First time posting 22 years old. Worked for 4 years in bookies and got hitched on gambling then, when I was 18 I was spending my £800 pay checks and when I got older and got bills I would pay my bills and gamble the leftovers. Gambling got out of hand this year, when I resorted to borrowing a few large sums of money, £10,000 in total. It has hurt my family members I have lied constantly trying to cover up and I'm just a bit sick of it all. You think you have it under control but you can never win. Trying to take control now and move forward with my life, as it's ruining my families life too.
