Coming to terms with the losses  


It's been a few days since I posted and am still feeling as pitifully pathetic as I was then... I am really struggling to accept how much money I've effectively P***ed in to the wind. I'm sat here in dire need of some household items and my kids need a few things and I can't provide it because l have blown the money... its killing me. I find its times like this I'm most vulnerable to gambling as I just want to get the money back but I know I can't do that now I've created so much debt already it has to end. It's the fact my kids now have to go without that makes me despise myself and Christmas is around the corner I dont know what I'm going to do... if I see one more gambling site advert I might just implode! They shouldn't be allowed to show them.

Dear @alkynat,

I am really sorry to read you and your children are finding yourselves in a desperate situation. Please do make sure that you contact your GP or your local church for a referral to a foodbank urgently, they will be able to provide you with toiletries as well as food essentials. 

I am glad you've posted here and you acknowledge that you have a gambling problem. I would recommend you start putting all available blocks into place and also that you contact us asap either on our Netline or our Freephone. Our service is available 24/7 so there is plenty of time.

Please make sure you look after yourself and your children.


Wishing you all the best,
