I've been gambling since i hit the arcades aged around 15. Never had control then but the money i had to lose was very small. My gambling issues have grown as my access to money allowed it. Most of my time and debt was lost sports betting (online). I've lost the last 12 years to compulsive gambling as well as getting myself into 10.5k's worth of debt. Im here to give everything i have to remain gamble free and share my story with others to help them along as they are helping me.

I haven't gambled for
