Title: Is Gambling addiction a disease?
Post by: kryptqnick on September 07, 2016, 09:34:29 AM
I am not really a gambler but I heard about people who can't quit it and keep losing lots of money. Do you think the attitude to gambling addiction should be the same as to drug addiction?
Should the government forbid gambling and treat somehow those who are addicted?
Or maybe it should be left up to an adult? I mean, should people decide on their own whether they need to gamble or not.
What do you think?

to ban something does not work. even in prisons are the drugs for example.
think it should be classified as a disease, such as alcoholism, and that there should be support to get.

.....

Gambling addiction are easier to cure rather than drug addiction
To cure the addiction, they need family support who keep consistent to tell him about the risk of gambling

...

....

Some country are really restrict about gambling and decide to ban any gambling site to protect their civilian
For example : PrimeDice are being banned on Singapore if I'm not mistaken

It's not a disease but gambling can ruin lives. You're not going to physically suffer from a gambling addiction but there is help out there for those who can't control their gambling habits.

No, because it won't kill people just like drugs. At least, not directly. And gambling is easier to stop, not like drug addiction who needs a rehabilitation to stop it.

Indeed gambling addiction is a serious disease because it have so many side effects which can destroy our life, from my point of view it is very dangerous like to have addiction of drug because both have very difficult way to give up.

It's a disease ,but this occurs like addiction in a drug but gambling is also in the state of mind which if it is hyper addiction you will no longer know it's wrong ,cause the only thing that sinks in your mind is how or where you will get a money for you to gamble again even selling of all things that you have .this disease really needs to be brought in a mental physician expert .

No no man banning the gambling is a really bad idea.I really enjoy gambling and i am not the one who is addicted to the gambling.And there are many other who are not addicted.So only because of those who are getting addicted to gambling,then banning the gambling for every one is a really bad idea.
Users must are the one who are responsible for it and they should be careful in this.

I dont think that gambling addiction is a disease, as it is curable and one more point is at some point if he lost everything then what will he do nothing. But drug addiction is a disease, as it enters in your body and controls your mind, for that you have to go for rehabilitation centers to get cured. Gambling addiction can be cured if the addicted wanted to leave and his friends and family supports it.

Gambling and  drug addiction is somewhat the same since you are addicted to it  but  the difference in drug  addiction would  definitely destroy your brain and  your  body together  with your life in gambling  it could  possibly  happen also but not as severe  on drug addiction. Gambling addiction is  trully a disease because once you get hooked into gambling  its hard to stay away from it.

Post by: doomistake on September 07, 2016, 11:30:41 AM
You can call it a disease though because it won't leave your body unless you do something to remove it or to cure it. Gambling is very addictive because it involves money which is the thing we need to survive in this world and it becomes really addictive when you start to win and win everyday but not really everyday, because Christmas is not everyday. But I think the most part of it that makes people not to quit gambling is that they want to take back their money that they lose on it. They continuously do it until they get back what they've lose and it's like a do until loop. Do gambling until you win or get back what you've lose to it.

I'm thinking the same about this its not a sickness or something, I even think its just a state of mind on how you are thinking.
The most are stopping after they are knowing what they are doing.

For me gambling is considered disease because you cant control yourself anymore and you need help to be able to overcome that addiction. also it can ruin your life and your relationship to your family if you dont pay attention.

well gambling addiction does exist and many are affected by it and are losing all their life savings on it. but i don't think it is anything like drug addiction because drugs will also bring some kind of physical need for it.

also there are some governments that have already banned gambling but that never works. i think it is up to the people themselves to learn how to not get addicted to gambling, and it is not rocket science either.

I accepted that mostly people when they play gambling than they become addictive person, and it is like a disease and in this way they forget that what is gambling and behind the scene it is fun and enjoyable thing but they never taste about it, and only they want to play and they don't care they win or lose, only play again and again. It is a kind of addictive person, but i am lucky and also i am not a good gambler but i like gambling and play it only for fun.

i think it can be said as a disease,its like drug addiction or alcohol addiction, but it can be cure, forbidding gambling is not going to be effective, as we can see there is a lot way to surpass the rules, for example using vpn, so i think the right thing to do is to cure the gambler, this need support and cooperation from family and friends

I Don't think so cause gambling won't even kill you or damage you physically but it can ruin your life . Drug Addiction is a completely another level than gambling addiction which has a higher chance of getting cured.

No is not a disease you are crazy, I think that its just something in your life, most people are doing it for a period but after a while stop with it.
Gambling ruins a lot but its for sure not a disease otherwise it was forbidden in a lot more country's.

Even gambling is so bad way to spend life with it but it's not a disease anymore from my opinion because if we have self control than easily can give up there, it's not much dangerous as compare with addiction of drugs and alcohol, so that I am quite sure if we do it for fun than it's not a disease.

It's based on any person personal experience with gambling if someone want to get rich by overnight than it's worst than disease for greedy people, but for me it's okay to have fun with sports betting because I always do with my own limits and never exceed more than my bankroll for the day.

I think limiting amount of money one can gamble in a day/month might make gamblers to lose less, for this to happen something like global wallet(limit can be specified/applied here) can be made where a user will be able to gamble on multiple sites with just one account.(just my thought)

Gambling can sometime become addiction if the one who keep on playing doubling his betting on every loss he make. If you keep on winning for few times, you try to start playing with bigger size bets and soon loss all you have than to get those you have lost you even make bet bigger and loss more than what you have actually won before. So this keep on going untill ending up with no any left in hand to gamble.

It can become a addiction but not more than that in my eyes because its not something that really is making you sick or something, it can only let you lose a lot of money.
Gambling a lot is not good but its indeed not a sickness, I think some people are just overthinking the whole situation people are in.

There are many places in which gambling is illegal and about whether or not gambling is a disease like a drug addiction, I will think that is not the same, with drug addiction you have a physical dependence on a substance while in gambling this is not a case, I will probably call it and obsession instead, but I think these are just technicalities, both persons need professional help, the drug addicted and the gambler.

Well for first, almost people playing for the gambling, there always talking about all cause "Money" not for fun. when people gamble and win, not to be satisfied to that already in get. When people gamble then lost, will things wanna take back the money with much tricks. but this are some a disease or be a bad habbits.

I think yes, I mean you just can gambling if you have money. And if you dont have money,
You will do everything to get a money for gambling. And it is dangerous, if you do the bad thing like steal the money or something like that, it is called you are addicted on gambling, and it is dease.

How can you think like this OP, disease is something which is producing inside the body and for which we have to go for treatment, gambling is not producing inside the body but it is inside the mind of a human being, greediness is the main reason of gambling, if a human being is satisfied with what ever they are earning then their wont be necessary to gamble. so first they have to be ready to leave gambling.

Well for me gambling addiction is not just simply a disease but it comes worst as syndrome. Yes, that is my opinion when it comes worst, because it is really hard to stop if someone is going to get addicted with it. And that is the cause of their addiction for retrieving their loses and thinking that they are able to get it again but instead they are just losing again.

It's a Disease. I think.  A mental disorder. Officially classified by APA (American Psychiatric Association) as an impulse-control disorder.
Like kleptomania and pyromania.
But I think it's also like addiction to drugs,cigarettes,alcohol. It affects the brain which results to dependence. It's because of the 'rush'/'high'. 

Drugs = Dopamine
Cigarette = Nicotine
Alcohol = Dopamine, Endorphins
Gambling = stimulates the Amygdala (one of the main centers that control emotion ) (impulse-control is suppressed)

Quote
Do you think the attitude to gambling addiction should be the same as to drug addiction?
Hmm. More like alcohol and smoking addiction.
Quote
Should the government forbid gambling and treat somehow those who are addicted?
It is being treated. I doubt the government can make gambling totally illegal like drugs. More like imposing strict rules and more taxes like for alcohol and cigarettes.

Isn't it ultimately decided by us in the end? To gamble, to quit, to seek help. It's all up to us anyway.

Gambling will surely affect your physical condition too. It is not true that addiction of gambling will not have any impact over your body and mind. The stress you will face during gambling life will not only disturb social life but also personal and physical as well. Gambling addiction is mental disease and have deeper effect which seems at later points.

I think we cannot call it as a disease, as disease come without the willing of the person, while addiction comes in willing of the person, the person know well that he is losing his money while he remain addicted to gambling and still he do not withdraw from there and spend each of his bit in gambling in the hope that he will be rich with gambling one day.

I guess it is not a disease, but it is a habit that, as a man addicted to cigarettes or drugs. it could have to be stopped, but it was very difficult because it's very unusual he did. maybe it is a kind of dependency, because maybe they always want to play gambling whenever they have money, but I guess it can not be categorized as a disease

But there is some treatment about this sickness psychiatrist is one of the doctor can help to give some recommendations..

Call it a disease,  a disorder,  whatever.   It's a very real problem with the reward pathway in the brain.  There's a line you cross, and once you cross it you can't go back.  It's the line past which an alcoholic can't just have one beer again.  And it's the line past which a gambling addict can't safely frequent a casino.

I don't think gambling addiction is considered a disease because if it is, then gambling addicts should have just taken medicines to become no longer addicted to it. Gambling addiction is on your mind, only discipline and control with the help of the people around you can free you from your addiction. People might be able to explain this using science but focusing your addiction into something else might significantly help.

Addiction to gambling and drugs I think the same. Because a person who is addicted to gambling can do unlawful things such as stealing to get money and used for betting. The government forbids people to gamble because it's one of the reasons because it can be very dangerous and including a prohibited act. Need guidance if about a man already very severe addiction in gambling.

No I do not think you are right about this, gambling is mostly for a short time period addicted and after that stops, with drugs its a whole other story if you are asking me.
Drugs are bad for your health and its also that you need more money for it most of the times.
Gambling addiction does not have to cost a lot but you can be still addicted to it, gambling addiction is also something the most people will have for a short time and than get over it.

It's always different for some people as based on their personal experience and everyone have their own opinions about this, in case of addiction nothing can be worse more than gambling, but I think if we are going with some limit than it should be fine there.

