This is for the Counsel that is appealing:
The government is providing an addictive service that destroys families, friends ,there have been those that have taken their own lives because of this addiction. they have not created a safe place for the public. The casino's should be warning the public of the dangers of addiction, very visibly in their facility and in the media. They need to say "Gambling may cause you to commit suicide". the public needs to be warned. What are the odds that they will actually do this. But this in fact is a statistic that cannot be ignored.

ya meetings didnt do anynihtg for me either the problem is family and friends mean well but gambling isnt really a disease like other addictions and most addictions arent diseases some have a chemical dependency gambling does NOT gambling is always a player WANTS to either action, money, both, escaping reality and maybe a few other reasons having someone truly explain the odds in a casino game if you are addicted to lottery or slots or table games can really open your eyes the house edge is so big you truly can not do these for a living and or expect to hit it big- if you are addicted to games that ARE beatable like Blackjack or Sports betting or Poker you just need to ask yourself is chasing a dream worth it while these games are beatable its the 1% that beats them. Now we all want to accomplish greatness but this road has a high risk and most fail. the more people you have dependent upon you should weigh heavily if your a kid with no spouse or kids dependent on you, I will give more latitude in terms of chasing your gambling dreams, but if you have people dependent on you you need to make an adult decision personal responsibility is EVERYTHING YES the choice is yours, but I would suggest that if you have a spouse or kids, you also have to consider their feelings also, gambling is a narrow road with little middle ground between Big Dreams and Heartbreak and the Falls can be great, and while maybe you can handle it, other people in your life maybe cant or don't deserve to go through it because they are not affected by gambling and the appeal isn't there for them to risk it all for the small chance of winning it all!!!! Meetings can only help but they aren't the whole solution- your right they occupy your time- they give you people that have been through the same stuff they aren't judgmental but they treat you like a child, its never your fault, your have a disease, which I dont agree with its never a bad thing to admit its ALL your fault when it is, and most gamblers its TOTALLY our fault because we risk everything and more than money for a dream and an opportunity!!!!Good luck to you

My husband has a gmialbng addiction and says to give him time, yet all the while he continues to gamble.His addiction isn't to the point of breaking our finances but does put a strain on saving any or having money to do things. However, he does help pay the bills.I have a problem with it because he is gone all the time at off-track betting and doesn't come home till late at night. His days off are spent there as well. I pretty much feel the marriage isn't a priority to him anymore.I am trying to decide if I should give him the time or leave the marriage. I'm curious if there have been a high number gamblers who have successfully quit. Severall tell me it's not so.Any ideas?
