Title: Understand addiction!
Post by: Findingnemo on February 04, 2019, 05:39:13 AM
Addiction means your mind want something in a regular basis to satisfy the dopamine needs.

Your brain has three status of living conscious,subconscious and unconscious.In the stage of conscious your mind knows what you are doing but on other stages you may not unaware of what is happening even if you are living in it.

So if you are having some habit to make you pleasure on short term like gambling,porn or dating and other lot of stuffs will become an addiction when you want that happiness everyday.But these things is not your long term pleasure it just only meant to be short term but your mind turning it into long term by making you keep doing it very often because your subconscious and unconscious make it as a habit already since you are doing it already.

If you want quit addiction from something then you may need to change your life style and concentrate on long term pleasure like building your career or doing workouts and getting success in your business like that.

And another advice is Be with People whoís the lifestyle is better without vices,find circle of friends in which will bring you more closer to Good things than enjoying those mentioned bad habits

Always remember that most of the time people that surrounds us make big influence in our daily living and also affect our attitudes,so living with God fearing people helps preventing the possibilities of being addicted

And another thing,if you think that having all what OPs mentioned or some of those better go talk to the specialist before itís too late

You can't quit addiction by just simply changing your life style..
We have to know the main source of addiction, and we need to cut that into our life.
In this sense, it's gambling so we simply stop gambling, and that's a hard thing to do when you are addicted.

You can't simply quit anything so you need to have something more concentrated on your life which can help you to forget that addiction,but not easy tho.

Try to build a new habit that different than the other. If you were often playing gambling, then you can try to go to another place, make a book of your journey, always prevent your mind from playing gambling. Asking the other people to comes with you will be better because she/he will always remind you and try to prevent to go to gambling places. It's all about how we can block the mind to think about gambling all day long and make another activity will be a solution.

The sad fact some of these addicted gamblers already thought and put it on their minds that gambling is their long term career so there's no impact for them if we'll remind them to think of something long term like their careers.

It's easier said that done, mate.

The first thing that a addict should do is that admit to himself that he has a condition. Otherwise, if he is on denial, no one can help him. Yes there should be supports group like families, friends and medical help. But if refuse and admit that he is an addict then there's nothing we can do about it.

If he was able to hurdle this first step then I'm sure it will help him a lot and he/she can channel the mindsets to different thing to get ride of his addiction, it will be very hard and difficult in the beginning, but if he wanted to quit for good, then absolutely he can do it.

They will understand it's not when they loss everything.
Addiction is a disease, if not treated early, it will result to a more serious problem and it will affect your life.
I've known some people who loss their house because of gambling and it's like losing your family too.

That is the first step, once you understand that you are addicted the next steps will be easier. These other steps consist of seeking professional help, if you are not into professional help then you should change your friends and find someone which will often prefer to run or another activity compared to gambling.

I wish that if it were only up to understanding what your condition is, i.e., Addiction to Gambling, it would make you easily quit it and make sure that you won't do it again, but it's not. We are people who have flaws and accepting that you are an addict is the first step. It's like what the others have said already in this thread. If only it were that easy, no one would be having a hard time in the world.

Its true but that is only theoretical thing, healing addiction is not as easy as it said in the text book, it need a big determination from the people that addicted and support from the family and friends, a small trigger may caused the subconscious mind to wake up and become addicted again, so the first step to heal the addiction is to fill your time with other positive activity, avoid completely the things that you addicted

In a minds of well decided person, self will always been a key for successful changing lifestyle, if you really desire to change back to your original self
you just need to find those things that you already doing before this habit showed up, you can start rebuilding yourself by taking the old paths where
you live free of corruptions.

I agree with you, It's not that easy but if you truly like to do it nobody can stop you but your own-self alone.

You need a proper discipline on yourself if you want to quit. But for me, gambling is something that can be done without being addicted to it if you just do it for leisure.

But the problem with gambling addicts is that they have a close mindset and if you call them about their addiction, it may end up negatively to them and it will cause friction between you and that person. So it's a delicate situation to approach so you need a lot of psychology behind, before telling it to them straight in the face.

Everything you said is what I am agree with but not with the above quoted statement. Changing lifestyle is not a solution to quit addition for sure. Changing lifestyle or workout may help somehow but the main and only solution is the will power. It can either come from inside or can be built through professional counseling. If a person doesn't have will power to quit addiction, nothing will work. Only a person has gone through such addiction, will understand what I am talking about.

However, small short-term periods become long-term... I think that it is a bit of good advice to change your lifestyle if you want to quit your addiction. If you chance your lifestyle then you start doing things that you are passionate about and you forget things that are of less importance, in this case, gambling... There are many ways to stop gambling, you just have to be dedicated to doing it.

Yeah this is something that I think would actually work, but only if you're not too deep into the addiction.
Some people just aren't able to do anything themselves to quit their addiction, no matter how hard they try.

So, the only way out for them would be to seek professional help, otherwise they'll just fall into the same trap over and over again.

It is greed you should be scared of. Addiction is triggered by the greed. Without greed addiction is harmless. I mean you can get addicted to read books and that's a good thing. You can get addicted to math and that's a good thing too. Addiction is a weapon. Making it a good weapon or bad one depends on you.

