Do any of you personally know any lottery winners?

Yes, they won 20 million or so and blew it all on drugs and ladies of the evening. The person frequented the convenience store I worked at part time. At the time they won they bought their tickets in SC as NC did not have a lottery. I do remember them telling me the day they found out they had a winning ticket they gave their wife divorce papers. About 2 years later I saw them holding up a sign "Will Work for Food".

     Do you know about Andrew Jackson, Jack, Whitaker? He was a millionaire before hitting the jackpot. He did not know how to say NO. His daughter and granddaughter both died of possible drug overdoses. A young teenage boy died of a drug overdose in one of Jack's homes.

    Jack Whittaker is a role model for what winners shouldn't do.

    I think what brought him down was his attitude that he had all that money and could do whatever he wanted. I think that's what brings down most lottery winners.
