Hello and Welcome

Hey guys, welcome to the website.

During my twenties I suffered from a crippling gambling addiction. It led to a myriad of problems; financial debt, relationship breakups and terrible mental health. For over 10 years I constantly lied to my friends and family, hiding my addiction in plain sight.

Earlier this year my local community lost a young man due to gambling related suicide. It had a devastating impact and, in his memory, it spurred me to release a podcast about my gambling addiction story. It was a nerve-wracking experience, but received lots of support and encouragement from friends, family and strangers across the world.

From there - and with the help of my brother - I started The Invisible Addiction podcast and vlog series to raise awareness of problem gambling and to highlight the effects of addiction to younger people.

The aim is to help people going through a similar experience and potentially help save lives.

Wishing you well, and thanks for reading.

Alex :)
