While gambling might seems like a relatively mild addiction, these anti-gambling ads by Canadian Bellwood Health Services shows that it can be just as bad as a drug addiction.

Gambling can lead to bankruptcy and broken homes, but it is often glamorized with its alluring prospect of making a lot of cash with a lucky stroke.

These ads portray the gambling person as if he were doing a line of coke, smoking a joint of weed or reaching for some pills to pop.

The ad campaign was created by Doner Canada, Toronto. Stats for Gambling as Drug Addiction Trending: Older & Chilly
