        Hi.  Just wanted to tell what has happened to me so I can help someone else who may need it.  I started online gambling with slots a couple of years ago and it has progressed to where I can't stop (addiction).  I don't have any other addictions and I'm 59 years old.  It is too convenient to be able to access this from home.  It could ruin my life and my marriage if I continue so this is what I'm doing about it.  I've contacted every casino that I can possibly use and I've asked them to block me from there site because I have an addiction.  They all have honored my wishes.  I also know that you can purchase Gamblock (search on google for it) and for very little money they can block all online gambling from your computer. 
        This is all very recent and I still try to find sites that I'm not blocked from but I'm trying to recover and I hope that none of you go through this but I'm certain that I can't be the only one. 
        Take care and God bless you all.

        That is about the only saving grace one can do, when they go too far.

        Funny how the casinos want you to play but when it comes to it being an "Addiction" they'll do everything they can to stop you.

        Good job there Hon, the desires will be strong to go back..Always

        As it was said in GA meetings;

        "No matter how many years go by, you'll only increase the last bet time. The next bet is just as close as it was before"

        Good thought to live by.

        (No, don't ask how I know this, it's self-explanatory)

        Thanks for sharing Janie, we all have our own addictions, since this isn't AA, I really don't want to talk about mine.  I am glad you realized how bad it was for you and found that site before it ruined any part of your life hun.  I will keep you in my prayers.
