Need a hug?

    Been getting trounced lately? Questioning whether you're still in control? This is the thread for getting a hug and maybe some perspective.

    No judgement, no advice to cut back on your gambling. Just hugs, sympathy and sob stories.

    I'll start; about 9 months ago I was on the best roll of my life- winning thousands each week, tens of thousands each month. Then my wife got pregnant.

    I thought: "well, it's time to be responsible... One last hurrah and then we're done with this"

    So I deposited $2k, which is a huge deposit for me, and said "this is it, bet big and lose or win but we're done either way" and it vanished as if by magic, must've been about 15% RTP on that session.

    So I tried another $2k.. and another.. and another.

    Before I knew it, within probably 3-4 hours I'd lost the last 3-4 months winnings and then as much again.

    "Well" thought I "that's certainly as clear a sign as you'll get that it's time to give this nonsense the arse" besides- you've got a baby coming. Time to be responsible.

    Went a month without a deposit which was the longest I've gone in 18 years and then thought; perhaps karma will allow me to recoup some losses.. let's just try $100.. $150.. $270.. $5000.

    Well for the past 8 months I have had THE WORST luck of my illustrious gambling career. Just comically bad, so much so I can't even get angry because I know exactly what will happen when I finally trigger that feature: <10x ... Hell a 10x feature almost looks good nowadays.

    Since the big losses I haven't been betting that big (thank God) but every few days I'll just check in to make sure my luck is still rooted and boy oh boy is it confirmed in spades every time; deposit $200 - watch it vanish in 30 minutes at $1 a spin, rinse, repeat.

    So I believe the universe is telling me that it's time to pack it in for a bit, there hasn't been a glimmer of hope and every time I play just confirms it; time for a break.

    Maybe for good.

    Hope you guys are doing better, but at the same time- when you're getting your arse handed to you this methodically it makes it a lot less daunting to stop. Like there's just no chance anymore.

    Need a hug?: images.jpg,Aug 14, 2018

    It occurred to me as I was looking in the mirror the other day that 40 is just a little over a year away, There's more hair on my *redacted* than on my head, and there's a grey streak in my beard that I swear wasn't there last week... and I'm still wondering when the whole "being an adult" thing is supposed to kick in.

    Yup, control starts with oneself, best thing I did was follow through with my actions and stop the daily slot beatings, in hope of chasing those wins the slots owed me *cough* Bonanza *cough*

    Everyone has different pain thresholds but there comes a point where a bit of a 'reality check' comes into play, because I fail to see how donating money to casinos is tantamount to fun, it's not even gambling anymore, more watching crap spin animations for half an hour before busting :eek2:

    So if unconvinced all is rosy in the garden, best thing to do is get some perspective back, I have. So I don't need a hug but I'll have that medal :cool:

    On the bright side, you only think you know what broke is.. once the kid comes along they'll break you in ways you didn't even know you were originally whole ;-)

    So... bright side...?

    You were winning thousands each week, tens of thousands each month over 9 months. I find that hard to believe im afraid.

    Then read again because I don't think he said how long he had been winning, just that the last 8 months he had been losing.

    I need a hug. I miss my daughter so so much. This is the longest I've gone without talking to her. I haven't seen her since March. All I know is that she is living on the streets and off the grid. So much can change in a year. Not a week goes by that I dont look for her or cry a few tears. :(

    Sorry to hear that. I thought everything was fine again but obviously not. I know it's tough but take care of yourself. You're important too.
    Big hug from me:)

    Oh thanks.:oops:. Usual stress from work which started with another awesome trip to work where I got a stone/rock into my windshield on the highway then extreme stress at home this evening.

    I was going to make a comment about you can make me into your daughter as I thought she was back at school or away for a job but it sounds like a serious situation.:(:oops:

    Sadly it is. But this actually helped. Hugs are always needed, even if they are virtual, and it put me in a happy mood :)

    Putting headphones on and cranking some good music, always helps with stress too.
