Hello! I am taking the first step to get help for playing and paying for an online bingo game.
A few years or so ago I began playing a particular bingo game/app that was free at first. I did not pay for anything at all, at first.... I even laughed and said to my hubby, “oh my gosh, I can’t believe people pay for chips to play this game!” or something close to it.
Well, he who thinks he stands, take heed, lest ye fall... Once I started paying for chips, I was hooked :-(
I recently read that apparently this type of game is geared towards women, along with some articles on how game developers hire psychologists, neuroscientists and marketing people to get people hooked on games.
There was a noticeable change in my problem after losing my father-in-law last year, which I believe, was a trigger for a ton of store up grief in my past. Especially because he was literally starved to death as his cancer was no longer treatable. Cancer is no stranger to me as I am a 5 year survivor of stage 3 melanoma. I also suffer from chronic pain as my treatment included a surgery that damaged nerves.
Since I attend another 12 step program, I am familiar with tools of recovery and the success gained from working the program.
Thank you to whoever reads this and I welcome your experience, strength and hope to aid in my recovery:-)
