IdioticM's profile

I joined gamcare as I'm a compulsive gambler. I can go days without putting a bet on, but when I do I can't stop till the money is lost.

I don't have a debt such as pay day loans, just a credit card I've never used to gamble with. My major financial worry is constantly being in my overdraft half way through the month and not being able to save for my wife and my future.

I haven't gambled for

37

days
