    Actually I'm not.. But I haven't been checking other threads aside from once or twice in total, instead of ten times a day.

    Dead on my feet. So much work to do, get up, work all day, eat, get sick, crappy sleep, get up and do it again.

    Really miss having something to look forward to of an evening instead of laying awake in bed.

    there are literally a million alternatives; video games, tv, books, movies, games with family, working out etc
    if youre truly feeling this way, you need more than the forum. Sure, people are friendly and encouraging - but all we can offer is friendly advice, not professional help

    I really worry about your mental state. It doesn't matter how many things you could do there is no enjoyment in anything what so ever because of the way you are feeling :(

    Have you gone to get professional help yet? I really hope you do and I mean really soon.

    Please take care :)

    Dude, it takes 3 weeks on average to overcome that horrible feeling of craving for slots again. 3 weeks. What is 3 weeks of your time. After this the craving becomes significant less and you start feeling better, as your mind turns into a more normal state again. feeling down, depressed, is a normal proces.

    Think of this; online slots are toxic as hell. You dont have to be an addict to become a gambling addict. Maths and algorithms are crafted in such a way, to lure you into more more more more more. This business stinks. It's rotten.

    3 weeks.

    Thanks mate, and for all who are watching my progress.
    Thanks @Casinomeister for the bump into the forgotten zone.
    I know how the addiction cycle works, I've been working it my entire life. It'd been almost 6 weeks, I've done almost 3 months once before.
    People have noted I have depression, yes, I do have major depressive disorder- have my entire life- gambling has been an easy way for me to mitigate it up until now.
    Now I just have a life full of responsibility, lacking of any reward or escape.

    I don't know what I want from this thread, my life is fucked, always has been and forever will be now I imagine.
    Maybe someone will see a glimpse of themselves as I was 18 years ago and think maybe this isn't such a great way to deal with depression, although for the life of me I don't know any other way.

    Anyway.. always remember you have a choice, and if you choose to gamble, at least enjoy the ride while you can.

    Hi

    There is medication for depression. If you have been living like this your entire life there is a chemical imbalance in your brain that is making you feel this way. If you had a diabetes would you take medication? Yes. If you had a broken arm, you would get a cast? Yes.

    You DO NOT have to live with depression. It is not curable but it can be helped.
    The new medications out there have been improved and have very little side effects.

    Your world will change.

    Go see your doctor. TODAY.

    Thank you. I've tried at least 7 different legally prescribed drugs over the years, as well as a few not legal, different therapies and psychologists and psychiatrists. It's not through lack of medication or attempted therapy that I remain unhappy- it's just my brain.

    I watched Joe Rogan podcast last night and it had Canadian comic Dave Foley. Huge fan of that guy and he mentioned many times and pleaded with viewers, if you have depression go see a doctor and get on a pill. Test out various ones. They work and save alot of heart ache and lives and change your entire life...including his. He expressed the exact same symptoms you are and how they were fixed.

    You have been given the info you need and pretty much everything anyone here can do for you. Hopefully you listen to some advice and make a doctors appt today.

    Thank you again. But it's not a matter of me not taking the pills or seeking help. I've done all that, many, many times. I guarantee if you can name an anti-depressant I've trialed it for at least 6 months unless there were severe side effects.

    Ah thats too bad. Glad to see you have tried things. Keep going there is so much out there now, so much has advanced..from meditation, to working out, to various diets...and other forms of medication. Make sure you have a doctor that cares. I work in the medical field for the past 15 years and there are too many doctors out there that care more about getting the wait time down than connecting with their patient.

    Im sure you're not new to this and probably have looked into alot of what we are suggesting. Just trying to help is all. I have seen alot of depressed people find an answer after searching for a long time over my years.

    I had different pills for depression and they are not always a good solution. My body reacted pretty heavy to most of them.

    I have my ways to deal with my depression. Doing sport when it kicks in helps me, but everyone needs to find his way and yes life can be really bad. And often it feels like there is no way out and everyone telling you that there is a always way but not which way.

    But what I can tell is, that small changes can have a big impact. No one is wrong when they say that you should try something new.

    Endorphins is the natural 'medication' for depression, exercise increases the release which targets the neurotransmitters in the brain triggering the feel good factor :)

    Get with the programme, try jogging and increase the distance every few days - I know you have to have the motivation but once you feel the 'hit', you will crave it again.

    ....tomorrow is another day and the start of a new life, enjoy your baby whilst you can.

    Think positive, every day you wake up, having zero stress related to gambling. It's a good thing!
