Hi, been awhile since I been on here. I went without gambling for almost a year. Had a slip up before Christmas and then this time only lasted 60 days. Last night I gambled a large amount of money and exhausted all my funds available. This went on all night until about 8am this morning. I’m in a right mess and have had to ring in sick as I’m in no state to be in work.  I’m currently in the process of finding a way to pay my bills and survive the next month but this time, this doesn’t even seem like the main issue. I’m more concerned about the fact I keep doing this. I really believe I will never over come this. I can patch things and get to a good state again but sooner or later I’m gonna do it again. I can get the help and support and things will be good but once the time has passed and it’s not really spoke about any more, il just end up doing it again. I can’t keep going on like this. I really do wish I could have been addicted to drugs rather than gambling cause this really is killing me

Hi John.

Handover your finances to a family member or friend and stick all the blocks in place.

Many post on here advise this and I have just done the same. This would be a positive step.

Not sure about your comment regarding drugs. You wouldn't rob a granny for your adiction or enter someones property at night and take their worldly goods.....what I am saying is it could be worse.

Keep your chin up pal and get the help you need to sort it out. I'm doing the same at present due to digging a hole for myself....again.
