Phineas's story

I never believed I would be an addict, it all started when I was in high school. I could gamble my fees along with my pocket money. I am now 21 and I am still struggling to get out of this hole. In five years I have gambled approximately $1 million KSh.

I always feel a sense of shame when I wake up but due to peer pressure I cannot step away. I know this will be the misery that knows no end on my part.

I have tried rehabilitation and it was ok at first, it worked but on campus I still continued gambling. It’s a problem I know with no end, I now have a credit card debt of $60,000 KSh, which I think will cause me a lot of trouble. I still don’t know the way out.
