Gambling addiction downfall definition

Postby Migrel В» 01.07.2019


And from then chasing the losses started and never stopped. I continue in this condition of putting more money trade for few days win at the beginning then losing it all for few months until i have lost all my saving and i have obtained a 5 credit cards and maxed all of them and lost it all, i have few loans here and there i have borrowed from my family after an almost a year I reach to the bottom where i really start thinking to kill myself.

Up to that moment i was completely un aware that i have a gambling addiction. I am in my recovery way but in the last two years I have replaced 5 or 6 times two of them was tough. But I have just lost it like this. Here on the forum you can share your experiences in a safe, supportive and accepting environment.

So, share as much or as little as you like but do try to stick to keeping just one thread in this forum so people know where to find you if they want to be updated on your progress or share something with you.

PS: Let me just remind you to take a look at our privacy policy and terms and conditions so you know how it all works! Hi Darkenergy and welcome. Well done on looking for help. I have known many people who gamble through the markets - it can be as much a form of gambling as any other.

Well done on the steps you have taken so far. See if you can get yourself banned from the sites you use to trade. You have stopped before and you can stop again. This time though you won't be doing it on your own - keep posting here.

How is this different than gambling?? I will keep it a habit to add a new comment daily this will keep me grounded and will suppress any foolish idea to start trading again. Thanks RG for the motivation, i am realy a bit in low mode from yesterday i hope tomorrow will be better,.

I know that I have to come over it, and the small progress that I have in the other aspects of life helps. Hi DE That is amazing progress. Well done. In one more week you have your first month done. Try not to look back but to accept that you gambled and lost and now that you have moved on from that. Keep posting! Well done darkenergy,I hope you continue to drink deeply from the joy of not being out of control.

But don't forget that it took you years to get here so you are unlikely to arrive at a solution in a handful of days ; 30 days to six years sort of ratio thing. Someone used to say to me back in the early days: hey Portnoy now you have stopped gambling there are three situations when you are most vulnerable to gambling again: firstly when you are really happy, secondly when you are really down I know of one indivdual who went back out for more action after 22 years: he came back to a GA meeting brimming over with self-pity and he was told unceremoniously by the chair that his problem was he had started counting the years and not the days and he was reminded that he should stay for the whole meeting and not, as was his habit, to slope off at the half way break!

There is no quick fix to this insanity. Work it on a daily basis and be grateful for any period of 24 hours you can achieve without gambling. Good luck. Well done DE, roadblocks are essential at the beginning and the thing is this Let me assure you, the best is yet to come, for me and for you! Well done on 27 days. Tomorrow will be four full weeks that you have been gambling free. I hope you are planning to do something nice for yourself to celebrate your achievement.

Great going,!! Dont think too much far ahead just take it as one day at a time.. All the best.. Well done on 36 days. Despite a hard week, you have persevered and stayed away from gambling. Reward yourself for that. May I suggest that instead of focusing on the fear of extra money, that you make a solid plan for what to do with that money. Perhaps you want to boost or build your savings.

Set up a new untouchable savings account and when you're closer to having that extra money, make a plan with you bank to auto transfer your extra amount into that savings account. That way you won't have to handle the money and maybe the temptation will be lessened.

Perhaps you want to travel somewhere. Same thing. Start reviewing and researching the place you'd like to go. Get excited about it.

See yourself there. Then, when the money is there, put a deposit on the trip and keep doing so until it's time to go and relax in a place you love.

Keep going strong. Each day that you choose living over gambling, you build your recovery muscle. My friend, investments also can be an addiction.

I used to have a friend that share your same forex adiction. I started gambling because of the same reason as you: a second source of income. Unfortunately few people succeed in trading and all that stuff. I have investments but in a safer way. I did not take the investment decitions and someone else does it for me. I identify with you in many situations: I also owe money and I am working hard to recover it but it will take a couple of years.

I did not take the investment decitions and someone else does it for me.? I have managed to recover from the financial consequences of the last relapse earlier than what I have expected, so the real challenge started today. I have payed all my bills for this month and transferred the extra money to a joint account, this will protect me from the temptation to trade with the this extra money. Life is looking a lot brighter for you now and well done on the actions you have taken.

Keep strong. Hello Brother Reading your story i was thinking that was just me, i have wasted 15 years of my life trading forex, and my losses though was not as much as yours were devastating, you are right, as a trader you do not realize you are merely a gambler until years have passed, no mattee how good trading strategy you have it will still be fascinating how one can click buy or sell and double his account or lose it all in minutes, pure gambling.

It took me 2 years to hit rock bottom and to realize that I was gambling and I have become an addict to gambling. NO there no difference it is worse because it has a cover "trading". I am keep posting to stay close from this forum's community and to always be reminded that I am a gambler, I have been visiting this forum less than what i have used to do in the first month, I guess this part of a relapse cycle " to think that your now having the control", in the last 2 years i have succeeded to stay out of gambling for 3 months for many times but after that i have relapsed, I am recognizing a relapse cycle that I have to break this time.

The cycle will start with recover financially and having extra money under your disposal done. Start having thoughts to trade "gambling again" started 3. Fighting your urges it a stage where al the road blockers are gone and it is only your rational you fighting the gambler you last time this stage took 10 days and it was as really tough. You are a very intelligent man darkenergy, you have came to realize in 2 years what i have failed to see in 15 years, only the last 3 years that i have realized the pattern you described above, having extra money after recovering from a financial set back, then thinking that you have control on trading then why not try and never let go of the dream of financial freedom e.

I was not able to find your journal to read your story and progress, I hope your are doing well in fighting this addiction. Observed a positive mind set here and see that you are in recovering mode applied and continue to use this systematically. You got this brother. I read your story and it makes sense getting out of debt and having money is a huge trigger for a relapse.

I never traded forex , but a similar type of margin trading don't miss the days of seeing my account being liquidated, totally gambling. It is the 97th day, My life is getting better but the trading" gambling " thoughts are popping up many times during the day. I have recovered financially so I am having some extra money and the gambling ideas comes with it. However this time i am determined, focused and I will never go back to day zero, I know once I put my first trade I will be a different person, my mind will not be functioning rationally and i will lose all the money that i have within few days.

A relapse starts with the planning and the preparation. The making time for - the checking out - the making the finances available.

You need to take action now to ensure that you don't go back to gambling. Talk to people here on a or in a support group to look at what is going on for you. Build up your defences and if you need to, hand over control of your finances. You must keep strong. I wish you well. Thanks, But i am just wondering is it a perminant illness. And i will never gain the control back again.

Or a time will come when i will get over this gambling urges and i can trust my self on the extra money again. And in the other hand if i can gain it back gradually when this should start i am now days free of gambling is it safe to try gradually from now or i should give it more time. I went back to gambling on my modality, slots, casino games after 3 years of abstinence. After a few weeks I was as bad as ever and knew I had to stop. I also tried gambling by other methods lottery, scratch-cards and although they didn't take off in the same way, I didn't like the mind games and emotions they invoked - so gave them up as well.

I now consider myself a non-gambler. I don't feel depressed about that. I feel my life has expanded a lot, now that I am not spending hours in rooms with no windows and clocks - watching bright flashing lights and spinning wheels.
