    Gambling addiction is just? like being hooked on drugs too. It takes control over your life until you realized you have nothing left. No family, no friends, no money, no work. Seek help while it is not too late.

    Seems to? be the same story for most people or those who will admit their loses.
    Short term wins that are eventually reabsorbed back in to the gambling dens as continued play eventually extracts any wins and more of your money .
    These establishments know this and they count on addiction to fuel their empires.
    Government are the enablers and partners in this what I call criminal behavior.

  • LoveMEsumLISSA says:

    The right time to try and quit is immediately? even if you have had huge losses. Going back to try and recoup what you lost can cause you to lose even more.

    Some people thinks I got a gambling problem I don’t think I do. I go to bingo 2-4 times a week when I got time. I got a job so that is mostly my first proprity to make money beside of loosing money. Every time I go to bingo I spend my money little by little. Usually I spend to $60-$100 a week on bingo in total not all in once. Each game pays you $100. As I remember I spend $306 the lst 3 weeks but I won lst nite it help me alot to recover a little & $206 is still in the drain sadly.?

    How did this guy change? his behaviour

  • sonbridges29 says:

    I’ve lost over £2000 in the past couple of? years and although that’s not a life damaging amount it’s not healthy, your dopamine and adrenaline levels fluctuate incredibly during a bet, similair to cocaine.
    Besides, the fact of the matter is bookmakers are there to make a book of odds that benefit the company. Punters don’t really stand a chance from the start.

    I’m going to try my hardest to stop.
