Gambling City opens with Altieri entering an illegal gambling parlor in Milan and taking a seat beside several tuxedoed patrons at its high-roller table.

Certainly I was a social gambler, you know? And that progressed the older I got, with going out with boys, y'know?
Couple of pints and stuff, y'know But it didn't take long for it to progress. I was spending more time basically gambling, I was spending more money, y'know, so Well, the money is not the key. It's when you go over your means. Now that could be by one pound, y'know, I could, I could spend one hundred pounds a week. Somebody else could spend could spend a thousand pound a week. Somebody else could spend a thousand pound a week.
There's no value in money, so there's not. When did you realise there was something not quite right and you should try to go and get help? I knew that I had.. I knew something was wrong, but I didn't exactly know what to do about it or who to talk to.
