Gambled on the pokies mostly when I was aged 21 to 31 and I have nothing to show for. Hit rock bottom and girlfriend left, no debt but had no savings.
New partner when I was 31 to 40 years old, house paid off, no debt, no gambling. How? I pay all the bills when get paid from work and transfer the rest to the mortgage and live like I'm broke.
My partner works as well and does regular checkup on bank a/c. I have two beautiful young kids and a happy wife.
Don't want to be poor again.
