How high is your debt?
The amount may be scary but in order to pay off your gambling debt you have no choice but to face it. Calculate the exact amount of what you owe on your loans, cards and overdrafts, as well as, overdue bills. This is part of the first step in paying off your debts.
Rent, mortgage, loans, taxes and other mandatory financial contributions are the priority. Make arrangements with the different agencies. Even if each debt is important to pay off, at this point, you must prioritize.
