I am in trouble as I can not afford to do the things I need to do in the next few months and I have no oncome for 8 weeks due to personal reaaons .I don't know what to do . Came here to see if it would help .

Hi shadow87

Im sorry to hear about your situation.

My recomendations

- your salary should go into a family members bank account who you trust to look after your money

- if not possible sign up to monzo bank and instruct them not to let you deposit to gambling sights and they can block these transactions

- speak to step change who is a charity who can help with debt advise.

- can you borrow money from friends/family to pay for what you need...its best they pay directly to whoever the money is required for to avoid your temptation to gamble.

- speak to gamcare over the phone /live chat and they can recommend free councilling in your area

-use gamstop to ban you signing up to gambling sites for up to 5yrs.

- you said you have a good job so money can be made back. I lost everything a few yrs ago and 18months later i was surprised how quickly i was able to save my money. 

-keep your mind busy- do a hobby you enjoy and spend time with your family. 

- stay strong, we are all here because of our addiction and you can get over this.

So what do you NOT do is the big question?




do that and this will never happen again, big road ahead if you want to take it, do you?

Ok so I went a few days clean and I went back for more . I really think you need to hit rock bottom to realise what an idiot you are . I am done I finally registered gamstop 5 years .7 days free I'm excited for the future knowing the money I will save by staying away from this evil addiction. When I feel like a little urge or down I come here to read other people's stories I really find it helps . 

I know it's going to be very hard already I seen advertisements everywhere which doesn't help me but I believe I have the power to do this .
