One - Get help if you think you have a gambling problem. There are several organizations that can help, including Gamblers Anonymous. The sooner you get help, the sooner you can straighten out the rest of your life. Two - increaseing your debt will only do more damage. You sound like you're headed toward bankruptcy. Even with a good job, $20k debt can take as long as 20 years to pay off. Bankruptcy will seriously damage your credit for the next 9-13 years. If you can't meet the minimums (and even then, your debt will keep increasing due to finance charges), then work out a payment schedule with your creditors that will show good faith and take care of the problem. --Adding to the answer Third--call a credit counceling company. Not only will they put you on a payment program that most of the lenders will work with but the interest rate is also reduced while you stay on their payment program. You need help ASAP! You are hooked and you know unless you get to those meetings to help yourself you are going to get into serious trouble. Even if you go to a small club or a select group of men to gamble THEY WANT THEY'RE MONEY or your legs! Trust me on that one! Good luck (on kicking the habit)

What are the effects of gambling?

Also called problem gambling, a gambling addiction, compulsive gambling, and pathological gambling, problem gambling is characterized by an urge to gamble, even in the face of consequences sufficientlyAlthough seemingly analogous to other addictions, in its early stages at least problem gambling is construed not by the gambler's behavior but by its consequences. As a result, it is relegated diagnostically to something more than a personality quirk but less than a compulsion.In fact, a gambler must virtually throw away his entire life to gambling before the American Psychiatric Association's criteria will acknowledge the presence of a problem. At that point it becomes clinical pathological gambling, a progressive mental illness involving an impulse control disorder.
