This question most players ask themselves when they begin to realize that games have affected their lives.
Most players do not aim to lose all their money, but rather win big and buy all materialistic things they have always dreamed of. Gamblers are not selfish people; In fact, they enjoy shopping for their family and friends.
Compulsive players play their lives just to place a bet. It does not matter if a compulsory is up to five thousand dollars, they will still play until they lose all the money they brought. This is the reality of a coercionist. At the time they finally win, their egos sore is like a bird in flight. For this moment they feel like they are on top of the world. For them, there is no other way that they can get the euphoric feeling. This is what keeps a forced match from really wanting to stop playing.
When a compulsive match acknowledges that they always lose money, the reality sets in. They question themselves. I really want to stop playing? They decide yes, I want to stop playing. They feel good about that decision. They finally made the decision to end. The next day comes and goes. The co-ordinator feels good about themselves. All of a sudden, they get a call from a friend. Next thing, you know you are in the car and meet them at the game establishment. You now realize that you did not stop playing. You then play games with your mind and say only once more and I will end. On the way to the gaming industry, you begin to think about the big win and how to spend the money. You finally come and put your first bet. When the night goes on you realize you are on the way, you are at the top of the world and everything starts to crumble. You only have twenty dollars left in your wallet. What are you doing now? You reach your wallet and realized that you have a credit card that you can earn three hundred dollars. You go directly to the credit card and look for the shortest line. You borrows wonder why this line moves so slowly. When in reality it has only been a few minutes. You finally get the money and you start playing again. Before you know, you also lost the money. You finally decide to go home. In less than a minute after leaving, you start asking yourself, why did not I leave when I was up? How could I go and take three hundred dollars of my credit card. How could I lose all my money again? Tell my wife how could I do it again?
They finally come home again and have to meet the music. Once again they ask themselves: How could I do it again? They then decide that it is time to quit. The next day comes and they ask themselves, do I really want to stop playing? The logical answer is yes but the reality is no.
When a compulsive player no longer has any resources to play with, the reality sets in and they are willing to admit they have a game problem. I have met a person who participated in a gamers anonymous meeting and convinced that their problems were minimal compared to the people at the table. When a compulsive player no longer has any resources to play with, the reality sets in and they are willing to admit they have a game problem. I have met a person who participated in a gamer's anonymous meeting and convinced that their problems were minimal compared to the people at the table. One year passed and the same person returned to the same Gamblers Anonymous Group and their situation is now worse than the people he met at the first meeting. Do not let this happen to you or a loved one. Knowing that you have trouble playing and doing something about it can have an eternal effect on your life. It is time to take a day at a time.