Actually gambling is not bad thing, it is really enjoyable and good thing but only when you never become addictive and play it only for game, But when we lose that point and we want mustly earn from gambling and play it in daily routine life than it become addictive for us. I am saying it because i am gambler but i am not addicted.

This is the same as asking if drinking alcohol is a disease or not. Or if doing anything that can be potentially addictive should be considered a disease. As you should see, this makes absolutely no sense and is a flawed concept. The disease is only a disease if it makes the person's life a mess. Not everyone suffers from gambling addiction.

I am not really a gambler but I heard about people who can't quit it and keep losing lots of money. Do you think the attitude to gambling addiction should be the same as to drug addiction?
Should the government forbid gambling and treat somehow those who are addicted?
Or maybe it should be left up to an adult? I mean, should people decide on their own whether they need to gamble or not.

Nah people who just play gamble every day are addicted on gambling website where they gonna make profit or lose their money always there are two type of people the one who played smart and the one who played greedy and there are two benefits of that of course if you play in smart way then you can win profit and if you play greedy you know what the result is.
nothing can do by the government but they can limiting people madness in gambling by set some rules.
people who are gamble and causing something dangerous like a suicide you can call it a disease.
gambling are built for business.
but people make it serious as an income source which it's wrong !

What I may infer from the replies is that mostly people think gambling is a disease, but it is easier to cure it than drug addiction. I understand that drugs influence human organism physically, so they really cause some changes in it. Gambling doesn't influence people in such a way. But it still influences minds, doesn't it? A person feels like he/she can win and keeps losing. Maybe, drugs change the mind even less than gambling, because they rather effect the body. Then what is more harmful: mental addiction or physical one?

no i do not think so. gambling is not addiction is not like drug addiction, there is a big difference between the two. to me if you are addicted to gambling but you do gambling in a limit or just manage it from your pocket money there it is not harmful but if you are doing gambling using most of your pocket money then it is not right and my be more worst than drug addiction.

Addiction to the drugs can causing a death but it is not if you addicted to gamble.
So basically a gambling addicts have less illness than drugs addicts.
But i consider both an addiction  to gambling and drugs as a serious disease , why? You will never stop gamble once you start it.

I think that its addiction will disease can be too but its addiction to me people who are greedy enough to win are the addicts one's all they are chasing is money nothing else they don't really mind what will happened in the end of the game and its also a disease because the game itself has contained many people in the past few years by still one cure to finish that disease find another hobby to forget gambling. They make their own decision unless they are not married its okay but if they do... you know what >.<

Well, it is not a disease, if you can control it well, but I guess that would be the case if you're really addicted gambling and could not control it. it could make life even threatened. although many say it is not a disease but it is a hobby, but the effect of a given when you're really hooked just like people who have diseases. well, you just need to control yourself to avoid it

Its a disease bro! disposition regarded as adversely affecting a person or group of people. Gambling has a group of people that has the disease they don't need help to the doctor but to the psychologist to ease up your addiction or you can control yourself find another hobby to begin with play sports so that you can ease that disease very day people are playing gambling including me but still i manage to ease up my gambling habits i'm very greedy but now i ease up the disease :D

I think you are wrong. If a person is addicted to gambling he can't limit himself on playing or on putting his money. The worst scenario is sometimes that person tends to borrow money or take out loans just to gamble. That's addiction, you can't manage/limit yourself on playing. For me, gambling addiction and drug addiction are somewhat the same, just in different reason and situation. Both need a help of a counselor/therapist or whatsoever to retrain people's brains to reduce/stop the urge to gamble or to use drugs.

The Gambling addiction is not a disease it is just a habit. We will addict many bad habits in that gambling also one. So for this, we can not call The Gambling is a disease. But it will depend on people how they treat gambling. The main thing is if we control our emotions means the gambling will not make any changes in our life.

When people got addicted to gamble he/she will behave like non a normal person. As I know from my real life experience, a person that got this problem will be very lazy. They wont do any other works except gambling itself. Thats why, people that got addicted to gamble mostly are jobless! So, in my own opinion, addicted to gamble is a disease and they need to be cured by theyself or by people around them!

In my own opinion, gambling addiction is something like mental health disorder or a brain disease where people always think about it and want to do it anytime anywhere and forget other important things. We should not be addicted whatever the reason is, because it will be so hard to stay away once we get addicted to it.

If the gambler is gambling again and again and do not care for his/her future and for their wealth and do not plan for the timing for gambling and playing all the time of the day and do not care for their family also then it is addiction and and it is expected that this person is sick of addiction.

Gambling is like a disorder but the way to describe is an addiction to some people because they are not aware that it could be a disorder. This is lack of control that is why some are addicted, however a disorder because it is all in the mind and everyone could able to control it if they want to stop it. There are ways and you even need a psychiatrists on this one. Just you need to control your mind when you are playing and focus right away.

Addiction is not a disease...It has something to do with your brain, and you won't take medicine to cure it, only therapy and advise from a professional...

Yes, anything affects our 'normal' life must be a disease. Gambling addictions has the characteristics of deviating our initial gambling plans. Gambling addition is somewhat is a cancer to healthy gambling life. It starts slowly and kills all the plans and profits.

Seek the help from your family or the professional.
Interestingly, this disease will be cured by our family members itself that too without any medicines, just love and affections are more than enough.

if its something wrong with our brain then that person is need to go to therapist and needs to be ask for help so that person will not just thinking about playing gambling. i think the therapist will do it and will help that guy as gambling addiction is not like a disease and its need to reprogram our brain.

There are some of government that banned gambling but it could access through online on the other hand there are country that legalize gambling, so no matter where you live, it's your choice whether to try gambling or not but remember the consequence of being addicted, don't try it in the first place.

I'm considering it also as a disorder because just like those people who are becoming addicted with illegal drugs, their brains are being controlled by that drug and its making them look for it for each day, they will not stop and get contented unless they will take any dosage of that drug. The same thing in gambling, if a person gets addicted with and have that situation then its not normal anymore and it needs to be cure.

Gambling addiction just like other things addiction works like disease for human beings. What a disease actually is a state where senses and mental health are not corresponding well in rhythm. When a person is addicted to gambling his abilities of taking right decision or seeing things well stop working under the light of this definition gambling addiction is disease.

The lack of knowledge and experience can make a person easily be addicted to gambling. They usually have the feeling that they can be able to win big money after gambling although they have lost money for several times. The most important thing in gambling is to keep your temper as stable as you can and do not continue to gamble if you realize that a large amount of money has been lost. Once people are addicted to gamble, it is hard to quit gambling. thus, i think gambling addiction has some similar point with disease

Yup for the addicted person the gambling is big disease, and it will not go very soon, it will take one lifetime to come out from this disease. That is why my suggestion doesn't play gambling to make money, Don't put more money in this gambling, Just treat gambling is a game and enjoy the game that's it.

I really think they are similar to diseases. I had a cousin before but he is gone now. From childhood he already started gambling. Street gamblngs which childrens and teenagers play. When my auntie found out aBout it, she tried to stop him but he never stopped. My auntie started to beat him and threatened him to be beaten again but he promised over and over again not to do it again but he was just lying. We found out he continued on gambling. And he stopped it when he was already matured.

But I believed that the moment you put your first bet, even for entertainment and fun will eventually lead someone to be come addicted. So it doesn't matter if you place 1 USD or 1000 USD in the beginning. The system will suck you up and 9 out 10 people will become addicted.

So yeah its like a disease, slowly creeping into our system that we cannot stay away or its very difficult difficult to quit. And I advise not to really put your self into gambling.

Gambling can become an impulse control disorder when you can't handle the urge to play. Despite the negative effects it can bring about, your motivation to gamble is still on a high level to the point that no one can stop you from doing it. In my opinion, there is nothing really wrong with gambling however, when it is causing problems then that's when one should be alarmed. It does not only affect the mental health but as well as financial circumstance and your social stability. When someone can't control their gambling habits, I think they should seek help to assure their own safety and most importantly their loved ones.

Yeah, I strongly agreed with your statement above, in short, we as a gambler we need to have a self-limit or just having a mindset when you stop or continuing in gambling. Yes although gambling is not bad but abusing it makes you mental ability addicted and that is hard to back in a normal life without chasing in gambling. Much better you control your gambling habit while it is early than it turns to addiction.

I was once a gambling addict but i still manage to control my self out of addiction , that is why i can say that its not hard to quit on gambling not just on gambling but almost anything that can make you an addicted person. im also a gamer ( an addicted gamer ) because i always play it everyday and sometimes i forgot to eat and to sleep early because of it but then again i was able to stop that addiction because i realize that my life will be miserable if i continue that bad habits. we can make a change if we are really willing.

I think that any addiction is a pathology. If a person can not control his desires and attraction to anything himself, he needs help from the side of the community. It is hardly possible to compare the game mania with drug addiction, since in the first case we deal only with a mental disorder, whereas in the second case, both with the mental and with the physical. But in the modern world, mental addictions become widespread. And the game one is one of them.

Precisely, gambling is a disease but of course it can still prevent or can cure if people realize the value of their money. Gambling is a game for entertainment but people keep on playing with lots of greed, and ended up with nothing if they can control their emotion I'm sure they will not get addicted on that.

Gambling is a fun entertainment, for that fun reason can make people gambling addicted. Believe it or not the symptoms of gambling addiction are not always easy to recognize. Gambling addicts are also known as compulsive gamblers because they can not stop after they start their action. When a gambling addict can not fulfill his desire, unstable emotional signs will come true. He will become irritable, moody, feel anxious and daydream about gambling and it is a sign of unstable emotion. If it is allowed to drag on then it will end up being depressed.

Every addiction do really have its own solution or cure.If you are a drug addict then theres a rehabilitation, if you are a gambler addict then you can just simply quit it without the need of help from others but if you cant do such thing then you would really need a psychiatrist. Any addiction can really be considered as a disease which its very hard to cure once it do already overcome to one self.

