Hi everyone,

I am a compulsive gambler - I am at rock bottom. I am too ashamed to speak to family members about my addiction and the severity of it. I am ashamed of myself o feel so guilty when i tell my children they cant have new things because i have lost it gambling. I WANT TO CLOSE THE DOOR SCREAM.

Its a vicious cycle that i desperately want to break.

I began gambling about 3 years ago, at the time i was going through a nasty breakup and was a little depresed and i seen gambling then sas a way of getting out for few hours away from the stresses of the day - take my mind of my relationship breakup. The gambling spirralled out of control really quickly. I need help.
