Hi, I'm new on the site. I just found it today and thought it'd be nice to be with people in the same boat.
A little about me is that I'm 22 and didn't really think I had a problem until about a year ago and have struggled to stop since. I've tried to stop plenty of times and failed, even telling people I'd stopped when I knew I hadn't. I was losing up to a few hundred a month. I've lost at least a couple of grand over the course of the last 2 years, which really sobers me up to think about. I had a problem with online slots but I've now got BetBlocker on both my computer and my phone. Had it on my computer a bit longer and it definitely does the trick. Hoping my phone is the final straw to get me past this! Anyway, I just had a bit of a relapse the last couple of days which has spurred on this account and this post.
Thanks for reading if you have, I'm hoping to use this site to keep a diary for myself of how I'm doing to make sure I don't slip back on bad habits!
