    Chasing and going backwards

    Sat Aug 06, 2022 5:25 pm

    Here again same ole story racked up 6k on the credit card no savings no car but good job and a super i cant touch thank goodness. I hear everyone else's story out in the world , eg new car got a house going on holiday everybody living the dream and here i am battling and feel im always fighting an uphill battle with my head and work to get things done. I rent with my partner and one thing at least have a term deposit in nz. The casino lately has got me , get there feel important treated well and free drinks, win some lose some and stay long periods even taking a sick day off. Since this job ive been to the casino and played online betting horses sports, last job i was fine i guess an escape from the bs of work.

    I have a similar situation, I'm kind of escaping from the world of problems, but I still understand that nothing good will come of it. What to do in this situation? I feel like I'm just fooling myself.

    I was definitively using the casino as an escape from work and it’s not great, it’ll just compound the situation and hinder your growth as an individual and your work load increase due to time spent gambling. Ripple down effect will also affect your quality of work. It’s baddd news
    Yep casino will do that. Free drinks, meals upon points earned in a day, free monthly chip bonus.

    You need to be the bigger person if you want to make a change
