Many people ended up being ruined because they did not have the strength to admit they have a gambling problem. They slipped deeper and deeper into a whirlpool that was feeding on their money, well-being and even sanity.
In the worst cases, people took their lives because they couldn’t take the burden of carrying around huge debts from the loans they took.
The mirage of earning enormous sums of money can be very luring, but once you start playing this game, you may be subjected to greater danger. And that is to sacrifice your own life.
It’s okay to want to have more. And, unfortunately, we need money to have the things we wish for. We fight all our lives to build a career and have a job that can offer what we dream about. Still, many wish to do it the easy way. They believe that gambling can help them earn lots of money in a very short time but most stories have a dramatic ending.
You tell yourself that you will try it only once, and if you don’t win, you will back up. Or if you will win, you will cash the prize and never return. Those would be wise decisions, but in very many cases this is not the reality. You come back the next time, still hoping to get the jackpot. And if you win something, you have the naivety to believe that this can turn into a comfortable lifestyle, crowned by everything you desire.
And here starts the chase you should never start. Soon, the money you earn every month will no longer suffice. And you need more.
You will begin loaning from friends and family, inventing all sorts of reasons and problems you need to solve immediately.
People will give you money, unaware of what you are up to. But the impossibility to pay them back will eventually make them stop funding you. Since gambling is mostly about losing money, and less about winning, you will end up without funds again. And then, you will face the most dangerous decision of your life, and that is to make a personal loan from the bank to support your addiction.
If you didn’t notice up until now, you are already showing sign of addiction. It acts very much like any other diseases, which eats up your being. Once you sign the papers with the bank, it is almost like signing your sentence. If you aren’t able to pay the interest rates, the bank will take everything from you. You house, your car, and everything you ever worked for will go down the drain. The earth will start tumbling around you, and what supposed to be a dream turns into the worse nightmare. People have ruined their lives and even committed suicide after not being able to pay their loans, took to support their gambling addiction. If this becomes an issue for you, choose to get help, and never take a loan for such a thing.
