|Hi all AB gamblers, |
I have been following this forum for at least 6 years now but only started an account a couple of months back. I have been gambling since I was 18 years old , starting with an innocent bet of SGD5 for HT/FT and like most lucky first timers , won the bet of SGD55. How I wish I did not win that bet.
Fast forward to 10 years since then, I have gambled on almost anything, from football, 4D, Toto , horse betting and of course casinos. I no longer keep track of the amount of my losses but I can imagine is at least 40,000SGD accumulative. I never really went into debt , because when I lose to my last penny , I will stop for a few months and when I recover , I would continue in my folly and the whole vicious cycle simply repeats. I tried several methods by closing my online betting account, banning myself from the local casinos. It worked for a while but the itch for gambling especially when boredom hits always comes.
I have quite a cushy job with a good annual compensation package, and I travel very frequently around the region to see clients. Because of that, I will visit foreign casinos as you can imagine in Macau , Manila , Genting and Las Vegas. I won some but lost big most of the time (big to me at my age and income is somewhat 5000 over a few days)
The last straw came when I lost 15,000SGD in a single day when I was in one of the foreign casino. I was at a loss then and it drained of all my savings once again. It is just so stupid when you work hard and earn more than your peers but at the end of the day, "donating" those hard earned money to the casino or bookies.
The reason why I am writing this on the forum is to share this horrific nightmare addiction of mine and to deter anyone from going down the same road . And hopefully to myself, a warning and deterrence when I feel like gambling again, I look back at this thread of mine.
When you don't gameble , you don't lose , but you win.
Totally agreed with you, how i hope i didnt won the AOS/9 goals+ back then. Haha
