One of my vices is gambling.  Back in March of 2000 was the first time I was unemployed and I was depressed.  I started playing scratch off and won $500 on one ticket.  That fueled my obsession to play more.  I would spend hoping that I hit the jackpot and not have to work anymore.  That lasted for awhile, but I stopped for awhile.  Then I started working and didn’t spend on lottery tickets.  Then I went back to playing just so I don’t have to work.  Wishfully thinking because I know the odds are designed against the player.  I tried casinos but lottery tickets are more convenience and don’t cost as much.
