How Much Does It Take To Be Addicted?

As a recovering Compulsive Gambler I was amazed at the article below. You might ask why? Well let me explain. After winning a massive jackpot in January, this person played again in a different game. She referred to the game as her favorite which indicates she plays it fairly often and yet she feels 'lucky' that her 3rd one was a winner. When gambling I had the same type of comments made and it seldom turned out that I kept my winnings. Ultimately only time will tell. Will she stop and live on the money won or will she continue to play? Continuing to play would be a sign that ultimately she could have lost much of what she won. Either way her situation is not the norm. What are your thoughts? Do you think that wealth makes a difference in Gambling as to weather it is an addiction?

It's not the matter of how much she wins, it's the matter of how she thinks of herself. Those who gamble and win never believe that one day, they will become poor due to the gambling habit. When they are not winning, they just think that they are temporary down on luck, and surely the next win will compensate them for all the losses.
