My view is personal, as each of yours is, respect.
But I have lived, experienced and seen the difference of a "bit of fun" go to when it starts to influence how some people and their families live day to day.
But hey ho, take it for what it is, no one can preach to all. Some have to learn it for themselves.
My opinion is not by any means religious, I dont do that gamble as I dont believe in God, the devil or other hocus pocus
Mine is different, the reality of living with a gambler
