this psychologist is dead on. this is why i preach to only play the under let's say 10m state lotteries. avoid powerbore and meggie millions as they are nearly impossible to hit and hitting it will envitably bring problems. everyone seems greedy and wants those 100m jackpots, but you really don't need that much as you will be constantly hounded by individuals for a cut...

      Wow, that newspaper and the psychologist make you want to hang yourself just from reading about how terrible a thing it is for someone to win.

      Apparently there are libs over there too, wanting to throw a wet blanket on the party.

      For the winner this is a time to be happy and get drunk, not depressed. Where do these people come up with this stuff?

      Rock and ROLL!

      That's exactly what I'm thinking rdgrnr! Be happy! Start spending!

      If anyone has a problem or will have one...ie: hiding instead of claiming their prize winnings..they shouldn't be playing.

        I thought the article was being realistic about the matter and not sugar coating it. THe message was : Change will happen and must happen , IS the winner capable of adapting to that change. I didnt see it in a negative way.Maybe thats because WHEN i win, I have adapted thru much and this would be no different. 

        I simply hope its a family person and not a group.

        The history of lottery winners, as well as many other things, shows that what the psychologist said is generally true. Plenty of people don't do well with major changes in their life, even when others only notice the positive changes. No matter how well grounded the winner(s) may be, things are going to be very different. If nothing else, Joe Walsh had it right:

        "It's tough to handle
        This fortune and fame
        Everybody's so different
        I haven't changed "
