Tim shares his journey from underage gambling in the TAB on the horses, trots or dogs, anything that would produce a quick result. He became a compulsive liar to hide his gambling and was eventually gambling alone, with his fortnightly pay packet gone within a few hours of receiving it.
Tim tried getting help just to please others but that didn’t work for him. Tim found Gamblers Anonymous but thought that he was better than them and went on to relapse again for 18 months. Now he’s clean and has been back in GA for 60 days and wants to stay away from gambling for good. Tim talks about recovery in Gamblers Anonymous and how important it is to be honest in his close relationships.
If you’re having trouble with gambling, or have a friend or family member that does, then maybe Gamblers Anonymous could help – phone (03) 9696 6108 or visit their website gaaustralia.org.au for information and to see a list of local meetings.
