This is my first and last post at this forum:

If you want to quit gambling you have to replace it with something. I can't do it cold turkey, or trying to replace it with something you think is boring. You like money, to earn money and numbers... statistics etc?
I started to invest a few bucks in stocks and crypto, and mining crypto... and I get my "kick" checking the price of the stock/crypto and to use time searching around for information. Yes, it can be time consuming, but it is way more healthier.
I do NOT daytrade, but I do longterm holding of stocks/crypto.
Some will say that this also is gambling, and I can agree to a certain point... but it is really difficult to lose much money when just doing regular holding.

Reddit has been great too.

I have invested a total of €1500 for the past 2 months, and I am up €650. I have not gambled at a casino for 2 months, and I have litteraly gambled every single day for the past 15 years.
I get my paycheck tomorrow, and instead of gambling it away I will deposit what I can afford (with bank transfer, that takes 2-3 days) to my broker. I am excitied to search for a good stock/crypto to put the money into.

I am feeling very good. My sleep is better, and I have started excercising again.

PS! Gambling allmost ruined my life.

Take care everybody and good luck with whatever you feel like doing!

Congrats guys but don't forget crypto is still a huge gamble, you can lose 75% of your portfolio in an hour. Try and dump some profits into safer investments like ETF's as well. And buy a Ledger to secure your coins, then give it to a very trusted partner to prevent gambling away all your coins one drunken evening.

I have looked at ETFs, have a ledger and I don't drink, pretty much good. :)

congrats- I mainly use the sportsbook, but am going to give up on the casino part altogether very soon, as I am seeing it just drain any money I have won. I mean the slots used to be fun entertaining ..play a fair share for an hour, but now its just become a money pit, spend 50 on a slot its gone in no time betting minimal stakes..lol casino's greed will be there undoing

I once got 50 bitcoins for a payment from a client, I sold it for around $15,000 because I did not believe it enough.

it would been 3 million dollar if i just kept it, but the funds had to be used for some projects but yeah, it would be sweet
I once got 51 bitcoins from a client and just kept them and now I am really really rich.

yeah I finally had enough of the current "casino experience" I closed my account at Unibet. I still have my sports account at another book. Tired of just having the vampire experience- its on me really so no crocodile tears- spending too much time and money on fixed Bingo(sorry but it is fixed) and slots that max out at 120x on features that take weeks to hit lol...like I said on me. Anyway nice forum I enjoyed my time here and will certainly pop in from time to time. everyone much look and be well:)

I sincerely wish everyone who made one of these "well I've been gambling uncontrollably for years but it's no fun anymore so I'm out of here, goodbye forever!" posts actually stuck to their word.
