Stop gambling ads
Re “Millions lost in gambling ‘epidemic’” (News, 8/6). The way gambling is rammed down our throats by TV and radio advertising, it’s not a surprise gambling is rife.
The constant barrage during football game broadcasts alone is unbelievable. Gambling is made to look cool and something you should be doing to be part of the “in crowd’’. It’s too accessible. It’s about time we woke up to the impact it is having and ban gambling advertising. I know what a gambling addiction can do to a person and relationships. There is little difference between a gambling addict and a drug addict, always after where and how they get the next fix.
A gambling overdose may not kill you, but it can certainly ruin your life.
