Well done jc

So quiet at the moment, it is a bit of a worry considering all the issues the site is still having at the moment. Hopefully everyone's posts are not just disappearing

So i went to the casino last night. Abstained from gambling of course. Didn’t even have much of an urge to bet - except when the Premier League started. Yet I just looked on with sadness at people sitting at blackjack/baccarat tables pumping thousands of dollars. Looked on with sadness at all the pokies machines, and people just sitting in front of them. Even worse seeing all ten ATMs there being flooded with people and withdrawals after withdrawals...

125 days is an amazing achievement JC, and I love getting your updates.

It seems our bugs are not as fast a fix as initially thought, unfortunately. I hear you that it's frustrating - I am so glad you're still able to post during this time.
I've put a post at the top of the forums about this with a little more info, but I promise we're working on getting this fixed up as soon as possible.

Have a nice weekend!

It's an interesting question. I'd thought about it last night and... I don't think its as much genetic, per se as I think its' more a societial thing. Society instils in us... as it did our parents , grandparents eta... behaviours to feed the economy. When you look at society... not just gambling... you can see people addicted to "credit cards", for one, people addicted to work... sugar... Salt... smoking!!

This would be something our learnt moderators could best answer... :)

Well done on 118 days JC!

Another week done and dusted. On to day 118.

Felt a little down this week. Probably the worst I’ve felt in a few weeks. Hopefully things will turn around.

Does anyone think gambling (or addictions in general) are genetic?

My dad was an alcoholic whos now a pokies addict. Both my cousins on my mother’s side were drug addicts (both have turned their life around).

It makes you wonder.
