I've finally come to the realisation today that I have a massive gambling issue and have sank nearly £xx into gambling with no return at all, kept thinking just that one big hit and all will be right with the world.
I have only told one person who is my best friend but she has now moved away and I'm starting to struggle with coping again. I have mental health problems that I'm facing on top of this and gambling was my escape. I took the plunge on the weekend to register with gamstop but now I feel like a drug taker going through withdrawals and actively looking for places to gamble that are not registered with gamstop. I really want to stop and have reached out here to gamcare for support and hoping people here will have words of advice or just someone that is happy for me to speak to privately just to have one to one contact.
