I don't know what's wrong with my code

Write your question here.

I'am running this program on code blocks,
I don't know whats wrong with the code it might be confusing to explain, I recommend you run it to know what I mean. when you choose the first path (1)
it goes along with what it's supposed to do. but when you make the second choice of the of the first path (1>1 or 1>2) it reads: "you stumble across a fork in the road even though that's dialogue for the second path. please help I don't know whats going on.

Are you sure you've posted the right code? I don't see the word "stumble" anywhere in your code.

Assuming you're talking about line 99 (which talks about a fork), that code isn't inside any kind of conditional block. It will always execute, because you haven't specified any conditions for it to choose whether or not to execute.

Some other comments:

- Don't use goto. It makes for messy, unstructured code, and it will be harder for you to follow the logic. C++ has perfectly good control structures, such as loops and functions, if you need to repeat parts of the code.

- It would make it much easier for you, and us, to follow the logic of your code, and spot any errors, if you used a consistent indentation style. Seriously, that will help you lots.
Sorry I ment "come across" when I said stumble.

I'am also sorry for such a basic question but I thought it was in a conditional block, that's why I couldn't find what was wrong with it.

also not meaning to be rude how would a loop or function help with this type of program, would it make it easier.

@IIGabrielII, this is how the program can look like with functions and C++ loops
Works with VS2017 Enterprice
