Never gamble with an autistic opponent
The person has committed illegal acts such as forgery, fraud, theft, or embezzlement to finance gambling. Comment Post Comment Your name. While the research on this rapidly evolving field is valuable, there are some important limitations to the findings. There's also some debate about people who don't decide to stop gambling completely, but merely to limit or put clear parameters on where, with whom, under what circumstances, and how much they allow themselves to gamble - and whether this is a safe and acceptable outcome. Of course, the main focus in therapy is always on the client and his or her needs, but therapists' own subjective experiences can be an essential factor in bringing about the desired change.
Autistic, ADHD Kids and Addictive Gaming
Video game addiction is rapidly gaining support as a legitimate issue, and a University of Missouri in Columbia study has revealed it may be related to conditions such as autism spectrum disorder and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder ADHD. While most people think of addictions in terms of substances, behaviors such as gambling or even shopping can lead people into compulsions just like alcohol or drugs.
Understanding the basics of addictive gaming and what the recent study found helps parents—particularly those of kids already struggling with psychological issues—determine whether a gaming hobby is really as harmless as it seems. Video game addiction essentially works like most other behavioral addictions.
Previous research has indicated that children with ADHD are much more likely to display signs of problematic video game use than kids with typical development, and those with autism have more difficulty disengaging from games when they start playing them. ADHD is typified by problems with impulse control, hyperactivity and retaining focus, whereas children on the autism spectrum have difficulty with social interactions and communication, and usually a have repetitive pattern of interests.
They asked parents of children with the conditions as well as some with typical development about their video game use, the types of games played, whether they had consoles in their rooms and the severity of their symptoms. There were roughly equal numbers of each of the three groups of children studied, although only about 50 of each, making the study relatively limited in sample size.

But I went through an interesting phase with gambling a few years back and thought that I would share the story.
Apologies for it being a little long, I don't really know how to do brief stories if you haven't already guessed. When I was posted for work in Slovenia a few years ago I had a colleague who had a serious gambling addiction. He won some, lost some - but mostly lost. He was an extremely intelligent fellow, high up in the 99th percentile for IQ I would estimate. He was Palestinian originally, good guy, charming, a bit of a womaniser, and a little too "blunt" at times in the way he spoke to people.
He liked to play roulette, and any time we went out after work for drinks he would be sitting there twitching and obviously itching to hit the small local casino. I joined him a couple of times and blew relatively small amounts of money just for fun. One day he had blown all of his cash.
The findings sharpen worries about the persistence of the east coast shortage and look set to strengthen the case for LNG imports into the south-east, despite scepticism by some gas buyers. Queensland's coal seam gas reserves were written down by petajoules last year, more than all the gas estimated in the Cooper Basin, according to the annual reserves estimate by consultancy EnergyQuest, released exclusively to The Australian Financial Review.
The country's total gas reserves on a proven plus probable basis fell 4 per cent between December and February , down by petajoules from , PJ to , PJ. As the reduction in reserves was more than the actual production in that time, the reserves replacement ratio fell into negative territory, meaning Australia failed to replace the reserves it produced. EnergyQuest chief executive Graeme Bethune said significant additional sources of gas supply are needed, with LNG imports — as proposed by two rival projects by AGL Energy and Andrew Forrest-backed Australian Industrial Energy — looking an obvious part of the solution as they would avoid the pitfalls of large-scale government-directed curbs on LNG export contracts.
He said the shrinking reserves mean the east coast has two gas challenges, the risk around reserves for long-term LNG contracts with buyers in Asia, and the insufficient investment in supply of gas for the domestic market. Others such as Credit Suisse energy analyst Mark Samter have also made the case for LNG imports, arguing an import terminal can be set up relatively cheaply and easily, and so is the only option for a swift injection of new gas. Qenos, a major ethylene manufacturer, has meanwhile backed a potential pipeline from Western Australia as a preferable solution to LNG imports in the hope of avoiding a linkage between local gas prices and Asian LNG prices.
But EnergyAustralia, another major gas buyer, signalled it would consider buying through an LNG import terminal, saying that "all new sources of gas are welcome". Dr Bethune said LNG imports are "cheaper, quicker and far more flexible" than building a pipeline from WA and noted that both Argentina and Egypt, which export gas, both increased domestic supply by importing LNG.
