Hi! This is a really good topic and I thought it was little bit similar to mine! I just wanted to suggest perhaps you could write about the not only the addictive qualities of gambling but also the reward pathway that motivates it! Perhaps you could discuss the neurological pathways associated with the lottery pursuit.

Hi! I just read through your chapter and I thought you might find the following journal articles interesting :) The first follows lottery winners in a longitudinal study and discusses a model of cognitive dissonance in relation to deservedness of winning. Usually people don't feel like they don't deserve the money, but over time they adapt and fully enjoy their winnings. I thought it might be useful under the "positive impacts" emotional section
The second article discusses the "wealth shock" associated with winning the lottery, and uses a model to explain the long/short term effects on happiness.
