In this 30-minute film Dr Henrietta Bowden-Jones, Founder and Director of the National Problem Gambling Clinic, talks to Owen Baily about his past experiences and problems with gambling.
Owen talks openly about his childhood, including his early attraction to fruit machines and his first experience of bookmakers, and how he came to look at gambling as a means of escape.
The Royal College of Psychiatrists leaflet on Problem Gambling has useful information for anyone who is worried about their gambling, or the family, partner and friends of anyone whose gambling has become a problem: http://www.rcpsych.ac.uk/healthadvice...
