Hi sydneygal and Sterling94,
Good to hear from you both and thanks for posting on the forum. It sounds like a good option would be to
contact the Gambling Helpline on 1800 858 858 to speak to a trained gambling counsellor. The Gambling Helpline provides free telephone, web-chat and face to face support and is designed for people who are having issues with gambling. The types of help are:
Financial Counselling - sitting down with a financial counsellor to go over your finances and look at debts, repayments and budgets. This can be a great way to get a handle on debt and finances, with the help of people who are very experienced with the money side of things.
Gambling Counselling - this involves working with a counsellor to address the gambling behavior and understand how to change - eg. looking at triggers and urges to gamble, as well as situations which might pose a risk for you. Often gambling counsellors can look at other areas of your life as well (eg. mental health, relationships) that might be impacting on the gambling.
I hope you find this forum useful and please let me know if you have any questions or would like additional support.
all the best,
