"Fell off the wagon" is an expression used by or of alcoholics for when they go back on the booze after quitting for a while. Sounds like he's a gambling addict, and has been trying to quit, but has started again. If you loan him the money, it will just enable that.
Yup, this exactly. Not just enable it, but accelerate his power dive into hell. He'd have ripped through that money in less than an hour and probably ended up three times as much in debt. The tragedy is he doesn't look at it that way.

I feel bad for the guy; he'd better get a handle on it quick before it completely ruins him.
