  I've spent the better part of the past 72 hours responding to supportive Facebook posts and private messages. All of these expressions of support and kindness are appreciated more than the writers will ever understand.
  However, the most important messages came from people who asked for help with their own gambling addiction. I've sent a lot of links to many people.
  If you think you may have a gambling addiction, please know you are not alone. It's estimated over 150,000 Oklahomans suffer from this addiction. Gambling addiction has the highest rate of successful suicide among all addictions including drugs and alcohol.
