I’m new to online gambling and I play roulette , few months back after a day of drinking i wagered few hundred bucks and suddenly within a month I made over 25k
But my family life and peace was a mess even when I was winnin. Those late nights abusing with alcohol and being away from family and waking up with anxiety .
As it always happens I did not stop even when I promised everyday to myself and I started to loose every day , I have myself break for a few weeks but every second week after I numb my mind with alcohol I relapse .
Last night I lost all I made ( the winnings ) , I must be break even or loosing very little but the thoughts of depression is so huge about my mistakes
Of playing and how I lost all the winnings
And what will I do in future if I have access to funds .
I have read people loosing houses and paying debts for years , I cannot even bear the loss from winning and I can’t even share these things with everyone as we are a orthodox family , anyone with any advice would please help me move on without getting stuck at this place
Thank you 🙏
