I remember Deb and I going on a cruise and there we slot machines on the entertainment deck. She had always wanted to try one. So, having seen some of the devastation a gambling addition can cause I said, “Take $2 (I know I”m a huge spender) and play until you run out.” So, she did and about her 3rd or 4th quarter she won $10. I said, “Ok, good now give me back your $2 and play with your $10.” She said, “Oh, that’s cool.. Now I can’t lose anything!” But when she lost her $10 very quickly she said, “Maybe just another quarter?” Of course I said in my most spiritual tone: “See, that’s what this can do.. It’s just one more quarter and one more and one more until our house is gone!” She said two words, “Oh pleeease!” And I admit that it was a little dramatic but I’ve seen people get hurt terribly because they couldn’t control their gambling.
