I became a gambler later in life, but within a year of starting I was totally addicted and well on my way to destroying my life. In less than 3 years I had spent my entire retirement savings of over three quarter of a million dollars, and I was precariously close to loosing my beloved family.
I had come to the point in my life that I had no money, I owed everyone, I was loosing my home and family, and I had no hope to ever end this vicious addiction. I wanted to end my life; I could see no other way out.
I decided to give it one more shot… I’m into my third month of being a non gambler and from that morning, I have had no urges (huge!) and have not gambled once. Occasionally, I will think, Wow! I don’t think of gambling, yeh! At 60, I am rebuilding my life. I have a good job now and some money in the bank. *
