Chris from the UK, recovering alcoholic and compulsive gambler, Co-Host of All Bets Are Off Podcast and Trustee at Gambling Education Network is back with the second part of our discussion where he talks about his activities in recovery. He shares the journey about how he got into the podcasting field, how it allowed him to express himself and help others, and what are their plans for the future. He mentions other podcasts addressing gambling harm and talks about the Do It For Her movie that the Gambling Education Network commissioned.
We openly talk about details of gambling addiction, the various depth of it, and involved parties who suffer from its harm. His humble personality shines through in words, we can connect to his narrative and understand what helps him to be sober and bet-free these days through the various recovery activities where he’s involved.
His stories might resonate with many of us struggling with alcohol, gambling and mental health, looking for support, or feeling lost with all details of our own problems. You can follow him on Twitter @gillsy1002_, listen to the Gambling Addiction Recovery Podcast called All Bets Are Off where he’s a Co-Host and the leading impact-focused UK charity Gambling Education Network dedicated to the prevention and reduction of gambling harm.
