    Boring And Useless

    Grew up in Vegas, and I can count on two hand, in decades, that I gambled and expected to win. I simply expected to lose. That is not normal. I believe I was just punishing myself for whatever good fortune I had had. Sick and twisted but true. Didn't think I deserved any money I...

    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!!!

    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.
