I am not necessarily addicted to substances, I occasionally smoke marijuana, although I have nothing bad to say about that compared to my real addiction. I started work, and with my compulsive behavior I found a casino nearby. I ended up taking out 2,000USD in payday loans, creating a gigantic mess. Then I proceeded to gamble it all away at the casino, after which I spent my next check trying to win the money back to pay off my debts. As of now, I have no money and I am 1200 dollars in debt. As some of you may know the payday loans are a huge trap with ridiculous interest. I hate what I did, but I just couldn't stop. Has anyone ever gotten themselves into a mess like this? or do you know how someone got out of the mess?