I agree.Gambling can only be stop if you know how to discipline yourself to leave gambling.Divert all your free time into making valuable moments with family and friends.Little by little you will be used to it and will start to leave gambling for good.Gambling addiction for me is just like a disease,if not treated,it will probably destroy all our assets and even investments as well.

In my opinion every addiction is a disease, the WHO recently labeled gaming addiction as a disorder so i believe that gaming addiction can also be labeled as a disorder as well on that front. Sometimes not even the strongest discipline can be able to help one get over the addiction.

Since that is already a gambling disorder, in my opinion,(whatever yours i respect too) yes it is already a disease that can be cured also if the beholder is willing to be transformed too. It is not literally a chronic disease, but a disorder of a human behaviour. This is normally happens to a person who have so much passion in gambling and not setting a limitations, he allows always his urge to keep pushing his will until he reaches the point of addiction that already uncontrollable. Maybe he is living a life with a lot of money to waste to, incorporated with uncontentment in life, it tends to addiction.

It is certainly nothing less than disease as once it gets infected to you, the person will tend to be found more in casinos or gamble a lot and eventually might lose a lot of money. This will have adverse effect on their health and other disease will also inturn might get added to it.

Gambling is basically not a disease but a kind of problem that needs a serious solution. If a person is addicted to gambling he usually disregard and put aside something important over it. To help a person who is addicted to gambling is not an easy task because it is a personal decision of the person if he really want to get out from it.

Why you need a serious solution if you keep invest on betting and choose the right games which you know more about the player or team. There is no problem at all.
If you are serious gambler and take investment as serious fund for your personal purpose and etc.
You need not to keep those of gambling activities. So guys like this should from gambling investments.

I agree and I donít think gambling is a disease but a psychological problem.

But for some though, people thinks gambling is a form of investment.

It is not literally the disease that we are talking about here, we are just describing gambling addiction is like a disease which is not good on every individuals, especially those addicted ones. Gambling addiction is a very bad psychological problem, not just that person could lose all of his money but he might also try to steal some money or use someone's money on his addiction, which might cause more problems if is not going to be cure or to think some solutions to quit this gambling addiction.

It is hard to convince someone who is addicted to gambling, he will not listen to you and his excuse would be it is his life and you should mind your own business, and if this gets bigger and bigger, that certain person could be in the worst scenario of his life that he could never imagine.

This is a complication because gambling is a problem and also as a disease. I do not understand why a gambler is willing to spend a lot of money and leave their family in order to play gambling. That is a strange thing and I think is something crazy. Under normal conditions we can still do a much better and useful job. In the world of digital currency is still a lot of work like Trading, mining and investing is much better than playing gambling!

It is common for people to go after easy methods of making money and gambling gives them false hopes of making money and fulfilling their dreams by displaying and promoting deals. Jackpots are also there to make people keep playing this game. After winning some money, people develop strong interest in this game and this is when there countdown starts for getting addicted.

For me yes. It can be likened to a disease. First it starts with trying and trying until you find your self coming and coming back again to the point that you could no longer stop it by yourself. This time it is now like a disease which need cure, therapy. This therapy could be making yourself busy with other things or starting with something that would catch your interest so you will be able to forget gambling.

To fully recover from this addiction, Yes indeed. as this type of addiction already created malfunctions inside our mindset, people who suffer from this activity really can't think properly and instead of trying to move away from the gambling house, they will keep pushing thinking that it is the easy way
to earn money, so it's really needed to have professional help when we see someone who suffered from deep gambling addiction to find cure to recover

Should the government forbid gambling and treat somehow those who are addicted?
Or maybe it should be left up to an adult? I mean, should people decide on their own whether they need to gamble or not.

So lets say it is really a disease where gamblers becomes an addict and cant help their want to gamble. But every sickness and disease has its own cure. Its just a matter of mindsetting control. I think Getting a social or mind disease is harder to cure than to those physical sickness. Because drugs and operation wont cure it. The bottom line of this was, all things too much or too less is bad. Just make all things balanced.

I arguably consider it a psychological disease. However, every disease has a cure (even if the scientists have not yet to discover some cures to some diseases). Gambling addiction can be cured with the help of the inner-self. If you do not have a strong willpower or determination, you will be stuck in the realm of addiction.

The government should not ban gambling because people will still gamble secretly, thus it is not a good decision to begin with. The problem does not lie within the government but with people. The latter are greedy, they want extra money even if they already are rich. So, I leave it for people to decide on their own whether they need to gamble or not.

It could be a disease, A contagious one but still can be cured. To start with, drugs and gambling addiction has similarities in effects but it has a different approach to cure it. Both are deadly if not prevented. Should the government forbid gambling? There are already countries that ban gambling but a lot are still doing it underground and/or online. Treating gambling addiction is not the priority of the Government most likely they'll prioritize treating drug addicts, it's more on the family's side to decide what to do, to their addicted member.

Normally people with this type of addiction cannot decide properly anymore. Gambling, greed, and negativity took over their system in which their mind wanted to stop but their body doesn't. What do I think? This addiction must be treated as soon as possible and the family of an addicted member must there to decide for him/her.

Addiction is a psychological disorder so it can be called as disease.

If someone really addcited to gambling then he can't get out from that by himself he need to take medications to recover from that so it is a disease.So people need to be aware of while gambling and keep time limit to avoid addiction.If the bad run continues then leave the gambling on that day and comeback again.

Not a disease but rather a disorder or mental disorder like what the WHO did with gaming addiction lately (it is now considered that video game addiction is a mental disorder). I think gambling is much more serious than those things, a gambling addict can lose money or even everything he had.

Yes, gambling addiction can be considered a disease because the victim will need special care if he wants to cure it. But there are levels in addiction. For those who are at the lowest level, the possibility to cure an addiction will feel easier than those who are at an acute one.

Yes l believe that gambling addiction is like a disease that will destroy the whole body.That if you are sick there's a problem to you. So if you're an addict to gambling it my destroy your family that will lost your family. Your family is like your body. How could you live with out your family, it's not good.

I think it depends on a certain person who is playing gambling , If you can't control yourself or you are obsessed on gambling we can considered that as addiction that researchers labeled it as a disease. It is like the new news now that researchers are labeling gaming as a disease. We know both are addictive and in my own perception I know that gambling addiction is not a disease.

I would say yes, it is. Anything that you have an obsession or compulsion with has something to do with a personality disorder and may be considered a disease especially if it does harm to what could have been normal functions. This disorder makes an individual dysfunctional, and is therefore long term. Hence, there is definitely a need for rehabilitation.

In relation to this, I would say addiction, per se, should not be confined to specific kinds but should encompass all others that are detrimental to ones health and normal physiologic functions. Otherwise stated, drug addiction, gambling addiction, sex addiction, among others, are basically the same in terms of abuse. Just that they vary as to the resulting effects in a holistic point of view.

As we need to see everything now can be classified as a disease and we might not be infected with some sort of virus but out brain is affected mentally. And mental disorders just like gaming and gambling can be cured with emotional and psychological help.

As we need to see everything now can be classified as a disease and we might not be infected with some sort of virus but out brain is affected mentally. And mental disorders just like gaming and gambling can be cured with emotional and psychological help.

Do you know why there are so many diseases on their list? Simply because they earn a lot of money from that, I don't trust in their list at all.
Look at the op, he is not really a gambler but he heard something. Who is gambler here? Do you think you are a gambler just because you lose money on gambling? People just have a bat habit to blame anyone and anything except them self's. Blame gambling for bad life, blame others for bad mood, and then give a name for that disease and world healthcare organization will sell you cute for that. Its all in your head, gambling is just a tool you decide how to use it, if it hurts you its your fault! Don't play with fire and cry because you get burned, if you can't handle that move away and that is it, just don't cry like a pussy and blame something or someone else for your stupidity. I'm sick from all this topics and ignorant comments about gambling.

I arguably consider it a psychological disease. However, every disease has a cure (even if the scientists have not yet to discover some cures to some diseases). Gambling addiction can be cured with the help of the inner-self. If you do not have a strong willpower or determination, you will be stuck in the realm of addiction.

The government should not ban gambling because people will still gamble secretly, thus it is not a good decision to begin with. The problem does not lie within the government but with people. The latter are greedy, they want extra money even if they already are rich. So, I leave it for people to decide on their own whether they need to gamble or not.
"Money" and being greedy is one to be blamed of on getting this addiction to gambling and government cant really be sued or blame of that they should ban gambling.Some estate might block some might legalized it because of the benefits that it gives (tax). Gamblers should really be responsible and do know the risk that might happen to them on playing too much.This is just like a disease and i agree that this is considered as a psychological disease which can be cured up with a strong self control and motivation.

like a drug, when someone starts to get addicted to gambling, it's going to be very difficult to get rid of it.
requires psychologists to quickly get rid of the same as drug addicts, gambling addicts also need rehabilitation to recover their addictive attitude

I think it depends on a certain person who is playing gambling , If you can't control yourself or you are obsessed on gambling we can considered that as addiction that researchers labeled it as a disease. It is like the new news now that researchers are labeling gaming as a disease. We know both are addictive and in my own perception I know that gambling addiction is not a disease.


Anything that is being related to addiction is nearly becomes  a psychological disease.
It is always the choice of mind of a person doing such thing. In the world of gambling, addiction starts from greed.
It is ourselves that can control our own selves.

Addiction to a thing involves changes in how our brain functions and could probably have consequences once it is not controlled.

Addiction is a psychological disorder so it can be called as disease.

If someone really addcited to gambling then he can't get out from that by himself he need to take medications to recover from that so it is a disease.So people need to be aware of while gambling and keep time limit to avoid addiction.If the bad run continues then leave the gambling on that day and comeback again.

Yes, gambling addiction can be considered a disease because the victim will need special care if he wants to cure it. But there are levels in addiction. For those who are at the lowest level, the possibility to cure an addiction will feel easier than those who are at an acute one.
Yep,there are different levels in addiction.If someone finds that he is getting addicted in the early stages then he can get out from that easily and can continue to play the gambling as well but the serious addict people need to completely stay away from the any types of gambling to get out from it or else it will make them more worse.

