    I want to regulate my friends spending habit for gambling

    Wed Feb 25, 2015 11:36 pm


    I have something that needs advice and/or attention,

    theres a friends of mine that I taught how to play poker,

    just for fun when we dont have anything to do or when its a boring day.

    I taught him how the play the basics and taught him how to play like a pro.

    But as time goes by, I didnt noticed that he has been playing on events.

    I said to myself, I think that fine, maybe he just wants to experience the real thing.

    And then after a few months, I just got the news that hes been spending a lot of money

    playing poker. And his wife is alerted by that.

    So I want to take responsibility for it, dont want to stop or prevent him from playing.

    I might get worse if I did that.

    I just want to regulate how he spends money.

    Can anyone help me?
