Well, it's 1.38am here I am, lying in bed next to my beautiful wife and all I can think about is how I can repay the $38000 I have managed to spend in the pokies in little over 1 year. My first gambling experience was back when i was 18, same old story had a few wins and fell into the trap of thinking this would happen all the time. Over time my spend limit went up until finally my only restriction was daily ATM withdrawal limits. To overcome this obstacle over the counter bank withdrawals. I believe I do have a gambling problem and this needs to be sorted before I lose everything. To sit back and take stock of the situation really hits home that I have missed out on putting that money towards a better use. I thought I had a hold on things I am highly educated and hold down a respectable job, yet here I am feeding an indescriminate habit that will ultimately, and I know this, cost me more than I can imagine. It's a cancer. A cancer that I am going to beat. I will never put another cent in those machines again.
