Important message to everyone here



It does not make any logical sense to keep gambling. We have to be aware that our brains are wired differently. If you ask any person on the street about gambling, they would say we gamblers are out of our minds. And they are correct. Just think about it for a minute. Handle your whole paycheck to a stranger in exchange for making you stressed out the whole time? even worse, handing out future paychecks (debt) in exchange for bad things? Thinking about it, I think what we are buying is hope. We hope we can strike it big. But even then, we might strike it big, but only to lose all of it again in an instant. Numbers do not lie. The law of big numbers say that we will lose the house edge of all our bets placed, which in the end, that tiny percentage, will be huge. You’ll be shocked. I am 31, and realized that if I keep doing what I do, I will be 40 in no time, at a very crucial time in our lives. I have been gambling for some 11 years total. On and off. I have had several episodes where I have really wanted to stop, even 10 years back. I wished I did. I remember six years ago, a guy at a blackjack table asked me to have a smoke with him outside and warned me about gambling. He said I looked like a decent person and doesn’t want me on the path he and other people are in. 60k gambling down the drain in my lifetime, of which 8k is debt. Some 30k on some other risky investments. I wish I stopped eight years ago when I fessed up to a friend. I wish I stopped six years ago when I was pissed about losing 200 dollars and the guy at the casino gave me a friendly reminder of what gambling is on a bigger scale. I wished I stopped two years ago, when I fessed up to my mom crying. I wish I stopped a year ago, after I lost income due to covid, which made the debt situation worse. I do not want to be a year from now saying: I wish I stopped February 2021. If you are 20 years old and have lost 10k, just think about being 30 and losing 100k. Or 40 and being down 500k. Or 50 and down a million. Just stop now. See my other thread on how we lose big with the seemingly small house edge. To recap my gambling career: 60k loss. 8k debt. Probably some ten thousand hours lost gambling, many others lying and worrying. At the same time, that was time I could have done something constructive with my life. I am stuck on a job I do not like, in part due to my passiveness on not keeping improve myself. Wanting to build businesses, but not doing it due to either not having money or being too busy with it. How easy life would have been if I just worked and kept money in the bank or put it on an index fund? getting home, reading a book or just chilling out? well, I was not able to do that. I fear that if I continue this path, I will be exactly where I am right now but much older. It really is unexcusable. In regards to other areas of my life, I want to get an MBA but will not bea able to pay for it nor have any mind to do it if I keep on gambling. Same goes for a side business. Regarding my personal life, I want a girlfriend but lately have let myself go, so not confidence in going out with the kind of women I would like to date. Who would want to date a broke gambler who just gets home and stares at scores at the screen? I am 31, so am still in age, I think, so will get my life on track. I will not forgive myself if I am 40 and wasted another decade on this nonsense. These are my prime years. I must use them fully. If I stop now, I think I will be able to pay off all debt and be able to pay a pending trip I have to make overseas in the summer, all in this year. It sounds easy but is hard at the same time. It sounds like a long time, but 10 months go by fast. submitted by /u/gamblingsucksass [comments]
