Rhys's story

It probably started late last year when I lost my job and was looking for extra money so I went to my bank app clicked on $20,000 loan and it was in my bank account the next day.

So when everyone was at work, I would sit in front of the television all day. When a few weeks went by, I was down to my last couple of hundred.

But wait I still didn't learn; I got a job and once my pay went in I would go on my app and start doing it all again and again. I would blow my whole pay check. I feel so empty inside every week.

So many of my friends and family have tried to help me but you can only help yourself first before anyone can help you.

What I've found out in the last year is that gambling addiction is the worst addiction going around. I want to stop feeling so down most weeks and be happy again.
