I’m down bad and acknowledging it is the first step toward healing

I have a full-time job and I get paid comfortably. Because of it, I’m more than comfortable depositing over $100 almost every day *in a month* and constantly lose. I’ve won $1,600, $1,200, $1,400 and couple $500+ prizes. I blew them all in less than 24 hours. The fair argument is that I was learning the system of betting and how I might have been played. The problem is that every-time I lose, I immediately try to make up the loss by placing another bet and so often, I’d lose again.

I’m trying to create a good habit by betting small and withdrawing the big prize immediately. The other good habit I’m trying to create is giving myself at least a week break from gambling by locking my account and assuring myself I have plenty of time to play in the future.

I’m currently down nearly $6k and I know gambling is not the best place to scheme quick money. Has anyone been in a similar situation and how did you get hold of yourself? Again, I cannot stress how lucky I am to have a full-time job.

Edit: Wow! I appreciate the brutal honesty. I know I’ll be back … to have fun. Right now, I’m going to focus on making myself happy. Thanks everyone and gamble responsibly!
