Hi, I have had a serious problem with gambling for 4 or 5 years now, I have lost everything, my partner and my kids. I havnt gambled in a week now. An I don't feel the urge to gamble either. My partner will not take me back and I'm scared its to little to late. But my mental health has gone down hill aswel. And its all because of gambling.

Yes I am finally getting help, i had my first counselling session on Monday, an I really enjoyed it. But I have still lost my partner an kids, my partner says she has lost all love for me, but everyone keeps saying give her time but I'm scared its too late, but that will not stop me getting in the way of beating my addiction, I havnt had a bet in 9 days now an still motivated than ever to keep that up.
