      I’m 28 years old, I started playing fobt’s in October 2009, when I used work for the forensic science services as an forensic scientist, I’ve been working there for 3 and half years when in oct 2009 I was suspended for 2 months for unprofessional behaviour at court, basically I work in the child abuse/sexual assault department, and I’m passionate about child being abuse and women being raped,, I worked on one case for 1 year when in court the judge dismissed the case due to some silly **** he had stuck up his arse the old fart, and I got angry and said some things to the judge I was removed for the court room and put in to remand , then give a £1500 fine and told that im suspended without pay for 2months ,,, 
       this should have been it, I should have went home man up to my wife and tell what happened,,, but no, no, no, big man over here thought I can lie and hid it from my missus,,, and guest ever since then all ive been doing is bull****ting to her…..

      to add from my last message,,,,
      after my suspension 3months later we were given redundancies, because the forensic science services was government owned but in billions of pounds in debts loosing 3million a day, it was closed down in late 2011,,,
      I did find a job within the scientific industry (pharmaceutical), but ever since then its been the same **** different day for myself,,,,
      today I didn’t go to the bookies, but all day I was thinking about that basted machine,,, I know this isn’t normal, and deep down, I know I’m ill, or some thing wrong in my head,, 
      but I have promise my self no matter what im not going in the bookie again, that includes footy accumulators, Irish lotto, 49s lotto, horses, dogs,   
      so I’ve finally cashed out……….. and the pay out ticket amount is -£46,700….
      REMEMBER: when your chasing your loses, your actually chasing a ghost, which you’ll never catch………
      kind regardsone love
