Your Question

Could you sort my gambling addiction

From Pat / 24 July 2019


Welcome to Ask Pat,

It sounds like you feel you have a gambling
addiction and you want to stop it.

As is the case with any addiction, it has the potential to do harm to the person experiencing the addiction and/or others around them. Childline would be concerned if you have a gambling addiction. You have the right to get support and to tell a trusted adult about what is going on for you.

Don’t forget, you can always contact Childline for support on 1800 66 66 66. We are here 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our text service, 50101 and webchat service, through, are where you can chat to us also. While we do not tell you what to do here at Childline, we are here to listen and support and to help you to explore the options that are available to you in your life to help you in a way that suits

I hope this has helped, thank you for sharing with us what is going on for you.

Take care.
