Hi all, Spent about 5 hours playing (really shouldn't be called playing ... more like obp Oppressive Button Pushing ! - yes I enjoyed it but was losing ... in the end the machines got all my allowance - and an extra $100 I had set aside - and sneakily included in my budget...
.... BUT .... on my last push of that button, the jackpot siren went off and I had won the jackpot at $950... phew that easily covered my previous losses.
I went to the bank and deposited $850
What did you say? where is the extra $100? no points for guessing.
So glad I have to wait another week before I can play again because I know that without that local ban I would be doing alot more button pushing and no doubt have lost it all which I don't want to do.
which raises the question "should I extend the ban?"
food for thought

HiI! im new in here and at this point of my life. i am totally lost and dunno what to do😭😭😭 i love my husband and my family. i ruined our family by spending all our savings and on top of that i loan about 90,000$ and i just lost it all in the casino😭😭😭 i don't know what to do so i went to gambling foundation asked for help and done my forst session yesterday. im currently 37 weeks pregnant and i swear to god i am running out of reason to live. i know it's selfish but thats how i fee right now. my husband had enough he told me that the only reason hes still with me is cause im about to give birth. he supported me before even i did it for 3X😭 but now he made up his mind he said he will stay with me till 6mos till babys is strong enough he will leave. i asked help too late. i already lost his love. he told me last night when i taljed to him he said that mum can u do me a
favour? he said can u let me go?? i swear this breaks my heart so much that i just realized where my addiction leads me into. i refused and begged for him to stay i said dad can u hold me
one more time and ill promise i will stop i now know how much this cost me. and i will do everything to regain them. i said with the debts i cant do anything i can't bring them
back we
can file bancruptcy if we have no
choice. but he said that if he will give me achance again i will do it again. so i really lost him. but he also said that im staying for 6mos and who
knows what gonna happen. but now we sleeps in different rooms now. he said je cant even stare or look at me he said he can't find love anymore all he find is anger. and he said that if not for baby im careying hes long time
gone.

Hi lost mum.

Your message is sad.

I hope you find the strength to stop gambling. I think the only way forward is to ban yourself from all venues. Are you prepared to do this?

I haven’t.

I know all the excuses. I know the thrill and the depression of gambling snd I still do it.
I have banned myself from local venues which is great - I have stopped wondering what’s going on inside them snd is the jackpot close to going off. But I haven’t banned myself from venues further away - but if I spend too much I will. I think it’s the only way. If you can’t go in you can’t lose.

Yes, It is a good idea to think about a total ban