I agree but not only to get out of it. Once they have recovered, they need to stay away from gambling for life, the same way a recovered alcoholic mustnít try a sip for the rest of his life, because it would lead to the same old self-destruction pattern.

Should the government forbid gambling and treat somehow those who are addicted?
Or maybe it should be left up to an adult? I mean, should people decide on their own whether they need to gamble or not.
What do you think?

Appropriate it seems like a disease but i will clear it that Gambling is not a disease our Addiction of gambling is like a disease. I was know about it that addiction is a disease and in most of the gambling threads i used this word of Disease for addiction in gambling.
It is because addiction has no solution it is like a cancer disease and it is last stage of it and we can't return from it in our life. But basically it is our fault that we come in this level and become addicted.

If we do gambling for a good reason like it is also a kind of entertainment but do not be so addicted to this gambling is a good way to enjoy you in a platform which you can not enjoy at your home and the crypto coins are very good for this many people do online casino and many people do gambling but it will good if we just practice this with fun and the gambling will become the disease when you are purely addicted to this so addiction is not good while the doing of gambling just for fun is good .

Yes, gambling is a disease because those who have addicted to gambling suffer a lot, they will start losing interest in other things and also they feel gambling most important than family and their friends. Gamblers feel insecure when they start to lose in gambling that can be also considered as a disease.

I think if any person recovered from the gambling addiction he knows how to control his feelings because without controlling his feeling he will never come back from gambling addiction. there are some people playing gambling after they recovered from addiction but they learned how to play gambling and when to stop and how to avoid addicting to this gambling.

Not a disease but rather a disorder or mental disorder like what the WHO did with gaming addiction lately (it is now considered that video game addiction is a mental disorder). I think gambling is much more serious than those things, a gambling addict can lose money or even everything he had.

Well for me diseases here mean the same as mental disorder, because when we talk about gambling addicts, we will talk about their mentally ill. Mental illness is what is meant as a disease. Mental treatment is not easy, there is no pill-like medicine that can treat it, mental illness should be treated with mental again and slowly.

Health officials say that gambling addiction is without a doubt a brain disease, so yes it is a disease. There are drugs called dopamine agonists which, among other side effects, cause compulsive gambling. I've never used dopamine agonists myself, but a friend of mine was suffering Restless legs syndrome (RLS) and he was prescribed with those drugs and indeed he developed a gambling addiction. I don't know if it's a coincendense because he was gambling a lot before too, but he says that things have become worse after he started taking the drugs. Generally speaking, if you have to take dopamine agonists you better stay away from gambling at all, while you are taking the drugs.

So, while at an early stage we must avoid that problem, it's simple just having a mindset or self-control in gambling to avoid that kind of disease of gambling. Yes, you are right sir a disease of the mind that needs a serious attention if having a gambler addict maybe his not curable in a just easy way, maybe doctors can do that.
Cause of addiction depends on you how to manage yourself, don't let gambling controlled you must control gambling.

I think the government should forbid gambling. It depends on the people if they will continue to gamble.  Those who will violate it should have a punishment and it depends on the number of times that he violated. And they should be treated because addiction is a disease. It will be difficult for them to quit so the government should help them cured.

Being alcoholic is an addiction, there are people who cannot think, talk, react or keep himself active without consuming alcohol. Same kinda people are there with gambling as well, these people can't think of a day without getting into any of the gambling events. Even after regular loss, they can't stay away at least for a short term. This makes gambling to be a disease with some personalities.

All the addictions have similarities, all addicted people have common behavior, but the things on what people get addicted are different and I believe there should be different ways to deal with each of these things. I don't think gambling should be banned from countries because some people are addicted, but I think drugs should be.

Gambling is benefical for a society in some aspects. It generates wealthy, jobs, third party services, it's the industry that makes real income distribution. The main players are the rich guys and that is the way they spend their money heavily, distributing it to others via gambling... So in countries where gambling is banned because it's a disease and people are weak, the society is losing a big chance of boosting their local economy.

It is always a disease. It is independent of the nature and situation of a person. It doesnít even matter whether someone have limit himself in gambling, someone is coming to casinos only to get entertainment and fun, someone is join this harmful game for earing some money. Such cases and many others, gambling never leave anyone until it makes him a full-fledged bankrupt.

It can be considered as mental illness or something that is really a disease because you are doing it that much. It's hard to avoid if you don't have the will to avoid and stop it. But if you wish to quit and not to have this type of addiction or disease, you better get yourself something better in gambling so that you will not be ending up addicted in gambling.

Of course, gambling is a disease.

so my opinion is that people should be cured of this disease, otherwise they will be destroyed, their country will be destroyed, their family will be destroyed, each of us should keep everyone safe from this disease and this disease Get discouraged from going,

Every addiction is a disease, as long as it is something that is uneasy to sure, then it is even a huge one that can spread pretty fast and overwhelm you before you even know it. There is a thin line between gambling as a normal human being and entering the addictive world because that is where the advantage you have to control the impulse has been taken away from you and once you are in that lane, it is a big one to deal with.

Everyone has his/her own choices that they are making. Noone is competent enough to steal this choice from the other persons. Alcohol drinking is not forbidden if it is consumed without endangering the other people. Gambling is same as the alcohol addiction but just on its own terms.

We cannot restrict the gambling fro the people because we all have our own will which has a big impact on our choices. There are many clinics for the addicts. Even sex addict have their own clinic but the choice for treatment of this addictions is up to the man that is influenced by it.

Gambling is not a disease; it is not contagious nor sickening. It is influential for the people with the low willpower. If the man can be easily influenced then no one can help him if he doesn't accept the help freely and sees his own mistakes.

May be I am wrong but I believe if someone wants to quit something, it is only he who has to do it so why to waste time in getting advices from others? Just quit it. It is not that much easy but you motivation to quitting it should be far superior to this action. In such case you will not need any longer time to leave that thing.

Possible, but not all the times that a previous addicted gambler would really comes back into its previous track specially when he experience hardship into his own life where he comes to a point that he dont have any money in his pocket and do destroy his relationship with his loved ones.If he realizes those things then there no doubt that the gambler do already learn a lesson and wont go back on that thing.

It only means that you are responsible gambler and you know that it will be better to stay away from such before you will be affected that way. Enjoying isn't bad if that is too much, that becomes wrong and with gambling it's literally going to become addiction and disease that you never know.

I am not really a gambler but I heard about people who can't quit it and keep losing lots of money. Do you think the attitude to gambling addiction should be the same as to drug addiction?
Should the government forbid gambling and treat somehow those who are addicted?
Or maybe it should be left up to an adult? I mean, should people decide on their own whether they need to gamble or not.
What do you think?

Yes l consider gambling is a disease because it's like a cancer thats eat your body until your body is destroyed. Because when my husband addicted on gambling he never think about his family until we separated. He didn't do something to survive our family. Because his life is worst in gambling that he can't cure anymore. So he didn't do anything to solve all what he done.

Being addicted is hard to avoid when people did not know how to manage his responsibilities in their finances.It should be a diseases to those people who cant control and even repeating playing even though they have full of debts.
It's inevitable to become addicted if most of your time is dedicated in casino's and you are enjoying with your time there.

And because you're enjoying you didn't know that the system eats you and you'll wake up one day that all are gone because of your addiction.

In gambling there are many circumstances and in a matter of time people have different life before and after gambling. Gambling addiction can be called a disease because of its effect on a person who is suffering from unconscious way of thinking that is only focused in gambling.

Actually gambling is not a disease, The Addiction of Gambling is like a disease and in this point i agree with you, that when husband become addicted then he don't care his family even his family helpless to live hand to mouth and borrow money to others but he don't care because he has a disease of gambling addiction.

Addiction on gambling is a kind of disease that only our self can healed of our addiction. Some people hard to quit gambling if you some want to take away from it try to convinced your self that gambling is not a good to you. And try to control your self and tell that you can do quit gambling.
May be I am wrong but I believe if someone wants to quit something, it is only he who has to do it so why to waste time in getting advices from others? Just quit it. It is not that much easy but you motivation to quitting it should be far superior to this action. In such case you will not need any longer time to leave that thing. For all those gamblers who came to know they are doing wrong, quit it.
You're right but some gamblers need some motivation since they are not that persistent on their decision, some psychological reasoning occurs in their selves that still motivates them to continue, maybe from good experiences they gain from gambling or the reciprocate that they give much to give into it so their hoping that they get even some in return.

Yep,there are different levels in addiction.If someone finds that he is getting addicted in the early stages then he can get out from that easily and can continue to play the gambling as well but the serious addict people need to completely stay away from the any types of gambling to get out from it or else it will make them more worse.

I agree but not only to get out of it. Once they have recovered, they need to stay away from gambling for life, the same way a recovered alcoholic mustnít try a sip for the rest of his life, because it would lead to the same old self-destruction pattern.
Yeah, that is always a good strategy for someone who has been able to recover from gambling and going back to it is more like a dog vomiting and going back to its own vomit and we know how dirty that can be. I was told that when you are addicted and you recover, if you end up not controlling yourself and going back to it, it is always worse than the first instance as this time, the person will be so messed up that no one can recover such a person.

It is better to not get addicted at all and trying to control yourself before even starting to gamble, than to start controlling yourself when you find out that you are getting addicted as you may never know, you would have entered the addictive channel already and still think you are trying to battle it. It is not an easy thing to be in that zone, as it is war against your own body, spirit and soul and it takes a lot to get out from it.

I believe it is a disease, a brain disease because of the imbalance secretion of hormone in the brain.  Every time aperson is playing  gambling games, brain signals and a hormone is produced, this makes the brain unable to control stuff like self control. With these a person tends to play continuesly without any control and conciousness that he is already spending all his savings in gambling games.

Yup,it is an disease and we have separate hospitals for curing the addiction,it is an mental disorder not an habit.

It's problem like everything other, for example depression and etc and it needs treatment. Almost everything is brain chemic, their volume affect our every decision. For example when you win during gambling, it usually increases your dopamine levels, this is very, very addictive.
Also consider the fact that every human thinks if they win once, they can win next time too.
It needs time and some meds, is treatable of course.

