Do you consider playing the Lottery religiously a form of an addiction?

If  so: can you walk away from the game without going through a 12 step program?

      There is no way to avoid addiction. 

      Not in this life or the next.

      I compulsively go to work everyday for 8 hours due to my obession with money.. 

      When I work good I get a raise.

      When I work bad I go on probation or eventually get fired.

      I cant control working more when they offer overtime.

      I will win the lottery by being in the office pool, SOMEDAY.

        Without going thru a 12 step? Yes cause if I was flat broke I couldnt buy a ticket, I'd have no choice but to not play....but that's the onl reason I'd see for me not playing and thank God I have never encountered or hopefully never will that kind of situation

            It is what it is, I play every day, even if it's just 50 cent box.

             

            Good Luck.

              No, I go many days without playing now because sometimes life just gets to busy, I guess some people have a serious problem, I feel good at the end of the week when I have extra money left over.

              Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

                    Some players are just addicted to spending money especially if they aren't particular about the combinations they play or have a strategy for winning.

                      No, it's not an addiction for me.

                      I pay my bills with lottery money - I get it get it!

                        I consider it a form of fun.

                          Thats some dedication Haymaker. I've stuck to 10 numbers for the past 6 months and hit the mb/pb a bunch of times. Will the numbers we choose come up, it's possible.
