      Hi everyone 🙂

      I’m Pete and I’m new here. I’m looking forward to posting my full story but it is one hell of a tale. Basically though I’ve been a gambling addict for over 30 years and started playing slots when I was just 12 years old. The addiction has ruined what should have been the best years of my life and started as a result of witnessing really bad domestic violence. 

      However, it’s been close to a year since I last played online and I’ve since quit land based casinos too. I’m in a large amount of debt but slowly picking up the pieces. 

      I’ve been off work for over 4 months due to PTSD and my gambling back story has formed a significant part of my therapy. 

      I’m quite proud of that since up until a month ago I knew nothing of building websites! Anyway, I’ll stick around here and hopefully I can be of use to others too. 🙂

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

      Pete unfortunately the posting of links is against the terms and conditions of the website, unfortunately in the past similar threads and links have been posted and once checked they have been edited and linked to a gambling site. Im sure this wouldn’t happen but we have to protect our community. I look forward to you actively using our site
