- Monzo Blog: “How I beat my gambling addiction and started paying off £100,000 in debt”
As a Monzo account holder myself, I was delighted to share my experiences with Kate Hollowood (Twitter - @katehollowood). We hurried up the blog's release to make sure it was published as early as possible during the lockdown. In the blog, I share my gambling and recovery experiences and highlight how Monzo has helped me rebuild my financial independence. Monzo was one of the first banks to introduce a gambling blocker, and I regularly recommend them to others. Click here to read the full article.
- BBC HOOKED: The Unexpected Addicts
A notification went off on my phone in my pocket. I was in an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting at the time, and I couldn’t check it. Upon leaving the meeting, I pulled the phone out of my pocket. The message was from Melissa Rice, one of the hosts of BBC Hooked: The Unexpected Addicts, asking me if I wanted to appear on their next episode. I responded with a big “yes, yes, yes” straight away. This was a great opportunity for me to appear on a podcast that I had listened to religiously. Wednesday mornings were BBC Hooked morning. This podcast has helped many in recovery and has made big steps in breaking the stigma associated with addiction. This episode, “Your Stories,” includes me and another guest, Grace, talking with Melissa and Jade (Wye) about our personal experiences. Once you have listened to this episode, I urge you to listen to the others. This podcast is a real gamechanger. Melissa and Jade are awesome and inspired me to get involved with All Bets Are Off.
