Hello everyone, you may know me as Taizong on Just-Dice. I'm a 24 year old university student from Richmond, British Columbia, Canada. I feel like a fool right now because I lost all my money over the past week by gambling, and I really need to just talk about this. Hopefully someone else won't make the same mistakes.
I didn't lose a ridiculous amount of money. In fact, I *only* lost 7.7 bitcoins, which would currently equate to about 6,000 dollars. But the problem is that as a full-time university student, this was 90% of my savings. And since student loans don't cover the full cost of my expenses, I don't have any money after this semester.
I was never a gambler. I've never gone to a casino. I've never played poker. Hell, I never even bought a lottery ticket. But for some reason when I saw a post about LiKaShing's run on Just-Dice.com on Reddit, I was immediately hooked. I created a plan for myself - I said that I would play carefully and control my bets. I would withdraw BTC after winning 50% of my initial deposit. Everything was going rather smoothly; although I went down a few times, I ended up hitting 9.5 bitcoins.
But then I couldn't control myself and thought that I could keep going, even in face of mathematical logic. I lost 1.5 bitcoins. Then I deposited two more. I lost those too. Then again the same. Until I saw all my money vanish and I realized the horror of what I had done. I had that horrible sinking feeling and was very angry at myself and everything around me. I didn't sleep and all I could think about during class for the past week was how much of a loser and moron I am. I just hate myself for throwing away my own hard-earned money.
The moral of this story is, DON'T GAMBLE WITH MONEY YOU CAN'T AFFORD TO LOSE. Gambling sounds like an “easy” way to increase your capital, but nothing in this world comes easy and free, unless you were born with a golden spoon in your mouth. Only gamble with the money you can afford to lose.
As for me, I feel like I learned a good life lesson. This was my fault and has nothing to do with Just-Dice. I never want to gamble again. I've borrowed some money to be able pay for my current semester tuition. After that, I don't know yet, but I think it'll work itself out – life always finds a way.
