        Hi all,

        i just wanted to write a thread explaining my situation,

        firstly, the reason i named this thread (I should stop gambling) is because I SHOULD, i dont work and i struggle as it is and the little money i do have left i gamble with, then even sometimes i gamble with the money i should pay bills with, it is getting out of hand to be honest, i try soo hard not to gamble sometimes, and i even close accounts on certain websites to stop myself, but what do i do, i always go and unlock the accounts and deposit again, i cant save money either, when i have spare money i just dont like seeing it in my bank account.

        I also cant get gambling out of my head, im 28 years old and i have basically gambled all my life, starting from going to blackpool every weekend with family and going into the arcades and then my dad played cards with us for money of course, it has always been part of my life and it is soo hard not to do, i try and fight it soo much but it is sooo hard.....

        also i have met someone now online and this person is coming to live with me next year, so i really really need to sort this problem out, not just for me but for my new partner too.
        It is getting too much for me to cope with, what is worse too is this person also likes to gamble, but this person can control it, (i wish i could lol)

        the reason im saying this person is because i dont want to talk to personal if you know what i mean .

        you know what else, i even tryed ringing gamble aware, and i left them a message and never got called back, and i tryed a few times and even asked why they didnt ring back, they just said they must have lost the message, and low and behold it happened 3 times they never called me back, so i couldnt even get help from a group either, soo yes here i am on a gambling forum about deposit and no deposit codes for casinos, and now im pretty much asking for adivce or anything, even though the advice will probly be basic info i already know, but i just dont know what to do.

        i didnt mean for this thread to be this long either o well, at least it gives you all a chance to get to know me a bit better.... so yes, if anyone can give any advice of what i can doo, i would really appreciate it, i need to sort it out and try get a grip of it before my new partner moves in with me so we can have a better life....

        thanks for reading and gl all

        Been there, done that. Not the partner thing but the gambling thing.  I am in deep chit if my $700 Slots of Vegas check doesnt arrive by September 26th. 

        The gambling aware thing is minor.  I called suicide prevention 1 time and got put on hold.

        If you really want to stop gambling perhaps you should use the - voluntary self exclusion - so that they won't let you reopen the accounts and do it again when you fall prey to your own weakness...

        Well, when you are having a moment of clarity like now, go exclude yourself from every casino you can find, just to give yourself a chance... find a new one and block yourself while you are still struggling to not gamble there... if you slip, get back on and continue your blocking campaign...

        I am not sure where you live, but Gambler's Anonymous is pretty much worldwide these days... you don't have to do it alone... If there is not a group near you, join an online GA group... of course all of this depends on you really wanting to quit.

        Does your new partner know what is going on? They should, cause if they move in with you then it is going to be their problem too.

        thank you, and yes my partner does know what i am like regarding the slots, the thing there katt is this lol, i have signed up to probly 90% of them on the internet, so blocking them all will be very very hard work, i cant even remember half of them, about 60% of them was just for the no deposit and i never deposit in them anyway, i only deposit in the trusted ones, but if i blocked all the trusted ones then all the others would then get a shot at me depositing and i would never in those cos some are rogue and so on, so yes i do get what you are saying, and i have done the self exclusion a few times, and it is just soo hard, i will have to try and close all then if i can remember them all, and somehow just try my hardest, even though it is hard, thanks for help again

        You really need to stop gambling... cold turkey.

        You are 28yrs old and life has alot more to offer than thinking about gambling 24/7. 

        Back in 2005, I was really in deep with online gambling.  I would deposit thousands a day.  I finally went to GA and stopped Oct 10,2006. 

        I now only gamble a very small bit.  If I felt myself getting back to my old habits, I would be back to a meeting in a second. I would love to go to a land casino but I stay away.

        I should say.. I was crying like a baby the first time I was going to go to a meeting.  Non gamblers (or those that don't have a problem) are strictly not allowed (at this one at least), they let my husband go with me, I was that upset and ticked off. 

        After a couple days, it got easier.  Trust me. 

        Step away from the computer.  PM me anytime if you need some support....

        Realizing gambling is too big a part of your life is the first step and I am very proud of you for taking it.

        Hang in there.

        I don't know the circumstances around your unemployment but getting yourself a little job you can be proud of yourself for might be helpful. You can exclude yourself as suggested but you will find a way if you've if got the itch and nothing else to do. You've got something to look forward to with a new life and a new partner. Make the best of it LuckyRJ.

        Hi Lucky,

        Your honesty alone to come to a public forum and speak so openly is def a step in the right direction.

        You can use a program on your computer that will block all casinos. Unfortunately by doing that we will here at LCB lose you in the process because of the keyword "casino" in the name.

        As well as having the blocks that won't allow access you need to learn your own self control. You can't tell yourself you will play once to twice here and there, no more then drug or alcohol dependent person could. Playing only free chips won't work either as it will only give you more of craving to play.

        There are plenty of support groups online you may want to try.

        Good luck to you RJ.

        I screwed that one line up which I am known to do.  I combined 2 different 1 liners.  Go figure.  See what happens when u get old and your sinuses make your head feel like 100 lbs.  Here are the 3 one liners u should always remember:

        I called suicide prevention and they hung up on me.
        I called dial a prayer and got put on hold
        I was going to call 911 but couldnt remember the phone number.

        How embarrassing to mix 2 one liners up.  I wouldnt have realzied it if it wasnt for Gabby and Lips.
