Iost my entire student loan to addiction

A few days ago I got a loan just to cover living expenses while at university (I plan to become an agent for Medicine Without Borders), and thought I could trust myself with it. Unfortunately my latent gambling addiction resurfaced and after a winning streak I put my whole loan on one bet, along with most of the rest of my savings. My bank account was cleaned out for it. My heart dropped into my stomach when I saw the result: I'd lost 2 thousand pounds in one go. 

The terrible thing is, I went to bed knowing, even while I wondered how and where I would live through the winter, that I would just go back to it tomorrow. Sure enough, I lost the rest of my savings trying to get it back.

I am now trying to seek treatment for my addiction, but the fact remains that I simply won't be able to pay rent or even buy much food in the next couple of months, as things stand. Jobs are scarce in this time and region, too. If I get kicked out of my accommodation, I don't know where I'll store my stuff, let alone sleep at night. 

I'm asking at least for enough to cover my food bills for the winter; I know it's too much to hope to get significant help towards recovering my loan for rent, but I'm putting it out there anyway. . . I know I seem pathetic for this, but some of us do have this problem with gambling. Even poorer people like me. I'm just asking somebody to help a little as I try to live in the next months.
