I need advice and help
Hey guys this is my first ever time on this site. I came here because i just lost everything in my bank account again. Im completely addicted to slot machines. I have played poker now and then throughout my life and lost more money than ive wanted to but its never ever been to the point im at with these slot machines.
I got introduced to them about a year or 2 ago and won a jackpot, and ever since then i have lost thousands and thousands of dollars. I lost everything i had about a year ago. Lost my car due to not paying payments, pawned everything off. Lost everything and put it all into gambling. I ended up fixing my life up and stopped playing for a few months, worked hard. Bought me a cheap car for work, had about 3k in my savings and then boom i got drunk and started gambling again. Lost my entire savings in 2 weeks and then sold my car and used that money and lost it too.
Could not believe it. So i quit gambling AGAIN and managed to stop for a few months and saved up about 4k this time, got me a very nice car now and and saved up another 2k. So had a flash car with 2k in savings. Low and behold i started slot machines again and found myself going back trying to chase losses and lost my entire savings again in 1 week. Now i have spent the last month using my entire pay check on slot machines and quitting gambling, just to return again the following week when i get paid again.
I now just lost my pay check again and im trying my hardest to quit. I have no money left but still have my flash car. I am now paying bad credit loan which is only 50$ a week for the next 7 weeks which isnt too bad but i had got the pay advance to buy food since i didnt buy any before i lost my money. Now im broke and used that pay advance to gamble aswell.
I just need advice on how to stop gambling. Why is my brain so hooked on it? One day i can say im quitting and the next im losing everything again. Is this some sort of mental problem i have and do i have to spend the rest of my life trying to not lose everything i own to slot machines. Does the urge ever go away or is this a fight im stuck in for the rest of my life. This all started from that god dam jackpot i won and i wish i was never introduced to slots now. It has ruined my life. I want to stop playing slots forever, i can have so much money saved up but i keep going back and im tired of it. So sick and tired.
Sorry for rambling on so much and thank you to anyone that took the time to read through it all.
