        At first it was an accident.

        Max Bet, over there on the right.

        Max Bet on a $5 machine. 

        The big button over there on the right.

        It’s says max bet.

        But that’s a lie.

        It’s a cover up because what it really should say is:

        soul, family, job, reputation, retirement account, sanity, future

        Don’t press that button.

        It’s a lie.

        Seems you could win your jackpot more quickly,

        But what you’re really risking is  your life.

        Your risking your life to win a jackpot.

        But that’s a lie too.

        There is no jackpot waiting for you.

        All you get for all you’ve risked is …

        more time to lose more of the best years of your life.

        More time wasting away in front of a machine.

        Sorry, this isn’t a poem and it’s not impressive writing, but it is TRUE.

                This is poetic because it’s true. So many times I’ve bit for the max bet to lose everything so fast. It’s never really about the money. I look back and I’m so tired of running the rat wheel trying to juggle it all. Gambling has truly stolen my soul, my time, my resources and hurt my family and me. I’m so thankful to find this site. I’m at rock bottom
