I grew up in a rural part of Nigeria. Not until 2015 did I know about sports betting.
I started to gamble that same year after I saw ads of people winning big. Little did I know I've set out on a journey without a clue of where I'm going until I hit rock bottom.
To cut a long story short, I wasted all my savings, stole, lied and borrowed just to gamble. I've been arrested, beaten and jailed for being unable to payback money I borrowed to gamble.
I'm 23 now. July 2019 was a start of a new beginning. I told myself I won't gamble again. I've lost everything but my life. For the first time in five years I'm now living happily.
