Can or should an addict work in the gambling industry? : Gambling Addiction Forum
I have a huuuuuge dillema. Gambling destroys lives, it has near destroyed mine. I have been at rock bottom more than once now. And I have very few ways to get out.
I currently have a job, and this job allows me to pay my monthly expenses and to pay my debts. This job has also made me very unhappy, I feel powerless, I hate my colleagues and it’s part of the reason I started gambling again. I really wanted to get out, and I gambled hoping to reach the riches and be able to quit.
I also know this company is running out of money and at most I have one year of employment left, not enough to pay my debts. This company is in the financial industry.
I have done interviews at several companies in my area and all pay ~50%-60% of what I’m earning now, not enough to live and pay my debts. So I have no way out. Except:
I have new opportunity, I would be the lead of an online cryptocurrency casino. Me and two partners have found two investors who are each willing to invest in this project. It will be legitimate with licenses and everything. It would also pay myself a significant salary for the next 2 years. But it is a online casino. The exact kind that made me lose all my money.
Should I, on an ethical level, even do this? And I decide to do it, how can I prevent myself from ever gambling again. I think I can make sure I have no way of gambling, no creditcards etc, no way to actually deposit money in a casino.
My justification for taking this opportunity is that I need it and that there is plenty of people who don’t have an gambling addiction. Is this still wrong?
