    Long story short, i'm 22 and in massive debt, (not compared to some people i have seen with a gambling problem.. from other forums)

    I thought 4500 was a lot of debt until I met some of them.. anyways.

    I gamble everything away, I can't stop and i don't know why, i have tried everything, recenetly closed down every single account i have on every single website, so gambling is legit impossible, but it doesn't help that i'm depressed and bored and always end back there, i work some crappy part time minimum wage job, make around 300-400 a week, the thought alone of it taking over 10 weeks to pay back makes me want to try to win it back gambling even more.

    Constant thought of being a failure, people in my year are already graduated from college making good money and my mental problems and such keep keeping me from doing anything

    This all being said, I don't care if you only make 10 dollars a month, i just want a legit way to make money, i don't care how long it takes, it's more so of something i can do on my days off to keep busy, so my mind stays off gambling, if any of this makes sense.


    It just sucks because i'l make so little from work, yet i was able to blow 500$$ each bet easily when i was gambling. Yesterday was hopefully my last day tyhough.

    Or even better options to put my money, i'm not tempted in gambling if i invest it into things that have a slight chance of growing, thing's like that, although i know i should get out of this overdraft debt first.

    What are your skills? Connect with people and offer to proofread, install WordPress themes, or anything minor that can help you build up a momentum of discipline that works towards keeping busy. Profit can come later when you are proven to be trustworthy and reliable in your tasks.

    I think before trying to make extra money you should try and get some help to get your habit under control. See a doctor regarding your depression and see someone about your gambling addiction (I think doctors can help with this - certainly in the UK they can I believe, or point you in the right direction at least.)

    At the end of the day if you can't control your habit then all extra money in your pocket will do is feed the addiction, which won't be healthy.

    Thank you! I joined like the only 5 trustworthy sportsbetting websites, and i self excluded on all of them, so there's no chance of me gambling again, i self excluded for over 3 years (and most betting websites use the same platform) so it excluded me from them all

    Investments on any business or niche is like gambling, IM is no exception. If you don't have discipline it is most likely you will keep failing regardless of the project.
    I don't think gambling is a problem if you know what you're doing, many people make a decente living out of it.

    On sports, it's said that under 4 percent will ever make profit on it, given the sportbook's always have the edge on the odds!

    Yo all i can say is stop the fuck with gambling.

    I also had issues for about 3 years gambling including going 3/5 days a week to a casino and if not mostly i would gamble online.

    Was clean for a long while and started fucking up a few weeks ago.

    Few days ago was my last one. I know how you feel. Once i'm depressed or stressed out i will go to the casino because somehow with gambling i get this kind of "gambling feeling" you prob know what i mean. Thing is every time i make some good money i am the best in fucking it up again at the casino or at any place really. For me it's all about the spending at any place.

    Just so you know, internet marketing projects are the best replacement! You can keep on gambling but for a better cause :)! Each money you blast on internet marketing will either bring you money or learns you a great lesson. IMO you will never waste a penny on IM since you will always get something back money or experience.

    One advice, don't gamble to much. I'm still that kind of gamble dude even in internet marketing. For example i buy my products first before i would even have a domain for a webshop.

    What i'm saying is go waste all your time in internet marketing and where needed spend parts of your cash to it but don't go fully loco ;). Learn and continue. Make it your life goal if this kind of stuff interests you.

    Gambling is just like smoking, You promise yourself everyday that you will quit but at the end of the day you're smoking like a chimney.
    There are alot of threads here, Good luck mate :)

    More money is not going to fix your problem. You must first sort out your addiction before you think about making more money. There are plenty of people on 6 figure incomes with gambling problems much bigger than yours (more money = more debt).

    Am trying, not sure who to really tell, it sucks becuase people think i have lots of money from working instead of going to school..


    the thought of working the last 5 years living with my parents and having no money, actually negative money always brings me back to gambling, i should have like 50,000 at least by now.

    i am doing gamblers anonymous though, starting next week, going to start there


    it's not so much wanting to make money as it is i want something to do in my spare time, i get so bored.