Stating the science of addiction is so interesting. Youre actually right refarding this ine because ive read an article about this before. With the mind that causes addiction means its also the mind that can cure it. You should put in your mind how to transfer that temporary happy pill you want into long term. With this you can focus on more important things than gambling.

When it comes to gambling addiction then greed is one of the reason to be in that situation but greed is also form of pleasure which manipulates the minds so being in control is the way to quit gambling.

yes the topic with the person addicted can often turn into a very
negative discussion.

there is a lot of psychology behind it and the healing of it.

I see people I grew up with who do not work but spend their days
either in the pub and the Betting shop next door, it is like this is
all they have to do, it is their daily routine so to them is probably
normal and not looked on as an unhealthy addiction.

In general if you want to quit addiction it is possible only by making your brain to quit it which is remove that addicted habit from unconscious memory and it only happens by filling that memory with other stuffs so I am right it is possible by changing habits.But changing habit is not easy it takes months to practice and keep continuing it is very huge hard work but no need of medical help when it comes to gambling addiction.

Addiction in gambling is different, it can ruin your life and if you are not able to go beyond that point you journey will be done. We have to understand that addiction is not good in gambling and we must take control of it, just play normally without expecting big profit do it passively and not by greed.

In the Op a clear definition is given to the term addiction. It clearly shows that addiction will not happen with gambling alone, it'll happen with each and every activity of a human life. To be out of addiction, a perfect scheduling and moving forward focusing on the goal achievement.

Maybe we need to go to psychiatric and ask him/her to hypnotize us and keep saying to the subconscious to not playing gambling, and we want to quit from gambling. I think it will work well because it's like a reset button on the computer and we have a large supercomputer in the living conscious, subconscious and unconscious. And by doing that, I think we can solve the addiction to gambling, and we can stop playing gambling forever.

Addiction is not only defies as for gambling because this is happening in every areas of humanity sometimes theres a good but mostly baddest,helping others sometimes can be call addiction but it is a right aspect while,gambling,womanizing,illegal drugs,smoking and alcohol drinking,but what Op has saying this is not that easy because this is not just a simple problem with a simple solutions

It is greed you should be scared of. Addiction is triggered by the greed.

Emotions, I think is the correct term. Greed is a factor emotion (but as for all, it seems to be the most recognizable of all). Addiction is triggered by the action of the user, Greed will only take effect once the the user's emotions triggers.

Addiction in gambling is different.

Well, I'd agree at some point. But addiction in general is can still ruin one's life. I.e. Addiction in alcohol, drugs, and etc. those type of addiction is has no difference in affecting one's life like gambling. TBH, too much is too much and for me any type of addiction can really make one's life miserable at some point.

It's easier said that done, mate.

On point!

The first thing that a addict should do is that admit to himself that he has a condition. Otherwise, if he is on denial, no one can help him. Yes there should be supports group like families, friends and medical help. But if refuse and admit that he is an addict then there's nothing we can do about it.

In addition to this accepting, the fact is quite hard for those who are experiencing, and it's really a challenge.

If he was able to hurdle this first step then I'm sure it will help him a lot and he/she can channel the mindsets to different thing to get ride of his addiction, it will be very hard and difficult in the beginning, but if he wanted to quit for good, then absolutely he can do it.

A lot of people, do fail on the first step and lose his/her battle. Despite all the help they receive.

I'm just not a believer in hypnotizing people, I think it is just snake oil.  IF it was that easy to quit addictions there wouldn't be anyone addicted to drugs or video games.  Placebo is very strong though and if the participant believes it work then it may actually help.

It's your own decision why you became addicted so its also your responsibility to move away, you are correct that it is not easy to resolve this issue
since it's already inside your routine, but you can change it as you need to control your activity, help coming from your friends can make things much
easier, building good relationship and start renewing or start creating new ones will help the process.

Every addiction is the same and should be treated in many options that have application to many different kinds of addictions. If you have managed to quit an addiction in the past with an exact way, you can apply the same to the gambling addiction and it might work. It is up to you if you will react to that or not.

You can't quit addiction by just simply changing your life style..
We have to know the main source of addiction, and we need to cut that into our life.
In this sense, it's gambling so we simply stop gambling, and that's a hard thing to do when you are addicted.

After getting a crushing defeat and making life a mess, maybe addicts can be aware and begin to force themselves to stop their habits. Indeed, a way to break habits that already merge with our minds cannot be done instantly. Sometimes, help from other people is needed because many addicts aren't realize with the dangers that threaten them later. The concern of the closest people is needed to deal with acute level addicts.

Addiction is when your body won't stop to do what you are not supposed to do but since you were too stubborn you will just ignore it and continue to feed your stubbornness until you left out of nothing. But we know that at the back of your head you keep telling to yourself that this is the last time I'm going play this game but you never listen to it.

People should understand addiction because it is just like stress it keeps giving you a problem. But once you know how to control it you won't have a problem managing your own money. If people have an addiction problems they must have to seek a person who can help them the most (i.e. psychiatrist, friends, parents). Lots of people who played gambling was buried in debt with thousands and millions of dollars.

