Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the Forum’s new topic! 

This week’s topic is “courage”.

Reaching out for support and talking about gambling harms takes a lot of courage. So does taking every step of the recovery journey. Sometimes we may not feel that we have the courage to take the next step, so it can be helpful to reflect on times we have felt this way before and how we overcame it.

From your own experience….

How do you find the courage?

When have you had to be courageous before? What happened?

If you were feeling courageous in your recovery, would anything be different?

We would love to hear your reflections below!


If you have any ideas of topics you would like to see on the Forum, please let us know below.

*Want to chat more? We run chatrooms every week and would love to see you there! Check the chatroom times here:  https://community.gamcare.org.uk/chatrooms/*


All the best,


Online Peer Support Team

I think anyone stopping  gambling  is courage.

I think courage is blocking  unwanted gambling  ads. I got a call from a blocked casino. I told them to   go away not nicely lol.they said we added this and that to your already self excluded account?

I told them to   go away and blocked there  number. It made me feel as if I'm healing and the penny  has dropped  with  me.

My next courage is chatrooms
