Hi everyone.

I was gamble free for a month or two, I'd even signed up to gamstop and blocked myself from all the sites.

However one of the online bookies managed to call me with a recorded message offering me world cup bonuses. Like a fool, I logged and somehow managed to deposit money. And lost it. Of course.

It was then the chasing urges came back, harder than ever before.

This was last Wednesday, since then I've lost 500 and have taken out payday loans to cover it, on the hope I'll make it back.

Now I'm at rock bottom, no more credit available to me and my monthly outgoings leave me with hardly anything for the rest of the coming months.

I've started a blog to help express my feelings. Happy to share if anyone wants to follow

Hello Fireboy83

Welcome to the forum. sorry to hear about your lapse. unfortunately GAMSTOP doesn't yet have every UK site on board yet. when you next have access to money, do you think it would be a good investment to try some blocking software?

I can see you have also started a diary and had some responses there so I won't say too much on this thread, but we wish you well with your recovery and look forward to hearing more about your journey.

Best wishes

Deirdre
