GAMBLING ADDICTION

Guest Blog by: Marilyn L.

As you are reading this article, someone you know may be embezzling money to support a gambling addiction. The addiction is not prejudiced. It affects rich and poor, young and old, and knows no racial barriers.

High school students are gambling illegally on computers, college students are gambling their tuition money, and senior citizens are using their retirement funds.

 GAMBLING ADDICTION


Gambling has become the nations’ leading form of recreation and the money wagered is more than the combined total spent on all other forms of entertainment. Most people can gamble and not use money or time that interferes with their family life or their employment.

Unfortunately, a percentage of people who gamble develop an addiction that is progressive and destructive, and creates problems such as divorce, loss of employment and homes, bankruptcy, suicides, and some are serving prison sentences.

I destroyed my life with gambling and joined a support group where I found hope and strength. I needed someone to show me how to stop, not tell me, “Just stop!” I have not gambled for more than eighteen years and have turned my life around.

Years ago there were very few women in the support groups and when one did attend, she didn’t return so a couple of females came to my apartment one night and we started a women’s group.

A short time later, we published a Women Helping Women Newsletter For more about GAMBLING ADDICTION link to Books
