Gambling can hurt lives

The losses of gaming and wagering sometimes go far beyond the bet or price of a ticket. People who gamble can fall victim to addiction just like people that drink or use drugs. Just like other addictions, pathological gambling can begin during adolescence. Just like other addictions, a person will beg, borrow and steal to feed the addiction. They will neglect their families, abuse family members, reject friends and lose everything chasing a win. Problem gamblers have a higher rate of suicide and attempted suicide than any other addiction.
