My advice:

Can you try to avoid stepping into gambling house or visiting gambling sites for about 5 years. Concentrate on your academic activities and review your life afterwards.

I know it will be difficult but if you could do it with a succeas rate of 95%. Then you have broken away and also mastering the art of discipline.

Please try and read to the end.
I am a young guy early twenties. I
have been playing virtual since 2014.
I was never this useless and
unpurposeful.
My life changed when i entered university.
It all started in 2014 when i walked
into a nairabet close to my school and
saw people playing virtual. I decided
to play, as i remember i won that
period. I never knew the day i started was the
day i gave the devil the key to my life. In 2014, i spent my school fees on
virtual, lost everything. Sold my
phones, my feeding money and
everything. All went to virtual. So i was not able to continue my
education, though i remained in
school not letting my parents know till
this year. Dear reader, from 2014 to date have
been the worst years of my life. I stole
to play virtual, sold my properties, my
clothes, shoes. I became an addict. Even not being a
formal student, i still collected money from my parents, school fees
and allowance. Everything ends up in
virtual house. I could not even buy good clothes.

Addiction has eaten deep globally, feel free to mail Classifiedaddicted@gmail.com for a guide if you know you need help, all cases are treated with confidentiality.

seriously bro. You think i am joking. Did i beg you for money. All i need are the recovery processes to get my life back. I am frustrated. Thank you for your understanding
firstly you have taken a good step to acknowledge you have a problem, next that same conviction needs to always remind you subconsiosly that virtual is bad for you.

If you can find a way to go back to sch( a new sch and environment) even if its college of edu, try to get busy as much as you can with a new hobby becos gambling has become your passion and hubby.

In the build up don't allow so much money pass through you and try to go to church more and meet people who are making efforts to progress.

Forget your old friends, just build a new environment and ideology.

If you need more I can continue

Get a job. U need Jesus but that is not the ultimate solution. Addiction to gambling is just like masturbation , u decide to o quit but u find yourself going back to it and in Ur cas it very simple not to b an addict since u need a shop to play the virtual. Now check yourself u decide u want to stoo, but when u are idle u go back to playing virtual as they say "an idle man is the devil's workshop" So get a job or something u find passion for. It might b learning how to play a musical instrument, learning how to code or any passion u Ave, so that during u leisure time u re practicing those new hobby so that u can be better in them

This statement here explains why you are addicted. You are chasing your losses and will keep losing. Remember, the house always wins and you can never recover your losses. Never!!! This is what keeps you trapped in the cycle of gambling. Write off the losses...forget it

Well, i took last jamb, i passed very
well to the joy of everybody. They thought i was back to being
normal but secretly i was still playing
virtual. Virtual has eaten deep in my blood. All the money i managed to save
before the jamb period while at home
still ended up in virtual. I want to stop but i cant. Fast forward everything to today the
7th of july. I took the money for my
post utme form to play virtual. My heartbeat was felt by the person
close to me when i lost the last kobo i
came with. Till now i have not
stopped thinking, nobody knows. now
i am thinking how to get the money
back. I am a dead man alive. Gambling has eaten deep into my
soul. i am finished. I AM TIRED AND FRUSTRATED,
SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP ME. I
WANT TO STOP. I WANT TO HAVE MY LIFE BACK
TOGETHER. PLEASE HELP ME IF
YOU HAVE HAD SIMILAR
EXPERIENCE. I AM DYING SLOWLY. I NEED
HELP. TODAY I HAVE PUT A
STOP TO IT. GOD HELP ME.
PLEASE
HOW CAN I QUIT FOREVER
You are addicted already. And the possible measure to take at this point is to find something to replace your gambling. Find a skill online,practice, read books on how to manage money too, and lastly get yourself close to God too.

It is Only Jesus that can help you.You cannot stop it by your power if I tell you my own bet9ja story it is even worse than your own, I am composing a book full of my stories I have vowed to fight bet9ja with my blood

Easiest and fastiest way to stop this madness


Place a curse on it


Trust MeV you ll stop

The moment you remember that you have already place a curse on your return to gambling, you ll begin to ignore the thought of it

Even though I don't do gambling, I discovered from your submission that you put yourself in this situation. Why because you are too greedy! I know some habitual gamblers that will never use more than #100, #200 to to play,wisdom they said is profitable to direct. Your solution begins by telling your parents the truth in other to get life back on track. But before then you need extra ordinary strength to help your ordinary strength which you earned by giving your life to Jesus Christ. He will rehabilitate you. But I know the devil will not want you to toll that lane,the more reason you need to surmmon courage. I didn't see you a gambler,I see you as someone who carries great grace.

