Second, maybe it is time we look at how much we gamble as a society. Lottoland commercials interrupt my favourite television shows promising big wins if I just invest a few dollars. Every news agent sells lottery tickets that get us to think that with just a few dollars, we can live the dream. Within a minute or so block of my flat, one can go to at least two places to play the pokies. For some it is a game. For a few they win. But for some it is an addiction where they endanger the well being of themselves and their families hoping for the big win. Gambling, although a fun game of chance for some, causes bankruptcy, marriage breakdown and family strife for so many others. And I don't know about you, but could I really enjoy my winnings, knowing that I have caused my sisters and brothers pain.