Severe problem gambling may be diagnosed as clinical pathological gambling if the gambler meets certain criteria.There's a types of gambling that people with this disorder might engage in are as variable as the games available. Only himself can control in causing disease. Money for gambling in order to achieve the desired level of gambling enjoyment.

I think it's because his mind cannot control his mind to stay away or quit gambling. and if you said that the brain unable to control stuff like self control, then he needs to learn to control his mind. and if the mind is the problem, then he really need other people to help him to solve his problem. for me, disease is something that we can see, we can look at his body but not in his mind. maybe it's the mental problem that needs to be solved and I think there are institutions that could help him to recover his mind.

I agree, gambling addiction is so hard to control because if we say we are addicted, it is either because we have lost a huge amount of money already or we are winning, so addiction in to something is not really bad if it is benefiting you in some ways. But the worst case scenario here is when we are not quitting and addiction blinds us, that is why we end up broke or even more worst than that.

Gambling, not a disease. It's all up to you how you can react to it. It's controlled by you. It's not the drug , it's a habit. And habit can stop.. Because it does not effect on your body. It only effects on your mind. At the same time if you were busy with the other such works, slowly slowly your gambling habits will reduce.
No I strongly disagree, it is not a habit rather a disease. Habit can be bad or good but when some bad habit becomes so spoiled to loss you every time, it will become a disease, an intangible disease that canít be diagnosed.

Believe me this gambling canít be controlled by some human mind. Many came, talking about limiting themselves while gambling, they ended up being losers.

If it cannot be controlled by the human mind, them damn I might be super human then. A gambling addiction is a disease, but not just a regular one but something which is a mental condition. We can't really advise on this to be honest, unless you are a medical doctor who is actually specializing on mental disorders. Though indeed it is not just about limiting one's self that would prevent an addicted person from gambling, but it helps.

of course both of them are totally different and i guess we arent talking about any drug related here. Were only talking about gambling and op compares it to an addiction or a disease but i think gambling is more over of an addiction because you oftenly do it despite the fact that you know isnt good or beneficial for you. a disease is literally an ailment or health problems that doesnt have anything related to gambling or any forms of activies.

Actually Addiction gambling and addiction drugs are two things that are not so different even tend to be the same. The only difference is in how severe their addiction rate is, if it's been longer, it will get worse. Support from family is important, coupled with a strong effort, gambling addicts and drug addicts can be cured.

Yeah you are right,how long the gambling addiction is there for a person then the effect of that disease is more worse.SO we need help from the family to get rid of from addiction.But I have seen that many gambling addicts are also become drug addicts soon after their failure in their life.

Addiction whether its with gambling or drugs, it's still addiction. It's too much use of something or you are giving too much time to it which is not normal. This is one of the hardest battle for those people who are experiencing addiction especially in gambling, they will never think of themselves and those people who cares for them. All they want to do is to gamble, win and recover money, that's all.

All things which are not already on proper engagement or too much focused on does really signifies addiction and as we all know all things which are too much does really give negative impact into our lives. Drugs or gambling addiction, there no doubt that these things should really be avoided at all cost since we do know the potential risk or consequence that might face ahead which we cant really able to comprehend that it would happen to our lives.

Addiction is a psychological disorder so it can be called as disease.

If someone really addcited to gambling then he can't get out from that by himself he need to take medications to recover from that so it is a disease.So people need to be aware of while gambling and keep time limit to avoid addiction.If the bad run continues then leave the gambling on that day and comeback again.

Yes, gambling addiction can be considered a disease because the victim will need special care if he wants to cure it. But there are levels in addiction. For those who are at the lowest level, the possibility to cure an addiction will feel easier than those who are at an acute one.

In fact, some diseases are even easy to get cure as simple things are what you need to make use of to get out of it, but gambling is one disease that is very hard to get a cure from unless you are able to find someone to help you channel your mind and energy into getting out of that shit.

into this addiction, he will no longer control his/her mind, already a disease where mental cure is needed in order to correct the balance off cells
inside the brain where relaxations is needed.

Gambling is that way. It is just a beautiful illusion. Well, there are many reasons behind gambling and mostly people are trying to make money out of it. Some gambles claim that it is fun while others find relief and relaxation in this game. However, the reality is that gambling can only waste money and time. No matter what the reason is, a gambler cannot avoid loss of the mentioned things. Ultimately, a person will get harm in some way.

First of all diseases are of two types, communicable and non communicable. Non communicable diseases cannot be transferred from one person to another. I do agree that gambling addiction is kind of a mental problem and in extreme cases medications might be required for it. Also, gambling addiction can result in various other health problems like sleep disorder.

Gambling addiction must be cured, if it is extreme and the gambling addict is aware he is addicted and wants to quit, rehab can be a solution, but if you want to slowly in his own way can also work, it's just that you should be more patient and should not easily give up.

It is something like that it's kinda disease because plenty of people who are suffering now due to addiction of gambling ,yes it not communicable or we cannot pass it through by touching other people but still the growth of gambling addiction is getting more higher and it is getting worst.
I've been addicted to gambling and I've been out of controlled as what I've always said. My partner and my parents always told me to quit still no one can stop me but when you are determine to let go your vices and eager ,only you and your self can help you to be out of it .

to ban something does not work. even in prisons are the drugs for example.
think it should be classified as a disease, such as alcoholism, and that there should be support to get.

It may be considered as a disease in the mental aspect of the individual. Once someone gets addicted to gambling, their mental and emotional health deteriorates slowly. This poses a problem when they formulate ideas and this also affects their decision making skills making them indecisive at some point. Compared to any other addiction, I see it more as a problem than a disease. But when their addiction takes-over their mental capacity, then we may also consider it as a disease.

The cure for an addiction is self-control and rehabilitation. Intervention of third-parties are necessary in order for the well-being of the individual may soon recover. But if they still continue their vices despite support from professionals, expect them to contribute to crime rates in the near-future.

No its not. It will never be a disease. Gambling is an addiction to play and earn money. There are gamblers who just want to play cards but it requires money so they bet on it. In my case, I got addicted to gambling because I was aiming for the huge pot money. The jackpot price that I never won. I lost a lot of money and I regret it. There are times that the only way to learn our lesson is to experience losing. Its not a disease, its something you a person is attached to.

If the gambler is willing being cured then there's a lots of options aside from his willingness, the medication to relax a minds and to balance the brain was
also available, we knew that gambling addicted persons needs to have rehabilitation in order to free their minds and with the help of their willingness to
have a normal  life again and their love ones support then this disease will be wipe away.

It depends on the person, as far as I know and what I have read addiction in gambling it can considered as a disease and mental health also. Therapy and medications can help restore normalcy to the brain and improve oneís ability to control these urges. So before we get addicted to gambling its better not to try even once.

Well, most people are addicted to gambling and that is a bad thing, very bad.
Gambling is also like drugs, you will start experiencing health problems like headaches, anxiety, and you will be difficult to control your emotions, gambling can also damage the relationship between friends, family.
My advice, if you want to gamble should not depth mean I make gambling as entertainment when you experience boredom, loneliness but do not make it a priority.

Disease can be passed to another person or get spread and addiction doesn't do that. It could be categorized as a mental problem that range from mild to a very serious addiction on gambling.

Yeah and mental problem is a disease. So gambling addiction is disease. Well maybe you do not think of mental problems as disease, but I do. Gambling addiction must be cured, if it is extreme and the gambling addict is aware he is addicted and wants to quit, rehab can be a solution, but if you want to slowly in his own way can also work, it's just that you should be more patient and should not easily give up.

It is a form of mental disease. I really hate addiction to gambling because it once destroyed our family. All our properties were gone into thin air because of my dad's addiction to gambling. I was very young then but I understand everything. It pained me a lot to see that we sold our house and lot to cover the debts of my father. We left the place and start to zero again. I hope it will not happen again to us.

For me, it is somewhat a disease already, why? Addiction for me is also sick. Once you've become attached to that addiction, you can never go out on that unless there is someone who will help you stop that addiction. Just like when we are sick, we need to medicate to make us well. I think it is also like that.

I am not really a gambler but I heard about people who can't quit it and keep losing lots of money. Do you think the attitude to gambling addiction should be the same as to drug addiction?
Should the government forbid gambling and treat somehow those who are addicted?
Or maybe it should be left up to an adult? I mean, should people decide on their own whether they need to gamble or not.
What do you think?
for me gambling addiction is very true that it is disease and also it is very difficult to heal. you as one being adiccted in gambling can manage yourself if you want to quit in gambling, because you are the only one who can manage your life and you are the only one who will decide if what do you want to do in your life after you go through counceiling.

Disease can be passed to another person or get spread
That's totally false, and you should just stay silent rather than spread falsehoods.  Diabetes is a disease and it's not catchy, same for thousands of other ones.

Compulsive gambling won't be a disease until medicine defines it as such, that's the bottom line.  We can debate it all we want, but none of us is responsible for defining that particular word.  I happen to think that addiction to substances is a disease, and compulsive gambling shares a lot of the same characteristics with chemical addiction--but it's not my call.  There's a great video made by a doctor, "Pleasure Unwoven" that gives a clear explanation of why addiction is a disease, and that the midbrain is the affected organ.  That's the pleasure center of the brain.  It's an interesting video.

Other diseases such as cancer, diabetes and so on require expert handling to cure it. We depend on others to cope with the disease. While in the case of addiction, others can only help us to eliminate the addiction. It rely on ourselves if we want to cure our addictions.
This post makes zero sense.

There are too many legit issues in the world so I don't bother much on gambling.

