It's not an 'act'

A few weeks ago I called a friend of mine.

Her husband answered. He said she was at the casino.

She is often at the casino.

I was thinking about how sad that is...for him...for her..for them....and I reflected to when I was doing the same thing....sometimes staying out all night long...coming home just in time to get him off to work and the kids off to school....or sneaking away for small bits of time here and there, throughout the weekend...never sitting still....spending any time just 'being' with them.

I was thinking about how glad I am that I don't gamble any more.

Because....when I gamble, it is not an 'act'.

It is a way of life.
