After a $600k divorce, I’m incredibly debt averse. Our house is nothing to write home about but easily ‘pay offable’ in the next 18mths and we are debt free apart from the small mortgage.
I quite often look at money management sites, mainly to get tips and to talk myself out of getting a shiny car. Anyway. this is how I got led down the rabbit hole of…wait for it…some threads on Mumsnet about gambling.
I was astounding at how many Mums are at home gambling but also, how bloody complicated it sounds. Talk about matched betting 30 x wager and bonus, software refresh times and all sorts or stuff. Some tragic stories but most claim they are ‘up overall’.
I will readily admit to having an addictive personality and after playing in bands, surfing and being into motorbikes, it’s amazing I don’t have a drug habit. I could easily be a drinker or gambler but have settled on endurance as my addiction.
I’m not after anyone sharing anything they don’t want to but does anyone on here have a flutter?
