    Hey all, I’ve had this account for a while now. I was 2 months clean, and just had a massive relapse. I was able to save up $4900 all on my own but ended up blowing it all tonight on blackjack and slots. I’ve tried everything to quit. Self exclusion, closing accounts, gamban, and basically every other strategy under sun. I’m losing hope here. Further context, I just recently graduated college. I have a lot of student loan debt, and a big part is because of gambling. Probably close to 60k. Another 20k car loan. I only make about 3k to 4k a month. These debts are getting to large. I am scared and Im alone. Hence why I am here I suppose. I don’t know what to do anymore. This post is either the beginning of my sobriety, or another reminder I need to win it all back. Right now I’m not feeling so hopeful.

      Hello, Im a month late reading your text but I hear you. Congratulations on graduating that’s a big accomplishment and you should be proud of yourself. Gambling it’s not easy to quit. I know you have lost a lot and trying to chase your loses isn’t the answer. You will lose way. I get it you just want your money that you lost but you have to let it go and make sure them type of places don’t get another dime from you.
