Getting Treatment For Gambling Addiction
One of my favorite books is New York: The City That Never sleeps by Donald Trump. In this very humorous book, Trump takes a look at the never ending politics and bureaucracy of New York and how it relates to business. It is quite entertaining, but I do wish that someone had done a better job of telling the story, because it is just too funny to be serious and it was obvious from the beginning that Mr. Trump was taking far too much credit for things that were actually the responsibility of others. The story is also very informative as well.
What I found interesting was that the New York State government tried to put a stop to what they considered to be excessive casino gambling games going on at the New York City Times Square location. Perhaps in hindsight, however, state and city leaders would also have been better off saving the Convention Center over and investing their money in other events rather than laying all of their profits into a single gambling establishment that pays nothing for the rental of property and yet pays millions in taxes annually. While there are legitimate businesses in New York City, paying taxes for the privilege of having a casino does not justify it to me. My belief is, and always has been, that casinos and gaming should be concentrated in places where people can gamble responsibly, away from the main attractions of New York City and its cosmopolitan elite.
So, what’s so fun about playing casino games in New York? The truth is that the atmosphere in a New York casino is uniquely different than a live casino. There are no pets, no noise, and definitely no annoying flies. What is so great about gambling in New York? The experience of gamblers, both professional and amateur, is unlike anything else.
For example, if a professional gambler entered a state of New York casino, and then chose to sit in a quiet corner and play at random chance, he or she could still observe the game and participate in it, without any of the noise, mess, or Odor that one experiences when participating in an online casino. While the odds are still stacked against them, they still have a better chance at winning than those who choose to gamble over the internet, where all of that noise drowns out the sound of a hard-luck wheel. The casino gambling experience in New York City gives these players the opportunity to enjoy the thrill of casino gambling at it’s best, surrounded by their own noise and distraction.
Professional gamblers can choose from a wide array of gambling games, such as baccarat, blackjack, slot machines, roulette, craps, Pai Gow, and even craps, thanks to the many live dealer shows on New York City’s television stations. While these dealer shows are not necessarily “real” gambling, they do offer some of the best opportunities for gamblers to learn about the odds and betting patterns used in games like blackjack, craps, and roulette. In addition to watching the games themselves, the television cameras will often show the reaction of players to the dealer’s instructions, showing exactly what cards the dealers are holding and how those hands are behaving on the cards. This allows gamblers to practice their own strategies and to see what kind of cards and/or bets are working when they are playing. In many cases, the television camera will also show the reaction of other players to the same dealer’s actions, which can give gamblers valuable insight into how to plan their own strategies.
Although New York City is home to many beautiful buildings and shopping malls, and although many of the people who live in this region have been known to suffer from some form of gambling addiction, it is important to remember that gambling addiction does not have to involve money at all. Gambling addiction is simply a mental habit that can be treated and overcome. New Yorkers have been doing so successfully for years, and if you have the desire to treat yourself from a gambling addiction, you just need to reach out. Visit a local clinic or a doctor, and ask to speak with someone about the options that you have as a gambler and how you can go about getting treated. With support from family and medical care in tow, you can overcome your gambling problem, beat the blues, and find a lifelong career devoted to beating your addiction to gambling.
