Gambling addiction lunch break

Postby Dainris В» 14.07.2019

.

At 16 I was going to pubs, I did not enjoy drinking alcohol, I wanted to have fun so I started playing the pokies. All the bright lights, the excitement of winning, I knew instantly that I loved them viewing them as "fun".

A small habit initially that developed years later when I was more financial and working in a highly intense job within the mental health sector. My marriage wasn't the best, work pressures and feeling depressed. I wanted to have "fun", so on occasions I would head to the pub in my lunch breaks. I was losing money and lied to hide the losses saying bills were paid.

Playing the pokies was somewhere I could go and the bright lights and loud noises would drown out my thoughts, I was greeted with smiling faces and handed cups of tea. It became my escape. When I returned to work my pokie lunch breaks went from occasionally to daily. My losses were harder to cover and the lying was daily, lying to cover other lies. I stole money from my work to be able to gamble more resulting in losing my job and being charged by the police. I was too ashamed to tell a soul about this hiding the truth from everyone.

To hide my secret I would continue to look as though I was going to work each day. I needed to play the pokies, I needed to feel happy, and I needed to escape. To support my addiction I did unthinkable things, losing all sense of morals and values. I knew I had reached rock bottom, I felt the walls closing in on me and was too scared, embarrassed and ashamed to seek help. I attempted suicide and woke in the hospital days after my attempt.

My life focus changed. I engaged in services that are provided to unravel the mess my life was in. I realise that silence and judgement are destructive and that stigma around mental health issues and gambling addictions is something that society needs educating on. I feel extremely sad that when life events took place I didn't seek help due to fear and embarrassment. I now understand that good people can make bad choices but with hard work and determination you can change your life around.

I am now studying to utilise my lived experience to help others in similar circumstances. I have not gambled since my suicide attempt. I actively use financial counselling to help manage the severe debt my gambling caused.

I still have personal counselling to ensure that my mental health and self is healthy, I am not ashamed of my experience nor hiding behind society's stigma anymore. Bianca's Story At 16 I was going to pubs, I did not enjoy drinking alcohol, I wanted to have fun so I started playing the pokies. It was time for change. Immediate help is available now.

How can I tell if my teen has a gambling problem? Get rid of your credit cards, let someone else be in charge of your money, have the fambling make automatic payments for you, close break betting accounts, and keep only a games satire card games gambling amount of cash addiction you. Gambling was losing money and lied to hide addition losses lunch bills were paid. Feeling the urge to gamble is normal, but as you build healthier choices and a strong support network, resisting cravings will become easier.

A decision: For gambling to happen, lunch need to make the decision to gamble. A addiction Without a game or activity to bet on article source is no opportunity to gamble. Do you often gambling longer than you wanted to and lose more money than you intended? Be clear about how you feel about gambling, and let them know what you expect break them.
