Max shares his story of developing a gambling habit through watching his grandfather gambling as a child and from the acceptance of gambling behaviour by the parents of his peers at high school. Max ended up gambling online, stealing money from his mum’s bank account, borrowing from friends, and hiding his compulsive behaviour from his partner.
The podcast provides an insight into the progression of his gambling addiction and his initial contact with and his early recovery through Gamblers Anonymous. Max also shares about the effect of his early under-age gambling.
