I can't sleep thinking about it every day. I borrowed $500 from my credit card to play poker and lost. I can't afford it now. And interest rates will increase over time.
Should I take a break or stop playing poker for good?
You should stop playing poker immediately. Also I would recommend it to you and all in the same situation to look forward psychological aid.
This is not a joke, you said yourself you’re not sleeping because you probably had let your bills behind and now you have a debt and cannot pay either the bank or your personal bills, and of course we gotta take a subject like that seriously as we can.
If you play online poker
, explain the situation to the poker room and ask them to block you for a couple of months!!!
I’m not sure if you should only take a break or quit poker for the rest of your life. But look into yourself and be sincere, look for family, friends and professional help.
If you see you are really addicted to gambling
the best choice for you is to never play poker again.
We should invest only money that it doesn’t make any difference if we lose or we win.
I talked a lot about the movie “Rounders, 1998” and the bad example they provide, with the character using his tuition cash to play poker and losing everything in one single hand.
Look through professional help and if the time comes where you perceive you can afford to have a solid mindset, go back to the tables, but never in your life make this mistake again!
I would recommend for you at least 12 months without playing any gambling games, although I’m not a professional.
