    On the same time "shopping addiction" is not a major problem that at least I'm aware of ... some girls are addicted to buying lots of shoes, but how much does it affect their lives? how many people do you know who ruined their lives because of "shopping addiction"?

    Gambling has proven itself to be a destructive form of entertainment for millions of people, and that's a fact.
    So you can't compare the intentions of a grocery store against the ones of a bookmaker.

    But I do agree tobacco companies who create cigarettes are no different, and they do kill people as well... but leave the grocery industry out of it ... selling fruits & vegetables or even clothes is fine ... if anyone wants to buy lots of it I'm sure he won't kill himself because of it ... except for very rare cases of idiots who can't control their finances ... but they probably reflect a tiny percentage of the population whilst with gambling you see many more people affected by it.
    I definitely know more people who have financial problems because they spend too much money on things they dont need than I do people who have financial problems because they gamble too much.

    As far as grocery industry...wtf are you talking about? I never mentioned anything about the grocery industry.

    My whole point here is that your thread title is blatantly false. Gambling responsibly is absolutely not a myth. If you can accept that people gamble differently then you should have no problem acknowledging that that some people can bet responsibly.

    But, don't ever encourage people to gamble, just believe in karma.

    I don't care whether you are religious, and I don't care about what you've been saying in this thread, but gambling is a bad thing.
    Agreed.

    It depends on the individual but all in all yes gambling is not a good thing and has a negative effect over society. Their may be persons who can control themselves and win but eventually they will experience losing and based on how they handle this losing will tell them to what extent their problem is.

    I wasn't aware of the fact I'm getting 14 points per day ...
    And the first part your comment is a pure discrimination.

    Yes, I agree.
    Losing is inevitable in gambling.

    Every gambler must experience losing, there is no 1 single person in the world who could always bet and win - so dealing with a loss could be a problem. Some "chase" after the losses, some don't ... and the way people react can change ... some "solid" guys can be strong and never get a 'meltdown' after a loss ... but it takes 1 game, 1 time, to break that trend and make them ruin everything they work on for weeks/months/years.

    Yet I find it amusing some guys here are so "proud" to say they've been gambling for years and they are not bankrupt ... well, I've been gambling for years as well and I never went bankrupt neither ... but it's the amount of money and time that I spent on it that would never return ... so all you guys so "proud" of yourself be honest and ask yourself how much did you spend all these years? Even if you enjoyed it you have to be honest and recognize this wasn't a cheap activity.

    anytime an addict quits something, they tend to get real preachy during their honeymoon period....i went to a GA meeting when i was younger.. they told me it only works for approx 3% of the people...i didnt like my odds, so i walked away...

    They can talk about it in an online forum.

    I have to tell you something that I honestly cannot understand.
    Why oh why you keep on throwing those ridiculous stupid "GA meetings" into this topic?!

    I don't believe in GA and I don't go there.
    I believe in self-education.
    I believe GA is a waste of time!

    Why do I need GA if I can read a book that tell ms more than any other GA meetings would tell me?!
    If I have so many stories and videos available online why do I need to go to a meeting?
    I'm not against being social but GA is not the place.
    I tried it exactly once, only once, and I told myself this is not how people recover!

    So please stop with this nonsense like GA is the cure and remedy for everything.
    You want to help yourself? Evaluate what you do!

    There is no need to call it being "preachy", what I'm sharing is my own self-recovery.
    Been gambling free since June 25, 2014.

    I've been gambling free since June 25, 2014 and I haven't had the need to take any sort of pills whatsoever.
    I'm much more happier with my life and I'm doing much better financially and personally as well.

    dude you're a moron for posting here, if you seriously want to quit just leave all gambling sites, friends, acquaintances that gamble behind...its not impossible to quit but it requires a total lifestyle change...by even discussing gambling and keeping it alive in a corner of your mind its inevitably going to resurface...the world revolves around money..nice things cost money...go work on a masters in a field that is lucrative, education and career might help..otherwise the day will come when funds are low and you will be right back in the mix..bet on that.

    As I said early in this thread I am not active in this forum but mainly checking this topic, and participate here.
    I dedicate on average less than 5 minutes a day to this forum, and once again I could care less about gambling sites, the forum is different because it's a forum, it's not a casino.

    I don't even know what this card is, but I know MLB is baseball.
    If you need a winner just don't gamble, it's easy as that.
    Bet on yourself, good luck!
