Hi, this is my first time seeking some type of help. I absolutely hate gambling and I can't understand why I have no conscious thought process when I'm at the pokies. Even though I know I'm spending money I shouldn't I don't actually think about it, I just withdraw it and keep going. The only time the consciousness comes back is once I've lost and leave, and then I think, why did I do that? I can't understand how I have no train of thought, at the time. It's very frustrating as I feel I am an intelligent person, yet I'm not very smart and make stupid dumb choices that my own rationality does not understand, and I just don't know how the whole mechanics of it works. As I know all these things are bad/wrong, but yet I still do it? WTF? Why do people have absolutely no control over them selves, I hate it. I hate that I even try to gamble and I'm still working out how it even started as I remember once upon a time, noone I knew gambled, it wasn't even a thought. Now it's so prevalent everywhere, its disgusting and ashaming. I've absolutely had enough after spending today over $870 trying to win just a couple hundred. I still don't know how I kept doing it as I almost feel like I'm not even there when I do this. TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF MY NEW RETURN BACK TO MY FORMER GAMBLING FREE SELF. I am so annoyed and disappointed in myself I've absolutely had enough of letting myself down, and being an idiot all the time. I'm now returning to the smart person I was, and am going to self ban myself from every single bar/pokie lounge in my area, in the next area and in the city. FEELING DETERMINED! sorry for bleating, but I just need to tell someone what I'm doing so I know I have to follow through and the first person I'm telling is MYSELF!
