Hey Pheonix,

Sorry for not responding sooner but I didn't see this post until now!

Oh my how grim!

My understanding is that there have been studies to suggest a genetic component to developing addiction. But what I understand they are saying is that there are certain people that MAY be more prone than others to developing an addiction but it is is definitely not set in stone! My understanding is that it is a mix of of biological, environmental and social factors that make people really vulnerable to developing a problem. But again, vulnerable to developing a problem rather than it being a for-gone conclusion.

What do others think?

Hi every thing written in these posts I have experienced its a terrible feeling when you put your last penny in a machine and next minute someone else comes along and wins on the machine you really are sucked into a false sense of getting that big win
