Thank you for seeking help, you are very brave and Ii think that is a very important first step. I remembered when I reached out for help, such as going to see a counsellor, psychologist/psychiatrist and even attending the Gambling Treatment Clinic was tremendous help.

You can contact me by email: silvialining at gmail dot com

my email is also on the right hand side of my blog. look forward to hearing from you :)
