  5. hahaha am was just starting to gamble and its the best video that is scarier than any horror movies i knew of hahaha

  6. After a similar story, on deferent specifics, I too climbed out of the hole that I dug and put my family and myself in. Priorities HAD to change. This isnt about having stuff….owning more….making more. The selfishness that I lived makes me sick today. Am thankful that my wife didnt take my family away from me….that was now 7-1/2 years ago. What an amazing family that I have the opportunity to be a part of. I also learned not to be so judgmental of others in difficult situations, even if it was caused by poor and self destructive actions. I can assure you that it can happen to anyone given the right circumstances and frame of mind. Wont bore anyone with the details, but life is not only better now, its better than its ever been. Even so, I wouldnt wish that path on anyone

  7. If you seek advice to stop gambling—> I have my biggest lost as my background picture on my phone so I can remind myself how bad i felt.

  8. I just lost €3000 and lost €30.000 this month from this moment i will never bet ever again if i dont stop i will ruin everthing i have, i will lose every friend every family member, i just want to say dont ever gamble ever not even a 1 € bet its not worth it wish me luck …

  9. I am in this position right now. The urge to get it more is something that I need to work on. Wish me luck Guys. I have been cheating my family for years with this addiction and I really need put an END to this. Like everyone here, I have suicidal feelings, anger built gradually and lost sensitivity towards relationships. I just started to repent of this to my close ones and I feel that I can overcome this. Everyone out there, we can beat this together and praying for you all.

  10. I just gambled away my rent for a total of $4,000 now… I can’t stop emptying my account when I get paid…sick to my stomach

  11. Last bet 2021 January 14. It is completely destroying my life. And I have a good life. I dont want to collapse.

  12. Last bet was today, its time to quit as i lost over 500$ as a 16 yr old now and i need to quit! Hopefully next year will be a new year 🙁

  13. i’ve been trying to stop for so long and i just keep throwing it away. hopefully today can really be my final day.

  14. I would research to see if your sons problem is related to the 100 vaccines kids take now. Pretty much all health probs are from the poison in the vaccines

  15. lost around £9000 in the last 7 months, last bet was on 31 oct 2020, never gonna play that sh*t again. pls guys stop if you’re still playing right now, it is so bad for your health, mentality, etc. just don’t do it, if you’re winning right now just cash out immediately or else you’re gonna lose all of it in a split second

  16. Went to the casino a few days ago with $60. Left with $750. Went back the next night and won again, another $650. $1400 I had.

    Went back tonight, lost everything. Absolutely torn up about it. Such a rush, but the self loathing hurts the most. Don’t gamble, use that money for something nice. Something you can use, be proud of.

  17. Today I felt that, yes this is it, it has destroyed me already. i want to stop it but I don’t know how to cover up debts. I am really worried.

  18. The right video for me now… as I’m in self destruct now.. losing thousands of dollar just this week, and I’m just an average husband not rich losing his entire life savings… I’m actually crying watching this video. I deeply relate. I hope I will be okay… for my son’s future. Pray for me.

  19. Oh my apologies, to the side who’s story this is, I commend you for your openness and your willingness to share your story and in such a way it will inspire and encourage the next person to fix their addiction! May you and yours be blessed

  20. I gambled away $380000 cad over 6 years and I quit but last week I gambled for the first time in 9 months I won 2300 but I don’t want to become addicted again

  21. God bless you! I needed this so badly today. My husband of 21 yrs has a big secret. I have asked him if he had gotten in over his head. I told him he could tell me and I would be right beside him fighting this beast with him. He WILL NOT admit it. He gets mad at me. We have nothing left of our once magical relationship and friendship. I’m lost. I don’t know what to do.

  22. I felt as if my addiction was getting bad, i quickly seeked the help i needed, and 4 months strong. Please get help before it gets worse, it can destroy everything

  23. these evolution gaming guys have ruined my life.. im poor guy from Pakistan, whether i got 1$ or 100 ill play online blackjack and loose instead of buying some quality food or new clothes for myself.. They made people addicted to loosing..

  24. Won 200$ off poker second night I was down 50 it’s all rigged don’t let others peoples winnings encourage you to bet more. You never know their true count

  25. I hope i get trough this. The hardest part is when you stop there is no penny left and the urge to win it back is so damn horrible!

  26. I’m super angry at my dad right now. He had won about 10k just 5 days ago, and he promised to stop because he had reached his goal. But then today he just lost all 10k! I don’t know if it’s my fault, I told him to die this morning before he went to the casino and lost the 10k. I was extremely angry at him for very small thing because I have serious anxiety plus depression. I wonder if I had made him so angry that he lost his mind… My dad just asked his friend to borrow 250 dollars to gamble again, but his friend said that he doesn’t have much money. I’m typing this while my dad is at the casino btw…

  27. Lost nearly 25000 £ all my savings and earnings. Tried to commit suicide a couple of times. I am only 26

  28. I like ti gamble on sports. if u do it in a safe way. bet small and within reason. ur fine lol. this guy had a wife and kids. I am single. pro gambler but bet within reason. lol

  29. Can I please get some help also, last year I attended therapy session that seemed to work for me but since the lockdown I have fallen to that trap also. In the last 3 months I have managed to get myself to just over 50k debt, and yesterday I lost all my salary with out even settling on bill. I’m in South Africa 🇿🇦 by the way. I don’t know where to go because my credit record is now in the bad state. And I need to buy food for my family and my 3 month old baby 👶 girl. I’m so angry at myself I can’t even look at myself in the mirror. The time is after 1 am but I cannot sleep

  30. I just realized i have gambled around 20 years i need help…. my life ruined.. i ruined my family lives.. i ruined my friends lived.. i need help…

  31. Well said bro…. Mental discipline is very important… I won 31000 with 3000.. I lost all 31000 same day by night…. I
    wanted to quit but My mind didn’t allowed me… So I was chasing my intial deposit 3000, I lost 55000 in 10 days….

  32. Sports Betting is extremely hard, one must decide if they’re betting for entertainment, thrill, leisure or if they want to make money. You can’t have both, I’ve worked in the sports betting industry for 20yrs most of it as a sports book manager for some of the biggest offshore sport books. 4 years ago I decided to go on the other side of the counter and start a sports betting educational platform that highlights the traps and mistakes to avoid when betting and help people improve their overall sports betting IQ.

    I meet a lot of people that say they want to win money betting sports. As with most things in life you can tell how badly someone wants to achieve a goal by what they are willing to sacrifice to obtain it. Most bettors don’t have the time, energy or discipline to win long term. Paying someone for picks is NOT a way to win long term and that’s the extent most bettors will go to in order to win. You have to invest in yourself and learn how to identify value and find predictive indicators in the market. There’s the art and then there is the science in sports betting. In my experience, people that excel at one, lack the other. You can win money betting sports but it’s not what most think, it’s the hardest way to make an easy living and if people understood the time and discipline it takes to grind out a profit betting sports they would likely rather work a 9-5 job instead. TRUST ME WHEN I SAY THIS, you will not win long term if you don’t put in the necessary time not just educating yourself on how to bet (art) but also who and when to bet on (science)
