Day 784. The most noticeable factor now is self-respect. When I was on the verge of suicide I’d look around and think every single person was better than me, in every way. When you like yourself it’s a different world
Just because a gambling addiction is the commonality. It doesn’t mean you’ve walked the same path. Some people may feel more exploited than others. Be nice, be kind. Recovery has different stages 💪
Does an operator use the same security measures when a self-excluded casino player re-joins AS a banned sports bettor? That’s the question @gondorffhenry @GamRegGB
If I knew a person was going to self-harm but I made money from selling the tools to do it, I’d be frowned upon by society. Gambling operators do exactly this and are glamorised! 🤷♂️
10 years ago.
ANALYSTS “we can either a) keep gambling an entrainment business and make small revenues but over longer, be sustainable and responsible or b) cannibalise the whole sector, exploit addicts, and make a shit load of money”
CEO “F**k it... let’s go b. Who’s to blame?
Day 700 today. Never think I’ll gamble again but I still get so annoyed on how companies treated me back then. That’s what is holding me back. How they can justify exploiting a self-excluded, self -confessed addict and taking so much money..... beyond me 🤷♂️
Great to read so many positive recovery stories on here. Many people getting strength from others. Fighting on as a team! 💪
A weird milestone for me. Day 666. All the numbers on a roulette wheel add up to 666 and that was my nemesis...... or should I say it was!!!
Online gambling is a new breed of addiction. No other vice has changed as much in the past 10 years so It’s pointless comparing it to other addictions. @mimsdavies @carolynharris24
Day 642. Happy the new ID verification rules come into force today. So simple! Would have saved me so much pain and money. My letters to @GamRegGB may have been read after all!
I’ve never been a process person. I’d like to do things ad-hoc. But all those in recovery please trust the process, whatever course you chose, stick to it. Most gamblers are impatient by nature. See it through 👊
Casino products are designed to be addictive, the lights, the noises, the spinning wheels.... all designed to hypnotise customers to think irrationally and keep spending money. My issue is the amount of money they extract when addicts are under the influence. @GamRegGB
