    Hi I am new to this. Addiction to fobts in the bookies. 15k debt spent 300 since Friday. I’m a dad a husband and not been to work since Friday so worried about that.
    Wife doesn’t know the extent of my debts or my problem. Got blocks on my pc as previously had online issue and excluded from bookies near my work.
    Need to exclude from others near home I think.
    Feel useless

    Hi Dave and welcome to GT.  Someone from the forum will send you some information and welcome you but I just wanted to personally say *****.  Self exclusion and any other barriers that limit access to gambling money are very important.  It’s so much easier when we CAN’T gamble instead of trying to use will power. Will power didn’t work well for me but getting rid of my debit card, stopping casino check cashing and banking at an out of town credit union have prevented getting money (or more money) to keep gambling.  Do whatever you have to do to protect yourself!
