Video transcript: Feeling like my old self again

[Mate serving food from bar-b-que to friends at a party in a backyard]

[Former gambler] That’s my best mate. It’s good to see him again. My betting got a bit out of hand. You don’t think your friends will notice but he did. I had a couple of good chats online with someone at Gambler’s Help and I got some advice that really worked. I didn’t think I needed it at first but I’m so glad I did it when I did. I’m feeling like my old self again.

[Mate looks up from task and speaks to former gambler]

[Former gambler] What are you looking at?

[Mate] Just a salad for you, mate?

[Former gambler] Yeah right mate.

[Both laugh]

[Party goers at table enjoying their meals together in the sunshine in the backyard]
