Gambling, a Dangerous Game
By: Russell Wismer
I believe gambling is wrong and ruins lives. As you can see, I am against gambling. Gambling can waste money, be addictive, and lead to other addictions. Do the world a favor and consider not gambling!
Gambling can result in a loss of money. There is almost always a low chance of winning, yet people continue to waste money on gambling. One example of losing money from gambling is placing a bet for some amount of money and losing the bet, resulting in a loss of money. Another example of losing money from gambling is buying a scratch card. You might buy a scratch card for an amount of money and not win. That would be a loss of money. Lastly, one example of losing money from gambling is going to a casino and playing some games. Games cost money to play, and if you lose those games, you lose that money. Gambling often results in a loss of money, so please don't gamble!
