Hi Guys thought I would try this out as I’m currently in a bad place gambling wise. I lost £1700 today and I’m 18 too me that’s a big amount so you can imagine I feel abit bad about it. I don’t play for money as such I’m more of an adrenaline player and always use money I need to gamble. I downloaded a software (Gamban) and joined GameStop along with blocking gambling transactions on card and joining this forum. I hope I can start a fresh new journey where gambling will not play a part in my life... but we shall see.

Hi, Sorry to hear that. I’m 19 and in the same boat as you. Really screwed everything up since lockdown started. Down nearly £10,000. What a waste of money. If you need anybody to chat to feel free to reach out may do us both some good

Sounds like you’re doing the right things and it is a lot of money but accept it is gone as wanting to chase losses is one of the things a lot of people struggle to get past! 
take it as a learning curve and since you’re so young, hopefully it won’t effect your life too much! The last thing you need or would want is years of gambling addiction!

stay strong and all the best jadie x
