Gambling at school!

Post by horrorfan » Tue Aug 19, 2008 11:44 am

When I was going to college, I would play poker 3 or 4 nights a week. My friends and I would meet up and play all night sometimes. Looking back on it now, if I would have concentrated on school more than playing cards, I would have got A's and B's instaed of C's and D's. This may have had a huge affect on the choices I made in life and the jobs I took when I graduated. It is a shame to hear of college students dropping out of school because they think they can win the World Series of Poker or become a professioanl gambler. I wish I would have made better decisions at that age. Does anybody know someone who has done this? If you do, your friendship may be the most powerful tool you have to help them make the right choice!!!!! Please reply to this post if you know someone who is in this position, there is help for them.

Even scarier are highschools kids sitting in their room gambling. All these online casinos are raising a whole new generation of gambling addicts.

Don t allow to gambling at school. Gambling is one of the bad habit. All school board must try to control that type activities in school background. If anyone see this activities from students side ,there must take action against that student. It will lead to avoid Gambling for ever.

There have legal and illegal gambling but both makes bad effect on the student’s life. So it is the responsibility of teacher to make campaign about gambling in school.
