    I’m 30 years old and live in South of England. I have lost over 200k and at my worst 40k in 3 months. I struggle to come to terms with those numbers still now, but I am a gambling addict. I started this chat as I have been in a group of 5 friends who 4 of us, are or were gambling addicts. To the point where losing £500 a night was seen or talked up as “not a bad night”. My life revolved around gambling. I came home with a wallet full of cash, or I stumbled home with nothing and took my anger out on those around me, not physically but emotionally. At my lowest - I gambled the money I had for my sons birthday presents, I stole £50 from my mums purse to gamble, I’ve gambled £9,000 in 45 mins leaving not a penny in my bank. Each time I didn’t feel sad. I didn’t even feel guilty. I felt numb. I scratched the itch I had. I was addicted to losing as much as winning. I battled my demons for years though. I told those closest to me to try and help. My parents my friends my partner. Ultimately I battled this addiction and myself without ever listening or doing what was needed. Tomorrow was always a new day and a chance to win back my money. If you want to give up or are struggling to give up, I know what you’re going through. I battled for years. I tried bits and bobs without ever finding the solution. I also know this is what you absolutely HAVE to do, in order to get better: 1) hand over all sources of money and income to someone you trust and cares for you. Including online banking. Leave no loopholes. We are gamblers we are addicts. 2) ban yourself from everywhere you was gambling, which is now easier than it used to be. GamStop is a must, local bookies is a must. 3) the hardest and most pivotal part - and the one I avoided for years. Attend support groups. I never attended for years because I was too proud. In reality what they do, is prove that you are not alone. You can do this and you do have people that understand you. If anyone wants to chat I know it’s a bad place you’re in. But do not give up. I promise there is a light.

    71 days for me. I'm almost starting to lose count. Had a dream the other night about playing roulette. I won lol. Woke up massively relieved. Phew. I still maintain i will do the £10 poker. 6 visits in 10 weeks with profit of £195 so I'm 99.9% sure going on a Saturday night will not tilt me into doing anything else.

    After personally naming @Roger_aka_Roger's team...only waiting on the team name of @Douvan and @Markymark. anyhoo, these will be the official Rules GAME RULES..... DAY 1. WEDNESDAY - 100 points between you.... 4 selections DAY 2. THURSDAY - 100 points per player .... Best 2 selections from each player count. Max 4, Min 2 selections per player. DAY 3. FRIDAY - 100 points per player .... all selections count. Max 4 per player, minimum 2. All selections to be made in multiples of 10. Races at York only. On THURSDAY and FRIDAY team mates CANNOT duplicate selections, but you CAN have different horses in the same race. The Strategy you wish to employ is all yours. It is a case of trial and error and see how things work for the shorter 2/3 day festivals in the future. If one team player is a no show on Thursday and Friday I will allow a sub, else you will only be able to score half the available points I guess.

    I've always said they are the absolute scum of the gambling community! And some of the shit that they promote baffles me . Curacao licence! They obviously don't give a fuck about their sign ups or any kind of player protection.

    You’re loyal to Fruity Slots Ben, I’ve seen you when I occasionally pop into the chat. And being loyal you’ll probably know Jamie and Josh better than anyone that’s jumping on this bandwagon, and as a result will defend them to the hilt. But sometimes loyalty can be blind - can you even see how serious this is? Content like this doesn’t just appear on your own web page - you write it. And even if you’ve paid someone to write it for you, you would make sure they had an adequate understanding of the gambling industry and had a grasp of the basic dos and dont’s. You’re a pretty level headed guy. Surely this pushes even your loyalty to Fruity Slots too far?
