Gambling addiction hotline slang youtube

Postby Tazilkree В» 03.07.2019

.

My husband began gambling compulsively 2 years ago. I no longer recognize this man, and I do not love this man. Our 25 year marriage is crumbling - my physical, mental and emotional health is deteriorating - my house is a disaster - my life is a mess - and my spirit is slowly dying. I miss my husband desperately. I doubt that I will be as strong as so many of you here are. My heart aches at the same time my admiration grows for you all. My grievances will seem petty in comparison to some of your stories, but I sense that my last thread of hope may be dangling precariously from this site.

I have prayed to God for guidance and I believe He has sent me here to begin healing. Thank you all for sharing the good and the bad, and a very special thanks to you, Velvet, for your extraordinary mind and heart. Dear Adele Your grievances are not petty, you do need healing and I hope you feel you have come to a place that is right for you — you are certainly very welcome.

The most important line I feel in your post is that you feel your spirit is slowly dying and that is what I hope sharing time with us on this forum will change for you. If our spirits die it is because we allow them to die but you have the ability to change. There comes a point where I think we have to make a choice but I believe it is better to make choices when we are fully informed and that is what I would want you to be.

I cannot tell you what to do. I believe that given time you will know what is right for you. I was closing my computer, as I was going to bed, when I saw your post but I will write to you tomorrow. You were very brave to write such a post and I'm glad you did. If you read this before I get a chance to write again — please tell me a bit about what your marriage was like before the addiction took hold. Do you have children? You are not alone Adele. I will walk with you for as long as you need me.

I understand and will continue to understand, all you say. I don't know whether you know the words of 'Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow' but I hope they help. There are two days in every week about which we should not worry; two days which should be kept free from fear and apprehension. One of these days is yesterday with its mistakes and cares, its faults and blunders, its aches and pains. Al the money in the world cannot bring back yesterday.

Yesterday has passed forever beyond our control. We cannot undo a single act we performed. Yesterday is gone. The other day we should not worry about is tomorrow with its possible adversities, its burdens, its large promise or poor performance. Tomorrow is also beyond our immediae control. Tomorrow's sun will rise, either in splendour or behnd a mask of clouds - but it will rise.

Until it does, we have no stake in tomorrow, for it is as yet unborn. Any person can fight the battles of just one day. I will write soon Velvet. Originally posted by Chasing Pavements My husband began gambling compulsively 2 years ago.

I am so sorry for what you are going through. I was married to my gambling husband for thirty years before I summoned the courage to separate from him and it took me another three years to realise I was not responsible for him. You are in an abusive relationship even though you don't think you are.

If you have children living with you they are also being abused and your responsibility is to them not your husband even though he makes you feel responsible for him. My three children have been badly affected by their father and I have a lot of guilt about it. Don't forget that relationships are about being happy not miserable. I'm really sorry hanging by a thread my last post sounded really harsh having read it back. None of this is your fault, don't forget it took me thirty years to sort my problem out, when you're in the middle of it it's like dancing in shadows, you don't know where you are or what to think.

All I can say from my own experience is that you should try to be really strong, and bear in mind that generally gamblers are major manipulators. I wish you well and really hope that you will be ok.

Hi Adele I' so glad that God has also led you to this website, just like me. You will learn so much about the addiction and gain power by this. Don't think your problems are petty, your feelings are yours and you will not be judged.

I am hopeful that my hb can control his addiction someday, but I also realize that besides God he can only help himself. The sun is shining here today and I've decided to go outside and have a nice day.

Wishing you a good weekend and take care. X Berber. Your story belongs solely to you, you are asking for support to get the next chapter right — the outcome of your book is not determined by anybody else. Do you have family and friends who are aware of your worry? Unfortunately unless people have lived with the addiction to gamble, their opinions can be very narrow and not supportive. Personally I think it is best to tell others as a statement rather than asking for opinions.

