I’m 35 and always gamble on pay day. Tonight though was a wake up call. I won over 1000 pounds and was happy with that. Plans to buy things. Go do things. Then it went south. I’ve been sitting here alone with nothing to do so went back online. Well we can guess where this is going…. yes I lost it all and more. There goes the plans to buy things.
It’s made me feel really low and I hate myself for doing sonething so stupid.
I hope thes forums can help me not to gamble.
Thanks for reading.

Hello and thanks for starting a thread in the Gambling Therapy forums. By posting to the forums you’re allowing the diverse and caring Gambling Therapy community to help support you through the difficulties you’re facing.
This may well be a tough time for you – particularly if you’re new to recovery, so we encourage you to post here as often as you need to, as well as making use of the online groups and the live advice helpline if you’d like some one-to-one support. We’re all in this together! If you’re a new member, you are warmly invited to join Charles in one of the New Members Practical Advice groups (Mondays at 21:00 UK Time and Thursdays at 19:00 UK Time).
The forum is a great place to share your experiences in a safe, supportive and accepting environment. By writing it all down you can start to build a record of your progress that you can look back on – particularly useful if you’re ever feeling stuck. Share as much or as little as you like – but you’re encouraged to stick to keeping to just one thread in this forum – so people know where to find you to check in on your progress or to share something with you.
The Gambling Therapy staff team don’t generally post to the forums as it is a peer support area of the site – so we’ll hand you over to the community from here.
