Andy Fox Posted 2 February, 2017 Share Posted 2 February, 2017 Ok so some people asked me to share how and what kind of help I was getting.About my help: Since I live in sweden we have many social safety nets. So everyone can get help for free here.Stage 1: In the end of 2016 I contacted my Kommun(=Muncipalities) and asked for help since I just gambled everything away I spent way over 100kr per spin and just did deposit after depostit and could play away moore money in a month than most people make in a year. My money started out as a I won a medium jackpot so I had money on a account. At the end I ran out of all thoose money and played from my account aswell. And I just couldnt stop.Stage 2: I Got a phone call about to go to a meeting with a girl that worked for the kommun and we booked a meeting when and where we would meet and so I got myselg a time 2 weeks in the future.Stage 3: I'm finally at my first meeting with this guy that works with drug/alcohol abusers and he talks about a road where I am now and where I would like to be in the future. And what kind of goals I wanna acomplish after the road. This is how I said I wanted it to be:Where I am now: A total gamble addict that plays away everything and mooreWhere I wanna be: Gamble FreeGoals after the way: Play less and less and finally be free First goal was limit myself on all casinos. This person said that I dont need to quit but maybe play less wich in my world sound a bit stupid since either you quit or you keep playing. As soon as you touch casino you cant stop as a gamble addict so it was one out of many "stupid" Advices. And this kept up week after week for 3 weeks. I was working all the time night day so I had hard time making the meetings. But I could not stop playing I quit going and quit that since it did not feel right for me. and I hadent been gambling for a few weeks at this stage. One day I started Gambling again like a week ago and I was playing so much but had it under controll didnt play moore then I could afford and so on. But Last night/today I for example deposited 300 sek every time untill i played away 12000kr. I just had deadspinns the entire night but I kept depositing. And today at the morning I felt so sick with anxeity after how much I played away again So i finally got around to cancle my account without being forced to do it by my Vip managers, Hence Now my accounts are closed forever and was not exposed to a ton of bonuses and so on. I bet some casinos will be contacting me by phone very soon but im over it now. Today I have tried login into my locked accounts like 20 times just by "habbit" and to play then realise its locked while im loggin in. Wont open any new accounts since I closed on all big sited and theres no point for me to play on small sites since im addicted not stupid. So now I just have to push trough it and every time realise I can't login and think less and less of it.SIDENOTE: Was contacted last week by my kommun that asked why I quit and they where worried I hadnt got the help I needed and turns out that guy that I quit from was not "educated on gambling issues" So it explained alot and they asked if i wanted real help but I had to turn it down due to working to much. So now I am oficially on my own again. but I finally feel free. Link to comment
