I'm not really one for spilling my guts to a counsellor but they do have some free financial counsellors in the gambling help services and i went to one of them. I like them because they don't just go on about your emotions, they get your financial stuff under control and give you a good path back into the black. I mean, it's a long way off for me but now I know how to get there and it seems possible, while before it was impossible. i just felt like i was stuck in a jungle with no way out and then i saw some light for the first time in years.

Hey biggest loser, I really want to try and get some help, especially financial help. Everyday is an absolute internal struggle. I work but all my pay goes in them machines. I am hiding it from my husband. I'm broke by the time my next pay check comes in. I want to get help. How long did it take you to sort your finances out? I did self exclude this week but I'm telling you today was close. I got the urge you know? I'm ready to quit and I want to stop living a lie.

Hi Somerset, Congratulations on self excluding and being ready to quit. There are counsellors available through Gambling Help to assist you with gambling and they may be able to refer you to a suitable financial counsellor as well. You have taken the first step forward and with counselling, you can obtain the support needed in moving forward.
