Gambling cant get me down

You know what? For the last year I have needed a new computer chair badly.
After my gambling wobble over 2 months ago, I have been stuck in my overdraft. Getting charged £1 a day.

Today online I came across a computer chair. I get paid my disability benefits next week which as it stands would mean overdraft cleared (no more £1 a day bank charges) as long as I don't spend any money now whatsoever.

You know what the choice was in the end? It was... So what If I get charged the extra £10/£15 in bank charges for remaining overdrawn until the disability benefit payday after next week's. I have already had to pay over £60 of bank charges because of gambling and what did I have to show for it? Naff all.

This computer chair will last me many years, it will be comfortable, something I use daily and at a fraction of the cost of what a gambling session would take from me.
