Poker Addict - by Pegasus


September 12th 2006 04:43
I've been so good! I haven't touched a machine for 3 whole days. Doesn't sound long I know but hey it's a long time for me. I've been thinking about my failed hypnotherapy treatment that I undertook about a year ago. It cost me $180 for an individual session. The guy took my money and created a CD that was specifically tailored to my poker machine addiction. It didn't work. I was hypnotised. I listened to the CD every night at the same time before I went to sleep. But I kept gambling regardless of the hypnosis CD. Anyway, I've been thinking that perhaps I should try it again now that I'm serious about shaking this addiction for good. The hypnotherapist visits here about once every 6 months so he's about due to visit again pretty soon. Hopefully this time I can use the CD to its full advantage. I wonder about other people's experiences with hypnosis? A lot of local people attended the group therapy where he hypnotised people who wanted to lose weight and give up smoking. But I never followed up their results.

Hey Kylie, my $0.02 is that it may be a question of how much you want to give up playing. What are you willing to do? Hand over control of your bank account to someone else? Go to see a therapist every day instead of going to the club? Move somewhere where there are no clubs in easy reach?

Or maybe you just need a new addiction!
