    Yes as venues open back up slowly it can be quite a challenging time for many people. This is why its important for everyone to have some sort of safety plan for themselves so they don't fall back into that gambling trap. Even though the temptation could get stronger, we have to remember that we all have the power of what choices we make.

    I am hoping that people who have had problems with gambling and have been forced to stay away during Covid,will continue to stay away .i am quite sure it has been hard on many many people but it has also saved them ..I too hope they have a plan in place if they go back to gambling

    I have fallen off the wagon again having work cut hours needing to find extra cash to get by went back to my destructive ways somehow worked for first month to get by but I have realised mid gambling after not losing any money that this time back I'm not going to gain anything from it so just closed accounts down I'd prefer to be broke than gamble away what little I may have

    Hi @Sjhbailey sorry to hear work has cut your hours. I understand that can be quite stressful!
    I'm glad to hear that you were able to stop yourself and not give in to the false hope of gaining money from gambling.
