Common terms heard about people with gambling problems:
"Loser"
"Liar"
"Degenerate"
"Addict"
etc.

This all increases shame and stigma. We need to separate a person's identity from their behaviors. - Dr. Lori Rugle https://t.co/xPIurPhzQO #PGSseries

They deleted it. We didn't miss it. Isn't it about time we talk about how gambling is advertised in the U.S.? https://t.co/3I76UnRkfn

53% of misused opioids are obtained from family/friends.