Addiction means your mind want something in a regular basis to satisfy the dopamine needs.

Your brain has three status of living conscious,subconscious and unconscious.In the stage of conscious your mind knows what you are doing but on other stages you may not unaware of what is happening even if you are living in it.

So if you are having some habit to make you pleasure on short term like gambling,porn or dating and other lot of stuffs will become an addiction when you want that happiness everyday.But these things is not your long term pleasure it just only meant to be short term but your mind turning it into long term by making you keep doing it very often because your subconscious and unconscious make it as a habit already since you are doing it already.

If you want quit addiction from something then you may need to change your life style and concentrate on long term pleasure like building your career or doing workouts and getting success in your business like that.
Yes you are advisor almost right I also heard and seen a movie about addiction that says when you are addicted doing the workouts and changing the lifestyle will make you to get out from the addiction it will be more convenient advice for me to get out from addiction thank you for your advice.

You are right the addiction was definitely happen because of overconfidence and involving higher than a normal person but the solution for getting out of addiction is simple but following them arr to be more difficult for a person to rebuilt his life and proper guidance will make you the difficulty more easier.

If your not knowledgeable about addiction then you can really be like that so better first to study this before you try because it so hard to control if you already became one like you will end up that you lose all like money,family and friend that very important in life

So always pay attention to not be an addict like play only sometimes and not use big amount of money then do gambling for knowledge and to experience fun like remember that this is created by that

That's right,I want to eliminate that habit.Well Pornography gambling is inherent in my soul and such pleasure is only temporary.Planning to build my first career like your said but I doubt whether the addiction will appear again or not cause there is definitely a desire to do it?Trying to stop the habit repeatedly but can't,other alternatives become a second way for me but it's still difficult.

Pornography gambling? This is my first time to get heard of that. Are you serious with this or there is an "and" in between?

Anyway, I can feel you bro. It is very hard to change especially when you are already imprisoned by such evil things but remember that there's always hope. My advice is find your motivation first because it will serve as the source of your urge to change (e.g. Family).

If you want quit addiction from something then you may need to change your life style and concentrate on long term pleasure like building your career or doing workouts and getting success in your business like that.
You can't quit addiction by just simply changing your life style..
We have to know the main source of addiction, and we need to cut that into our life.
In this sense, it's gambling so we simply stop gambling, and that's a hard thing to do when you are addicted.
Yeah because the reason someone plays gambling can be different, changing lifestyle does not necessarily make them stop. we have to know the reason why they gamble continuously. if the cause is because they don't have income and other jobs, then build a career, can be the right thing

People when starts to run behind money from gambling this is the start of addiction and slowly the user might not even know when they are addicted to it . Also as you being gambling from long time try to take a break in between and see if you can stay without it else quite possible even you are addicted to it .

For all those things which involve in gaining money, it is very common for the people to become addicted to it. The bad thing about addiction is that we are unable to distinguish between Win and Loss and are so much involve in game that we do not see the dark side of the game. As long as we use mind in playing, not our emotions, we are not addicted.

There is a very thin line between addiction and greediness and most of the time it is the greed that make us addicted to gambling. If we take gambling as a business and play it carefully, then not only we can gain benefit but at the same time we will not let our emotions take control over us and make us loss.

Actually no one want to be addicted but unfortunately we are addicted somehow in somewhere. Everything we start just for hobby or for fun. But day by day it become habit and eventually we fall in addiction. However, gambling addiction is different from others. This addiction we can't leave even we try, I mean who have falled already. Even you loss or on profit both is responsible for addiction. If loss then your are continue to play fore recover, if won then continue play for more profit. But addiction is bad always. Just play by limit, don't be addicted. Just play for fun and try to avoid addiction. Be busy on others work especially on real life. Then addiction will not affect you.

Understanding about gambling addiction well in advance before entering into gambling is more important for everyone. I do believe there must be some initiative against gambling addictions is needed for the sake of welfare of this community. Because, it is always good to know the pros and cons about what we're going to do.

But, unfortunately most people are just looking into the benefits of gambling like making unlimited and easy money and finding big entertainments but never looking into the negative sides of gambling which must be getting addicted to  gambling at no time and without realizing that they are undergoing the process of gambling addictions.

Addiction means your mind want something in a regular basis to satisfy the dopamine needs.

Your brain has three status of living conscious,subconscious and unconscious.In the stage of conscious your mind knows what you are doing but on other stages you may not unaware of what is happening even if you are living in it.

So if you are having some habit to make you pleasure on short term like gambling,porn or dating and other lot of stuffs will become an addiction when you want that happiness everyday.But these things is not your long term pleasure it just only meant to be short term but your mind turning it into long term by making you keep doing it very often because your subconscious and unconscious make it as a habit already since you are doing it already.

If you want quit addiction from something then you may need to change your life style and concentrate on long term pleasure like building your career or doing workouts and getting success in your business like that.
Thats true, exactly what's the meaning of addiction, and if we have some other things to make us success and at the same time make us long term pleasure then much better than to lose a lot of your money, effort and time from that addiction.

