Compulsive gamblers love the adrenaline rush. But, what most of us don't realize is that gambling addiction has a huge effect not only to the person who is involved but as well as to the country as a whole. Gambling craving is no joke, as it's estimated to cost the country as billions of dollars per year. More states are permitting lawful gambling and though the habit is fine in moderation and when done for fun, individuals who get addicted are doing harm to themselves and to others.
