Summary

The story of a young girl's entrapment in gambling addiction. The true advert for problem gambling and how it controlled her every movement, her every thought and almost took her life. How the guilt and shame that go hand-in-hand with addiction stopped her from reaching out for help for eight years as she didn't feel it was okay for a young female to be a problem gambler. How she believed it was a male dominated problem, and how eventually, she did find the tools that enabled her to become free of her addiction.

Incredibly insightful

An amazing insightful and inspirational book. The raw reality of addiction and it’s ripple effects laid bare but with the knowing that recovery truly is possible. I hope this book reaches those that need it most and this journey can continue to inspire and give hope to not just those in the grip of addiction but those riding the ripples too. Incredibly brave to revisit and share those moments but inspiring to others to know they’re never alone. Thank you for writing this.

I couldn't stop listening!

A harrowing story about a gambling addict that will hold up a mirror to those that struggle. Women gamblers at any stage of the addiction will understand Steph's need to lie to her self and others. It reveals the inevitable downward spiral that gambling addicts face. I could not stop listening, from start to finish... so many truths revealed that can/ will help other women. Grateful for such a well-written story about a female gambler, and the coping mechanisms shared that will help others get better!
