Gamblers are a species unto themselves esp. people with a big problem. They lie and steal, even to their own flesh and blood! At work today I took a call from an American telling me he has a gambling problem, that he could not take hurting his family any more. Not that it would count, they had all left him. Poor fella is on his own. Threatening suicide! I obviously had to listen. Turns out he has lost 1.5million in $'s, got sacked from work, is up on a charge! And all I want to do was shout down the phone "STOP FCUKING GAMBLING THEN YOU STUPID CNUT!!!" So why waste money that could be spent on something better? Apart from the professional advice, how would you advise this guy?
