I need help trying to get over my addiction. I have been gambling pretty much since I was 18 years of age. It was anything and everything until I was 32. I need to stop now

Hope to get more help, exchange information from you.

Hi sydneygal and Sterling94,
Good to hear from you both and thanks for posting on the forum. It sounds like a good option would be to
contact the Gambling Helpline on 1800 858 858 to speak to a trained gambling counsellor. The Gambling Helpline provides free telephone, web-chat and face to face support and is designed for people who are having issues with gambling. The types of help are:
Financial Counselling - sitting down with a financial counsellor to go over your finances and look at debts, repayments and budgets. This can be a great way to get a handle on debt and finances, with the help of people who are very experienced with the money side of things.
Gambling Counselling - this involves working with a counsellor to address the gambling behavior and understand how to change - eg. looking at triggers and urges to gamble, as well as situations which might pose a risk for you. Often gambling counsellors can look at other areas of your life as well (eg. mental health, relationships) that might be impacting on the gambling.
I hope you find this forum useful and please let me know if you have any questions or would like additional support.
all the best,
Counsellor Sam