LexngtonSteele:
Gambling and most other forms of addiction are often self-inflicted.

Don't even start otherwise it's a downward spiral.

I know i have bad self-control so i don't even indulge / taste.

Wish you the best in recovering the pieces of your life

Sharp guy.

People with "Addictive Streak" gene or "Dependency" tendencies who know their limits and are wise it disciplined about it often appear the strongest.

He would be wise to admit to himself that 'if given the chance, gambling go kill am', knowing deep down now that whatever Superman he is supposed to be in life, gambling is his kryptonite will help him dancer away from the edge.

He's lucky. What about us that chicks are our kryptonite nko? Do we walk around beaches blindfolded? Does betshop chase you like chicks do?

He's problems are simple, he just needs to realize himself and get a whole new set of life stimulants, catalysts & dreams to motivate him like godliness, therapy, mentoring & monitoring (accountability), skill acquisition, strong support groups, relationship with 'hard target' kinda high-achieving females etc

Go easy on the sanctimonious talk. Gambling is one of those addictions you hope you do not stumble into. Alot of Nigerians are being snared. It's the same way they are snared by mmm etal. The difference in this case is that the govt has still not intervened.

The phrase used to describe gambling is 'the house always wins'. Even if you hammer small today, you wil lose it after.

I saw a frightening ad where a couple were planning to buy stuff from proceeds of gambling money. Truly frightening, as people may actually be dumb enough to believe betnja is in the business of dashing people money

In saner climes you can't even be advertising gambling on National TV . Here anything goes.

I can say for a fact 100% from the little computing experience that I have that those virtual games are rigged. So you can never ever make profit out of it. It is certain. Serious research has been done by all these virtual betting companies and the algorithms are designed in a way that the payout is never ever to the detriment of the company. Most use Russian/Vietnamese softwares and we all know what shithole those countries are when it comes to cheating. More reasons why they need to be banned by the government.

what you need is motivation, and no one in nairaland is going to give it to you,, your case is very simple, I know of somebody with this same problem and others with related problems like addiction to smoking and other very bad habits and my advice is always the same motivation...........if your life depends on whatever and you don't really want to die..........You will know what to do. may the Grace of GOD to do what you need to do be on you

You should kill yourself because you are hurting the people around you. I'm sure your parents haven't done anything to deserve the kind of pain you are causing them. Think about it this way, by killing yourself - even though your parents will feel pain at your demise - you are actually saving them from years of pain and agony watching their own son wither away from what you call 'virtual' ( I don't even know what that means) I don't want you to think I'm being harsh on you but for once, put your parents needs first and not yours, you ungrateful bastard.

oh virtual have almost wrecked lives but if you quit you will bounce back.

I remember 2 Yoruba corper friends who came to serve in the state I reside, they played virtual and broke house records and even their own records of highest amounts ever won.

fast forward to a month later, they started working in a bet9ja shop, I never knew a bet9ja shop was a possible PPA and in first week they lost 85k to virtual they were playing even while working... they kept breaking their debt records every week, their allawee was the bet9jas owners own for many months, I fed these corpers for months while they struggled to pay their debts, they even had to call money from their parents back home they never left with a single dime, no savings from allawee nothing, they passed out broke in fact some debts had to be swept under the carpet.

that virtiual we call it ritual back then... So happy we all living better lives now without virtual. we still tease ourselves about our stupidity back then.

Good day my brother,

Its never too late for you to start afresh, but to be sincere you bleeped up big time!! am not blaming you now for playing virtual but I blame you for not going for classes...

My story::.... I used to be a virtual addict from 2013 when I was in 2nd year first semester.. every day I sleep in virtual spent all my school fees from that level. till final year, but I never for one day missed any of my exam instead I put the expense on my parents head, when ever they send money to me I used it for sorting of courses. while my feeding money and my lodge rent and school fees go for gambling..
immediately I graduated I went direct to my parents and pleaded with them, I told them the truth of every thing..at first they disowned me but later accepted me.. though the money was much to pay but they gave me all.
at first I intended using it for gambling but I seized the passion for it..


went to school and paid every thing and late payment...believe me my name came e out for service and I made 2.1 in the university...not because I was very intelligent but because I was wise enough to see that my exams are going perfectly and my project was sorted to...

summary: you were not they only person addicted to this which is bad!! but your mistake was to take your education for granted!!. you should not have stopped going for your classes and exam..is better you owe the school and your record is good so that once money enter you go for your certificate....

take heart is never too late!!
