gambling story, ugly and true
I slept like a baby for I knew my problems would go away. When asked to show up at the casino with her passport to collect her winnings, she was deported to Mexico. Cause I highly doubt I will have it all paid. Bit my partner is a liar. You can be my friend.
Some are funny, some are sad, some other almost tragic. I enjoyed and was fascinated by many of your stories here and decided to share some of mine in a series of short stories. Here's the first one: My gambling addiction goes back a couple of decades. I was 16 when I started playing slots nobody bothered to check my age back then and as soon as I turned 18 I started visiting casinos, playing roulette at first and then, later, black jack.
I was completely addicted by my early twenties. Addicted to the point where I was late on my rent and had literally nothing to eat on many occasions. It was horrible and I sometimes resorted to actions that I never though I was capable of. Actions that I was often ashamed of. At one such occasion my rent was overdue and I asked a friend for a loan. There was no one else I could ask for help. I emigrated when I was 20 and was all on my own in a foreign country, with a bad, bad gambling addiction.
He agreed to loan me money for my rent, but knowing of my gambling habit, he warned me not to gamble, but to pay my landlord immediately. Why does he have to rub it in, I thought to myself. Of course I was going to pay the rent.
What was he thinking? That I would gamble away my rent money now that my rent is overdue? Not the friendliest thing to do, but I have only myself to blame. Anyway, I was going to pay the landlord. Had somebody asked me what I thought the odds were of me stopping at the casino on my way home and losing all that money, I would have said less than 1 in No way was I going to do that. But then I realized something.
Benny knew that he would be caught if Jake told anyone. Yet the same year, the nation's public health officials embarked on a deliberate public-relations campaign to mislead the American people into thinking that AIDS was spreading inexorably into the mainstream. Blood spurted up, like water from a whale. Are you prepa Good day.
"We wanted to reduce the stigma," acknowledges a CDC official.
Thank you in advance for reading. If you saw me growing up, it wouldn't be hard to tell that I would grow up to love gambling. As a kid I enjoyed betting other kids on everything, buying raffle tickets to everything, playing bingo, etc.
Heck I'm sure obsessively trading and collecting Pokemon cards contributed too. Sratch that, I know it did. I was first taken to a casino when I was 18 and I was hooked. It all started small, 40 dollars here, 50 dollars there. I had no idea what I was doing so I stuck to what my buddy played, which was roulette.
Then the tables called. Soon enough I was at blackjack buying in a couple of hundred dollars. It was definitely controlled. Then I remember the day I turned 19 when I was finally legal to gamble at my home town. Back then, this was definitely huge for me. I was absolutely distraught. How I wish I could go back and tell that kid to keep that mentality. You see at this entire time I had been a university student doing my science undergraduate degree.
Fortunately for me or unfortunately my degree was being paid for by a trust fund my parents had set up. The unfortunate part about that is it made me take my money for granted and I just kept gambling the money I made from working.
I've never been one to spend money on anything As time wore on I kept using whatever credit I had access to; the buy-ins and loses got larger. I asked to apply for a student line of credit to consolidate my current debts at a lower interest rate. This was bad news I realized credit can be available to me. This was the last time I was 'in the black'. Because after that night I wasted my money chasing to hit that mark again.
