Gamstop again!

Hi, After having 6 months off from October to April I was quite excited about playing slots again and thought I had control again until as usual it started getting out of hand! I had some good ish wins but end up putting them back on due to the trap that is you can reverse withdrawals! After spending more than I can afford in one month trying to win back what I had lost I’ve signed up to Gamstop again! I urge anyone to sign up to this who is struggling, it’s strange as I don’t even miss it for the 6 months and feel happy knowing I can’t lose my money and have that horrible urge that you can’t stop! Some sites won’t let you back on again after Gamstop but that’s not a bad thing!

Take the plunge and sign up for the max, which i think is 5 years. The 'excited' part is the problem. Take sometime and heal yourself

Hello

I signed up to GAMSTOP for 5 years and can honestly say it's one of the best decisions I've ever made. If I could sign up for life I would as it's completely removed the temptation for me.

I wish you well.

Si
