I am 25 i started gambling when i was 18 and now i just cant stop. I have self excluded myself from the casino, i have seen a therapist, i have read a book on how to stop gambling but i still keep gambling every last paycheck until i am flat broke. My father is a gambler and he lost his family, many properties and everything in his name to gambling. My mother is well off but i can see it is hurting her to see me go down the same path as my father. I am not a complete idiot i went to good schools, showed promise in my education and attended university for a time. I wish i could stop and make a life formyself but it just keeps going on and on...
Money, Properties, and even your relationship to your family or love ones will be at risk. That's why if ever you gamble and still have some senses in you, I really suggest that you should stop it. Because we don't know, anytime soon, the money you have worked hard (or received), properties, and even family will just vanish in an instant. Many people can support this opinion.
I have seen people play and they just suffer through and waste a lot of their money just on gambling. If you need money, get a good enough job and work hard to earn it by yourself.
Don't get addicted by it, It is a very very bad habit indeed.
I have lost every bit of money i ever earned in the past eight years including my 401k and settlements. The thing is you dont realize you have already had anything the slots will pay many times over until its gone. Slots are the worse becouse they toy with you up and down but eventually all the way town. I live in a small truck rear compartment and lost my only daughter twice. She doesnt have any living relatives on her mothers side so i became a deadbeat dad becouse i couldnt stop going o matter how much i lost or how painful. Now my daughter is looking for an apartment with some new boyfriend becouse the money i was suppose to use for life went to these evil places that rob the poor for a promised chance to regain some. The chance never comes. Gambling will leave you depressed and suicidal the people who have never been addicted say its a positive thing to have a casino. Only the ones who have lost it all know how false that statement to be.
I have been an addict for 10 years.Before gambling i was in control of all finances,gambling rewires your brain, there is you,and then there is your addiction,that wants to be fed,as it gets stronger very fast, its in control of you,it has taken 8 years to be free from this
I have been there, trust me. Gambling will leave you in the cold. The casino does not care about you. They are in business to make a profit, and they will.
I have won for the moment only to give it back - then some. Embarrassing situations of not having a cent to my name. Think about that. A grow man that risks his family's future on a gamble.
Everything will be ok if you stop. Just put it out of your life. When you hear the stories of winning just move on. It's fantasy and it will rob you of your life and the lives of the ones you love. STOP. What more can I say. Trust me, it is not worth it.THE END.
Going to the casino to gambling can only bring you down. The odds of winning a big jackpot is slim pickings.. You are sure to loose your mortgage, rent, car payment and kids college funds ..Gambling will destroy your life after you become addicted to loosing and believing that you will win the next time. Don't get played thinking you will get paid. All the best...
Gambling definitely ruins lives. The financial devastation left behind from a gambling addiction can last generations. It not only ruins the lives of the gambler but also family members. You can lose everything you work your whole life for in seconds. It adds no value to society while creating massive financial hardships. Anybody who says no has obviously never been around or affected by a compulsive gambler. It should be outlawed and put in the same category as drugs. I know I'm a gambler.
The amount of time spent on the fixated task keeps you from the .More intimate moments In marriage living with a person besides the 40 hours a week I clock in. In other words the gambler ignores the spouse. You saw the rose you loved it picked it but forgot to water it.
Gambling is an addiction that takes all our money in a flash and leave us miserably. Gambling casino = hell
gambling took all my cash . Steal my music career , steals my life ,
government does not care , they just want tax .
You die , it's your problem
Gambling is a recreational game. Although, some do get addicted, that would be like an obese man eating butter. He is addicted to butter and eats it all the time. It is bad for him but he has gotten so use to butter and eats it so much he has ran out. Now he's committing crimes just to get butter and stealing from his family. Now.. We should make butter illegal. That would not be fair to everyone else using it responsibly. Now, can gambling destroy a someone's life? Why not ask, is that person the one using gambling as a scapegoat for their ruined life.
Gambling does not ruin anyone's lives, it just depends on whether the person DECIDES to bring it on or just ignores it. BUT if people are stupid then they will easily fall into the trap but seriously it just depends on how smart the person is to let gambling take over their life or ignore it.
