I honestly Don’t know how to start . But I have to make an effort I got this platform on my way to terminate all gambling sites on my phone . I decided to participate. Because I really I’m finished. Gambling made me a beast I couldn’t keep proper communication for 5 years because at ever instance of communication I will want to take money from whomever I was communicating with, I felt bad about it but I couldn’t stop myself from doing so. I gambled ever piece of money I had .I even sold out my things, I was so addicted that I gambled out my school fees for years . I’m really a disappointment to my family and wish I could eventually be normal again.
