            ?????????????????????????????????

            How about lottery gambling addiction? Playing the lottery like a lab rat and not winning.

            For all gamblers, even small-time bettors, gambling at the very least correlates with feelings such as irritation, frustration and aggravation then can worsen to agony, depression, violence and suicide. Gamblers may not always admit experiencing these feelings. However, gamblers definitely do experience these feelings. Even small-time $1 a week lottery players get irritated, frustrated and aggravated when always losing. Rarely though do gamblers only bet $1 a week even if saying that. When gamblers who say they only ever bet $1 a week, see a super jackpot getting big and bet $5, $10, $20 or more on it, then they are not $1 a week gamblers any longer. Gambling always means losing money. Usually losing more money than intended. The bottom line is that losing money and feeling all of these negative emotions is not fun, recreational or entertaining.

            Every so-called moderate gambler has a gambling problem. Suppose that you are considered to be a moderate gambler. A moderate gambler will occasionally lose for example $5 at a time. So the gambling industry basically "grabs" $5 at a time from you. You would remember this for a lifetime if a thief grabbed a $5 bill out of your hand and ran away with it. What about a gambling industry "thief" who grabs $5 each time from you for a super jackpot lottery drawing? The odds are that you will never hit a super jackpot even if living many thousands of lifetimes. How about grabbing $5 a race at the horse racetrack? How about grabbing $5 a hand at blackjack? How about grabbing $5 for a few slot machine pulls? How about grabbing $5 per stock trade? How about grabbing $5 from you at other gambling activities? That occasional $5 multiplied by countless occasional times, adds up to a lot of money over the months and years. Anyone who is grabbing your money like this is a problem that must be eliminated. But the gambling industry does not want you to think this way. The gambling industry wants you to think that each occasional $5 lost gambling is fun, recreational and entertaining. The gambling industry spends millions of dollars on advertising and public relations to keep their so-called moderate gambling customers foolish and ignorant about gambling.

              This is the way ALL   Lotteries should be, Anonymous period....!!!

              To many folks have to deal with other things involving winning the lottery when they have to disclose who they are. 

              Everyone should sign a petition to have the  their States have these people remain anonymous...! 

              Too many people expect that they should know everything.  Why?  It's amazing that people live in states where anonymity is not even optional (like Rhode Island where I live).  Having other people decide for you how much privacy you give up is stupid and intrusive and more than mildly offensive.

                Well Thrifty, its like this......If you earn your money and its spent on power bills and cable and the newspaper, lottery, cigarettes, alcohol..who really cares ? I don't care if you want to do that..its none of my concern. If you want an extra $5 spent on something, its your choice, if its forced upon you and you have to pay, then its no longer your choice(like the price of gas and food lately)....do those items give me the possibility of returning money or  possible retirement ???  Not at all...But the choice remains with the person with the money....Its mine and I will spend it as I see fit.... I don't  tell anybody else on how to spend their money or how they should feel....IMHO neither should anyone else...but then again..that's the wonderful part about this country...Freedom of choice/speech and the right remain silent.

                Stay Positive, Believe and good things will come your way

                        Can you stop playing the lottery for 1 year?

                        How about spending your annual lottery budget once a year in one drawing?

                          Looks like the KS winner was an own pick.  When I win, I won't claim my jackpot anonymously because I can't. Staying anonymous is only good if you don't know how to say no to charities and people, are old, or plan to continue living in current residence. I wouldn't fall into any of those categories, so you can look forward to seeing my smiling face! 

                          When I win and before I make my move to warmer climate, destination unknown to all solicitors, any piece of mail I see addressed "Jackpot Lottery Winner" or Powerball/Mega Millions Jackpot Winner" will immediately find its way into my recycling bin.  Basically, what I am saying is that all solicitors and beggars will be wasting money on postage to contact me, and those attempts will be futile.  This is the rule of thumb I would apply:  if you have never loaned me any money in the past, don't bother asking me to give you any money when I win big money!  Kapisch?!

                          Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                          The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

                            Smart move. It is too many crazy people out here ready to take advantage of you and turn your life upside down.

                            Not a "smart move" for all of those who lost and question the integrity and legitimacy of the lottery. How do we know a real person actually received anything? I would think that lottery would care more about the billions of losers and people who made the jackpot what it was than they do about the one winner(s) security. Many do not believe they are legit if no actual winner is posted, and think that the larger jackpot games are scams and fixed. I would not doubt it either. Plus is BS that some states allow it and others don't. Make the playing field level or many will not even play at all.

                              But SirB. just having someone's smiling mug in a shot with a gigantor-sized check will not guarentee that the lottery is legit either.  It could be someone who was paid 50$ and given a hot meal.
