    Hi @Steadly,

    First of all, welcome to the forums! I want to acknowledge the strength and courage it takes to to seek support, and I'm really glad you've reached out to the forums. The step you've taken today is a wonderful start to reach your goals.

    I'm really sorry to hear what's going on for you. It doesn't sound crazy at all, and you're not alone. You'll find here more people that have gone through the same experience (have a look at the Success Stories).

    Do you have any supports in place or do you have a plan for quitting? Have you thought about taking the 100 Day Challenge?

    I recommend you have a look at the Understanding gambling, Making a change and Take a step forward sections.

    If you would like to speak to a counsellor, you can call our counsellors 24/7 for free on 1800 858 858 or you can also speak to a counsellor through our web chat.

    Please reach out at anytime. We're here for you.

    Hi lovely cat lady yes I'm a strong person , but the gamble addition still can take over my life and I hate myself to be that person, since I take the 100 day challenges I learn to be kinds to myself let go the pass, concentrate the future ahead of me instead.

    How are you going with it all?

    I’m still in a little denial so my point of being here is to show myself this is serious and to remind myself that I am not alone going through it so I can no longer feel embarrassed by it x
