      Hello every1. Im new here. Im 28 years old. I have been small gambling since i was 16. But the years passed and i started to gambling even more and more.
      In the last 2 years i lost over 10k euro. For me is a lot of money. The last month i lost 2k. AND everytime i said i will quit and boom im there
      and gambling again and again. Today i lost again, and i promised to my self that i will QUIT. I dont own any money to no1. (thats the good part) but with
      all those money i could buy a new CAR! new computer, so many things. I created this just to visit everyday and say im still out!.

      Really similar to you dude, started gambling at the same age, lost more, around 15k. My parents provided me with money for gambling before, and I gambled away all my earnings from my job and my investments. I just gambled away my last earnings a few minutes ago. I really hate myself right now, but we will get through this together my friend!

      I’m so glad you’ve decided to join this forum. Please visit every single day and celebrate each one as it passes, gambling free! This journey will not be an easy one but it is possible. Self-exclude from all platforms online, put blocks on your devices and internet so that you can’t gamble and try to figure out your triggers. Why do you gamble? That should really help you to remove the urge!
