Hello, first time here.

I’ve got debt coming out of my ears due to gambling.

credit cards mount up, Monzo flex is mounting up. No money to my name so struggle to pay of loans in which I tried to bet and win money with to pay everything off (didn’t work) 

id like to know what the best way of paying the debts off with one affordable payment, with signing up to Gamstop to enable me from gambling again. 

My best friend lent me £4000 and I used that to pay off all my credit cards. I’m such a bad person and friend but I did pay them off but then got loans to try and pay him back. 

I’m struggling so much I have a 6 month old boy and my partner we rent I’m fronting most of the bills.

Nobody knows I’m struggling with gambling trying to win big and pay everything off. It’s not an option for me to tell anybody.

Please help

Hi

Thank you for sharing your stress and anxiety with us.

Being honest seems to reduce our fears.

I spent many years hiding in my pains and fears and then got to go to the recovery program.

I like many people did not stop gambling from day one.

But in time I did hand over finances to my wife.

It felt very under mining yet over time got use to not having money on my person.

In time I was able to trust my self with money.

Every time I gambled I just made things much worse.

In time I got to understand that I was not a bad person but I was an emotionally vulnerable person.

I kept going back to recovery and time my life became much less stressful.

In my gambling days I felt very disconnected from people because I felt so guilty and ashamed of my very unhealthy actions.

By me going to the recovery program saved me and my family from so much pain and suffering.

Please keep sharing.

By going to meeting life can get much more healthier.
