    Hi I’m new here I am 44 year old male and I have had a gambling addiction since I was 19, I have 5 kids 3 of them I don’t see anymore as this addiction has caused me to steal and other stuff and 2 of my kids didn’t want to know me after this I am now in a happy relationship but the online gambling has put pressure on this as well now, all the lying and spending money hiding money and stealing it has all got to much I already suffer from depression and anxiety which I am on medication for I am currently listening to a hypnosis to try help with this but would like to try talk to others with the same problem.

    Hi @Eaton29 ,
    Thank you for sharing your story. Some people find it difficult to step forward and admit you need help. So well done one that.
    I am wondering what kinds of support you have at the moment? Or what have you tried in relating to gambling?
