Hello all,
Haven't posted in awhile. I have been feeling pretty low for some time now. My credit card debt is astronomical thanks to my abuse. I have used cash advances to buy scratch off (instant)lottery tickets.I had my debt down to about $25,000 and it is now close to $50,000. I hate to write that number.This is all within 2 years time. I even borrow money from my children to gamble. I am short $100 for a payment this week. WHY!! Because I gambled it away. How stupid. I am going to try and quit this additive habit but it is so hard.
