Is your gambling a secret or are you proud and loud?

Recommended Posts

I myself kept my gambling quiet for years. No one in my family gambles and the attitude associated with gambling and those who perform it is cloudy with a chance of being ostracized to say the least. But then when debts mounted and mental health declined i did the smartest thing i could think of....borrowing large sums of money and doubling down! I know what your thinking...wow Hudost2 you have courage of a lion and the strength of a champion. But sadly your misguided by my charismatic ways and should not think so highly of such a risky move.

Though in this case the tables were in my favor! I was able to triple my loan. Pay my debt. And even create a nest egg that later hatched and paid the bills of casino owners. They were very appreciative and even comped me a free meal at there 5 star buffet. I can still smell the salmon and tapioca now...But thats how i came out of the gambling closet you could say. Which also happens to be the only closet ive ever found myself in. Not to say there's anything wrong with the gay group...just not a group i would want to conga with.

It felt good to let free the gambling demon whos exorcism by my parents was short fused. They live with the burden of a gambling son understandingly and lovingly. Though casino chaperons they still refuse to be.

well, only few of my friends know about my bad atitude, i dont tell my family about it, if i ever did they will start talking trying ti advice me to not gamble, so yeah i keep it as a secret, i prefer to focus on my games rether than telling them about it so they will change my mind and ruin the mood of gambling, i think about telling them at the right time when i quit gambling, but not now, maybe soon.

I would say I am somewhere in the middle.  Most of my family knows I gamble, as they are actually the ones that introduced me to it when I was young.  I don't go around making sure everyone knows, but I am not ashamed to talk about it either...

I admit that you have a true gambling soul, you have the courage to owe a great debt just to gamble. I'm sure you dare to take that decision because you have calculated everything and you are sure that you did nothing wrong for it.

Well, my family knows that I'm gambling but they think it's just an entertainment. And I guess they don't realize how much time I spend gambling as I have always work to do on my computer so most of the times they think i'm working on something important.

no i dont keep it a secret because gambling is not a bad thing  . im not afraid to tell it to my family or to my friends that im playing a gambling no mater what is the outcome of my game ( win or loose )   . they can say what they want or they say that they can discourage me because they think gambling is bad but gambling is not  really bad to the person that has a self control  ( like me )     . though there are still people that hide gambling because it might be illegal on thier place and they dont want to get reported by the people around them

gambling is a personal thing in my view .. therefore, I play gambling in solitude without anyone knowing it in my family or in my daily relationships ...
if there are, then they are my friends who are one profession with me ... both gambling lovers ... both of them have tasted the sweet bitter gambling table.

on the other factor ... I hide the gambling that I do from my family and my relatives, is because I have felt the pain of swallowing defeat and have to make a loan to replace it ... so I took the initiative not until my family experienced it. in gambling ... because if that happens, then I will never forgive myself

Gambling never be thing we proud unless we make some huge profit.

Person whose main earning from job, business is 200-500$ p.m. and if he make 1000-2000$ p.m. from gambling every month for continue 10-12 months. 
then in such case he can proud.

but still we need to thing how long he will make profit.
Gambling never give u continue winning streak for more like 1 year.

In my country, gambling is illegal, and my family has always had negative thoughts about gambling. Therefore, I often secretly and only chat with friends on this forum or on telegram where you find friends with similar interests in gambling.
