I've start to gamble again.

:low::low::low::low::low::low::low:

this isn't good, first time in ages but I am scared I am back there. so far its not how much money I have lost, I can cope with that its the fact I am there and have the feelings/need too.


oh shit.

I got over alcoholism and drug addiction by REPLACING a negative with positive.

I used education to get my needs met for gradification.

Find something you really enjoy that has positive consequences, and spend the same amount of time at it that you would gambling.

For me it's sciences, I get a kick out of learning a new experiment to try, build the apparatice and get the materials together, learn all about how, and do the experiment.

Try learning electrolysis with batteries
How to Perform electrolysis, the cool way « Science Experiments

And then there is NO GUILT, and you learned something cool. And Never run out of things to learn :D

horses, machines all sorts really. I've not done it in ages but had a stupid e-mail saying 10£ free when you revisit us..

so far I have only lost 20 quid so thats ok as such (I know its not good) but its the fact I have started again which has upset me. I feel like I have failed myself.

So you do it online? Can you put some sort of block on it?
