Teens Addicted to Gambling?

Is it possible for teens to become addicted to gambling?  Yes, it is very possible!  Gambling is one type of addiction that is not mentioned very often.  We hear about all other kinds of addictions related to alcohol and other drugs, among many other addictions, but I thought it would be useful to bring awareness to this important topic. According to www.kidshealth.org, "For some people, gambling can become as serious an addiction as drugs, tobacco, or alcohol."  This is a very real addiction and it can be very stressful to have a family member or friend with this addiction.
