This is a shocking story of how a free £5 bet led to a full blown addiction to online gambling. How someone who had it all could loose everything, including his job, his family and his home and then find hope and restoration.

Justyn Rees Larcombe had everything. Highly successful fast-track career. Beautiful wife and three sons.
