The Life Story of a Gambling Addict!
And so, while planning for the next move, someone invited him for a break just to sip a little wine and spend some time for fun, as per his friend, he can think well without all of those stresses and start planning to fund the marketing strategy for the restaurant. He really did not understand why instead of going to the bar where they can have some fun, they proceeded to a brick-walled casino from which is getting more popular and celebrating its introductory stage.
He felt so very peculiar when he started to see all the people who are enjoying every corner of the building. Every machine everywhere seemed to be so inviting, all the tables around are full of laughter and excitements and every human being seemed to be happy and contented. What he left for his bank account is just enough for their necessity at home, paying for his additional promotions for the restaurant is actually the problem, he was so hesitant if he would pay attention to the invitations as the crew and staff of the arena are quite aggressive in convincing probable clients to play. In between peculiarity and excitement, he found himself taking the challenge in one of the slot machines which happened to be his favorite fictitious character.
At first, he is just watching the one who seated in front of the machine playing slot, then transferred to another machine to watch again until he was able to watch almost 10 machines before he decided to buy slot coins to play. All he wanted is to forget all the stress that accords with the restaurant and make a plan on how he could probably raise amount to fund what is needed to be done about the business. And impromptu, he thought that with his small amount on his pocket, by luck and luck and tremendous luck, he could raise and provide the amount he needed.
With his conviction to be lucky on that night, he really doesn’t understand if the management knew he was a first timer and eventually as he is enjoying the game, forgetting about the restaurant, forgetting about his objectives why he left home and take a break, even forgetting that he is only playing for fun and evade problems, he was not aware of the time during that night as the fun he is looking was found plus the opportunity to gain more funds is actually getting nearer.
Yes, his first attempt to play at the casino ends very well; he was able to bring home the amount more than ten times of the amount that he brought. By this, he was able to process all necessary things for the restaurant to get advertised. More than that, his savings was doubled and he was able to buy gifts for his wife and two kids. By this consequence who would thought of not going back to the casino?
Considering the fact that what really happened inside the casino was as exciting as his first step to manage his own restaurant. He actually started by watching other players playing slot machines, then betting himself penny beginning with a very small stake. Enjoying himself and experiencing triumph with the winnings consecutively made him increase his bets slowly but surely he continues to beat the machine as what he perceived. Every time he loses a turn or two, he would transfer machine and continue playing. The fun and the excitement seemed to be very never ending and so his winnings increased tremendously. There are also times that he also tried another game but cannot win because he still needs to study and analyze the rules and regulations of the games, like he was able to join a table of poker, though he already knew how to play the game, he has no idea on the tricks and strategies that may corresponds to the game, so he just loses. But the amount lost for the game is just very small part of the amount that he won in slot machine.
He never won the jackpot yet on the slot machines but with the flow of his games like winning big prizes for about four times or even five times consecutively then loses one turn then win again for six consecutive times is like winning the jackpot prize. Again, who could ever think of not going back to play in a casino if this would always be the scenario?
His first visit in a land based casino was a success, he’s got the luck and he used this luck not only to entertain himself but to take advantage of the objectives of going in to a break which ended up in this situation. He was so thankful to his friend who brought him on the venue and he even gave a particular amount to his friend as a sign of appreciation. He went home with a promise to himself that he would be back and play again all the games he played.
He is already home with a good news to his wife but all his mind and attention are still on the casino and he is floating still with the pictures and visuals of the slot machines that gave him the opportunity to end his problem with the restaurant. Though his wife was not convinced that this is a good sign for them to put up with the business, and gambling according to her is not the solution and would never be of help to bring solution to any problem whether it is emotional, practical or even financial problems. But it is now here and the solutions to their problems are right in front of them already and he believed that it would never happen if not because of the games he played in a casino. In short, he believed that gambling helped them solved their problems, for now.
His wife is not convinced about gambling as she herself had been victimized before by the addiction of such kind. She forced her husband to promise her not to be back to the casino because she believed and explained to her husband that it is only luck that gave him the chance to bring home triumph and luck would not always be on his side.
This promise seemed to be just a joke for him because although he released his pledge to his wife not to play again in a casino, his thinking and all his mind was already set for another schedule on when he would come back to the place where he really enjoyed and a plus factor on how he was helped to settle his problem. And for the very first time in the history of their marriage, he lied. He broke a promise and did not mind how his wife would be hurt by his nasty decisions. It happened already; he just got back to the casino and play and play and play. This time, he is very unfortunate because he did not win a single penny; he lost an amount with a portion on his payment for the advertising set to promote his restaurant. He went home that day with a hard feelings, aside from being very unlucky and wasting a lot of money, he can accept the fact that he lied to his wife just to face this unfortunate destiny. But again, he thought that it is because of the truth that this was his second visit to the casino, which is why luck did not favor him.
