    We have always had a link posted at the bottom of the forum, but realized maybe some people never noticed it and might need it.

    It is hard to realize that it is a problem for people having the problem though. I don't think I have a problem even if I play a lot.

    Yes you are right. The hardest part of the addiction is admitting you have a problem!

    It is not something everyone is aware of I am afraid, but something that needs to be faced at times by some of us

    Sometimes it is the gambling experience itself, for example, a big win early in someone's gambling experience can create a false perception that gambling is an easy way to earn money, putting the person at risk of increasing their dependence on gambling.

    I had a Few example for this

    Jason Berg killed himself after running up a huge gambling loss. He left a suicide note which simply read, "I'm out of control." He was 19 years old.

    For those who have forgotten, probably the best-known pathological gambler is Pete Rose. A record-breaking hall of fame player was banned from the game he loved for life because of his gambling problems.

    A 40 year old Illinois woman gambled away her family's savings and her wedding ring on a riverboat casino. When she found out that the sheriff was on his way to evict her and her family for missing 17 consecutive mortgage payments, she drove to a mall parking lot and shot herself. She left a husband who did not even know that his wife gambled, let alone had a gambling problem.

    Its destroys families and destroys lives. My ex was a gambler, all he talked about was killing himself because he couldnt handle the stress and depression that came with gambling all his paychecks away. That is why we have these links up on the forum, if you have a gambling problem or know someone that does, please reach out and help them or yourselves!

    Please remember though that not everyone that gambles has a problem. Just like everyone that drinks is not an alcoholic. If done responsibly they are both great entertainment.
