Hello everyone, my name is Nurzhan, I am writing from Kazakhstan (sorry for my english) . I’m 24 and I’m a bettor.
I have been betting for over 10 years, I just can’t quit this business, the fact is that only last year I realized that betting is bad, but I still can’t quit.
And so my main problem is that, as the salary comes in, I immediately start betting, the money worked in a month, I screw it up in 1-2 days.
I used to borrow from friends, because of this I took out loans, loans, to this day I pay off. Now I don’t play in debt, only my own.
I recently put my phone in a pawnshop, so I was left without it(((
if there is no money, then I do not bet, as they appear, I immediately start to bet.

Welcome to the forum and well done on taking a positive step towards being gamble free.
It sounds like at the moment, you like a lot of compulsive gamblers myself included cannot currently trust yourself with any money that you have access to. To help with this issue, a first step could be asking someone you trust to manage your money for now. You would still control your money and get to decide what it is spent on, but that spend would always go through your trusted friend.
I would also recommend attending the New Members Practical Advice Group On Mondays at 21:00 (UK) and Thursday at 19:00(UK). You can get some really great advice there that may be a big help.
