Hi new here.  


Hi guys, I signed up to gamstop on the 6th feb but I’ve failed and managed to sit up another account using a different details etc! I now have no money after my wages been paid in. I can’t talk to anybody about it not even my partner as he just wouldn’t understand and just shouts at me! 

today I’m a failure

Hey Try adding gamban to your device, there is a 7 day free trial and it's pretty solid in how it works. There used to be a way around it but the latest version is full proof or at least I can't find a way around it. Good luck

Hello @melanie089,

Sorry you are facing a tough situation and not feeling able to open up to your partner or anyone about your gambling problem. You have taken a huge step with coming here today.

You are not alone and I'm sure your post with be met with lots of support and encouragement.

I'm concerned and I would encourage you to contact us on our Helpline on 0808 8020 133 and our 1:1 Livechat are both open 24 hours every day. Our advisors can talk you through tools and strategies to help you stop gambling, and options for free treatment so that you have ongoing support. 

I understand, you have found a way to gamble despite using Gamstop. We recommend taking a multi layered approach when wanting to restrict access to online Gambling. It might be worth installing Gamban, a blocking software which blocks gambling content on up to 15 devices. We are offering the free license, so come through to our helpline and we can provide this to you. If you haven't already, contact your bank, a lot of banks offer a functionality to freeze gambling transactions.

Hope this helps a bit.

Wishing you all the best

Hi, I am new too. 

I made my biggest win ever last week which actually pulled me out of my financial hardship. That money was free from bills etc. Pure savings lets say. I've never had that much money in my account ever. I played it all back...... Im devastated. I can't tell to my partner he would be so mad. Also I feel shame to tell.

Im about to block the sites. And read other peoples story however my mind still messing with me. I believe if I block and stop I will make that money back by saving my salary.
