For more than 12 years, Patrick Foster lived a double life. A popular and sociable young teacher and former professional cricketer, he had a lovely girlfriend and a supportive family. But he was hiding a secret and debilitating gambling addiction that pushed him to the edge of the platform at Slough station. Problem gambling affects one in 200 people in the UK alone. Hundreds lose their lives annually as a result. The industry is worth more than £14 billion. With co-writer Will Macpherson, Patrick tells a shocking, cautionary tale of just how easy it is to fall victim to the insidious lure of 'winning big'.
