Tim’s dad was a compulsive gambler and he started early to follow in his dad’s footsteps. Gambling on anything that ran, he avoided the pokies as they held no interest for him. Joining the Army didn’t stop his gambling and gave him a steady income to continue it unabated. Tim tried Gamblers Anonymous in 1986, stopping gambling for brief periods and then returned again in 1996. It wasn’t until he got involved in helping others in GA and did the Steps that his life finally turned around.
