    This is an excellent video in that it destroys the illusion that one can win on gambling. When laid bare, its just a repetitive behaviour driven by compulsion, and that is what the gambling industry counts on. Read a? sobering account of gambling, Diary of a Compulsive Gambler, an excellent read. Amazon

    do they have? inpatient treatment?

  • CHASEDONKYFISH says:

    absolutely nothing for me. I don’t understand how listening to peoples gambling addiction stories is supposed to help me. Also, I am extremely Christian and the GA meetings are extremely watered down versions of God. I don’t like referring to THE GREAT I AM as a higher power. Nevertheless, I’m going to put a full fledge effort starting today. Also, I’m going to get some of this free college money and go back to school so I can learn a new trade and? get out of the casino industry.

    Move in with daddy because my mother in law/landlord is kicking me out of my own house for failure to pay rent/stealing blank checks and cashing about 3k at the bank. I have a son with her daughter and? our relationship has been severely strained, hanging on by a thread now. Luckily she is being supportive but her parents said I am no longer a part of their lives until I completely conquer my addiction, which is now my main focus in life. My main issue is I’ve tried going to GA and it does

    10 years ago I played a round of Texas holdem and I was instantly hooked. They? say poker is a skill game and to a degree it is, I consider myself a great player. But it’s still gambling I don’t care what anybody says, you can’t control the guy calling with a flush draw and cracking your trips. So I haven’t gambled in 3 weeks because I lost everything least I still have a car and a job that I have to find a way to quit because I deal poker in a casino anyway got till this weekend and I have to

    when starting gambling you will find it harmless but soon it will grow on you and it will become much bigger addiction than a king can afford,

    The truth is, if every drop of water in the oceans and every tree in the world turn into money, there aren’t enough money in the world for? 1 gambler alone.

    What’s happened is happened, it’s never ever too late to stop right now, than you start enjoying relationships with your loved ones, carry on gambling you will not lose money but much more in life.

    People think they can win? I’m an accountant and have experiences with casinos. One Casino located in Northern Sacramento for example (will not mention name), takes in over 500 million dollars in revenue each year. After paying off utilities, yearly permits, staff workers, management salaries, property taxes, they take home over 250 million dollars in pure profits. They have 300 tribal members in which each member gets a whopping 35,000 per month. Where? does the money come from?
