Sir Charles on Life After Gambling

by May 29, 2009

Let’s just say this current lifestyle of his won’t last forever: “Barkley said he continues to drink but does not drive. He said he hasn’t gambled. ‘I like to drink…I haven’t missed the gambling to be honest with you. I needed to take a break from gambling because I was losing,’ he said. ‘Nobody ever complains about gambling when you’re winning. I’ve never heard a guy say, Hey, I’m winning too much money, I’m going to quit gambling.’ But my gambling had gotten to be a problem. I said I was going to take some time off,’ he said. Barkley said he has missed making bets during football season and likely would gamble again someday. ‘I’m going to start gambling again whenever I get ready, to be honest with you. I like to gamble,’ he said.”