If you manage to gamble all the time and continuously, it must have been a habit for you. That's a fact. If you try to bet for a long time and stop for a long time too, that would be better. Because when you do it like that, the retention of the happy feeling with the gambling won't make you do it all the time. It's better for that self-control.

It may be a situation in which someone has no work, but has a lot of savings, or for example won the lottery. It is people who do not have a job who very easy become addicted to gambling and lose everything in a very short time. Just finding a job and concentrating on a career can protect against such a scenario.

Regular basis must be the core reason why we are getting addicted to gambling. If you are able to take a break at our wish then we can avoid gambling addictions. Gambling addictions is highly dangerous one unlike how most people are imagining about it.

Avoiding the chances of getting gambling addictions from the beginning days must be more important in gambling compared to why we are entering into gambling. It means you should not focus on your targets of gambling but you should focus ONLY on avoiding its addictions, so that you may lead a happier life regardless of you will be achieving your goal in gambling or not.

Yes.A person who's really addicted to some vices like gambling will find it hard to understand himself since he is not already in his proper thinking.Surely he will realized his mistakes but already late and the damages has been done already.With this,he should change his way of thinking and should avoid his vices already so that addiction won't repeat its history again.

You have given addiction a succinct definition and an all encompassing one at that but the solution to it seems something too simple in that if that is the case, then we won't even have people getting addicted to any thing in the first place. My point is, everyone dealing with one addiction or the others knows that there is need to get out of it or work more, get successful but the question really is how?. A lot of people would go to work in the morning and then come back home to relax thats when they gamble should that person continue working even when the office has closed in other to beat the addiction? Of course that is not possible.

Identifying that there is a problem is the first step after which to follow with gradual withdrawal and not getting tired of keeping to it.

People who played gambling were just enjoying the leisure but unaware of the effect but as soon as they realized what was happening it was already late to regret it. That's why i think what you have said was intended for the present and future gamblers to understand what is the consequences of entering in gambling world.

But after all this time I realized nothing could change my life if I continued to gamble, until finally slowly I could change these habits by filling my time by doing other activities such as being more active in socializing etc. That way, now I'm just gambling if I really have to do it, because every gambler has other necessities or times like something that requires for betting.

If you think gambling could be a one of a source of income then you are completely wrong. Owners of gambling establishments are the one who has jobs, not the gamblers, we gamblers are just simply helping them to make their business successful.

Addiction is not just something you can say "i got this" but when you were actually dealing with it. It's quite the hardest part to let go especially if you used to but if you are in your right mind and could still think thoroughly all of the situations, then you are improving.

Sometimes wise flowery words won't be enough with them that's why some of them really need a counseling or rehabilitation before it gets worst. A good friend or company will help to cope everyday while getting busy to avoid going again to the place that is causing him more stress than usual. And a proper control of the money so that he would not spend it on gambling.

It really boils down as how to look at gambling then. If you see gambling jus a form of fun and enjoyment then you can easily control yourself. But if you're a person who see it as a form of making money, easy money eventually you might end up just like the rest of the gamblers and you will be another statistics.

For those who have been addicted and recovered, I salute them because it really takes a toll on you, whether emotional, physical or even financial. It's very difficult but it doesn't mean it can't be done.

It is because they always play gambling every day and they don't know how to control his mind. Once they started to gamble, it could attract them deeper to the games and spend more money because they feel they are know how to control themselves but the truth, they will lose more money without they know. And for every people who are trying playing gambling, knowing yourself will be the best way to control from addicted to gambling.

The sad fact some of these addicted gamblers already thought and put it on their minds that gambling is their long term career so there's no impact for them if we'll remind them to think of something long term like their careers.
They will understand it's not when they loss everything.
Addiction is a disease, if not treated early, it will result to a more serious problem and it will affect your life.
I've known some people who loss their house because of gambling and it's like losing your family too.
They are aware of it but they don't want to be treated, it's hard also in their part to have that kind of addiction. It's not easy for them to dispose that kind of activity and it's already on their mind.

They need help in different ways, family and friends support, etc just to get rid of it.

I agree but  Some addiction are quite severe and difficult to quit .. .that  you  most likely experience withdrawal symptoms once you try quitting. Makes me wonder if gamblers go through terrible withdrawal symptoms.
Still you can quit any kind of addiction but need effort and lot of help from the outside of you.The rehabilitation centre will help the overcome any kind of addiction but most of the addicted gamblers won't agree that they were addicted to it.

Who doesn't want to grt treated? No one, everybody does. Actually youal already point it out, what is happening is that the they can't rid of the disease even they want to because it already became part of their body somehow thus seems very hard to cure. It's like escaping in a labyrinth but it was too complex to solve.

I know that the struggle is real even I haven't experience this kind of thing since I know someone (one of the celebrities here in our country) who is suffering on such addiction. Now I realized that the hardest opponent you might encounter is your own demon.

Avoiding the chances of getting gambling addictions from the beginning days must be more important in gambling compared to why we are entering into gambling. It means you should not focus on your targets of gambling but you should focus ONLY on avoiding its addictions, so that you may lead a happier life regardless of you will be achieving your goal in gambling or not.
That must be really a hard truth about gambling. Still, this is the reality and this is how we should safeguard ourselves to escape from gambling dangers.

