Real storiesSee full listing of stories
I have been gambling since I was 21 and in just 2 years I have lost almost all of the savings my parents gave to me.
I was the kind of person who used to tell others not to gamble. I never borrowed money from someone, never got into debt, paid bills on the day of receiving it. But that was until I started gambling.
I have blown my superannuation on pokies and now am working when I should be retired.
