The money you needed for that credit card payment is gone. Now you're looking at further debt you can't afford.
And there's nothing fun about that.
Even close mates can lose patience when you have to borrow money, or use lies and excuses
to cover your gambling debts. Hard to have fun with no friends.
You know you're too far down the road with gambling when you don't even have a car. And relying on public transport isn't much fun.
