After three months of counselling with Oasis I can confidently say that I am no longer a pokie gambler. The old me has gone and I am happy again.
What was really helpful about Oasis was that the counsellors have great knowledge around gambling. Also, the ability to stop myself from gambling at venues and putting these stops in place.
I have money to spend on myself and my mokos. I am back in control of my life, my health, my finances and my wellbeing, my love life. I am now a happier mum, nanna and partner. Thanks Oasis for giving me my life back.
