    That's counter acted by the "Dumb Shit" spray the casino's use at the entrances. :)

    They are addressing the dumb shit spray with a new nose spray that shuts down endorphins. Specifically for gambling. :confused:

    Well hell, that is a pretty significant product if it does what it says. It may prove useful to other uncontrollable obsessions too. Holy Cow!

    Good heads up rkidalowski.

    Good point. If they could turn that into something that would keep people from overeating they could kill the rest of the diet industry and make a fortune.

    Well, there are drugs that they give you that have side effects that can addict you to gambling. I know I was taking two of them that had side effects that would addict you to gambling and sex!

    I have restless legs syndrome where I can't sleep at night because of it. When I went to my Dr. because of it I was told that she would give me the drug ropinirole but it had side effects and they were you could become addicted to gambling and sex. Well, my wife always goes to the Dr. with me and we both told her that we didn't mind the sex but the gambling was out because I gamble just about every day and I have to be able to walk away from the tables whether I'm winning or losing!

    The plan was that I would be giving a low dose of the drug and slowly adjust the drug to see how I was doing by taking it. Everything was fine for a while then it happened one morning I felt like a zombie and couldn't just walk away when I was losing. That morning I lost a bankroll and came home and threw away the drug!

    Then made an appointment with my Dr. I also stayed out of the casinos for over a month until the drug could get out of my system!
    When I went back to the Dr's I she asked what I did when that happened and when I told her that I threw the drug away she told us that it could have killed me by doing so!

    Ropinirole and the other drug that I took works with the dopamines in your brain that gives you pleasure. I now tell everybody to check the side effects on any drug that you take and make sure that you wean yourself off off any drugs that you are taking if they have any bad side effects on you!

    I remember when waking up in the morning "feeling stiff" was a good thing. Now just waking up. Just sayin.
