After a highly successful career in the British Army Justyn Rees Larcombe had an equally glittering and well-rewarded career in the City. He had everything. Stunningly successful in the world of insurance, he was being fast tracked for further promotion in a global company. He had wealth, a big house, a Porsche, a Mercedes. He had a beautiful wife and three sons. He lost it all through an addiction to online gambling, blowing three quarters of a million pounds in three years. Realising he could fall no further, he found recovery and, in the space of two years, incredible restoration.
In his first title, Tails I Lose, Justyn tells his ‘riches to rags, to reconciliation story’ with compelling, and often shocking honesty. Now Justyn is a public speaker, media commentator, advisor to Government, the medical profession and leading national think tanks on the issues of problem gambling and addiction in general. He has successfully campaigned for changes in the laws relating to gambling. He leads an addiction recovery course, offering both group and one to one counselling and is a trained debt and money adviser.
Justyn also leads gambling education, awareness and prevention training courses within the armed forces, professional sports clubs, schools, prisons, and financial organisations.
In his second book One Day At A Time, published in June 2016, Justyn shares practical wisdom forthose who may be struggling, or who have loved ones, struggling with secret habits, compulsions and addictions of all types.
In 2014, Justyn completed what is generally accepted as the world’s most arduous endurance swimming challenge by swimming solo across the English Channel, reunited with the Queen’s Sword of Honour he sold at the height of his addiction, he now travels the country sharing his story of hope and restoration with those who have been touched by the effects of destructive addiction.
