Garth's story

Having gambled over $1 million, the only thing that has assisted me is COVID-19. Strange how something so horrible has been my lifeline. As all the pubs and clubs are now shut, for the first time ever I have money in my bank account.

I have tried counselling services numerous times, however these generally made my addiction worse, not better.

If I can hold onto my job for the next six months, I should be able to pay off all the credit card debt and get some savings in my account for the first time since I was 20.

Let's hope gaming venues stay closed a little longer, it will help gamblers and society.
