Hi and welcome to my Blog!
I’m what you might call a ‘normal’, married, thirty something with a lovely four year old living in the South East of England, however, as well as that I am a compulsive gambler who has not long been in recovery.
There’s not much out there for women struggling with an addiction like this and certainly there seems to be a feeling and an assumption that betting is something with which men lose control.
I am aware that there are significantly less women attending GA and through the forums, chat rooms and articles I have read I know there are more and more women suffering with this addiction.
I thought I would write about my experiences and how life is sometimes affected by gambling as well as hopefully shine a bit of a light on just how much gambling permeates the lives of women today.
Primarily this blog exists so I can get my thoughts down to aid my recovery but I hope it helps others relate to this serious issue and brings some of the impacts, even the little ones others don’t notice, to the forefront of some people’s thinking.
A little more about me:
Favourite Hobby: Running
Favourite Pastime: Reading

So I think that’s it for an introduction!
