What's interesting to me is that I'm an alcoholic, I love gambling when I go on my Vegas trips, but somehow never developed a gambling addiction.
There are casinos and card rooms much closer to me, I could go whenever I want but I don't.
If I win big I'll stop playing right away. I once hit a royal flush playing video poker and won $1000 off a $1 bet. Stopped gambling for the rest of my trip and treated myself to some exquisite meals and shopping.
It doesn't make sense to me.
