Ive selfexcluded before neverworked longterm theremany other places i can go to.the urges build up and then igamble worse. worsepart is thejudgement people get. we all deserve happiness, ifthe government isallowing thesethings then they have a responsibility tohelp themillions who gamble.

I wonder sometimes if it isn't the Government that is behind it all.

yep some evil system...

There is no big conspiracy happening. Gambling is a major source of tax revenue for the government. Look at Vegas .... those casinos are obviously making massive amounts of money, and it's all taxed (or should be lol). Eve your winnings are taxed! As for the government being responsible for helping .... no one is responsible for your actions but you. There are a lot of programs out there to help people with gambling problems. You chose to gamble, knowing the risks. You, I assume, now have a problem with gambling. What are YOU doing to help yourself?

I am trying to stop and it's so difficult it seems. It's so ironic since I really worked hard to save and now I just gamble it away.

@soffia It is so ironic and baffling. I do the same thing. I have been killing myself emotionally and financially for years and years because of this insidious, evil addiction. I am so sorry you are going through what I know too well.
