Hello Recovery Friends and Welcome New Visitors,
I happened to see a new visitor come by my blog and he was reading an old blog post on my personal recovery blog. It was way over a year ago and got me thinking of how far I have come as a writer, author, blogger and recovery advocate. So I thought I would re-share this post, as it deals with a question that I know everyone has thought about before. I would love to read your comments and thoughts about this, so don’t be shy! And NO, I haven't had a gambling relapse! LOL. It is a 'Dream' I think everyone has had, and we all have to have some sort of a dream in life right?
Well this dream and question has been a dream for MANY. . . .
“OK, You’ve just won $1 billion dollars in your States Lottery. You do not have to pay tax on your winnings. What would YOU do and how would you spend the money?"
Now of course many of you know already I don’t Gamble . . . .
And I don’t want to be a “Debbie Downer” for all the rest of you fabulous people who enjoy spending a little for a chance at your piece of a fortune. Sadly, the odds of winning a lottery win-fall is so great that you would most likely have a better chance at getting hit by lighting, then you would winning a “State Lottery Draw Jackpot” . . .
Powerball officials say, “What are your chances of winning? A quick look at the Powerball website tells you the probability of winning the jackpot is 1 in 175,223,510. To see where that number comes from, imagine purchasing every number combination.”
