Not neccessarily so. Plenty of people around here got encouraged by the banks to buy shares in the banks. It didn't end well.

Every piece of dirt that lands in court for preying on others is a gambling/alcohol/drug addict. Or some other excuse.

At 60 I've run out of patience. You make your choice and take your medicine. Which is why people love sport. No hiding on the pitch. No excuses.

Thankfully I don't gamble but you won't blow 5k on flags, drink, food or drugs in half an hour. Gambling is a massive yet silent addiction

It can be but there's a percentage of people out there who steal from anyone and everyone and then when found out they decide to come out as having a gambling addiction.
For me it's a much harder one to understand. I'm not dismissing it but I've come across one or two who scumbags who use this as their reason for horrible behaviour when they were never any better anyway

Replying To Breffni1969:  "Armagh, Derry, Dublin and Tipp and Galway in Hurling acc will double your money.
No bank will double your money over 2 days."
Maybe not but come Monday morning it's still there. No such thing as a sure thing.
