I figure gambling is one of those things where, if you haven't tried it, you probably don't "get" it. But once you try it a few times, who knows - you might find you really like it! You might find you enjoy it a lot!

When I pause to consider that my relationship with alcohol was once much as my current relationship with gambling, it is easy and painless to conclude that I am content to leave gambling in the category of "things I haven't tried much and don't get" instead of trying it until I "get" it. I believe it may be very fun. I believe cocaine may also be very fun. It is better for me personally not to check and find out.
