    Lottery ticket addiction

    Fri Sep 16, 2016 5:33 pm

    Hey. I cannot stop myself from spending too much on lotteries. I don't know whether that comes under gambling addiction. I have already lost a huge sum on lottery tickets. I somehow want to get rid of this habit. A friend of mine suggested gambling addiction treatment program Edmonton ( http://www.canadadrugrehab.ca/Gambling- ... tment.html ), Is this treatment effective? Any experiences?

    Hi Polly,
    I'm Noah one of the facilitators here! Welcome to the forum. I'm not sure where you are based... either in Australia or overseas... If you do live in Australia, I can recommend some treatment options! Please feel free to PM me if you would like some counselling options within Australia!
