I have been gambling since the age of 18 and have probably lost about 50K. But I have lost much more than just money. I've had to sell properties,have taken out dozens of loans/credit cards, sold off personal items and suffered from stress and depression. I am finally beginning to understand the complexities and reasoning associated with the compulsive gambler.

I haven't gambled for

604

days
