HI all, addicted gambler here. Like many spent way too much and have gotten myself into major debt and if that wasn't enough, I'll be chatting with the IRS soon.
I was doing ok (losing and winning) with the local gambling dens, but then the casino went in. "That's nice" I thought. But soon I was showing up there 1-2-3 times a week! Then I was "Furloughed" from work in August. Yep, 2-3 times a week I was up there, Luckily I could only cash advance 20% of my credit cards.
Then came Oct and hip surgery. In 6 weeks....Back to the casino.
On Jan 8th, was released to go back to work. Company then laid me off. I celebrated by going you know where. Then it happened. I had sent to the IRS an updated 1040X form. Plus my 1095 form. 2-3 months later I get a check for $3,992.78 I voided it right there and then sent it back. Whew!
Then 5-6 weeks later it showed again. $4,305.72 I was short from gambling so I put it in....In 2 weeks, I spent it all....Yes paid some debts...But I shouldn't have done this. I know I'll be paying it back and more. That's my lesson I hope stays with me from now on.
Easy money is anything BUT easy to repay.
I have a interview for a temp agency Monday. I am really hoping for a graveyard position (Pays the most) and that would allow me to slam bills. Well that all. Why I am here and why I'll stay.
Hello friends - been a while since I posted. No excuses, just busy with life and many other things and haven't had much time to post or read. Tomorrow will be one year since I've gambled. I wrote a letter and hope you all don't mind if I share:Hello, my name is Jason, and I’m a compulsive gambler.I’ve uttered these words at least once a week, sometimes more for the last year. Today, October...
Okay, I had a gambling/drinking dream. It was a quick, little dream. Drink in hand and headed for the machines, with the LOUDEST thought in my head, NO ONE NEEDS TO KNOW. The secret. Ugggggggggg This happened the night I went to a concert, Lenny Kravitz, with my husband. I had a Roy Roger’s, I never drink Coke, crazy! Hahahaha Good concert. I quit drinking almost a yr ago, gambling 19...
