You know you've got a gambling problem when...

- You're at your wife's godson's graduation (from junior high) party in a neighborhood tavern and you see they've got a "Dodge City" 'video poker' machine from 1988 that is clearly 'for entertainment purposes only' but you put in a dollar and play a few hands anyway.

- You note that the paytable for the machine was 10/8

- You don't win a single hand and thus classify the machine as 'tight'.

- You get upset that you weren't comped a drink while playing.

You wake up at 3 AM and hear a Black Eskimo singing about seals.

You've got a gambling problem when... the first thing you ask your parents about their Alaskan cruise is "how is the casino?" LOL

Oh, yeah... the food and scenery was nice, too, I guess! LOL
