I have known people who let gambling and/or drinking and/or drugs (both those prescribed by doc's and not prescribed by anyone!) take over their lives and those of their families. But, I don't think that it makes it wrong for someone who is not addicted to enjoy a couple of drinks or a spin in the casino on vacation. Okay, I am totally against street drugs...just too dangerous when you don't have a clue what you are really getting. Not based on religion....but please don't call that hocus-pocus. Them's fighting words! And I really don't want to fight with a friend.
