Hi everyone! Today, I am going to write about gambling. I've encountered a lot of people who like gambling, and some who live in places where it is illegal and want it to be legalized. When I was around 13 years old, I started gambling on sports after I saw one of my relatives betting on a cricket match. He was in fact a businessman and became addicted to gambling when he was in his twenties. Whenever I went to his shop, he always told me about how much he won and lost. So, gradually I became interested and started to bet from 2 or 3 US dollars and ended up with more than 100 US dollars. I won and lost many times since they were part of the game and at that time I didn't care about a such a small amount of money. One day, I had lost all my money whatever I had and I was completely to the bottom dollars. One of the gamblers used to call me after I borrowed (here we would say "loaned") him 100 US dollars. Suddenly I had to leave the countryside and accompanied my uncle in the business since he was alone. After a few months when I returned to the countryside, the gambler came to my house and although I was out of the home, he asked my father with a furious face about those 100 dollars. I had to come home and confess to all my family members what I had done. Although it was a hard time, I had to let aware everyone since I had no any other option. My father returned all his dollars and since then I hate to gamble. Many people think that, people exploit gambling but I strongly believe that, gambling exploits people. I have seen here many people who have lost their businesses and houses due to gambling (addiction). I would say, gambling is a vice industry built on deception and fed by intentional exploitation of human weakness for the sole purpose of monetary gain (just like drugs, legal and otherwise...). Once people are addicted, it's quite hard to stop. People have lost houses, cars, and been left out on the street after becoming addicted. I know one person who had a shop of gold and was earning lots of money but at some point, he too had became addicted to gambling. So, one day, he lost his money much more than his liquidity and assets. People who gave him money for gold did not get in return, and because he was unable to pay his debts he fled the country without telling the customers. Well that is all. Have a nice day and see you with another notebook entry. Take care.
