Hi Katie, how are things with you? Sorry to read about the few weeks in your life. How are you getting on? We were both doing so great at the end of last year. Are you ready to build up some more vital gamble free days?

Yes Dan thanks for asking. I'm OK. Kinda still trying to build a relationship with money. After so many years of gambling it will take a while for my head to value it and not fear it. I will try to focus on living my life and stop checking my account at least 10 times a day?. Madness !

I know the feeling all too well, Katie.

Keep grinding away at it and a better life is just around the corner. 

Don’t stop believing in those dreams. They can be a reality. It’s all in our hands. 

Take care x

Still not gambling. I have searched for new sites to join but have made it so difficult for myself that I loose interest and the gambling mist passes. I guess the longer you stay off the sites the scarier they become to reassess.life is calmer

Hi Katie,

​Your story sounds so like mine, working in mental health, checking bank account 20 times a day. It does get better, try CBt therapy, it really is very good. Wishing you all the success in the world.Julie xx

Hi all just had a recent relapse. Now I have just registered with Gamstop. Hoping that this finally frees me. Feels so final, feels scary that that false big win will never now come? However I have cleared my credit cards with a loan and know in my heart or hearts that it would only be a matter of time until I maxed them out again..hears hoping for a peaceful existence

I had the same fear nonchaser but it was more scary for me to keep the doors open so I had to shut them. Keep going.

So first few emails arriving today from casinos that I never knew I had access to saying now excluded do to Gamstop. I can actually say I feel life has begun. My access has been taken away, it's the strangest feeling of freedom.
