Jake's story

Hey everyone, first time posting on here. I've always had a gamble since I was 18 but within the last 12 months, I've lost complete control and have found myself in debt and have blown all my pay within four days of getting paid. I’ve made promises to family and friends and have found myself letting them down again.

I can’t believe I’m in this situation again but when I’m gambling, I’m not thinking of anyone or anything but the next win. There are plenty of times I should have left but then I lose $20 which turns into thousands. I feel very hopeless at the moment but I have to stay positive otherwise I would give up.

Anyway that’s where I’m at and I have a long road ahead of me.
