Kimberly was introduced to lottery tickets at the young age of 5. Every day after school her father would walk into the closest gas station and Kimberly would help him place money into the lottery machine. Her father would also look at her, wink, and say, “This time is it honey, we are going to be rich.” Unfortunately they never scratched off more than a dollar or two, but it was fun and exciting. As Kimberly got older, she honored her father’s tradition and played the lottery machines, daily. At first she said she was doing it for the memories but deep down it was much more than that. There was a thrill of playing the machines and it was what Kimberly lived for. Slowly, she spent more and more on those tickets, until the day she realized she had spent her entire paycheck.
