My struggle with gambling

.
I wanted to write a meaningful article about my addiction to gambling. Ive realised that...in the end you've lost more than what you have acquired financially speaking. My mother said gambling is a losers game. Last week i lost a total of £400. So I decided instead of punching the machine or beating myself about it; I walked away. And I have never looked back. I don't miss it, Id rather save my money and let my money accumulate and have integrity and self-respect. I am only 22 years old and i know gamblers are looked at with disdain. But I don't even buy scratch cards anymore. I will to never gamble again. It doesn't appeal to me anymore. Ultimately, I want to do something positive with my money; save it. I am entirely out off by the gambling experience and i am ironically happy i lost, but I have not lost; myself. I am still a whole person. Money doesn't define you, you define you.

To anyone that is struggling with gambling addictions there's gamblers autonomous (GA). It's very useful and please get out of the habit it is very terrible to get into, it ruins family's, homes, relationships, companionships: it ruins lives.

complicated @NyishaHv I'm no expert but In my humble opinion everyone out there is out there to make money. So when you see a gambling machine or place just remember nobody wins apart from the owners of that machine/place.
If the gamblers won then the owners will lose money and not make a profit so why would they allow anyone to win?