You are going to get your knowledge here and you can make your own informed decisions with that knowledge. At no time will I tell you either to leave or to stay — everything will be in your hands. Does your husband accept he has a problem? Although it is not recognized professionally the following is a coping method that many of us have used at the beginning of our recovery to help us cope. Your husband is controlled by that addiction but you are not.

It is the master of threats and manipulation and you are not. When you speak the addiction distorts your words and your husband cannot comprehend your meaning. The addiction is all about failure for the CG which has no love for the addict or those who love them. However much your husband convinces you that he is in control — he is not. We can communicate in real time. Nothing said in that group appears on the forum. Please post soon, knowing you are among friends. But I couldn't read another post on my thread without at least a short post from me expressing my immense gratitude for this site and for your posts.

You are an angel on earth for "paying it forward" with your time, knowledge and humongous heart! Adele wrote the song "Chasing Pavements" after a breakup. She described the song as a hymn to lost love and regret.

She said, "It is me being hopeful for a realtionship that's very much over. The sort of realationship you hate when you're in it, but miss when you're not. Such melodrama! But I know I must Such is my life I had at least heard of Adele — I have even seen pictures but since Roy Orbison I have been in oblivion when it comes to pop. Your post gave me some thoughts having read why you chose your username.

Sometimes it seems there has to be enough damage behind before the CG realises that it is their addiction that is hurting them and those around them. As I have said previously I cannot tell you what to do but I do know that chasing after a CG is as useless as them chasing after their debts — nothing changes until someone stops and I think the non-CG, with knowledge, can stop their old behaviour and confuse the addiction..

Both chases are futile but when this is realised and accepted, in my opinion, it time to do something different. Running in the other direction is an option. Learning about the addiction and how it works, - putting the non-CG in the driving seat of their life is another option — it was mine. By looking after yourself and putting your interests first you change the status quo — you are refusing to live with the addiction controlling you — instead of running after it you are confronting it without words.

It is important to realise that we cannot stop a CG gambling — they need the right treatment to help them tip some of that addiction out to leave room for decent thoughts and love.

We have had CGs change their lives on this site, there are dedicated counsellors, rehabs and GA. CGs can and do help each other when they decide to dedicate their lives to being gamble free. You felt guided here and you are understood — your husband might need similar guidance t where he is understood. I have no idea why my CG decided, at the time he did, that he had had enough — I know we were estranged but he had made a rare phone call and I mentioned Gordon House — the rehab in the UK.

Two and half hours later he was applying and his roller coaster began to grind to a halt after 25 years. Most compulsive gamblers will answer yes to at least seven of these questions. In my opinion most members who have lived with the compulsion to gamble will also be able to answer yes to at leave seven of those questions. Maybe you could print them off — maybe he will read them and realize he is not alone — I hope it will help him realize that you are seeking help and treating his addiction seriously even if he is not.

I think it is not good to thrust them on the CG but to leave them where he will see them — to thrust them is to confront and the addiction will take control. Hope some of this helps. Ask any questions you like and I will do my best. Velvet - I have just popped on here - as I do so often since finding this site on May 1st - just to see if you or anyone else has posted since I last looked - selfishly I think, anxious to see.

Ell's was the first thread I read. For example, a specific player will need to score first before the other 21 on the pitch, and the team will need to win by a specific score line. And, you learn that alone does not mean lonely Our go here and friends adore him, and he has always been highly thought of and respected in his work environment.

Even if you know it's temporary at least you had some quiet. I put a call in to an attorney and then just sat there for hours, numb with the realization that my marriage and my life as I knew it was very likely about to come to an end. My question is which came first, the need to gamble or the need to wear masks?

I am not responsible for his gambling, I can't control it and I can't stop it. I wanted you to know that you are in my thoughts and there is lots to say. I see you getting stronger with every post, and that has given me courage to find better ways to refuse this addiction. Your gajbling is so complex — I think I have felt inept to respond with anything that would have been helpful. Hope you got through the weekend without too much trauma.