At least if someone gets broke on gambling it was a choice unlike many old practices in the world that still exist. ;D

I think gambling with drugs is a different matter. more medicine for physical and gambling more to the mental. Gambling addiction can only be solved by people who are addicted to gambling with the help of support from the nearest person, can also with the help of a psychiatrist.

to ban something does not work. even in prisons are the drugs for example.
think it should be classified as a disease, such as alcoholism, and that there should be support to get.
alcoholism wasnt a disease either..how would we expect government to restrict people from gambling when they are the number one beneficiary of this..look how huge are the taxes gathered by the government because of gambling.and here you are looking for the action to answer th question..expect nothing or if theres some itjust for publicity not for the real intentions

It is easy to recover when you are sick medically for instance you have high fever or suffering from flu but hard to recover in case of mental illness. Addiction is a mental disorder where your brain allows you to do that certain activity which is harming you even against your will.

Well in some ways it is, but technically speaking, gambling is a habit where we can't avoid it because we are used to do it every single day and not playing it for even a day is a big deficit for us, we can't call it a day without doing it. Gambling addiction is a disease if we wanted to call it that way that we should eradicate or else it will kill us.

Basically it's not forbidden, and I think it's like a risk to the self, and even if it's prohibited by the family, if it's really a hobby/habit, it can't be separated from it. It all depends on each person responding to gambling, about addict or not., it's depending on self-control in a gambling.
It's a disease, which's easy to feel and but., it can be avoided by our self.

Well first of all gambling is not same as drug addiction because gambling is more easy to cure by just having a family the will always remind you on what risk could you get upon it. And second, I think that gambling is forbidden in most countries and there are some countries where gambling is legal but it should be on adult only. However, due to privacy of bitcoin had, anyone can gambling online because thr identity of that person was hidden.

Sometimes the decision is always depend on us if we need to gamble or not. You know gambling is really one of the worst thing that you can do for me because my parents are both gambler is because of that we experience financial difficulty and there are times that we don't have any money for our allowance in school that's why I consider gambling as worst thing. Addiction is a severe disease that is really hard to give up so all you need to do avoid it is to focus yourself to something that made you forget that gambling.

Maybe sometimes the addiction of gambling we can called a severe diseases that cannot easily remove  or cure with a medicine ,thats why its needed a little by little  to medicating ourself personally by trying to avoid,or educate ourself that in  gambling only 10% will be success and those 90% will turn to debt and frustation.while in other hand there is no institution or government services in my country that threats the person who become a gambling addicted and  if there is,they paid it personaly and not a free.

Gambling addiction is not a disease. It is something a habitual adoption. Because, people stick to it experiencing good return, and the same won't let them go out of gambling even when they were experiencing continued failures leading to loss. This is all because of the considering gambling a regular habitual activity.

I agree , Gambling addiction came from the habit that gambling addicts cant control. Even myself cant think that gambling addiction is a disease. Gamblers just an addict because they have a thing that they want to achieve on playing. Stopping gambling addicts from playing gambling is quite hard but it is only depending on the gambler addict if he/she want to change.

Gambling is not disease, but gambling addiction is disease. Gambling is just a game that if played with good self-control will only be an entertaining game. But if you're addicted to gambling it means you're not playing with good control. You're only going to get a bad thing if you're addicted, that's why gambling addiction is disease.

At first i thought gambling addiction is a disease but now that im old enough ill definitely agree that it is really not a disease. Its just a problem that the gambler cant stop, they even dont know what are the things that pass by, what they did just to continue/fund their gambling.

I remembered one of my peer told me about her father. She told me that her father came from a well-known and rich family. But her father become addicted in gambling that he couldn't stop it even he is already a parent. He sell some stuff to finance his gambling and he even take drugs. Then it came to the point that he realized that he doesn't have anything now money, his daughter,wife, and stable job. And i merely believe that everything has a peak, when you reach the top you'll realize what your doing is not right so it is really not a disease.

That makes sense. Definitely this is nothing but a disease. A wealthy person with a healthy mind goes in a casino on some friendís request for some time. There he sees how people are doing and earning fake money that would be just going away from them the very next day. But still an image is built on this mind about greed of money and he comes out as poor person with diseases mind.

When we have a behaviour problem that we can't stop by ourself(addiction in this case), that means we got a disease. If we let it remain unsolved, we can get a big disaster. Hence, addiction to anything is a disease.

Others are describing it as a problem and to tell you guys that having addiction can be categorized as a disease, you'll think of how you can get out of it.

When we say disease,  most of us will think about real diseases like cancer, AIDS and etc.  Gambling is compared to disease because it spreads like a real disease does. It cause people to behave badly and think negatively which a disease can cause too.  Gambling is a bad habit already but many people are still doing it,  it is like a disease where people cannot avoid.

Normally,  we would gamble for fun but because it can also make us earn money,  we treat as a source which is not good.

gambling habit is disease, all kinds of addiction is disease. Addiction will always take you to a bad road. As you say, gambling is a bad habit, so if it's addictive, it's really a terrible disease. Gambling involves money and people are always tempted by money, that's the gambling appeal that keeps us gambling even though we know the gambling is bad.

If you get addicted that would be the worst experience in gambling, because you will not think wisely and you will always seek gambling.
Remember that in gambling we have less chance to win so it's necessary that we set a limit everytime we play, if we get dictated by our emotion, that would lead us to a big trouble.

Normally,  we would gamble for fun but because it can also make us earn money,  we treat as a source which is not good.

gambling habit is disease, all kinds of addiction is disease. Addiction will always take you to a bad road. As you say, gambling is a bad habit, so if it's addictive, it's really a terrible disease. Gambling involves money and people are always tempted by money, that's the gambling appeal that keeps us gambling even though we know the gambling is bad.
Addiction of everything can be consider as a disease, In fact excess of everything is not good both for our health as well as for our financial status, If we are playing gambling in a limit and we only play gambling up to the limit where we can afford to lose the money, but if we are exceeding from the limit then  it is really not good for us and then we can consider it as a diseases and we should visit a consultant for the treatment.

No how can it be termed as a disease, do you even understand yourself when you say that. Disease is like cancer, aids gambling is a notion, it's a feeling. Diseases are not in our control but gambling is. Diseases destroys a persons life, his carrier and in many societies they're looked as untouchables. Gambling on the other hand can make you rich, super rich while of course you can loose it all to. It's a sad thing you're comparing both.

Disease can be passed to another person or get spread and addiction doesn't do that. It could be categorized as a mental problem that range from mild to a very serious addiction on gambling.

Yeah and mental problem is a disease. So gambling addiction is disease. Well maybe you do not think of mental problems as disease, but I do. Gambling addiction must be cured, if it is extreme and the gambling addict is aware he is addicted and wants to quit, rehab can be a solution, but if you want to slowly in his own way can also work, it's just that you should be more patient and should not easily give up.

It is a form of mental disease. I really hate addiction to gambling because it once destroyed our family. All our properties were gone into thin air because of my dad's addiction to gambling. I was very young then but I understand everything. It pained me a lot to see that we sold our house and lot to cover the debts of my father. We left the place and start to zero again. I hope it will not happen again to us.


Yes gambling addiction is considered a brain disease because the losses in gambling have become so troubling and disturbance to the mind of the gambler.  It causes depression which lead to mental problem. Gambling addiction has been recognized as an actual brain disease, by the mental health and medical community.

It's not necessarily a disease but more like a drug. And just like most other drug, you can get addicted to it. And that would mean you would be spending all your time and effort to gamble which is bad for you.
A disease on the other hand is more like a disorder or a malfunction of a human part.

Addiction is one of the diseases that must be treated, not only in gambling, all kinds of things that are addictive, such as addiction to drugs, sex etc. are diseases. So addiction is not good and you have to treat it and leave your habit that has become addicted so that you are free from the bond if it really makes you tormented.

Drug addict can be cured by taking medical treatment but for gambling addiction their is no medicine to cure it, it is only cured by the will of the gambler who got addicted or until he is totally not lost all his investment he wont realize what he has lost in his life.

Not accurate. Drug addiction doesn't have a medical treatment. There's no drug that you can take and then all of a sudden your body is not looking for drugs anymore. Fentanyl, an opioid, is 100x stronger than morphine is now a trendy drug. There really is no meds that can take you off the drug but the medical treatments are rather for your withdrawals. Withdrawals are very painful and for fentanyl, you might experience it 3x per day. And that's what makes people addicted to it. Their body is literally looking for the drug and they need the drug in order to survive the day. Suboxone is the drug used for most opiate addiction.

Both doesn't really have a "cure" to it. Quitting drugs requires another drug (the suboxone for opiate addicts) as well as the willpower to not take another of that drug that you were once addicted to. While in gambling, it only requires willpower and no drugs at all. Which is harder then?

This is why whenever you watch real life documentaries of recovering addicts, they always tell their new members that "We're going to help you but you're gonna have to help yourself." The real help comes from within. The outside help is just there for support, so you have something to hold accountable for.

I would not consider it as a disease but just some form of psychological defect as the case may be. What happens is that gambling has a way of trying to gain control and once it is able to go through with that and take over your emotions and you let it do that easily, it would be hard to get out from.

It is not just gambling, as this is applicable to other things such as sex, drugs, alcohol, name them. It triggers somethingís in you to just always want it more and if you realize that and still let it gain the best of you, then it becomes a problem.

I am not really a gambler but I heard about people who can't quit it and keep losing lots of money. Do you think the attitude to gambling addiction should be the same as to drug addiction?
Should the government forbid gambling and treat somehow those who are addicted?
Or maybe it should be left up to an adult? I mean, should people decide on their own whether they need to gamble or not.
What do you think?

Yes l believe that gambling additions is a disease,because its like a sickness that if you dont cure it will going to a worst situation.You always look everyday to go to a gambling worrying for each day to gamble.Disease will not cure if you dont look for a medecine,gambling cant stop also if you dont look for a solution to stop.

It could be said that it was a disease, because if someone had fallen into gambling it would be difficult to take it off, and it had a bad effect of losing all the money,

It is not just gambling, as this is applicable to other things such as sex, drugs, alcohol, name them. It triggers somethingís in you to just always want it more and if you realize that and still let it gain the best of you, then it becomes a problem.
What gambling does is that it promises you the jackpot as long as you keep on playing. It makes us think that eventually we're going to be millionaires, we just have to keep doing what we're doing and so far we're doing. It's the same reason why there are people who never forget to put a bet in the lottery. They're thinking, "What if today is the day?" and so they push themselves to bet even at the point that they have become aware that they are never going to win.

