  9. Online gambling addiction story #1 • Gambling Is Sucking The Life Out Of Me!!!!! • “I am addicted to online gambling. It has been a part of my life for the last 10 years. I have filed for bankruptcy had two failed relationships and continue to do it. • I am a single dad who has custody of my 10 year old daughter and also have a 3 year old who does not reside with me. • I was always a casual gambler but now I have become a loner and my entire days are consumed with it. I was laid off from my job of 15 years in May and have not moved from the computer. I am spending my all my cash on these sites and feel horrible about it but cannot seem to stop. • I am concerned with this economy I will be in serious trouble. I know i should not do it but I still continue to do it and still lose. It is a no win situation and it feels like it is taking my life away. I continue to blame everyone else while keep this gambling a secret. It is destroying me and the problem is I cannot stop. • I am not a bad person but do feel like the biggest piece of trash. What can I do to kick this habit before I lose everything.” • From Username: Ricko219 •

  10. Online gambling addiction story #2 • From Depression to Gambling and More Depression • “I am an online casino addict. I don't care about playing anything but slots. I've won many times but never cashed in because I didn't want to deal with the IRS. My mom was diagnosed with cancer in 2004 and died 6 months later in 2005. The week of her death, I won 65K dollars at an online casino. I won 7K and 15K later in 2005 and haven't won a penny since. I use to walk away and take a break when I start losing. But now I find myself "chasing the win". A major sign of an addict. When I find myself in the house alone and can't sleep at night, I start gambling. I've almost lost my home, my car, all of my savings are gone and I can't seem to stop myself. I've tried to find help centers in my area but have not found any. My account is always overdrawn because I can't stop spending money I don't have I ordered software to download on my laptop to block access to all gambling sites. It interfered with all of my Yahoo games and kept locking up my laptop, so I wiped my drive clean to get rid of it (it was the only way to get rid of it) and ended up gambling all over again. I've tried reading instead, shutting down the laptop when the urge hits, playing "for fun" without monies being involved, but I always end up spending my money gambling and falling short when it is time to pay bills. I stop for a week or two, then I go overboard once I give in and make that one bet. I am reasonably intelligent. I never thought I'd ever find myself in such a fix.” • From Username: use2beingalone •
