Recovering gambling addict recalls hitting bottom

Dave from Nassau County had been married and divorced three times by the age of 39 and he’d lost three jobs and nine ladies clothing stores he had inherited from his father due to his addiction to gambling. On New Year’s Eve, in 1976, he and a friend attended a Gamblers Anonymous meeting at a church in Long Beach and his life began to turn around. (Credit: Newsday / Yeong-Ung Yang)
