Any way you look at it lottery is gambling. Gambling is an addiction. Yes,lottery can be one too.

I live with someone who is addicted to coffee,lol. Now I don't like coffee...anyone know how to cure that? 1-800-NO-TO-JOE...any such number???  LOL

Coffee is my lifeblood in the morning.

And then, like most people, I drink whiskey all night.

          I'm only a rec player who buys tickets a 3-5 times a year when the PB jackpots are over 300 million.  I remember that MM 660 million jackpot a while back.

            what happened sha-neuk? Pronounced (chi-nook) (not chi) like chi town. 

            I think the lottery is more obsessive than addictive.

            That is my official answer chinook.

                  Lottery is adictive just like Casino gambling. In a way it's more so addictive. To gamble at a casino, a person has to go to the casino. With Lottery, a lottery agent store is EVERYWHERE! There is no shortage of places available to take your money to fullfill your fix, pick digits, jackpot games, keno, scratch offs whatever. I think the addicton in gambling comes from the high or high from the anticipation of winning.Nobody gets a high off of losing money.I set a strict lottery budget and I stick to it, well most of the time.Wink To avoid lottery and gambling addiction or any addiction for that matter, self control is vital.

                  Following the trends and patterns means following the money!Banana

                    i would say it's not  a bad thing , don't go to bars or strip joints , not a drug user or big drinker (just enough keep the wife looking good)...more of a losing addiction then anything ...Wink
