Yes you can still file, but the trustee (and the court) will likely want to see some sort of efforts to deal with the gambling (AADAC attendance or the like). As well, there is a good possibility that your discharge will be opposed by a creditor as your behavior clearly played a substantial role in getting yourself into this situation.

Best thing to do is to contact a local trustee and they will be able to give you a better idea of what happens in your jurisdiction.
