When I was a first year student in college, I had a lot of free time since the academics had not picked up and the workload was comparatively less. Therefore I started playing snooker game at my free time with friends. At first I was only playing for fun but as I become more professional in the game I realized that I could make some few coins by gambling with the les proficient players.
This unfortunately was the beginning of my miserable life for the next one year. With time, I continued gambling with renewed vigor and sometimes I could even fail to attend some classes and instead go to gamble.
This greatly affected my grades since I spent a lot of time playing rather than studying. My little finance were not spared as well since the little money that came my way, I diverted it all to snooker game.
