Did you know as many as 8 million Americans have a problem with gambling? There are many different kinds of addictions. Drugs, alcohol, gaming, sexual, coffee, caffeine, and even sugar all have addicting properties-and more! However, what people don’t understand is how dangerous gambling can become on your life.

Everyone hopes they can get lucky. It would be easy money betting on the dice and if lady luck is on your side you could win a fortune. However, after a while it can become hard to see that lady luck may not be at your side. Finances can become depleted, making you feel the need to gamble more to try to win back your money, only to lose more. After a while, this cycle can result in damaging, life-altering effects.
