Hi All please support me to fight my sports betting addict for 25 years….
Just to re-cap. All my hard earn money are gone, I now own family : 25K and 30K on personal loan and credit.
Today, I decide to fight my gambling cancer and work hard to payback all the money I am owning. I got a wife and a kid . I married for 3 years and my wife didn’t know that I am an addict. Please support me and share your experience. I will update my thread weekly.

Hello and thanks for starting a thread in the Gambling Therapy forums

We’re in this together!
Here on the forum you can share your experiences in a safe, supportive and accepting environment. The beauty of writing it all down is that you can take your time and you will be creating a record of your progress that you can look back on if it ever feels like you’re not moving forward. So, share as much or as little as you like but do try to stick to keeping just one thread in this forum so people know where to find you if they want to be updated on your progress or share something with you.
As well as the forums New Members are invited to join Charles in the New Members Practical Advice Group On Mondays at 21:00 (UK) and Thursday at 19:00(UK)
And on that note….

Hi dphantracy – welcome to the forum and well done on taking a positive step in admitting the issue, and starting a thread.
Being broke and building up debt from gambling is something most on here myself included can relate to. The better news is that if you can remain gamble free, and have a good structure in place, it is possible to turn things around.
As Charles mentioned, there are new member’s advice groups on Mondays and Thursdays. I would really recommend checking one of these out. There Charles gives some great advice and the next step that can be taken. The groups also tend to be on the smaller side, and so Charles can listen to your specific situation and provide more personal advice.