Sex, drugs, alcohol, and gambling, they all have one thing in common. They give you dopamine rush whenever you do them. Our mind wants to experience that dopamine rush again and again. One day we're good but after a couple of days our brain misses it. And the thing is, our brain slowly needs more and more dosage of it. It needs to have it more often. At some point, your brain becomes reliant on that just so that you're going to feel normal. This is why going cold turkey when you're addicted to something is really the hard way to do. Your brain is going to have withdrawals. It's missing the "drug" whatever form it may come (e.g. sex, drug, gambling).

Addicts didn't know that they are going to be addicts. They kind of just do their vices. They kind of just let it take control. They weren't aware that they are needing it more and more. So in their point-of-point view, it "kind of just happened".

I am not a doctor nor anything of sort but I do know there is a difference to disease, a disorder and you can also illness there in the group. As far as I can remember, diseases are always related to bacterias like cold and other sort. Disorder on the other hand has a connection to our mental state and it might started on the time we are conceived and illness, I don't know the exact words my teacher said but it is like a combination of disease and illness. So Gambling addiction is not a disease nor an illness but it is a disorder, a mental disorder.

I agree, withdrawal syndrome (aka a discontinuation syndrome) is what you get after getting addicted to something, whether that be sex, alcohol, drugs, overeating or gambling. That's why, if you don't want to get addicted to something, you have to take regular breaks from the activities you love so much. Only this way you can be safe. But don't worry, this will not make your life less joyful. On the contrary, you will be enjoying the activities much more after the breaks. So, it's really a win-win situation.

Yes, gambling addiction same like drugs addiction. People who are addicted into drugs are only think about drugs, how to get the drugs easily, how to get money to buy drugs, nothing else same like gambling addiction. It's not disease but like mental illness and stress, like you said.

There are different types of diseases, the most popular one of it, is the one that infects your physical body. Let's take it from your own description of what gambling addiction leads to.

Mental stress, that's a health condition and a disease is related to it. This is only my opinion cause I'm not a doctor but we can consider that gambling addiction is serious and can be classified as a disease but not infectious.

I consider it as a disease if you are prone to gambling and cannot stay without it. If you play for fun or to make yourself happy then yes it is good so that you can enjoy. But people consider it as a money making tool and which is a wrong thing.

Why you guys taking gambling is the that much worst investment if you feel this as investment kind of thing. There are people still have gambling as their entertainment factor to make the money but probably they are not making money on this gambling field.

I suggest them to stay away from the gambling investment and go with the sports betting to make the right odds pick on where you want to invest on the gambling field.

It really depends on how gambling addiction take effects. If the person or people are having bad symptoms like, they start betting their personal properties, or simply destroying their lives, then you can say that gambling addiction is a disease to that person. But if the person's mind is still stable, then that means that gambling addiction to them are not a disease.

Yes, that's true too, because gambling addiction will also make a person feel depressed because they receive a lot of losses. That way there is also the possibility that they can do negative activities such as stealing etc. So as long as their souls can still be well controlled over addictions in gambling, then they are still in good sanity and not a disease.

No, because it won't kill people just like drugs. At least, not directly. And gambling is easier to stop, not like drug addiction who needs a rehabilitation to stop it.

Not all of the disease could kill us, there are diseases that are not curable but is treatable, and it goes the same to gambling addiction. Gambling addiction is a disease where we found ourselves playing gambling over and over again after losing for so many times already. It is a part of gambling addict's life, a day won't pass by that they are not playing gambling, it is one of their daily routine so eliminating it from them would be tough.

It might not literally kill you, but it might be the reason someday why you will be dead. Maybe you'll starve to death because you don't have money anymore, or maybe you'll get killed because someone has an urge to kill you because you don't pay your debt.

This is the reason why a lot of people end up going through rehabilitation at least to get out of it. Diseases can easily be gotten out from, but not something like addiction where your self-control has been fully hijacked.

Addiction is the fact or condition of being addicted to a particular substance or activity. We are all addicts! I have my rituals, everyone has it. If you like something there are high chances that you will be addicted to it if you use it or do it everyday! With strong mind you can control yourself and your activities, with weak mind you will always be week when temptation comes in any form. Weak people needs medications to makes them stronger, and there are many weak people in the world. Addiction can be a disease if someone can`t control anymore, why to not give that person some drugs? Drugs can help them to be stronger and to not think about addiction so much.

Gambling will become a disease when gambling itselft already controlled someone's mind, when a person doesn't do anything else in his life but gambling. Gambling regularly doesn't necessarily become a benchmark that we are addicts. As long as we don't spend our time just for gambling, we still do other activities like people in general, and don't use all of our money for gambling purposes, I think we are still safe.

if people experiencing this then they should seek help from family or doctors whoever they can get help to, to also prevent more damage in the future as well as a potentially destroying others lives and even their life as well.

I am not really a gambler but I heard about people who can't quit it and keep losing lots of money. Do you think the attitude to gambling addiction should be the same as to drug addiction?
Should the government forbid gambling and treat somehow those who are addicted?
Or maybe it should be left up to an adult? I mean, should people decide on their own whether they need to gamble or not.
What do you think?
It could be said that it was a disease, because if someone had fallen into gambling it would be difficult to take it off, and it had a bad effect of losing all the money,
At least it is not much different from drug addicts, too, and if you want to quit, it can only be done with its own and strong intentions
Diseases can easily be removed because you know you need a drug to get rid of it and be able to leave a better life. In this case, you know what you are up against. However, when it comes to gambling, it is even hard for the addict to realize he is lost in himself and into gambling, let alone know he needs help.

Most addicts usually could not just help it and no matter what, this is the reason they tend to keep going back even when they know things are not going right with their mental reasoning and that is more than a disease but a psychological disorder.

I am not a doctor nor anything of sort but I do know there is a difference to disease, a disorder and you can also illness there in the group. As far as I can remember, diseases are always related to bacterias like cold and other sort. Disorder on the other hand has a connection to our mental state and it might started on the time we are conceived and illness, I don't know the exact words my teacher said but it is like a combination of disease and illness. So Gambling addiction is not a disease nor an illness but it is a disorder, a mental disorder.
Lol does not need a doctor to say that addicts are diseases, and illness is not always interpreted as a basis for reaction from bacteria
or the like, everyone knows that being an addict is a disease and it must be cured so as not to harm you in the long run..

It is a condition and not a disease. A disease is where harmful organisms affects your body in a negative way. Gambling addiction also affects you bad but it is only in the mind but you can defeat it by having a string support from your loved ones and also with a good discipline.

I agree with you.
Gambling addiction is a disease because we talk about addiction, it is a psychological disease and people should get help to recover.
It is indeed a psychological disease since it totally affects the victim's reasoning and ability to make proper decisions. Although, rather than call it a disease, I would rather call it a problem or mental issue. This is the reason why it is always important to at least be able to find some help from social gatherings or shrinks so as to be able to get back those senses which when lost to gambling, is always hard to retrieve.

When a person get addicted to gambling it can be both physical and mentally as well. Because if mentally he is disturbed then physically he will also get effected in the long run and this addiction is something which will take your money away as well from you.

You don't understand the definition. If a disease affects you mentally and your constantly in a bad mood it doesn't turn it into an addiction. This works both ways if an addiction drains you physically it doesn't turn into a disease. It's still an addiction with additional effects that appear over time. Don't try to make your own definitions, there's already enough of them.

Yeah its more of a mental problem if the person doesn't control his addiction. Its everyone responsibility not to be addicted to it however, its really really hard once you are hook into it. Even comparable to the effect of drugs in our mind, euphoric feeling and most of the time no control whatsoever and reasoning is totally blinded.

Yeah, addiction is something that has to do with the psychological state of the mind and for sure I know there is just a little line between someone who is physically diseased and someone who is psychologically screwed.

It is a very bad thing to allow such to happen to one, considering the fact that getting out of it can be a thug of war. It is even far worse than a disease, because once you have the right medication for a disease, it can easily be cured, even if you have to face it for the mean time.

But gambling is one state that getting out from is a whole lot hard and there is no form of drug that can help except having to go through rehabilitation and in that case, such a person must be ready on their own to take that path which most addicts always find hard to do until they have totally ruined themselves.

Gambling addiction is not a disease but it can cause disease though. Continuous gambling with no control upon the loss of the money can cause some serious health-related disorder/diseases. Hypertension is one of them leading to a serious heart disorder and also it is a cause of Diabetes along with various other diseases. And be assured the addicted gambler may be hampered mentally as well.

Addiction and disease are two different things. Disease if minor can be covered easily in few days but addiction cannot be treated till the addictor does not decide to quit addiction not only of gambling but of every bad thing. Just as I addict of smoking but I do not quit smoking although I have tried so many times. Gambling addiction has ruined many people and their families as well.

A lot of psychologists always relate addiction to a disease of the mind which affects our mental state and emotional being all at the same time. As long as you do things abnormally, then you have a problem, and as long as you have a problem, you need a cure or a solution, and that is something that is actually relative when we are talking about diseases anyway.

Gambling addiction is pretty bad and it is not something anyone should ever want to face which is why it is necessary to always stay in control when you still have the chance, than trying to find a solution to get out later on.

In start may be casinos or sites when they have a new id may make them actually win so that they get the addiction of earning or making money from gambling.

Well, you can make a quick search to what is the meaning of "disease" and "illness", also, well I think people really have different point of views into these things, still sticking on gambling addiction is not a disease though but it is a disorder.

This is another misconception of new gamblers to gambling sites. I don't think being new into a gambling site makes your risk lower and experiencing you a great win in that time. If that is true, don't you think that there will be a lot of gambling sites being closed since a lot of people are winning their gambling games? Also, if this will be true, then I think a lot of gamblers stopped gambling since who will be a gambler knowing this will still continue to gamble in that certain or the same gambling site, it is just a common sense.

