"When I was younger, I loved to go to the Spring Carnival and put a few dollars on the horses with the boys. But I learned quickly that you lose a lot more than you win!"
Real storiesSee full listing of stories
I finally admit I have a problem. I’ve been gambling on virtual football for 2 years. Never really had much luck and was always down in profit every week.
Gambling is the worst thing I have ever done and I'm still doing it. I'm now 42 and I've been gambling for the last 10 years.
I've finally accepted I have a problem... I've gone through most of my savings in two weeks and no idea why.
