I have reached the point in my pokie playing where I need to stop!! Hopefully expressing this here will be a start on the no pokie playing track for me. My last visit to the pokies I lost quite a bit of money which my husband does not know about. I am so over throwing my money away but it is definitely addictive, which I was so smug about, saying no that won't happen to me but I realise now how easy it is to be hooked. My starting goal now is to focus on staying away from the casino.

good on you for making your decision.

I know how hard it is to stay away from those machines, so If I can offer you any advice, ring the helpline and get counseling asap.

Ban yourself from everywhere within 100kms and do it now.

If you're like me, even with counselling and a ban you will still struggle - sorry but its true. Those machines can really get into your head.

good luck and come back and let us know how youre getting on.
