Well if you have lost so much of money and realsise that you have got addicted to gambling, get out of it now. I am telling you out of experience. It will bring you to a stage where you start doing things which you could not believe to get hold of some money to try and gamble. ITs difficult but try to stop going to these places. Start one at a time if you find it difficult to let go of all. Get to work on something which you are passionate about so that it keeps you engrossed.

Stop gambling. Get help, even if you have to seek psychiatric help, do it. Gambling is basically a mugs game and as they say, the only people who ever do well out of gambling are the bookies, casino owners and the government who makes allot of money from gambling taxes. I think allot of gamblers get seduced by the fact that you hear stories of people winning hundreds of millions in some state lottery or other. However, what most people don't realise is that these guys are in the tinny minority. Most people who buy lottery tickets never actually win. Its like they may spend a couple of hundred dollars in a year on lottery tickets. They may be lucky enough to win fifty bucks once or twice. However, instead of walking away with their winnings, the small win actually acts as an incentive to throw away more money on the results of a horse race or on a throw of a dice, or in a card game etc. If you owe money, its even more of a reason for you to stop gambling. Don't borrow any money and work to repay your debts. There is such a thing known as a good debt and a bad debt. Good debts are the ones where you use the money to make yourself money or you invest in an education or buy a house. Bad debt is when you throw away your money and gambling is definitely a bad debt. Get out now while you still can.
