I joined Gamcare to try and start a new life away from a destructive gambling addiction that was taking me to new lows the longer it went on. Month after month of losing a whole months wage on payday and then the lies that would follow. There is so much out there for me, but to take it I need to beat my addiction.

I haven't gambled for

57

days
