I know this is not the best way but it works for me. I do not gamble in any of the casinos in our area and there is one just 22 miles from my home. I used to live to go down there and as you say no stress of thinking, just play the machine. I begin to realize just how much I was spending and had to just stop. I only play when I go on a vacation and I know ahead of time exactly what I will spend and no more. I do not expect to win or come home with my spending money but I do have fun and I like to see shows and people watch so it works.
I agree with Nanners, you have much on your plate and you have my prayers too.
