So I was a massive online only gambler. Never really liked bookies but very savy on the Internet and I would gambling online 24/7 If I could as I was really enjoying it at the time.

Until obviously I started to lose a lot of money and borrow money to increase my stake which has left me with £20k debt that will take 4 years to pay back.

Trying to not let it get me down and update my diary daily to see how much money I have saved from not gambling and how much closer I am to paying off my debts and being normal again.

I haven't gambled for

144

days
