Have you gone without food or medicine because of a gambling problem?

I've heard many stories of seniors going without food or meds because they've spent their monthly incomes at casinos, bingo halls or at their local convenience stores scratching cards. Most times their families are totally unaware of the suffering that goes on behind closed doors and what's lacking in their pantries or medicine cabinets.

If you are a senior gambler and see yourself doing without because of gambling, please tell someone. Tell a friend, a family member or call the 888-ADMIT IT line. There is help out there, so there's no reason to suffer in silence.

If you're a loved one of a senior gambler, pay them a visit from time to time. Make sure its not a problem. If it is, then find them some help.
Your beliefs become your thoughts.
Your thoughts become your words.
Your words become your actions.
Your actions become your habits.
Your habits become your values.
Your values become your destiny.
Mahatma Gandhi (1869 - 1948)
