i dont like gambling at all, i like playing poker and its fun to throw a few quid in with mates but i dont take it seriously and would never go into a horse racing shop or even online with my card. Way too addictive and i have good experience on the subject, since my father had an addiction, and apparently is in a secure enough relationship now to buy tickets to chepstow for a weekend, any idea what that costs all inclusive? id say somewhere around the money he should have been giving to my mum for support as i cant help enough with a part time job.
thats the underside of it anyway im sure theres a lot of positives to throwing money away. sorry if im stronging it but its how i feel. Plus my nan wouldnt stop telling me how wrong it was when i was kid, yet i never noticed how much her and dad hated each other. Kids, much better investment, they take all your money and then resent you for it.
