Flashing vending machines , which attract us with every glittering light and exorbitant amounts of money at every other restaurant or pub. The number of gambling clubs increases year after year.
It is therefore no wonder that at the same pace as gambling rooms, there are also addicted gamers. Although gambling (yes, deliberately I call illness) is not much talked about, the truth is that it is completely destruction for the gambler himself and his broad family – if he has one, of course.
I can stop at any time
That’s what everybody who ever threw a five into the slot machine. And the addicted gambler calls this even more doggedly. However, the truth is that a person affected in this way simply cannot stop playing for good. One evening he throws his paycheck into the slot machine, the other goes to borrow, because this time he has to be “lucky” and will win.
