Ok hello people
I've just signed up to this forum because quite frankly I have had enough and you know what it's my own bloody fault!!! I'm a 31yr old Female Married with No Children. I started gambling bout 5yrs ago started of with small bets .30cents then next minute I'm betting $1.50/$5.00 I've continuesly lied to my husband where the money is going I've always have and he's always believed me which is selfish of me but at the time I thought 'oh cool he doesn't know where it is goin' so last night Dec 15th 2014 hubby says 'Did u go to front office again meaning our bank' I say 'yes I did' he says why and where did $400 dollars go?' At first I lied said I went to the doctors blah blah blah' but I told him I went to the club and played pokies with it then he's cracked it which I don't blame him. I blame myself soo sooo much I try and STOP!!! But I just keep goin back like something or someone is dragging me my husband says I've spent over $30000 just this year on pokies so I'm going to do my own Challenge if you wanna join me by all means join me we will do it together 6months Starting January 1st 2015 until June 1st 2015 but you need to be TRUE TO YOURSELF if you want just message me we can get thru it together I know it's going to be hard for me because my urges take the best of me but I'm determined to STAY TRUE TO MYSELF and my Family comes First!!!!

Hi CC, i understand your lying. I have done that for many years to my husband. I finally decided to tell him the truth 2 months ago. I had a major panic attack because i thought he would leave me. We are currently building our first home, and i managed to gamble away 12k of our savings and got 12k in loans and gambled that. I am at the point where if i do not change now (been gambling for 18 years) i will loose everything. I am now making a commitment to come to this forum often and speak to people and hopefully help each other, to help me help myself and others. I have since been to the pokies today after 2 months of nothing and now im afraid i will go back to my bad ways. I am going to take that challenge commencing right now. Can i ask how are you going?
