I think it will be a pretty interesting conference. Though that may say more about my nerdyness than the event itself.

Arrow Female addictive behaviour

The Manchester Evening News has a report today on yesterday's conference.


Women at risk from gambling
http://www.manchestereveningnews.co....from_gambling_


Women punting online looks to have been a major topic.


"Another problem gambler admitted she would spend whole nights on the internet, and quickly pull up an auction site page to hide what she was doing, if anyone became curious."


It's not surprising really considering that females seem to exhibit signs of addictive behaviour in a number of different aspects of everyday life - shopping, eating and smoking are three that come to mind.


Is Ian right there, or as a man perhaps I simply don't understand


Ian

I wouldn't believe it if I had not been there

Ian I was at the conference and this is entirely unrepresentative of the balanced informed and largely positive discussion that took place.
In fact I watched the Manchester Evening News photographer and journalist leave half way through the day.

Sensationalistic, inaccurate and lazy, lazy journalism. They are an absolute disgrace.

The research (that by way) did not state in anyway that women where more prone to gambling addiction, was based upon a sample of 25 people, the researcher herself drew no conclusions from it due to the early stages and small sample size. It is amazing how someone’s words can be so blatantly misconstrued!
