The Mad thing is it was Paul Merson who identified Razor Ruddock had a drink problem and helped him get clean. Addiction comes for everyone :feelscryman:

Whether it is to subconsciously alleviate our own guilt by doing something good or distract ourselves from our own problems or just being good natured, I think many of us gambling addicts as such are often quick to help others.
