    Post Australia just wants to ignore :Australia?s pokies obsession.

    Lives ruined, families torn apart and staggering sums of money lost. But is this really an urgent problem, or just light entertainment?

    You know the consequences of your action, we are told from a very young age. Stop blaming and learn to admit YOU messed up.

    Pokies are for losers.

    I have no sympathy for those of us that don’t have enough self discipline and common sense to know when enough is enough.

    I wish I had have stopped sooner, before I lost the people closest to me, the loss of money is only a byproduct.

    Non profit clubs are fine. They offer services to the community with gambling money. It's the publicans the politicians have gifted endless streams of cash to get their tax cuts so only the pollies and their publican mates get profits from the misery.

    A lot of money comes from international visitors. And poker machines keep the clubs running. Alcohol is worse. People lose money and become a danger to society. If we are going to get rid of something, get rid of alcohol.

    One aspect of problem gambling that's never discussed, is the strong link between problem gamblers and family violence.
