SEL87's profile

I've been a gambler for 10 years or so now but really heavy this past year,I won 7000 last year which was the worst thing that could have happened,after booking a great holiday for me and my family I had the whole lot gambled and had taken out a loan before we even got on our holiday. My problem is sports betting mainly football,I've now had to top up my loan twice and owe the bank 6 grand because of chasing my losses for a year..I hate the grip that it has on me and I know I've hurt my loved ones through it all but now with my girlfriends help I'm ready to cut my losses and concentrate more on her and my family.We have started to save for a mortgage for a house now and I've got 1500 saved over the last 15 weeks and my aim now is to get my current account back in order so I can pay off my loans regularly and enjoy my life gamble free,as I write this I am 2 days in but feel good about myself for the first time in a long time,with the help of this website and everyone on it aswell I know il get through this and save for our house and live life happy free from the gambling world.

I haven't gambled for
