Gambling addiction portfolio

Postby Malajin В» 22.08.2019

.

It was my 19th birthday, I started online hunting for some bonuses and trying to find ones that are positive in expected value low wagering requirement. The result was that I ground out about 5k with bonus hustling and I thought I could use this to supplement my nonexistant income and treat this like a second job.

I was way above expectations, probably around 2 standard deviations up, I would say. Then, one day, my mom took me to build a investing portfolio, where I contributed around 2. After this, I had an unhealthy thought that I would win more with the winnings I had and would quit as soon as the action dried up. Boy was I wrong. I started chasing my losses and the first few times it worked and I was estatic. I managed to get another dollars in profit, sitting pretty at 2. First to 1. A big fat I was in a state of shock.

I couldn't believe that I lost so much. It came to me that I could use my credit cards to deposit, it seemed like money that I loan and if I were to win, I would return the money and withdraw via cash advance, what a great idea. You guys know what happened after.

I made another , withdrew, then lost it all back plus the dollar limit that I had. At the time, I was scared as all hell. I don't know where I could get more money to repay the amount in full.

It was due in 10 days and I only get paid bi-weekly at my job. Then I thought about taking money out of the investment portfolio that my mom and I created. That's when I was heading down this dark road of gambling addiction and I felt super awful. Everyday I was trying to chase my losses. Sometimes I got to even money and I even told myself to stop. But the other side of me said "look, if you stop now, you won't have any money to spend and you won't be able to go on a trip to Japan.

If you win, you would return the money and go on a trip to Japan, won't that be more lovely? I started winning at first, playing dollars, cashing out here and there, but never getting to my old "5k glory" so I kept chasing and chasing and finally, I lost it all.

I maxed out 2 credit cards for a grand total of 2k, maxed out my debit cards' over draft for a total of and my portfolio is messed up with 5k missing, some of it lost in the stock market and most of it due to withdrawals that I made trying to repay gambling debt. I'm trying to turn over a new leaf and start and the first thing I did was close all my online accounts and swear off gambling until I am able to pay off my credit cards, nurse my investment portfolio to normal and give back my mom the 10 grand she putted in my investment portfolio.

Today is the first day I didn't lay down a bet and it feels pretty good. Got myself exercising and applied to new jobs, trying to make a higher salary. The swings are always the reason it becomes a compulsive behavior. Also think what if you never gambled?

Does your mum know that you gambled the investment? Keep posting and let us know the steps you are taking. Stay gamble free and you will make that trip to Japan. Gamble free we can do pretty much anything we set our minds to.

It's just a goal for now that I have set. I hope that after paying for everything, I wilk stay off of gambling forever due to the sheer length of tine it'll take to pay off 30k or so. What have you changed around you to help you make it to today? I went into a very deep conversation with my self and found out that gambling isn't about the excitement of winning anymore, it's about resent and regret of losing that much money and trying to recover it by throwing more money at it.

If you win a small amount by chance, you will always think about the losses you have sustained and this will dilute the feeling of winning. Since I found that winning isn't about the thrills anymore and it's more of a very momentary relief of getting your initial buyin back and a slight positive variation that lies in the inevitable road to loserville. Stopped going to casinos but can't stay away from videos of other people playing slots, roulette I really don't like the thought of you watching other people playing I did the same as you and thought after 18 months of abstinence from gambling I could just watch poker and thought it was harmless, it allowed me to think I wasn't playing so what's the harm?

If I am serious at stopping I need to stay away from any form of gambling be it watching people on a fruit machine in a pub, watching tournaments on line or even playing with odds and fantasies in my head,,,, I suggest you do the same otherwise it will lead back to somewhere you really don't want to go and you always sink to new levels, believe me your young and don't want to take your life there.

Tomorrow will be thr hardest day due to the fact that I need to run an errand and the place isvery close to a casino. Another thing is that I give myself set dates that I need to repay the credit card.

The pay date I've set is 1 week from now and I am short of 2. Hope this pressure won't take me down the path of destruction that I've steered clear of for almost a week. Dajakesta, if you go on that errand with NO money you will be safe. The casino won't lure you in if you are not carrying cash. Also, I think you would be less stressed if you arrange to pay debts slowly.

CGs are impatient. Setting targets that can't be easily attained often causes us to "try our luck". Be careful! Well done on your gamble free time and your honesty. Keeping urges secret often leads us down the wrong road. I am going to register for a course, I have to bring money. But, I would have to make sure that I do not bring any extra or else I mighy go down the destructive path again.

Pretty much out of options, maxed out my credit cards, no money in the bank, cash is the only thing available. Hi guys! I abstained from going to the casino today after the errand! I feel so proud of myself but there was a bit of regret of not going even though I know the odds are against me. Do these kinds of urges come up often? Well done! Just think of the regret you would be feeling if you DID go! Urges come and go. It's how you react to them that matters.

Not quite, but if I were to quit at 5k, i would have travelled to japan. One thing jumps out at me though as typical of the thoughts of a compulsive gambler: " Hi Dajakesta It's great that you have started well,, I really don't like the thought of you watching other people playing Can you bring somebody with you or get a money order or a cheque instead of paying by cash?
