Problem Gambling, Addictions and Poverty – Gambling

Gaming is everywhere as people are encouraged to gamble while billionaires mine their wallets for cash. To be caught in an addiction is to become prey to those who will rob, spoil, even murder to get what they want. Drugs, gambling and poverty go hand in hand and yet those who are targeted are least able to escape the deadly onslaught. In recent days a report states that a judge is taking a Casino to court and suing the owners because he was made so drunk that he lost over $50,000 in a single night. The question is why was he there in the first place?Alcohol is another painful addiction to the world of darkness in which such people find themselves. It is something that governments fail to address as alcohol and gambling pay a lot of taxes but that money comes from those who then appeal to the politicians for help.Homelessness, divorce, loss of assets, suicide, depression and so on are all related to the path that many slide down in an effort to become rich. That is the bottom line. If people are promised a chance to win a fortune they grab at it. Those who are more cautious stand back and observe as the addicted ruin their lives and just about that of everyone around them.Loved ones who can’t or won’t be helped are a rope around the necks of many family members who tear themselves apart in the search for answers. The owners of casinos and the producers of drugs and alcohol are laughing all the way to the bank.It is one of the dark corners of society that many are trapped within. Until either they release themselves from the grip of despair or the powers that be clamp down on the things that are destroying them there is little hope for change.
