hi not to sure where to start mark im 26 and I have a gambling addiction

I came back from backpacking a year ago today with some debt. I started playing online poker to help clear this debt, then I made a big mistake and started playing online slot machines and I cant seem to stop. im thousands in debt I guess I keep playing hoping for that big win that will help me out. I won a fair amount once but in a day I had put it all back in. that's about 5 months wages for me. im so angry at myself things have just gotten out of control. I just took out a overdraft and blown it in minutes. no one really knows about this addiction apart from one close friend and he doesn't understand why I keep gambling. my dad has been making hints he wants me to move out soon and would kill me if he knew how much debt I was in.
