Addiction... - Dont get swallowed by...THE BLOG!
Vlad 2.0...Coming soon!
From my hotornot profile: "I wait tables for money. I need the money to support my crippling internet bingo addiction."

I think it all started back in middle school. I was first getting interested in the internet. I tryed chatting. Not my thing. I tryed browsing porn, also not my thing. Then I hit paydirt, games.yahoo.com, games.excite.com, games.whatever frigin huge thing.com. Games! Games! Everywhere! That first night was magnificent! I kept winning, everything. Poker, Black jack, trivia, tetris. I went on a ride that lasted all night and didn't end until I collapsed on my bed at 6 that morning. From then on I was hooked.

The addiction doesnt come quickly. No. This one crawls at you like a wise scorpion. Waiting for its chance to sting. I stayed up every night and slept during the day. I became like a hawk. There wasnt a game I couldn't beat. Backgammon. Checkers. Wierd make people become vampires game. And then I came upon it.

Bingo. This game was unlike the others. No, this one was pure chance. And the first time I won, it was like nothing I had felt before. And the second time I won it was only like one other thing I had felt before which was winning that first time before that. And the third time I won was kinda like the second, but not really like the first. After that, my memory blurs. It became one coked up night after another. I stayed up drinking diet coke playing internet bingo.

Then came the pay sites. And what slowly starts out as 10 cents a game begins to add up. Especially when you have 13 windows of internet explorer open, playing 13 different cards for 13 different games, each costing 10 cents a piece. Thus it was more like a dollar thirty each game. And of course I played more than one game each night, so I spent way more than a dollar thirty a night. It was probably closer to like, 5 or 6 bucks a night. What doesnt help is I had to switch accountants mid-internet-bingo-addiction so the books dont add up. But thats not important. Whats important is that I got help. And you can get help too!

Now the only pay sites I go to are porn. God bless America.

Current Mood: healthy

which is the lesser of two evils? which addiction can you get rid of more easily? seems to me you should stick to porn, cause you can stop that hella easier... if you have someone to help you out. ^_^
