Question by stockjunkie: How come gambling addiction, doesn’t get the same exposure as far as it bad effects as drugs or alcohol?
I know that it has to do w/ that fact that the States and cities make a ton of money on gambling, but i think they should be putting more money into treating the addiction.
It makes no difference that there’s a substance involved in drugs or alcohol. The public doesn’t realize that. The addiction is the part where you get high, whether it’s from alcohol, drugs, or gambling.
Answer by Hero From Yesterday
Because, alcohol and drugs are substances….gambling is an action…..
Substances are more related to health issues than activities themselves…
