Am i an alcoholic or a compulsive gambler? Or both?
I think love gambling and i think I love drinking. But really, they're both killing me slowly. I have little interest in one without the other. I dont care for people and small talk, im of average intelligence and find little joy in life other than when I'm drinking and gambling. I've suffered one major trauma but believe that everyone will suffer an equivalent to mine during their lifetime. What am I? All replies will be cherished

I don’t know how old you are but look back at things that made you happy when you were younger. I felt that I was spending too much time, gambling online so I looked at it that way.

Remembered how much I used to love fishing but hadn’t done much for years. Made the effort to get back into it and now I am so glad that I did.

I am just about done with gambling, especially as Providers and Casinos have become too greedy and made it such a horrific experience and not sustainable any longer. I would love everyone to stop gambling and let these leeches, end up where they belong.

You know what you are.

It's difficult to accept it when deep inside, this so called "joy" is in fact a black hole that will never end.

When you gamble, you escape somewhere in this dark place . Sometimes not far. Sometimes you get lost. Sometimes it seems there is no way back.

Why would you care about a different opinion than yours? You want to comfort yourself and get help to continue the misery? You can put an official green check mark beside this statement:

I am what I want.
I want what I need.
I gamble instead.
I am lost again.

Maybe it's time to sleep now
