On today’s show we are talking all things addiction. My guest is co-host of the ‘All Bets Are Off’ podcast. A show designed for those in or contemplating recovery from gambling addiction. The show launched in April this year and my guest, along with his fellow co-hosts, have shared their experiences and journeys to date.
My guest placed his last bet on 29th October 2017 when he was 35 years old. You’d be surprised to hear that he didn’t even gamble until he was 30. It was another beast he fought years, alcoholism. He says that gambling provided a new platform to escape from his emotions.
From having a bet for fun at the age of 30 to seriously contemplating suicide at 35. Debt became crippling and he didn’t like who he’d become.
We took a deeper dive and heard more about the frightening and tragic world of addiction as I had the pleasure to share a conversation with Chris Gilham
