Hi all havent posted on here for quite a while. I struggle with my mental health and have never really been happy since my divorce back in 2014. I am a compulsive gambler and had lots of issues and losses . Banned myself from all online bookmakers a few years ago. But just recently in last 6 months got seriously into shares and then spread betting. Was doing ok and reasonably well up. Had a redundancy too so played with that along with credit card funds. Not good I know. Over last few weeks things not so good and the enivitable chasing losses and becoming more reckless. My mood swings, depression, doom have not been great and affecting me and performance in my new job. I lost £6k and now j just think why and what I should of done with this. Had my daughter over to stay the weekend and I felt so bad that we couldnt do much. It's like I can never be happy
I think the worst feeling after losing is thinking of all the nice things you could have spent that money on - it happens to me too after I've gambled and lost.
I can't really offer advice as I'm only 6 days GF, and also working on a path to a better future, but just here to sympathise with you and wish you well and hope things get better for you! - There are lots of people on this forum who can give good advice so I've found it's helped me the last few days just logging in for 10 minutes a day and reading a few of the stories.
Wish you all the best.
