The Temptation of Las Vegas – For Those With a Gambling Addiction – what is gambling

Many people will choose to take a trip to Las Vegas for their yearly vacation. Known as “sin-city”, Las Vegas is filled with gambling, good eating, drinking, shows, and great shopping. There is a lot to do in Las Vegas, and one could truly never get bored there.Today I was working out at the gym and there was a documentary on this city. They were showing a man going from hotel to hotel. This showed all of the interior of different casinos.. flashing lights.. and all. It certainly looked glamorous, and it reminded me of how much fun I had there. I had some great times in Las Vegas.. and I dropped a lot of money there as well.Sin City is definitely a cool place. It is only cool, however, for people that can gamble recreationally, socially, and in a controlled way. Las Vegas can be a very dangerous place for those who have a gambling addiction and it is the worst place he or she can go on vacation.It is amazing how glamorous these casinos look on the outside. What they do not show is that 70 percent or more of the money that these casinos make are from people who suffer from gambling addiction. They also do not show all of the suicides that happen in Vegas, in addition to the drugs, crime, and prostitution.I always have to remind myself of these things when I see a commercial about Vegas…. or Atlantic City.Which is playing on my TV.. right now
