Stunning story man. I think you are within the category of people where gambling just changed the brain. Getting away from it is so frigging hard. But there's hope. Try to search for detox in africa or some shit. I've heard several people went through there with all sorts of addictions. They seemed to come back reborn. Understand that the nature of these stupid games is extremely addicting. And it does'nt take a gambling addict to become addicted, you know?

Changing the brain I like it mate. It must be that, I’m intelligent-ish, have a good job and get to travel the world. There is just something about the rush of gambling that cannot be beaten.

To hide this to those that I don’t want to share it with I always say my sky dive in New Zealand was better than an orgasm which it is but nothing better than hitting the big top on a slot

Oh and my friend has used that story in a stand up routine, that and the one of me nearly shiting myself in the Outback

Winning big and then just frittering it away instead of cashing-out two times in row. Shame on me!

Owning up is a good thing. I think I would get in touch with Bryan and ask if you can continue here in quit gambling if you want.

You've made a lot of progress. Maybe it does not feel that way, but you have.

Don't even know where to begin!

Started out playing the 5p Fruit Machines in the 90s. This included several steals of money from my mum n dad. God, they had me at GA at 16! It helped for a while til I discovered online gambling. Things hit the fan big-time over a lot of time. Some months I would win serious money tens of thousands at times but others I would be left with literally nothing to survive another 4 weeks to get paid again. Calmed down a lot but winning 35 grand on Slotsmillion year before last was the catalyst for epic failures. Huge bank debts and have a court decree against me now for an amount several times that win. Had gone on Gamstop, opened several accounts using slightly wrong details and continued to lose. Finally end of last year I completely quit. Opened accounts everywhere and excluded myself over and over everywhere. Now in a much better place and helping out with the UKGC and Gamstop for the past 4 months with some compliance issues! Still to document these on here but cases are ongoing at the moment so watch this space. Online gambling really did take me to the brink but have the control and knowledge now not to do it. Play for fun now only.

For years i had only played Live Casino blackjack after finding it impossible to win on the electronic version.One evening,a few months ago,the live table was so slow that i was just getting totally bored but instead of finding another table i switched to the electronic game.Biggest mistake of my life.I lost and lost then started chasing those losses and was making bets of £500 a hand.At £11000 down the casino actually phoned me to check if i was aware of the amount i was down and i told them that i was about to stop.Of course i didn't and blew another £5k.
It was money i could afford to lose and didn't affect my life but looking back,i have no idea what possessed me that night.Needless to say electronic blackjack is now strictly off the agenda.

I know this is far from the same as what some people have done but I'm always ashamed of myself when I'm able to build up a decent bankroll over a few weeks or months just to blow it all in a few days time when I'm having a really bad streak that sends me to tiltsville.

Luckily we're only talking about profit here and not the rent money or whatever but still... it's stupid.
