      Gambling is just a form of trickery. I dangle a carrot in a horse’s face, it shall move. You dangle lights and the notion I might just win big, I shall gamble. In both scenarios, the horse nor I win.
      I don’t know why I gamble, but I want to stop. A casino is there to trick me and take my money, and I’ve succumbed to that trickery thus far.
      No longer shall I let myself be tricked.
      They say gambling is a game, and it’s there, “to be fun.” Games such as COD, RuneScape, hell, even Fortnite, those are fun. Those are games which require, none, if a minimal amount, of money to be put in.
      Gambling requires too much to be put in for me. I cannot contain myself on a loss nor a win. In the end, I always end up losing my winnings.
      I shall, henceforth, always expect to lose while gambling; I know now that I’m simply being tricked if I gamble.
      No longer shall I let myself be tricked.

      I’m sick and tired of fighting this battle. Looking back on my life, everything connects to gambling. It is my mistress and devours everything in it’s path.
      I am looking to find help on this forum and maybe help someone else.
      Thank you
