    Gambling Has Ruined My Relationship

    My sig. other is a gambler.  I have lost nearly all of the love I have for him, because of his gambling.  It wasn't so bad when he was working also.  At least then, he was gambling his own money away.  For the last two years, he's not been working...

    I have lived in communities

    where people's lives have been ruined by gambling. The essential element on gambling is that it is a contractual activity.I would never gamble in case somebody's life was ruined by my sharing in it.It also encourages great selfishness.

    Gambling Problem

    I hate gambling , because it seems like an endless waste of time with no end in sight.  It consumes every aspect of your life and destroys everything you work so hard to attain.  It is as bad as being a crack head, because you are always looking for that next HIGH!!!