And so, he tried again with another day on the same venue of course without his wife knowing. But again, he lost another chance of spending his money on the right track instead of wasting it in gambling. He also had started to search for some casinos to try on as he really misses the excitement and fun during his first unintentional visit to the casino. He almost had visited every casinos in town and most of the time, he is spending amounts bigger that his earnings.
And this seemed not enough for him, after a day in a brick-walled casino; he also is registered to many online casinos that he would play with before the end of the day, usually before he go to bed. His wife already noticed the changes on her husband’s attitude, he has no longer time with them, he cannot have time for family bonding, though this is just fine with his wife and kids as they thought that this is just because of the business and pressures that the head of the family are encountering on their business. But it is not only the family that is affected, as more misunderstandings occur, between him and his wife, between him and his two kids, not only with the business, his relationships with his employees are getting ugly and bad, enough reason for the business to deteriorates its quality when it comes to service and sales. “Nothing” was always the word that he would answer to anyone who asked him what would be the problem; he cannot confess to them what is the problem even to his own family. He just always back out and walk away every time there is someone who confronts him. His wife suspects he has another relationship that her husband is cheating on her because she thought that this could only be the reason why she cannot received any response from her husband. She tried everything for her husband to tell her what could be the problem so she could help him but nope, no response at all.
Until the restaurant business was stopped, the venue was sold, but the money also disappeared, (of course because of gambling) without his wife’s knowledge. Because of pity to herself and to her kids, and for the reason that she can no longer stand with her husband, he was left by his family all alone. He cannot blame his wife for leaving him as up to now; his wife still has zero knowledge on what his problem is. Even his own family, his parents and siblings who happened to manage catering services also did not allow him to join and take charge of the business. He is all alone now.
But despite of all the bad things that are happening to him, it seems that all of those are just nothing for him, all he cares now is how he could play his favorite games on the casino whether it is online or live. He begun to borrow money from the banks, from any loan enterprise that would allow him borrow money, from his friends, his family’s friends and to some of his new acquaintance. Slowly and one by one, he started to sell his belongings, his cars; his jewelries, his gadgets like laptops and cell phones and even his branded clothing are sold.
And all of these are just because he wanted to try his luck again and get back all what he lost, but every time he would run after his loses, he lost more. And he has nothing left now, he is alone without anything. He started asking himself, why are this happening to him? What he had done to himself, but again the hunger for gambling is still there, every time he would have small amount on his pocket, he would run to his favorite casino and spend everything there in playing his favorite games. His health is also deteriorating; his body now is not as lively and strong as before and he can no longer work an ordinary job. He is actually suffering from a tremendous diabetic problem; his feet both on left and right side are swallowing.
His sense of sight is getting blurred and blinded slowly. He was actually requested by his siblings to come home and stay with them upon knowing his situations, but with conditions, he could not have any single money on his pocket, all the things he needed would be bought for him by them and not himself. He cannot also get out of the house without anyone from them accompanying him. And most especially, the best condition of them all is he would be treated to a rehabilitation center and attend some symposiums that would help him change himself for the better.
He is living now from a miserable life with his friend because until now, he is not ready to face the challenge that he would encounter if he would accept the offer of one of his brother. And he doesn’t understand because he seemed contented now with his situation. He strongly believed that he could rehabilitate himself and change his life for the better even very slowly without the help of any professionals.
He is attending prayer meetings, he made himself busy with church activities and he always talk to his good friends for some advice and learning. He shared his story to help others realize what could be the difference between good, bad and worst things to do. He wanted us to be warned if we are thinking that gambling would be of help to escape miseries and problems, or if we already are lying to our love ones because of gambling.
These are just signs that we already encounter problems with gambling. If we are already setting aside necessary and basic expenses just to use the money for gambling or if we lost our self dignity in borrowing money to others just to gamble or if we just simply lost our appetite to work because of gambling, this could be a serious problem already and we need to seek help from others who are willing to listen and give us advice regarding the matter. Worst if we feel anxiety, so much depression and even thinking of finishing our own lives after spending days and a lot of hours gambling but not thinking of stopping to gamble, would be the greatest and most serious problem that needed to be treated as soon as possible.
