    never used to do it, but just got to me real quick after covid out of pure boredom and the feeling of winning.

    Hi @Annon123355,

    Welcome to the forums! I'm really glad you've joined. You've come to the right place to find support. :);

    I'm really sorry to hear about the loss, and how you got involved after Covid. I recommend you have a look at our Making a Change section.

    Have you thought of other activities you could do instead of gambling?

    Congratulations on your Day 1! :cool:
