48 Gambling Addictions

From Card-Carrying Flasks to Lottery Ticket Towers

— October 23, 2009 — Lifestyle
I’ve had my fair share of exposure to gambling. In all honestly, although it can be a fun ‘sport,’ I’ve never (thankfully) become truly addicted to these various games of luck and chance. But that’s not to say I don’t see their appeal. Sometimes I feel that I’m so disconnected because it would be dangerous for me to let my guard down. Blackjack, poker and especially those darn slot machines can easily lure me--or anyone, really--into gambling addictions.
