I signed up for Tactus and followed group therapy.  Unfortunately I was the only one who is addicted to gambling among the other members.  There was no aftercare after that.  I don't really feel helped.  Informed my family and they manage my money and I'm on budget.  Despite everything, I am still looking for ways to gamble.  What I have now discovered is paysafecard credit and with it I can gamble online.  Yesterday my sister-in-law told me that she has lost my internet banking password.  She kept an eye on expenses and income.  And yes....abused and online gambling all night.  Damage has been limited, but I feel terrible!!  I don't want to do this anymore but I can't do it alone!!!!!  I have now signed up for online help.  Go back to the doctor on Monday for a referral to a psychologist and look for a support group.  I think that people here in the Netherlands fall seriously short when it comes to getting help.  Especially for gambling addicts. 

Good luck Rachel,

How are you Rachel?

I tend to disagree. I’m so glad I live in NL, otherwise I would never have gotten the help I needed. NL and Scandinavia are in the top 5 when it comes to healthcare. For gambling addicts, this may be a bit different. My experience is that if you know what you need, and this is also clearly stated in Addiction Care, you will also be offered that help. This requires your own initiative. That will also apply to gambling addicts. Do you have some idea of ​​what you might need in terms of support?
