Hi Becky,

Your final question contains the answer.

YES, you should go to a meeting. You are in Sheffield at the moment, there is a meeting on Sunday evening 1930 hours at Croft House Settlement on Garden Street. Its not far from the West Bar police station and easy walking from the city centre. There is also one on a Friday morning 1000 to 12 noon, Room 50, Victoria Methodist Church, Victoria Hall, Chapel Walk. Both have maps online - click on the meetings tab, then go down to Sheffield then click on the blue "click for map" writing.

Make a commitment to your future and attend. There are also meetings on an evening across Yorkshire, all accessible by public transport - if you have your own wheels its well worth getting to a meeting further afield if you need to. After all, whats a tank of fuel compared to a spot of gambling? As you have found gambling is now more than a bit of harmless fun (as Teresa Jowell, the then Culture Secretary, once famously described it whilst leaning over a roulette table).
Please note Gamblers Anonymous is not affiliated to any demonimation, politics or institution, does not endorse nor oppose any causes, our primary purpose is to stop our gambling and to help other compulsive gamblers do the same.
It is taking over your whole life. It is affecting personal relationships, stealing time from your studies, probably keeping you from going "home" due to awkward questions to answer and time/money to go.

There is no substitute for meetings.

Get yourself along. You will meet people who have been where you are right now and they are getting their lives back.

The road to recovery starts with a single step.

Kind regards.
