Andrew Margett streaming live

Recommended Posts

Andy will be streaming live tonight.....Thought it may get more exposure in a thread of its own...... @Andrew Margett

Morning guys I’ll be streaming live on YouTube tonight at 8pm BST. The way it works is it acts like a meeting of sorts, I kinda talk about how I am at first and then take questions on the live chat and hopefully you all talk and swop your social media’s so you build a network of like minded folk. Here’s a link underneath to the YouTubechannel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDXyRpLSwjGYAmbb_IQ8blg

Thanks for anyone who came on, really appreciate it. Here’s a link to the latest stream. Give me some thoughts on how I could improve etc, even though I’ve done it a lot now, don’t want to bore people to death.

@Andrew Margett Just keep doing what your doing mate, being consistent with the videos and streams helps, as you can see quite often a new person comes on chat looking for help.

Without putting any extra pressure on you, people see hope in you as you're a success story and have been free from gambling for over 10 years so if you can do it anyone can. I've linked quite a few youtube channels on here that started vlogging and talking about their gambling addictions but unfortunately the majority have either closed their channels or stopped uploading which again is said to see but also gives the impression its impossible to break the cycle!

Out of curiosity do you know of or have you spoken to James Petherick?

You speak well and have a good level of self awareness. You're doing good things and I applaud you.

@Andrew Margett I'm not ashamed to say gambling got pretty out of control for me last year. For me this forum was the fresh start I needed! I realise how strange that may sound but one member in particular helped me no end just with his words of wisdom really, the sense he made was eye opening for me. 

Anyway, it's really strange how his departure and your arrival happened so seamlessly, almost fate-esque (pretty sure that's not a word, should be though!) like it was meant to be and this forum is lucky to have you around to help members if needed.

Also props to @Rocknrolla for his approach to streaming and gambling in general, different (better) to any other in my opinion.

Pleased to say I have found my happy place with gambling, hoping for it to continue.

Only downside to this forum is how addictive it is! Talk about substituting one addiction with another!!! 😂 jokes, obviously not a downside!

@Jok3st3r

At least, you're honest with yourself.

Honesty is a huge thing, it's something that you can stand on. 

You fall down eight times and stand up nine!!

You're a brave women, you know when you fail and you know you won’t fail forever.

It's over now, smile because it happened

I think what I was trying to say before going off on a right on tangent there (Sorry bout that!) Is you're doing it all right, the only people who would be bored are those who have no interest in what you're doing. So keep up the great work 👌

Follow @epicpgc and @ygamuk on Twitter, they do a lot of educational work.

Ygam do a free workshop where you can sign up to go for the day, it’s standard gambling harm awareness stuff, but a decent insight. Get a lot of gambling industry work with both of these. I’ve done work for both from Belfast to Gibraltar.

Betknowmore another good one too they are London based like YGAM. But all 3 are nationwide with stuff they do 

 

And thank you!
