Title: Gaming and gambling
Post by: IMO on September 01, 2010, 06:36:50 AM
At one time, if and when someone wanted to gamble, they would save money, and make a once or twice a year pilgrimage to Las Vegas. That was at one time. The corporate world has changed all of that over the years with their money and their greed. People don't have to travel to Sin City anymore, with the expansion of gaming in almost every state, except maybe four. I'll include lottery as a form of gaming. Does the expansion of gaming benefit or hurt in the long run? Well, it brings money into the individual state. It does create jobs. I predicted several years ago, that the thinking of the corporate gaming world would be, " You don't have to come to me. Just wait. I'll be in your neighborhood soon. You won't have to fly to Las Vegas anymore." And they did build casinos in neighborhoods in other states. If a corporation didn't build a casino, they bought a race track, and named it a " racino." The horsemen had to get used to a new breed of people who knew or know nothing about the horse racing industry. The horsemen relied on corporations to give them a fair share of the gaming revenue to increase horse purses. Most racinos have given the horsemen a fair share. And purses have increased.   I feel that's what is keeping horse racing alive in most states. I feel that more people should seriously consider buying race horses as an investment, and race them at racinos. A person doesn't have to buy a horse for hundreds and thousands of dollars. You could and should invest in a claiming horse, the blue collar performer in the racing world. A five thousand dollar horse at a track such as Charles Town which is in West Virginia, could race for a fifteen thousand dollar purse. When I can save enough money, and get a person or two who are risk takers, I'll be owning a horse.

The corporate world of gaming is more greedy than Wall Street. In Las Vegas, Harrah's owns just about one side of the strip, with the exception of Caesar's Palace, which is on the MGM side of the street. MGM sold the Mirage to the person who owned the Frontier. The Mirage is the David among the Goliaths. Corporations spread like Walmarts and payday loan places. But, did they spread out too much? Of course they did. The key to most failure from success is greed. The casinos busted too many people at one time. Add in the present economy on top of that, and corporate numbers go down. When numbers fall for the suits on top, your number of  staff begin to fall as well. I feel that corporations now, have the attitude of be grateful you have a job. Work your eight hours, and keep your mouth shut.

People will always gamble. People who don't gamble will gamble on an occasion. A few would include the Super Bowl, Kentucky Derby, the World Cup or even the World Series. Gambling is a form of entertainment for most, but a nightmare for others. Sure, it started as innocent entertainment, until it escalated past that into a world of secrecy and compulsion. The compulsive gambler is like an odorless liquid. You don't know what it is. You could spot a drug addict or a hooker before you could spot a compulsive gambler. There would still be compulsive gamblers with out casinos. I feel that the numbers increased dramatically with the expansion of gaming. People seeking a life changing score. Would they stop gambling? The answer is no for the compulsive person. Most people don't understand problem gamblers. It isn't the amount of money being bet. It's about the action. It's all about having action. The amount of money lost is secondary to the compulsion. It's sad, because like any problem disease, it isn't the way to live.

So, what is the future of gaming? It will always be here, because people will always want to gamble. What did you gamble on first? Flipping baseball cards or pitching pennies?

Kim PottleThe games lost their fun and I became a slave to galmnibg.  Once I realized this I tried a variety of ways to quit (including GA, an outpatient program and cold turkey).  Each time I quit I was feeling better and enjoying it.  I learned what the crazy thoughts were for me, also known as triggers, and worked to avoid them.  I found that the more I forgave myself for my weakness (I sucked at quitting) the easier it was to stay out of a casino.  For example, I would put a week of  clean  time together and decide I could handle it again so I'd go play.  To this day I can't  handle  it well.  I would play and the frenzy from my addiction to it would cause a mental and physical crash.  When that wreck came to a stop I would come away from it knowing that I need to choose a different path or continually suffer.  Eventually I began to let myself feel better in a healthy way and each day I learn to deal with my feelings instead of running away from reality.By the way, I don't know a single person who isn't addicted to something you are rare!  Whether it's work, eating, internet, chocolate, sports or whatever ~ we seem to all do something to the extreme.

I used to have a bit of gambing adcitdion along with my drug & alcohol adcitdion combined. But, 3-4 yrs ago when I sought help with my drug & alcohol adcitdion, the gambling one left also. but recently I started buying LOTTERY TICKETS AGAIN/??I only bought 4 so far, and I never won a thing. I was very dissappointed in myself. Plus God is very dissappointed in me also I can feel it inside my heart. I think I better give this another good think before I buy any more tickets in the future. THANKS FOR SHARING YOUR ADDICTION WITH US ALL. It's been hard for me also, but I am clean for 2 yrs now. I LOVE IT!

Kim PottleI think addictions to vaouirs things have a lot of similarities.  I hope you will please consider this: being hard on yourself can set you into a tail spin.  Practicing awareness (you know that it isn't the right decision for you) and forgiveness (I did it, but now I'm thankful that I know better) is a powerful and loving way to move through things.  When I was ashamed of my behavior I was that much worse because I figured  what's the use.  I already blew it.   You are a precious child of God and I appreciate you sharing your healing with the world.Thanks for your encouragement and you're welcome!

Kim PottleWell thanks Holly!  Most days it seem like I don't relaly have a choice.  I have a beautiful gift of experience and I need to share it.  I still look forward to reading your book I saw a copy of it in the Payson East West Exchange.  That was fun and encouraging for me.  I know that I will be able to use the wisdom on the pages to help those around me as well.
