I want. I know its wrong and people struggle a lot and just blow so much money so I do feel bad like maybe I should just donate to charity......... To be honest I have no clue what I'm doing in life. Gambling is one small issue and I'm surrounded by loads. I want to find love but think I can't cause I'm fat then if any women shows any interest I just think its cause of the materialistic things I have and I'm just push people away !!!!!

@decentguy i feel same way but my case is view games !
