Well I fell for it

I was so obsessed with the pokies I lost a great deal of money. I decided that enough was enough and self barred myaelf from the pub across the road. It didnt stop me..I went else where.
Well I had a big decision to make..self exclude myself entirely or loose everything. Self exclusion it was and hey it worked for about 14 months. I save all my money and bought a new car!!!!!
It only took one call to the gambling authority to remove my barring from one or two venues for **** to hit the fan.
Off I went thinking ive got this..i e been so good for so long I should be okay..Hell no!!!!
After a couple of thousand dollars i was hooked and couldnt care less.
It took all my inner strength to organise a total gaming room barring order.
God..I hope I never set foot in a gaming room again..??????????????????????

Hi User 5901c96536336


Takes a lot strength to admit you need help.

You might find an Aussie document called Ka-ching Pokie Nation interesting.

Keep going.
