I am one of five children with both parents alive who all have gambling addiction. We all acknowledge it but I am sick of the pokies having control over my leisure time. I have gone 3 months without pokies but once I go back I'm hooked. For Me stress and anxiety play a huge part in my wanting to escape but I don't want to have my life that way anymore. The am i have spent has increase the last 6 months and frightened me. I want to stop. My dad's family also has alcoholism issue's but I don't have that addiction. It's very normal in my family to go out gambling and my siblings and I have discussed feeling awful after wasting money.
