First, “a gambling problem,” sounds alot like saying the word “addiction,” so as I have said before, this post has nothing to do with gambling problems or addictions.  All it has to do with is LOSING money while gambling.  Whether someone has a gambling addiction and wins all the time but has no other life is another issue.
