Did You Miss the Boat?

Good news - I have a chance to save my marriage...
Bad news - I have to stop all forms of gambling (primarily online poker)...

Good news - I can go to Vegas and play in the Blogger event....
Bad news - I can't sleep with anyone while I'm there...

Good news - I can still chat with my online "fake" friends...
Bad news - Since I won't be playing poker, it won't be the same...

Good news - I might rediscover interests outside of poker..
Bad news - I will miss my online adventures with all of you...

Good news - I will have time to bake Weak Player some cookies...
Bad news - I won't have the chance to try to win some Waffles...

So what boat did you miss? For those who didn't play the Poison one on one, you may have missed your chance to play in one of the most challenging and pleasurable Heads Up matches to be found...

Keep me in your prayers...

Well I have a problem with giving up 'gambling' I dont know your entire situation but if your not loosing the mortgage playing online poker whats the problem?

I think it all comes down to family management and poker management.

Rizen from what I can tell does an excellent job of it.

Anyway that is my 2 cent.

Good Luck

Sounds like your husband came up with some ultimatums.

I hope you came up with a few of your own.

Good luck with your marriage. Hopefully things will be worked out so that each of you can be happy without sacrificing things that mean a lot. You will be in my prayers through this tough time.

I was given this ultimatum at one point by my fiancee but she was willing to sit down and talk to me about it after venting and we came up with a schedule that works for both of us - mostly. Her main problem was me playing late at night while she was asleep because she says she cannot sleep without me. Anyways, it's different for everyone, but it's something that can be worked out if both parties are willing.

I had also made it clear that I was willing to walk away - be it poker or any other passion I have that someone demanded I give up if it wasn't causing harm to anyone.

Ouch. Bummer set of circumstances. I wish I had some good advice, but the best I can come up with is to do what feels right. Hugs, warm thoughts, and a seat at the table whenever you're ready.

No, I missed the boat! I was right there at the dock too.

I hope you get everything worked out for the best V. My prayers are with you and your family.

I hope this was the result of some discussion. If this was an ultimatum straight from him, without any agreement or give-and-take, you may just be prolonging things to no good effect. I hope I am wrong, and that this is the boat you want to be on. Best of luck.
