Ur issues with Gamblin!

So sorry, u have issues resulting from ur gambling, must say I do sometimes play the markets and have lost money in the past and the only solution in dealing with all the problems and after effects that gambling brings lies deep within yourself and that thing is will power.

You really must be strong in the head and to get to this level you might need to a bit of reading on the subject. I cannot think top of my head, but there are some pretty good books out there that should help you with problems that stem from your gambling addiction.

Good luck
