Dear members of the forum, I extend a warm welcome to each of you. Since my early years, I've held a deep passion for various games, immersing myself as an enthusiastic gambler. Engaging in discussions, placing sports bets, and, candidly, diverting funds intended for my education marked my youth. To be straightforward, I've been fortunate for the majority of my life, consistently emerging unscathed or ahead. The potential danger of my gaming habits and the bitterness of defeat never crossed my mind.
Life took an unexpected turn at a gambling table, leading to debts and the liquidation of almost all my possessions, with my old Peugeot being the sole exception, during my separation from my wife. Currently, I find myself leasing a hotel, witnessing the gradual depletion of my funds. My reflections cause inner turmoil, and what's even more unsettling is recognizing that I could have chosen a different path to break free from these destructive habits. Eager to move forward, I would be grateful to hear from those who share similar experiences and to receive advice on how to progress. Thank you in advance, and I implore everyone to exercise caution when engaging in gambling activities.