Focusing only on targets of gambling might lead becoming a frequent gambler which is the reason why we are getting gambling addictions. But, I believe a gambler will not be able to focus on avoiding gambling addictions all the times because gambling excitements will lead to deviate your focus so that you may get addicted at any time. This is the basic nature of gambling on which gambling is deceiving all of us.

But how they are going to agree that they were addicted,only if they agree that addicted and want to recover then all these things can be done,when they don't want to get recovered or even they never knows that how they were in will make the situation more and more complicated everyday.That is the reason addicted while alone is very dangerous thing to be in.

Can you incorporate a 'habit' into these three categories as you said conscious, subconscious and unconscious?

I think addiction is a habit, you cannot change it simply. To change your lifestyle like 'eating' for an example which you always did everyday. In other to change how you eat from rice to vegetables, your stomach needs time to adjust it. It may take several weeks for your stomach to be comfortable with a new diet (with vegetables).

Likewise with addicts, for them to do gambling is a habit that they have done every day. For someone who has undergone this habit for a long time, they don't need to be aware of the dangers of gambling, the dangers of addicts and other dangers that are always said by many people. Actually they already know what people say and I think they have understood the consequences that will be experienced, and maybe even for some of them to become addicts they won't find a consequence in their lifetime.

Habit is something we are practicing everyday and we no need to tell our mind to do that thing after a while we practices it,it will keep doing the things as always like you said eating but when you want to change your eating style then you need to practice it like for few weeks and then it will move to your subconscious or later then you started to accumulate it.

They are the last person to help you and you must be submissive to be treated on your problem.
Everyone should consider addiction a light problem because when it grows within you, it will be gonna be a hard problem to treat.
Your gamble and stay connected with your family as they are the one who will first notice if you have that sign.

I think most gambling players must have experienced addiction either short or long time. because when you win you will certainly get a sensation of pleasure and that will make you forget the plan that you have made, once again control is very important

That will make them lose everything. If they don't care about that, it doesn't take too long to see they will ruin their lives and they will have a big regret, but unfortunately, everything was to be late. But I am sure that they deserve for the second chance as long as they want to wake up from the worst situations and trying to get any chance to fix their life. There will be a way to solve the problem especially if they have a strong mind to get out from the bad situations.

Addiction means your mind want something in a regular basis to satisfy the dopamine needs.

Your brain has three status of living conscious,subconscious and unconscious.In the stage of conscious your mind knows what you are doing but on other stages you may not unaware of what is happening even if you are living in it.

So if you are having some habit to make you pleasure on short term like gambling,porn or dating and other lot of stuffs will become an addiction when you want that happiness everyday.But these things is not your long term pleasure it just only meant to be short term but your mind turning it into long term by making you keep doing it very often because your subconscious and unconscious make it as a habit already since you are doing it already.

If you want quit addiction from something then you may need to change your life style and concentrate on long term pleasure like building your career or doing workouts and getting success in your business like that.
Addiction is a complicated thing and easily found on most of the people in this world for some kind of addiction some is good but most of them doing bad things to the addicted people so people need to aware of what they were doing to keep them away from addiction just concentrating and life goals will be keep us motivated to do the things which are needed in our long term happiness.

Yeah right, helping yourself to fight addiction is something I can consider hard. Your body asks you to the thing because of your
subconscious. It's all because of the habit your dopamine adapted and will always ask you to do so.

Deeds, vice and habits are the addictions we can actually easily cure. But the addiction related to chemicals is something that we need to work hard to stop. Just like smoking cigarettes, weeds and so on. Those chemicals will affect your brain and your nervous system that it would make yourself find those chemicals and take it in your body system because your brain won't allow you not to take them.

Rehabilitation is the only thing that is proven and effective to help you stop your addiction and obsession about things. Spiritual also have a vital part to help you get out of that misery. But yes, there is a lot of different addictions and not all of them are bad.

But here's the thing.
If a thing you do is something negative, it would be considered as an addiction. But if your thing is somehow positive, we can actually call it a good habit.

I wouldn't call that stupid, I'm more concern of their situation that they should understand that it's not good for everyone to have this as their career. Some are successful but not everyone can be successful with it.

You are too concerned to help them, but that will not work with the addiction kind of mindset. They should understand gambling is just a game not more than that. I really do not gamble all the time. If I wish to bet on any club teams that time alone I just do that man.

Sounds like you got better understanding about how to handle gambling addictions. Because, it is not easy to control ourselves after winning big due to the greediness, our emotions will push to continue regardless of whatever results will be finding after a big winning. Controlling ourselves well in advance before experiencing any losses will save us from getting addicted.

Most people are getting addicted in the process of recovering their losses but they were into gambling for the reason of repeating their winning moments.

Understanding what is gambling addiction and how to prevent it or how to handle if by any chance we got addicted kind of knowledge is more important for any gambler once they entering into gambling. But, people are suffering as they are not finding time to educate themselves about these facts of gambling and gambling addictions.

can't commit and they keep on refusing this matter, personal attentions and guidance should be place and caring with someone who really
having this sign will make them realize that they already needs help.

