You have taken a bit step forward in dealing with your gambling, but as you are the first to admit you have not been able to stop.
Until you are able to stop you are goign to find it very very difficult to get control of your spending and debts.
Now the amounts of debt you are talking about is not that large, but they will grow all the time, unless YOU do something about it.
OK I STRONGLY suggest that you contact one of the following support staff at GamCare (http://www.gamcare.org.uk/) who provide support, information and advice to anyone suffering through a gambling problem.
The support is FREE, doesn't show on any bill, and is TOTALLY Confidential.
I appreciate that it can be very very hard to talk to people over the phone, but they also have forums, chatrooms, and more importantly a netline, where you can talk in a 'virtual' world with someone who has been through this.
If you do not want to identify yourself, that is fine, it is up to you.
BUT people who have used them, have successfully turned their lives out.
When you are in a position that you are no longer at gambling your money, then you will also be in the position to deal with all your other debts
Want to talk to someone confidentially, without obligation and free of charge?
