Say you’ve just had a very vivid dream about lottery numbers being picked that very day.  So much so you’re convinced that they are the numbers which will be picked that very day.  You wake only to be confronted by a very hungry child, your child, who is very very hungry.  You know there is not one scrap of food in the house, and no one is giving away anything to you.  You put your hands in your pockets in full knowledge that if there is no money in them you will still be getting some more money the following day.  When you bring your hands out again all you have is just enough money to either buy one single lottery ticket, or some food for your hungry child.  It hasn’t escaped your mind that if the lottery number come up then your child is unlikely to face being so hungry ever again.  You are that person.  What are your thought of the situation, and what would you do?

No, it is not like wrestling a gorilla, it is more like reality, that is feeding your family!

Anyone entering the fantasy world, would just receive the benefits of such greed, that is the death of both you or your family, unless there existed just such a pervasive system to provide for such idiots.

And, it seems it exists today, in the form of "food stamps", etc.!

"Food stamps" would have been spent for lottery ticket by them!Feeling is stronger than they are.This one is connected with feeling of personal safety:How much I need to be safe?(Till end of the world!)

Remember I said there was nothing, so there is no food stamps, just the money. Anyway how many places have food stamps?

OK, for this possible dilemma food stamps are not an option.

Anyone stupid enough to waste their money on gambling deserves to be poor. They'd have to be a really lousy parent to put the lottery before the needs of their family

What if this person has never gambled ever in their life, does that make them stupid and worthy of being poor in the same way, or do you believe the poorness of these people is somehow made justified for whatever has preceded these events? Maybe these people are sick of days where there is no food, and the chance of the lottery win and the implications of no more days without food seems all too tempting.

Does the buying of the lottery ticket put the family at real risk?

If you read above you will see that I asked what if this person has never gambled in their life so far, this doesn't seem to be the actions of someone suffering from an addiction, though as the original question is to those reading it you would have to ask yourself about addiction as that person is you. LOL

something that you can find everywhere!Analyses start from me,even if i have never been minus score on
credit cards,but people all around me are!One ticket money do not solve nobodies future!But if he spent all
the money from salary,that is other thing!In First case,he can change something,price is only one day more
starving!Second one is unforgivable cause he destroy lives of his family.He gambles!Big smile
