    Hi I am a 38 year old father of 3, I have been gambling for about 15 years and it has really affected my life and family in a really negative way, it has attributed to depression and anxiety and i turned into a recluse but have finally accepted help and am ready to do whatever it takes for it to no longer be an issue in my life.

    Welcome to the community @Jarrad g and @jax and thank you for introducing yourselves.

    Jarrad it's really great to hear that you're feeling ready to change. It takes a lot of strength and courage, but coming here and beginning your journey already shows fantastic strength. Be kind to yourself, and seek support. You might find @JinxyWolf's recent post on how seeking help is a sign of strength encouraging.

    Jax I'm sure you will be a success story - you're already on your way by joining up and posting.

    I look forward to hearing updates on your journeys! One day at a time but this really is an understanding, non-judgemental communty of people who've been where you are now, so don't hesitate to seek support.

    Take care, BrittV - comm mgr.

    Hey hey,

    I’m a 23yr old student and have been gambling for just over a year now. I’ve put myself in debt, lost thousands, and I just can’t keep in the same cycle of struggling to pay my bills and eat over such lack of control of playing. So here I am, hopefully done for once and for all.
