          Gambling Newlywed Shows How He Visited 8 Casinos In 3 States In 1 Day


          July 3, 2016

          Jim, a newlywed of a-year-and-a-half, admits he has a problem with gambling and has lost roughly $300,000 since he’s been married, and over $800,000 in the course of his lifetime. He has also lost cars and his business and is now unemployed and practically homeless.

          “I’m like a zombie. I can’t get away from it,” Jim admits of his gambling.

          He also confesses that he has lied to his wife about his whereabouts to hide his gambling – and that he told her that he had cancer and had to go in for treatment so he could spend a few weeks at the casino undisturbed.

          In the video above, Jim tells Dr. Phil how he can visit eight casinos in three states in one day.

          This episode of Dr. Phil, “My Newlywed Husband Lost Our Business, Gambled Away $300K, and is About to Lose His Family,” airs Wednesday. Watch more here.