When did someone get addicted to something because he don't like it? That is absurd right? Don't ask the obvious. I don't know why are you qouting @FlightyPouch as what you are saying, he said better. Even if you are doing something as your habit, you can still tell that you are not addicted since you already said it, it is just out of habit, habit and addiction is different. You can't say that you are addicted since you are doing something that is just your habit, you don't understand. Addiction is something that you do without you realizing or thinking that you want to do it, it just happens. You will not be able to stop yourself, you don't need to remind yourself because that is registered to your mind and most of the time it is always on point time that you always do.

So we can say that addiction will not come from gambling only because if we like something and we often do that thing, then it considered to addicted :D
But yes, addiction to gambling is more dangerous than the other things because we can lose everything, we can ruin our life. But we can also cure the addiction if we have the power to quit and we do not give up to addicted.
The circle of addiction must be cut so we can start a new habit and do something else which is not related to games, money, or gambling.

This is my first time to read up 3 types of consciousness since I don't really mind on how these things do work on one's self and regarding with the line I have quoted, quitting gambling sounds very easy but the fact that this is the hardest thing which most addicted gamblers do face on. Addiction isn't something that can be pulled out easily, even how hard you do try if you are not sensible or serious on quitting then you would still end up on playing once again.

Quitting addiction may be possible once we realize how we got into addictions so that when we change up our life-style then there will be a possibilities to get rid off it. First we need to study what caused and what were the reasons to become addicted to gambling. Without analyzing ourselves, we may not able to conquer addictions as its a psychological player hence we need to fight against ourselves to pull it out.

if you have any intention to gamble again don't spend too much time that is the thing can save your from addicted to anything.
Yes, how frequent and how long sticking with things decide the chances for getting addicted. Not spending too much time also is alone not enough as going for gambling on daily basis but for short period of time also may cause addictions over the time. A better approach may differ person to person but having control to stop or even quit may help to prevent addictions better.

You are too concerned to help them, but that will not work with the addiction kind of mindset. They should understand gambling is just a game not more than that. I really do not gamble all the time. If I wish to bet on any club teams that time alone I just do that man.
Instead of invest on gambling site you may ideally think and create a gambling site. That may create an income for you...
Yeah I'm too concerned to them because I experienced that kind of situation before and no one helped me until I was able to overcome addiction. I know it won't work to them but I'm sure that somehow it will help them in the future.
Thats good to know you overcome your addiction by yourself which means you have strong willingness towards to quit gambling,if you have any intention to gamble again don't spend too much time that is the thing can save your from addicted to anything.
Overcoming addiction isn't simple, as mentioned in the quote it is good to that he have overcome by himself. It's good to go with limits rather than getting into addiction. Most of us will mistake in this regard, good is to take at least a break and once again get into gambling. This will let the user get out of loss and avoid user from getting addicted.

Realization is part of healing, when you're broke and you can't have some help even from your relatives you have to fight alone. Though it's hard to do this and it's easier to fight addiction with people beside you.

I'm still gambling but not the same as before.

If you want quit addiction from something then you may need to change your life style and concentrate on long term pleasure like building your career or doing workouts and getting success in your business like that.
You can't quit addiction by just simply changing your life style.
We have to know the main source of addiction, and we need to cut that into our life.
In this sense, it's gambling so we simply stop gambling, and that's a hard thing to do when you are addicted.
Many of us are being addicted to a thing which they're always used to and it is not easy for them to cut that into their life because they have a lot of experience on it or another reason for making them feel happy and enjoy their life.

When you are addicted into something, it is hard for yourself to admit that you are already addicted to it. At first you will be in the state that you can't make your day without doing that. It is not just that it is another reason for you to be happy or to enjoy life, in your mind, you think that what you are doing, you will be able to do that in the long run as long as you can and no one can stop you.

If you don't include being happy or enjoy the life, what's the purpose of being addicted to something? It is not easy to know if you're really addicted once you make it as a habit or a routine and besides there's always a purpose why you are doing those kinds of stuff not just in your mind or you're doing it just for nothing.

I think that is clear, if you are addicted in gambling or maybe online games, you are happy and enjoying that. If you are addicted you are not enjoying the life since you are just enjoying what you are doing. Yes, there is always a purpose and most ofthe time, in gambling our purpose is to earn or win a lot of money.

Addiction isn't something that can be pulled out easily, even how hard you do try if you are not sensible or serious on quitting then you would still end up on playing once again.
Quitting addiction may be possible once we realize how we got into addictions so that when we change up our life-style then there will be a possibilities to get rid off it. First we need to study what caused and what were the reasons to become addicted to gambling. Without analyzing ourselves, we may not able to conquer addictions as its a psychological player hence we need to fight against ourselves to pull it out.
When we do play gambling then we should not really wait for ourselves to get into the point where do hit up by addiction.Self awareness or being sensible with your actions
would be the things that would help you out.There are players or gamblers who do play regularly but still don't consider themselves as addicted ones.They do know how to done it
with moderation and with their limitation and as long you aren't risking too much then you are still on the right path.

