Gambling is promoted on TV, Social Media Sites, Radio and many other places.

Many people find gambling very addictive and this not only affects the gambler, but can affect their relationships with partners and families. This form of addiction can be just as harmful as Alcohol, Smoking or Drugs. Gambling addictions can cause family break ups, loss of residence, being deceitful and even suicide. Many more issues can arise from this form of addiction. This is a mental health issue encouraged by the betting giants for their own greed. Advertising should be restricted to prevent many more people becoming addicted and potentially lives being ruined. This is a serious matter and I think gamblers would benefit from the Banks intervention, maybe in partnership with the government,  advertising standards agency and the betting companies to prevent them from spending all their money on a weekly or monthly basis. Maybe an option that you can agree with your bank apreventing your account from being used for gambling? 

I know how destructive this can be and have tried to help someone with this addiction  but to no avail. Let's prevent others from being sucked into a seemingly fun past time that could potentially destroy their lives and others around them.
