Alright. I'd like to start out by saying that nothing she is currently doing (gambeling wise) is a problem. My problem comes from that fact that I'm not sure where it is going to one day end up. Alright so. My girlfriend has worked at a gas station for the passed few months until she found a new job. And it seems that at least 3/5 nights she comes home with over ten dollars worth of scratch tickets. She justifies it to me by saying she never goes out so this is her way of having a little fun. Fair enough. I can understand that. But at the same time, she'll get her paycheck, pay her bills that she needs to then the rest seems to go to lottery tickets. Now this isnt really a problem up until four days before her paycheck comes and she has no gas, no food, and no money. Then it's all eyes on me, or her mom. And her mom is the real reason for my concern. That woman GAMBLES. I mean rediculously. But she has a fantastic job and can afford to blow a couple hundred dollars a week at the bar machines. My girlfriend cant. And it seems whenever she is out of money, and cant get it out of me, she'll run straight to her mom who will give her the money no questions asked. Now my gf just started her new job where she will be making a good amount of money. But my concern is she wont be using this money to get ahead on her bills, but rather on further gambeling. I plan on moving in with her in two months when her lease is up on her place. Which is why my concern is growing. She isnt nearly at the point where its a full blow problem. I just want to know if I'm being crazy, if I should just let her have her fun and it probably wont go any further than a few scratch offs. Or if my concern is legit and I should take more drastics steps. And yes I've talked to her about it, like I said she rationalized it as her spending money instead of going out.
