    I have serious pokie addiction which the threat of losing my family allowed me to take hold and stop.The proviso was that all forms of gambling were to cease however I thought it was alright to buy lottery tickets ,play powerball and oz lotto.How wrong I was to naively think in my head that this was not a form of gambling, well turns out deceiving a big part of addition, creeps back and all turns to crap!

    Hi @Bigdill

    Well done on reaching out on these forums for some support.
    Yes you are right, lottery tickets is still a form of gambling, as is keno scratchies etc.
    Has things escalated for you?

    Take care,
