You could also bring a buddy with you that will hold money for you and give you playing money sporadically and tell you when it's time to go home if you are losing money. A simple, "Hey, you just lost $200. It's time to stop playing while you still have $800 left!" And not give you anymore of the $800 that you still have left.
Guy "won" less than his bet and the slot machine had the audacity to tell him he got a big win! SMH! Also, the Nintendo cartridge is so much more important than the Nintendo console. Without the cartridge, the Nintendo console is just a useless box.

I'm guessing you didn't know you'd become addicted when you started this, if I'm understanding your time frame, less than a year ago.

So now you know this, it's time to step back from it, whether with the help of GA or on your own. Probably need to get completely away from it, but maybe you can set a future goal to play x amount you can afford to lose, on y future date. Then you have something to look forward to, but you've budgeted to only lose (at worst) what you can afford to lose.

But I don't think you've played long enough to be hard core addicted . I could be wrong, and you probably should consult an expert to find your best course.

Addiction can and does happen quick- youcould smoke crack 2-3 times and be hard core addicted
Nathan's example should not be used ever- that's an awful thought to try

What is wrong with having a friend watch your money for you and make you stop when you have lost too much money?

Well let's start with the obvious- if you don't want your friend to give the money why would you bring it in the first place

No, it's more like a designated driver at a party whose job it is to be the mature, sober, responsible voice of reason. The friend at the casino is there to give you a little spending money and cut you off when you lose too much.
