Grabbit while you can It's Gone, but was it any good? I won! PTR78 Forumite 2 posts. Hello, I'm currently in financial turmoil due to gambling. My partner to whom I have 3 young children to have split on bad terms. I'm currently living with my parents.

I pay the CSA for my children. I'm currently going through the family court to gain access to see my children. I'm a compulsive gambler and I have always admitted this horrible disease over the course of my adult life. I was approximately 5 years gamble free prior to this and took help through Gamcare for my addiction this:help gave me my life back.

After the breakup I went back to what I knew best. The one and only comfort that I knew that would give me the ease and escape that I needed. Bets got bigger gambles got bigger the more I lost the more the harm would ease my mental torture.

I had sold my soul to the devil. I don't know where to turn and I'm in a very bad place mentally. I feel like I have nothing I want my life back but don't know what to do. I'm hanging on with my job but it is becoming more and more stressful as to whether I can cope much longer.

I want someone to give me some advice as to how I need to deal with this. I've spoken to an online company who are advising I enter into an IVA. I'm staying strong but this mask is becoming too hard to wear. I'm completely numb as to how I'm going to dig myself out of this.

Please could someone give me advise on what I should do? I'm getting where I just want to shut down and give up but my instinct is stopping me. I've signed up to Gamstop and I'm in contact with Gamcare to help me. Oliver Forumite 40 posts. Sorry to read your situation. Unfortunately I went through the same gambling trap, doing so for over two decades. It's a horrible addiction and comes to a point where money isn't at the top of the list it robs you of - the mental impact, relationship breakdowns, time and self esteem are even worse.

Personally I went through an IVA in which I completed only having to do another one in due to my compulsive gambling which eventually failed in early There was certainly relief to get rid of that burden of debt but still took me many months to actually stop gambling. However once I stopped a light instantly appeared and I could function again, meeting things head on and my self esteem returning and relationships improving. With Bankruptcy you'll be discharged in a year but if you've surplus cash which you mention the Official Receiver will claim that over the next 3 years to repay your debt.

Thanks for your reply and advice. The company is in the process now of dealing with my debt. Obviously he wants to take on my case. To be fair I'm happy with the payments and is confident I will be accepted however I'm not too sure as like you said they want the business.

Just want it to be over, I'm never going to be able to have full control over my finances. I'm a hopeless waster that destroys it all when given any opportunity. I will speak to citizens advice first as I've read that in a bankruptcy like mine I would be given a IPA which will usually be over a 3 year term. Which is obviously a quicker solution. One more thing to mention most of the debt was in the space of a 2 week binge and I have yet to default on these debts as of yet?

Would this bear any issue with my situation. Gamcare and Gamstop have been notified the later for the maximum term. Flyright Forumite posts. In bankruptcy you may well receive a BRO given the circumstances of the debt accruing. It would be about protecting you from your own future actions as much as it would be about protecting future creditors. My vast debt was accrued through my gambling - my bank statements were absolutely rife with them and no hiding the fact.

Even though this was the case no special things were put in place other than just an IPA after the bankruptcy went through as I had surplus cash another story! Are you sure you can't pay this debt back and avoid going into an agreement of some sort? Give up the gambling and going forward is a far clear path and achievable. Wow - give up gambling? What a wonderful idea! I'm sure the poster hasn't thought of that! I'm sure your intentions are good, but clearly you've never suffered from an addiction.

I speak from experience, and it is a whole lot more difficult than just deciding to stop. The reasons why someone gambles need to be addressed. Generally, and in my own instance, gambling is an escape. The underlying issues need to be looked at. The opposite to addiction is connection - if you have a connection to the real world, the desire to gamble is removed.

A huge thing is to talk to those closest to you. Part of what kept me trapped in the gambling cycle was the idea that I couldn't tell anyone - that they wouldn't understand.

When it finally came out, I was lucky that those I cared most about were more understanding that I ever could have expected. Good luck! Sign In or Register to comment.
