    I very recently joined a forum for alcohol moderation. While this doesn't really address gambling at all, I though those struggling with anything might find it as beneficial as I did watching this video:

    You must register/login in order to see the link.

    Or not, you've wasted more that 15 minutes of your life doing something else.

    A two week break from gambling will be very good for me. I got to a point with the vision loss that little else was enjoyable or even possible, not reading or tv or cooking.

    In the Harm Reduction part of my equation, the fact that I got a brand spanky new bank card I can just willy nilly deposit from was not good for me.

    For almost two years, I've been gambling higher, and more frequently. But the last two months have been ill advised overall. I couldn't even see to cook, or come read here.

    I've managed a harm reduction kind of strategy, and that I'm not a raging alcoholic by now or 450 lbs is or homeless in a ditch is part of that model.

    With the ability to just deposit willy nilly from my bank account, the true answer is to limit my ability to do that. Which I have not yet done.

    Gambling has created more issues in my life than alcohol ever did. Ideal, abstinence would be best. But I'd like to avoid ideal, and continue to enjoy my "hobby".

    I am so inspired by my dealing with my smoking, that I'm thinking making other changes in my long term health and well being might be not only a good thing but possible.

    Connecting to others seems to be pretty key to reducing/avoiding addiction. I'm buying that on a personal level.

    I chose to share this in this part of the forum, because I know being better is a journey, and not everyone's destination or journey is the same.

    Thanks for sharing Jasminebed, very inspiring. I am so sorry that your vision is still this poor and I do hope something can be done about that in future.

    I myself have one big addiction, much more serious than gambling; I am a very moderate drinker but I smoke two packs of cigs every bl***y day (and sometimes 3:eek:). So, I applaud you for dealing with the worst (in my book No. 1) addiction: tobacco. Kudoz!
