Lets give life a chance and take baby steps to get our lives back and be happy again. Time will tell what will happen. You may find the support groups a big help over the weekend. What barriers can you put in place?
Good morning Sookie, Well done.
I guess the more difficult test is when we get past paychecks without gambling a single penny. Basically I told the betting shops about my situation and asked them to permanently remove me from all online gambling in the UK.
I used to be someone who was fit and healthy, gym 5 time's a week, eating well etc but now I don't exercise and eat whatever is cheapest out the shop because all my money is spent paying back debts or gambled away. Howcome the focus doesn't kick in until after losing? I'm here because I need help and I would like to help others.

Maybe she could keep hold of your bank card for a few weeks.
Almost like a weight being lifted off of my shoulders. Yesterday I lost the last of my wages to the fobt's in the bookies, I'm devastated. Not sure if that gd casino login helpful. The only advice I can give, if you gamble online, is to self exclude yourself permanently.
But I have some good news. I get paid, pay my bills, my debts etc then throw the rest of the money away in the bookies.
