Stacey's story

I’m 26 turning 27 in July. I have been gambling since I got my first pay; I use to give money to my grandmother to play the pokies for me before I was legal age to play myself. My mother and grandmother are both addicted to gambling. So I learnt different ways to gamble.

I don’t go to clubs or pubs every week or month but when I do I spend big. I lost $3500 one night that’s a lot of money to just go out of your pocket. I sought help but I could figure out why is was doing these things so they stopped treating me for gambling. So I have lost quite a lot of money since this and want to try again.
