    Exactly It is fun if you do it rarely but if you do it often you'll lose everything and get depressed

    Gambling can be fun, I was going to put £10 on Leicester to win the league, I think the odds were around 70/1. Never did it in the end because people say it won't be worth it, well I wish I had now. I'd be £700 up. Would have made the end of the season more exciting too.

    Depends on how good you are at it and if you know when to stop. If you gamble and in the end win some money or even it and end up with no loss or very small loss then it is like a hobby and isn't really bad.

    If you end up like a gambling addict just losing more and more money, then it is bad. At least if you buy something with it like clothes, you actually buy useful stuff

    Trust me there always a line to cross gambling a unpredictable sometimes you win sometimes you lose some people end up greedy and lose everything, mum lost £1000 because she was greedy, atleast if you buy expensive clothes like £150 jumper it would make you look and feel better you could even sale it
