New to the site my gambling problems started around 18 months ago in this time I have lost over 30 thousand pounds mostly on online roulette I would say at least 25 thousand of this has been chasing the original money I lost I just can't believe how fast you can get into so much debt I have now left myself with bank loans and credit cards to the max I am now struggling to pay I feel like I am now working just to pay off my debts its left me really hating myself for what I have done.

Hey Harrison, welcome to the forum. Roulette was my poison too -lost a fortune too. My story and many others are on here and I hope they will provide some guidance. Stepchange (debt charity) can help with your finances - they are brill! 

If you can (you might find excuses not to do this), hand your finances to someone else so you can seriously focus on your recovery. Consider getting some counselling- I have been to two - one great, one useless. So you need to be clear about what you want to get out of the sessions and if they are not working say so and try to get someone else. Wish you every success.

Thanks for the advice I will give stepchange a call I think I have finally realised I will never win this money back and so I have to deal with the debt and do my best to stay away from the online gambling it is difficult especially when these online sites send you emails offering you bonuses just to get you back into there Web.

Yep, it’s difficult not to chase your losses - there is always a ‘what if’.  Unfortunately the big win never comes and anyway if it did it would go straight back to them at some point so stopping now and accepting your financial loss will prevent you from making bigger losses in the future, both financial and emotionally.
