    Thats right, your boy Milton has a problem. I'm a full fledged, card carrying, gambling addict. Poker mostly, first it was just Texas Hold'em but then I moved on to Stud, Draw, Omaha, Lowball basically anything with cards. I said mostly poker, but really and truely I'll bet on anything, blackjack, paigow, baccarat, dice, horses, sporting events, pool, golf, whether or not a friend of mine was arrested for groping middle aged women. (I lost 100 bucks cause it turns out he was) I actually won a little over 200 bucks one night drunk betting double or nothing on coinflips. I've bet on board games, I'm best at monopoly, and drag racing, and whether or not Ben and J. Lo would get married (won 100 on that) also fighting fish, cockfighting, boxing, slot machines, keno, lotto, I took a large part in a small time number running game in highschool, highschool sports, college sports. I even took bets on what time certain planes would leave the airport during our 4 hour layover on a group trip to San Francisco. I've bet dog racing, whether or not certain houses would get egged on halloween, whether or not I would throw french fries across the room and hit this dude at red robin (I won that one by the way), oh, video games, the ending to movies, war, crazy 8s, go fish... And admitting you have a problem is half the battle. So thats me, Milton, gambling addict.

    have fun being poor for the rest of your life, and watching over your shoulders for those repo men coming to club your knee's out when you can't pay up.

    if i were you, i'd go into rehab and never take another bet in my life... cause living the life of a gambling addict is BALLS.

    well, coming from a city that has a casino, poker machines in most pubs, and sports betting outlets in more places than mcdonalds (it's pretty much the same in every major city in the country), i am more than familiar with gambling addiction.

    my aunt worked as head of security at the casino and would tell me all the rough shit that would go down. people pissing under the tables so they wouldn't lose their seats, people collapsing from exhaustion from staying awake for days on end gambling, people committing suicide in the bathrooms on a weekly basis, and of course the well publicised baby deaths. people would leave their kids in their cars on hot ass days with all the windows closed and their children would quite literally melt to death.

    a couple of (ex) friends of my parents were big time gambling addicts. lost the kids, lost the house, and lost all their friends.

    two words: gamblers anonymous.

    seriously guy. don't fuck up your life over some bullshit

    I play a lot of craps when I am drunk./

    I usually win... atleast I think I do.. because I usually wake up the next morning with about 100 dollars more than I left with.

    Come to New York. I can think of much more productive ways to spend all that money you don't seem to need.

    I saw this coming. I think I jokingly mentioned it to you once, too. Go figure.

    The amount that you gamble…I have nothing to say except that you’re a betting man. You should cut down drastically, or maybe even stop altogether.

    I’m watching Reno 911 for the first time tonight. Pretty funny stuff. “I didn’t rob nothing…they went over there. They said fuck the police!”

    I mean, well I don't think I'd say I'm an addict as much as a gambler. Like I don't gamble seriously unless I feel I have some edge over the competition. And I'd say all things considered I'm ahead when it comes to money made versus money lost. In fact I'm positive I'm ahead, as I was making my living for a while strictly playing poker. But at the same time when I spend a day gambling online only to come out down 52 dollars I think to myself "I could have done something better with my time like donated blood or went to the park." When I look back at my career as a gambler, I think it's taught me a lot more about life than most people would understand. But at the same time the majority of people think gambling is a "filthy habit" etc. I had a discussion with this girl I used to sleep with which turned into an all out fight because I said that this one hand where I lost 2500 bucks that if I were in the same position I'd put the 2500 up again, because I was basically a 25 to one shot to win. If anybody plays hold em I had aces full versus 7's full and the guy caught a damn 7 on the river. Anyway, my point is, yes I'm a gambler, yes I am willing to risk a large amount of money on an investment that I find to be a good one, but what investor on wall street wouldn't take the same odds? And the 2500 I had built up from 100 bucks. I dont know...
    I'm not an addict I just bust a lot...

    Have you become powerless over gambling? Has your life become unmanageable? If yes, you're probably a gambling addict.