Addiction doesn't happens without reason, in most of the cases the sudden need for money is the one that makes people become addicted to the gambling expecting big money in short time period. This won't happen as predicted, when the user experience loss, he further keeps on trying to get back the loss leading to addiction. None enjoys addiction, it happens due to the situation.

Even if they didn't lose much money or gained from gambling the action they were doing everyday is an addiction they made it as habit and most of the regular gambler can't live without betting so limiting ourselves from how long is also needed for a sensible gambler.

That's the way to stay out of your focus in gambling.
I just want to clarify things from you, you said your are addicted, I think you are already out of control the moment you get addicted.
Maybe you were able to heal yourself from addiction, because if not, you cannot have self control when you are gambling.

But if you can find other hobbies or interest, then I suggest you use that hobby as your new way to prevent your mind to keep playing gambling.

Some people addicted to games and many of the people who were gambling for the money so people who want to be in control while gambling need to control their greed before doing anything.If someone have less interest on gambling or anything they were doing they are ot addicted but if they were doing it regularly with when to stop and when to contiue they are the best gamblers.

Yes, if the people know more about how to takes control the feeling of greedy and fear in gambling games, they will not get the addiction in gambling games and the gambling games will be really really for entertainment in cryptocurrencies space. Unfortunatelly there are no many people who know about it and they are losing their control and their money in gambling games and more bad they blame the gambling games because their mistake actually.

That will need something to keep our mindset to control ourselves from gambling, and that is not as easy as it said. But I am sure that we can do that, no matter if it is hard, we can do whatever it takes to control ourselves from the addictions. And when we can control our mind, I am sure that when we are playing gambling, we can quit gambling without any problem because we are still aware that our life is more important than only playing gambling.

Addiction means your mind want something in a regular basis to satisfy the dopamine needs.

Your brain has three status of living conscious,subconscious and unconscious.In the stage of conscious your mind knows what you are doing but on other stages you may not unaware of what is happening even if you are living in it.

So if you are having some habit to make you pleasure on short term like gambling,porn or dating and other lot of stuffs will become an addiction when you want that happiness everyday.But these things is not your long term pleasure it just only meant to be short term but your mind turning it into long term by making you keep doing it very often because your subconscious and unconscious make it as a habit already since you are doing it already.

If you want quit addiction from something then you may need to change your life style and concentrate on long term pleasure like building your career or doing workouts and getting success in your business like that.

Addiction is when your "happiness" comes from consumption,not creation.All the well known addictions are related to consuming something(porn,gaming,cigars).Gambling is a little bit different,because of the false belief that you are "investing" and "making money" out of it.Dopamine fasting might help against addictions.

Addiction in general is fleshy, it is the desire of the flesh and the flesh is never satisfied. When you see, it is good to play and win it is the lust of the eyes that is dragging you to do it, if you win, it is the pride of life that you possess something and you want more and you don't want to stop because your unsatisfied desire still wants more. It is not easy to come out of it, the more you tell yourself you don't want anymore the more you desire to continue on doing.

It is only through the renewal of the mind you can stop this addiction. Changing of perspective because as long as you enjoy it and you regard it as something good, you will never stop it. That is why there's a lot of gamblers who's gone broke not only finacially but also have a broken family as a result of this addiction.

Expecting to become a millionaire easily from gambling will only make you more greedy and continue to gamble without your awareness until you become an addict. Gambling is not an easy way to become a millionaire and it would be nice if gambling only with money that can be spent, which means you don't go crazy when you continue to lose, keep controlling yourself so you don't go bankrupt just by gambling.

I agree.Becoming a millionaire in gambling in just a short period of time might be very impossible.Gambling is more of loses rather than wins.So if you become addicted to gambling,you will think most of the things that are too possible to happen and you will be doing the things that a proper person is not capable of doing.So as much as possible,prevent gambling addiction because once you're into it,you might find it hard to get out from there.

That's because they over think about gambling and they are thinking that there is easy money to take but in the end, they are the one who give money to the casino. Realization is too hard especially when we don't want to listen and take advice from seniors or from other gamblers.

Indeed and most of the time gamblers come to realize the fact there's no such easy money when nothing have left to them but the regrets of spending their money for the hope they can get rich in snap.

Chasing your losses is a one factor why you cant stop, I was an addicted gambler before but after having debt due to my addiction I have to change that habit, its hard but I have to or else my family will not forgive me.

Exactly it takes a minute for anyone to lose money in gambling, so we should very clearly understand the risks which are involved in gambling.

Greediness is the major factor of addiction to gambling. The main reason for gambling is to gain profit and if you are continuously gaining income and profit from gambling, then even addiction in gambling is good for you.

Only we've got millions of losses if we fully engage into gambling but if our purpose is to enjoy, its not the concern anymore. Only we need not to be fall into addiction cause it will ruin our life. Honestly!
Also be careful when you are having fun with gambling.

You may not notice that you are going to the point of becoming addicted to it, only if you don't care with your standing. Just be aware of what you do although you're only doing it for fun.

Human greedy is the most factor that could lead to addiction in gambling. Greedy of you want to become millionaire within a short period of time which is not possible in most cases rather such people will continue to lose their money in gambling until they go bankrupt.
Thinking of becoming millionaire with gambling is something that a gambler shouldn't think of.

