This is my first day. I am an addict. I remember playing games as a child. When I was studying at the university I didn’t have enough money or my incomes were quite low. I saw an online casino advert and decided to give it a try. I lost a lot, but then I won a lot. From that day I have been gambling at online casinos a lot. It went so bad that I had to take fast loans to gamble more and more and eventually I didn’t have enough money to pay the bills.
That was awful times.
Now I have a girlfriend that I love the most and I want to stop gambling. I gambled a lot and take a loan to gamble more. I can’t stop gambling when Im in it. So now its time to stop. I send an email for the casinos to ban me forever. That was the first step. No more gambling for me.
