Enough is enough

I am sure others can relate to my story so I won't get into the details. The point is I am certain there is more to life than gambling. I am so annoyed that I have told myself I would stop only to go again. I am one who gambles to relax and when bored. I think if I read posts here I will gain some valuable insight. I know it is my choice and so many things in life are out of my control, so gambling is something I can stop.

Of course you can stop!

As you can tell from the stories on this website, people of all backgrounds are inflicted with the gambling bug.

I always emphasize this point because it worked for me: FOCUS/MEDITATE ON WHAT YOU WANT.

How NOT to focus on what you want, "I want to stop gambling."

How to focus on what you want, "Everyday I want to go to the gym, for a walk. I want to save money to travel, to write..."

All the best.

A new beginning

Thanks! I will keep those thoughts in my head. I got through work today and now I am watching a movie.
