    Serious Question...Anyone In Debt Because Of Gambling?

    I use to be worse

    Right now only $700 , I owe a local bookie than busting out cc cards

    No pressure to pay though, he took $80 today

    In business debt isn't necessarily bad as a lot of it has to do with the cost of money balanced with your own liquidity.

    Microsoft had 100's of millions in cash and still carried debt.

    Went on a losing streak a few years ago and decided to borrow against the kids's stock and college positions and put all that money right back into the sports markets. Made my wife a bit nervous there, lol.

    Not only did I pay the money back, but I added to the positions significantly.

    Don't be afraid of debt, just use efficiently.

    Again, the usefuleness of debt is proportional to your liquidity and inversely proportional to the cost of the money.

    Bookie charging you points on the $700?

    i have been in credit card debt due to gambling. not proud of it. that was about 10 years ago or so. bad time. i had to declare bankruptcy because it was just too much with the interest and late fees to catch up. came back very strong and continuing that way.

    Never loan or borrow money from family or friends because this is a habit of a true gambling addict that needs help. Bet on what you can afford to lose.

    I've lost everything and I have nothing. 40 years old and in thousands and thousands of dollars of debt and the worst credit. Back against the wall with no hope.

    US has $12T debt, thanks to zionist's money printing machine - Federal reserve - that made all the JEWs billionaires/trillionairs while keeping regular American in debt.

    I never got in debt until I started playing with the local credit books recently. Before that it was always deposits on offshore websites.local books are all bad,recipe for disaster. Too easy to bet money that you don't have
