Have you ever scratched a lottery ticket wishing you would have a chance to be a Billionaire? Have you ever lost so many times you cannot count anymore? There is a better chance if you have worked all those times you gambled, at a Job, and earned half the share you bet on, or gambled to.
Yes I know it is fun, but not always. Some people get so addicted it ruins their life's. They have to keep gambling, but why? What is in for you? The truth really is, that its a happy feeling, a comfort to know you could have more cash, and not have to work a Job, and have it made for the rest of your life.
The fact is that gambling is an addiction if you have to go their everyday of every week. It is casual to go out with friends have a drink, eat food, and enjoy life. But some of those betting, and constantly go there to win. They have a problem with happiness. But they do not know it, or understand it. It is a rush of adrenaline, a fun happy time, that they never want to lose. It is their go to, and they need it. It is their therapy, and self medication.
Do you know all the money they spend gambling, can go to a different kind of happiness. Going to different restaurants, being themselves, a night out at home barbecuing. Some people do not have access to the things we need the most. A different schedule of happiness that will make them alive, and see things a whole different way, of living.
No one knows what it is like to have a gambling problem unless your them. All the time they have spent could have been with their kids, their families, their friends. They could have already won the lottery with the amount of money they had already spent!
So how do we help them? Counseling, therapy, and medication. Something that makes them happy without them casing after money. That way is when they are gambling hard to earn, and win. They can work just as hard as a Job, and automatically be sure they are paid for it every time!
