Thanks for your story Carlo and it’s great to hear that you stopped for a while. Sounds like you’re very much on the right track. I would advise against going to an arcade for fun, but of course you know yourself best. However, gambling addiction is a huge adversary to beat permanently (I speak from experience). And mood and mental toughness often vary in strength and level. Sometimes you can feel super good and disciplined for a year, incredibly resilient and not gambling is almost that easy
Carlo, super proud of you! Very similar story to my own story, by the way, how it all starts and how you keep getting money and looking for more and more gambling halls, because you have a ban yourself. All the locations you talk about are also known to me Even have to laugh at your story about the return journey from Knokke heist. Have also experienced those moments and even slept on a bench in Eindhoven and Breda. How far can you go haha.