Depends on your definition of disease. I would say it's more of a mental illness than a disease, as when you say disease you tend to think of something that can spread from person to person, like a virus or bacteria. Not that I'm saying that gambling addiction can't be spread between people, because it obviously can due to social influence and peer pressure etc. My verdict, no, it's not a disease, but a mental illness.

Gambling addiction is worst than disease, because it will destroy not only the you but all your family, while disease will only harm you and not your family, although they will also be disturbed but not like the family of gambling addictor. The end of gambling addictor is worse than the end of disease. Anyway ambling is not a disease but an addiction and try not to become addict of it.

When we have some form of mental disorder it also can be considered as disease in medical terms though,and as you said the addiction will leads to some other problems like high blood pressure due to stress which is the result of continuous loss in gambling.But diabetes is the result of uncontrollable level of insulin in blood which has no relation with addictions at all.

i've always found it very strange that things like alcohol, drug and gambling addiction are described as diseases.

it seems much more like a psychological condition to me. to cure it your need your behavior patterns restructured which is not something an operation or drug is likely to solve.

on top of that addiction implies a physical need whereas gambling is a craving or compulsion. an alcoholic or heroin addict may suffer severe physical consequences if they don't get what they're addicted to. it's not quite the same for a gambler but no doubt they're gonna be sad.

But it's a fact that some antidepressants and mood stabilizers may be effective in reducing gambling behavior. Unfortunately drugs are not effective in treating gambling addiction in around 50% of cases but surely there are some positive results. Even if it was just a placebo effect it doesn't matter because the final result is what counts. For example Lithium is one of the best mood stabilizers according to most researchers. You can find a mineral water which contains trace amounts of Lithium and drinking it can help you to overcome gambling addiction.

Of course, people are different and any particular issue should be considered on a case-by-case basis, but I'm sure that for some people just drinking water with Lithium can be helpful.

It will always differ and for those who have made some money or just casually use for their entertainment purpose will reflect that it is not a disease but if you know anybody who has got addicted and eventually losing a lot of money you will obviously think it is a disease.

In my opinion gambling addiction is not a disease because a disease can be traded in hospital but addiction cannot be traded anywhere. An addicted person can leave ambling but not forever. After some time he will start again and this thing distinguishes addiction from disease. Yea we can call gambling as physiological disease and can be treated only by best friends and family members.

Addiction in gambling games is a bad thing and it has been proven against several events in the world.
The majority of addicts experience a bad life and that cannot be avoided.

Gambling is disease.same like addiction to drugs
There was researches done.Whan people gamble brain is emitating some chemic substances.
It is reason  why is so hard to stop gamble
I agree with you.
Gambling addiction is a disease because we talk about addiction, it is a psychological disease and people should get help to recover.
It is indeed a psychological disease since it totally affects the victim's reasoning and ability to make proper decisions. Although, rather than call it a disease, I would rather call it a problem or mental issue. This is the reason why it is always important to at least be able to find some help from social gatherings or shrinks so as to be able to get back those senses which when lost to gambling, is always hard to retrieve.
Actually you are right, mental issue could be a better definition for gambling addiction.
Mental condition of a person assumes to be weak when he doesnít follow the advices of his elders and posh people of his society. I donít know why a person becomes addicted of gambling and not able to quit gambling easily. Continue gambling will take him to debts gradually and this gambling patient is out of his conscious and do not understand the critical situation till he ends.
Right, generally people are not able to understand that harms of gambling till the end. When they realize that, it would be too late.

Depends on your definition of disease. I would say it's more of a mental illness than a disease, as when you say disease you tend to think of something that can spread from person to person, like a virus or bacteria. Not that I'm saying that gambling addiction can't be spread between people, because it obviously can due to social influence and peer pressure etc. My verdict, no, it's not a disease, but a mental illness.

Yes it depends, but sometimes it's only a matter of if you want to become Ill from it or not :)
If you enjoy gambling itsn't actually a disease.
Thats right, if you don't enjoy gambling and are depressed when you gamble because the target profit you put on doesn't reach and you always repeat that mistake, then it's no longer a pleasure in gambling, be careful with addiction because it's a disease that difficult to healed

I think before you engage in gambling you set your target and first is to win money and next is to enjoy it, you will not enjoy it if you do not win that is why many people get addicted in this king of method to earn money. Gambling is one of the bad thing exist in the world many people ruin their life and family because of this. Avoid if you can

You just have to understand that the more you chase for winning and profit you'll be ending bad. Reverse the belief of others by just enjoying the game while your money is at stake.

This is unusual for most of the gamblers but setting your mind that way can reduce the probability of being addicted.

Some people will say gambling addiction is a disease, but some other will say it's not a disease, but it's a bad habit that we need to stay away from the gambling. We have our own opinion about it's a disease or not, but we all agree that playing gambling too long can make us getting lost more money without any chance to recover. It's like too much love will kill you, Queen said  ;D

Disease is something that requires us to take medication given by a doctor to cure it, in contrast to gambling that is only bad habits or bad hobbies that continue to be done even though they know it is bad. Addiction in gambling cannot be cured by medication given by a doctor's prescription, to eliminate gambling addiction we only need to leave it in any way you can, so you will slowly get rid of your addiction in gambling.

Well, at first gamblers will have a plan like that never chase for winning and profit, but once your bet start losing, you will chase for winning because you want win back your loses.

i've always found it very strange that things like alcohol, drug and gambling addiction are described as diseases.

it seems much more like a psychological condition to me. to cure it your need your behavior patterns restructured which is not something an operation or drug is likely to solve.

on top of that addiction implies a physical need whereas gambling is a craving or compulsion. an alcoholic or heroin addict may suffer severe physical consequences if they don't get what they're addicted to. it's not quite the same for a gambler but no doubt they're gonna be sad.

But it's a fact that some antidepressants and mood stabilizers may be effective in reducing gambling behavior. Unfortunately drugs are not effective in treating gambling addiction in around 50% of cases but surely there are some positive results. Even if it was just a placebo effect it doesn't matter because the final result is what counts. For example Lithium is one of the best mood stabilizers according to most researchers. You can find a mineral water which contains trace amounts of Lithium and drinking it can help you to overcome gambling addiction.

Of course, people are different and any particular issue should be considered on a case-by-case basis, but I'm sure that for some people just drinking water with Lithium can be helpful.
Disease and addiction are two different things and you cannot say that gambling is a disease. It is an addiction and cannot be leaved easily. On the other hand disease can be controlled easily if minor problem. Other big difference is that disease is harmful only for the patient, but gambling is evil for the whole community. It has destroyed lot of individuals and families as well.

I don't consider gambling addiction to be a disease.  It's better to call it a mental condition.  I do think those that develop addictive tendencies usually have a history of addiction in their family.  It can be drinking, drugs, t.v., or even sex.  Some people can do drugs once and not get addicted but others will be hooked on the dopamine. We all have different genetic makeup so we shouldn't judge too harshly on those with addiction problems.

But medication help is more important to save someone when they are in serious addiction which can be considered as disease? There are different kind of addiction and also in different levels so most of them no need medical help but psychological advice will be much important when someone want to recover.

I call it a disease too. Mental disease  :D.
Actually governments forbid illegal gambling. They call it illegal gambling for not having permit but they legalize casinos and other gamblings like lotto, horse racing and other recognized gambling activities. I cant see the point for doing so because gamblers still manage to gamble secretly in illegal games. If the government really care for the welfare of the people, then they will not permit any of those permitted ones. All that the government care is the revenue that these activities bring them.

I am not really a gambler but I heard about people who can't quit it and keep losing lots of money. Do you think the attitude to gambling addiction should be the same as to drug addiction?

First things first, an addiction is when we're stuck into something due to our mind constantly thinking about the same and it depends totally upon us whether to get out of it or not, whereas a disease is when we're diagnosed with something that's in our body due to various factors such as unhygienic environment, unhealthy foods, etc. and our mind has nothing to do with it and a disease can be healed with medicines, so comparing both of them is useless.
Drug is a part of gambling (if casinos allow drugs at their premises) and I somewhere agree that both type of addictions are almost same as both are not good, one for health and other for finance.

Quote
Should the government forbid gambling and treat somehow those who are addicted?

Gambling is one type of a group of games only but in a different genre, so no need to forbid any gambling activities, and about treating those who're addicted, no one can stop you from doing it unless you're not going to choose the right path. Still, ask them to go to different gambling awareness websites to learn more on how to stop themselves from going on those casinos/websites.

Honestly, Symphonized was right because anything that causes disorders or malfunction in human system or habit can be called disease and don't believe it everyone who is addicted to gambling have the history of addiction in their family cause the gang or friend that ones mingle with will determine ones addiction.

Well it's quite possible to take pleasure in things that are addictive, for example drug addicts tend to enjoy the drugs they are addicted to, and don't see it as a problem until it is too late.

Gambling addiction is similar. Everybody can agree that gambling is perfectly fine up until a point, but once you start damaging yours and everybody elses life, then it can be considered an addiction, particularly if you make efforts to stop, but you simply cannot due to the dependency.

A lot of gambling portals now take it upon themselves to block or bar those suspected of being addicts, similar to how a bar might cut you off after too many drinks. I think it's for the best as really external intervention is needed for some of these cases.

In my opinion gambling addiction is not a disease because a disease can be traded in hospital but addiction cannot be traded anywhere. An addicted person can leave ambling but not forever. After some time he will start again and this thing distinguishes addiction from disease. Yea we can call gambling as physiological disease and can be treated only by best friends and family members.
In my opinion gambling is an addiction and not disease, because you cannot quit gambling and when your disease accedes it will not leave you till death. One you cannot leave and the other does not leave you. This is the difference between addiction and disease. Therefore I can say that gambling is an addiction because you cannot leave it until it destroys you.

Just like any form of addiction, gambling can result to one's dependence and lack of control towards gambling even if this could result to more losses than winning. It's a mental condition. The mind has been conditioned to play more as this triggers a positive effect to the gambler. And just like any form of addiction, it has to be controlled before it could become uncontrollable and result negatively.
