There is a lot of help available for people who are tired of the gambling loop they are in. Online gambling is so easy to access and people often bet more and more, even when they are telling themselves not to. They can feel as if they are struggling alone, continually pulled back into the loop.
If you are working at this alone there are online supports that can help and probably local support as well.
Anywhere in British Columbia you can access Gambling Support BC to get free, confidential, one on one help for your gambling issues.
