In this second of three videos, Helenna walks us through her transformation as a young woman who knowingly gave in to her father’s demands for money to gamble, to being addicted to gambling herself. With the death of her father acting as the catalyst for her downward spiral, she tells us how her father’s cautionary tale almost ended up being the blueprint for her own life, and how she circumvented disaster.

In collaboration with Not Safe For TV, this video is part of a series that explores normalised addictions and how it has become hard to discern between recreation, problematic abuse, and addiction.
