You have gambled all your money, right?
You already borrowed money from everyone you know, no one trust you anymore. Your creditors are calling you ten times a day. And you’re still dreaming of this lucky spin or a winning bet.
You’re living under permanent stress and you think that there is no way out of this situation. Your family is falling apart, your phone has been cut off, ..another direct debit payment has failed..
You don’t drive your car anymore, do you?
Oh, you do? Come on, we both know that you’re taking a big risk driving uninsured and untaxed vehicle and you can only make things worse for yourself and your family by doing so.
According to gambling commision, new research shows almost half of people in Britain gamble. 48% of respondents have gambled in the past four weeks (a 3% increase on 2015), this figure drops to 33% when you exclude those that have only played the National Lottery
Let me tell you something. Gambling debts really suck.
What is Gambling Debt
Gambling debts fall into completely different debt categories. I’ll give you an example:
You have this girlfriend who you really really love, but one day you found out that she is cheating on you. Bad, isn’t it?
No, not really. This is just a “debt”
The worst – gambling debt is just about to come.
Imagine that you caught your partner having sex with a guy who he turned out to be your father – This is gambling debt!
Unfortunately, gambling debt is just as bad.
In 2008, at the age of 28, I ended up with almost £50k debt. I gambled all my money, my wife’s money, our savings, rent money and even food money. I got to the point where I thought there is no way out. A couple of months after my “coming out”, my wife finally decided to move out abroad and start living with her parents. I don’t even remember this moment very well. All I recall is that she took our 9 months old son with her. I hated myself so badly.
Now, things have changed.
I paid off all my gambling debt in under five years. I’m gambling free since and debt-free for about 4 years now. I created this website stop-gambling.co.uk when I started my recovery – it helped me a lot, but only now I realised the real purpose of this site. This is the first post in the series, “Pay off your gambling debt with me”. I will tell you exactly how I managed to pay off nearly £10,000 debt a year. I will show you how I earned this money, step by step with no bullshit, so you can do it too.
