ALL IN THE MIND:
GAMBLING ADDICTION AND THE BRAIN
CARDIFF BAY 20 JUNE 2018
Recovering FOBT Addict
I am 54 years of age and am a recovering FOBT addict, I am a former betting shop manager for both Ladbrokes and Corals, a fairly good sports bettor and an average poker player... sadly over the last 2 years I have lost £250,000 on FOBTs, causing me to lose my home which I once owned outright, I now have debts of nearly £100,000 also.
I have been fortunate to be put in a newydd housing flat in Barry as I was very nearly homeless after my suicide attempt in 2016, again all caused by FOBTs.
It has become my desire and passion to both educate and help anybody with any form of gambling issue, ranging from FOBTs to online gambling and dealing with all of the many implications that arise from the addiction.
I have appeared on quite a few live tv and radio shows and done a couple of local and national paper stories all in an attempt to raise awareness of how vicious a circle the gambling environment has now become.
I am on twitter @terrymistertonto and will always have time for anyone, anywhere whom needs help and support.
