    Hi Mongoose, and Welcome,

    By taking the first step and joining this forum you have already proved that you have the strength to beat this addiction.

    It takes a lot of courage to admit that you need help and that your gambling is out of control. Have you reached out to a councellor? Support is very important on this journey the more the better. We are here to support you on your journey, so keep posting and we'll beat this demon together.

    Be Well
