    I am 40 and have been gambling for over 25 years. I have got to the point when I’m in the middle of a gambling binge when even if I’m winning, I can’t stop.
    I won £2,500 once and within the fortnight I had lost the lot and more recently I have won the jackpot on fruit machines only to put it straight back in.
    So why do I gamble if it’s not about winning? I’m guessing it’s my way of coping and escaping from my problems? We all have coping strategies and I’ve got one that makes me thoroughly depressed and broke.
    I can’t wait to be rid of this addiction and look forward to doing the things I enjoy in life more often.
