      If I were to go back 3 years ago, I would never put my first bets. It starts with only 100 CAD and eventually goes up to 10K bettings. I have tried quitting but never worked, every time I feel like I am about to get out always end up going back. I have already self-excluded all gambling websites I know and I will try my best to not think about my loss all those years. I am so sick of myself getting through the loop like this. I never had guts to tell my family and my girlfriend, now I lost all my savings about 60K, Jesus please help me work through this.

      I wish the same thing – that I never placed that first bet 17 years ago. I am still struggling with this addiction and trying not to think about the losses over the many years. The gambling sites make it so easy to bet and reverse withdrawals and now we are constantly bombarded with gambling ads on radio and TV with celebrities that it’s a struggle to not have urges. My family also does not know about my addiction and because of language barrier, I can never go to my parents for help. I hope we both can find a way to overcome this illness.
