    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!!!

    Gambling is surely for either the absolute genius or the absolute retarded. If you are neither of these...just dont bother, you'll lose.
