    Thank you for this very useful interview with Professor Jim Orford. I work as a problem gambling counsellor with Gamcare and I feel the challenge of controlling or stopping gambling is made unnecessarily difficult because of the incessant advertising of gambling through TV, mobile and internet channels from which compulsive gamblers struggle to escape. I think Gambling Watch UK is an excellent initiative owing to independent status and I am willing to support the organisation where I am able.
