Keeping Problem Gambling in the Past

About this event

Hosted by Tony O'Reilly this free online talk offers information and advice on problem gambling.

Tony, of Co Carlow, placed his first bet - for €1 - at the age of 24 and initially satisfied himself with small bets on football and horse racing, believing it was something he was 'really good at' and that it was an 'easy way to make money.

But the addiction took hold and Tony eventually found himself tens of thousands of euros in debt. In desperation, he began taking money from the post office he managed, believing he could use it to win big and settle his finances.

Tony is now a full-time gambling addiction counsellor with Extern Problem Gambling.

These online sessions offer a relaxed, non-judgmental forum for people to learn how to cope with whatever may be challenging their mental health or general wellbeing. We will be offering the opportunity, if you wish, to share your own experiences and hear from others in similar situations. Of, if you wish to remain anonymous throughout, you can do so too.
