What got you into gambling? And how old were you when you first started playing? For me, it was some of the movies I watched as a kid and I found the whole concept fascinating.
I remember how my first win felt; I think it was around $10 and as little as that amount was, I still recall every detail like this was yesterday. It took me time to completely get immersed in gambling partly because I was too cautious then. I realized that throwing caution to the wind (at times) helps build confidence.An old boyfriend took me to my first casino. I was already in my thirties and had never been to one, partially because the part of Texas that I'm from doesn't have any. New Mexico was a whole other country practically because it included casinos. I won $5 my first time!
Gambling is a social activity and it's friends who first dragged me into a casino. Initially, I was very reluctant but there was no going back after I started. I have kept the same circle of friends for a while and so we always keep other company in the casino.