That is exactly right. A lot of cases do not know or at least they don't think they are addicted but think that they are just having fun with gambling and passing a good time.

If they win the illusion becomes even bigger, if they lose they fall in the trap of addiction and a lot of sorrow stories happen to these persons. A gambler should always be with their guard on.

Try to build a new habit that different than the other. If you were often playing gambling, then you can try to go to another place, make a book of your journey, always prevent your mind from playing gambling. Asking the other people to comes with you will be better because she/he will always remind you and try to prevent to go to gambling places. It's all about how we can block the mind to think about gambling all day long and make another activity will be a solution.
Actually it's not a problem when we play gambling, because basically gambling is entertainment. the problem is that some people cannot control themselves, they experience addiction and feel in a bad situation. but for someone who can control their emotions and self control, they will feel at the stage that is comfortable to play gambling.

Addiction means your mind want something in a regular basis to satisfy the dopamine needs.

Your brain has three status of living conscious,subconscious and unconscious.In the stage of conscious your mind knows what you are doing but on other stages you may not unaware of what is happening even if you are living in it.

So if you are having some habit to make you pleasure on short term like gambling,porn or dating and other lot of stuffs will become an addiction when you want that happiness everyday.But these things is not your long term pleasure it just only meant to be short term but your mind turning it into long term by making you keep doing it very often because your subconscious and unconscious make it as a habit already since you are doing it already.

If you want quit addiction from something then you may need to change your life style and concentrate on long term pleasure like building your career or doing workouts and getting success in your business like that.
That is truth.  Our mind need what is good to agree with our spirits but it has never come up in that way because of our dopamine!  The dopamine is looking to satisfied the mind with pleasure and because the mind has been deceived to believe that the pleasure is the best condition it can be it always lead to addiction!  We always want more of the dopamine release through porn, gambling, overfeed, sex and even scamming.

You people are sounding more technical. I'm sorry these are all completely new things to me. Yes, it seems you people are approaching addictions in more psychological way rather than how people are usually discussing like common gamblers. It is interesting but making me unable to contribute to our discussion.

In my view addiction is possible for any gambler when they are intensely gambling and emotionally failing when looking to fulfill his gambling targets.

It's really hard to quit a habit that's already been part of your daily routine so it might take a long time for you to stop that addiction. You have a good point, every gambler wants to win and take a huge profit through betting and thinking. People became unconscious on what they're doing and it slowly turn it into addiction.

Once emotion has entered your way because of failing something, it will push you again to do something in the next time or later, the continuity of actions became a habit thus it will become an addiction.

You can't quit addiction by just simply changing your life style..
We have to know the main source of addiction, and we need to cut that into our life.
In this sense, it's gambling so we simply stop gambling, and that's a hard thing to do when you are addicted.

Yeah is hardly quit gambling and it's not simply to leave and stopped in gambling especially for the people get into addicting without the help of relatives and friend even if they want to change their lifestyle in own way he/she need help by the love ones to moving out from addicted.
No doubt that your friends and relatives can help you to quit gambling, but I think that the most important is your own well and determination, without having strong its difficult to get rid from gambling addiction. I think it is a slow process, it requires a lot of patient and struggle, you need to involve yourself in some other constructive activities, which can also be helpful to quit gambling gradually.

Many of us are being addicted to a thing which they're always used to and it is not easy for them to cut that into their life because they have a lot of experience on it or another reason for making them feel happy and enjoy their life.

Those who are addicted to gambling, actually enjoy the gambling and therefore they do not want to give up gambling and therefore they do not want to give up gambling at any cost.

When you are addicted into something, it is hard for yourself to admit that you are already addicted to it. At first you will be in the state that you can't make your day without doing that. It is not just that it is another reason for you to be happy or to enjoy life, in your mind, you think that what you are doing, you will be able to do that in the long run as long as you can and no one can stop you.

The bad thing about addiction is that those who are addicted, never know this and they feel only the enjoyment which they get from gambling and they forget all the negative aspects of it.
There's always a negative feedback when you don't even know how to control yourself of being addicted to gambling. The enjoyment is always there but once you are already used to it then it's hard for you to quit.

I really do not understand why people blame gambling when they experience a loss in the game. You cannot blame for the loss to gambling itself, when the loss is because of an individual addition, emotions and greediness.

True, whatever we do excessively, it will usually have a negative impact on other things in our lives and no exception with gambling. Moreover, gambling can have a fatal impact especially with wealth if we are addicted. Doing all activities in a balanced manner is the best way.

Most gamblers cannot control themselves, they will be governed by lust whenever they find a victory or when they lose. ~

Gambling addiction is a serious problem, and to understand it better we shouldn't exaggerate things. What you said is simply not true about most gamblers. According to statistics, over 60% of adult population have gambled at one time or another during their lifetime. But only from 0.12% to 2.6%, depending on the country, or around 1% on average, suffer from problem gambling. It wasn't easy for me to write the word "only" in the previous sentence because 1% of the world population is still a very big number, and this is a huge problem we must do something about, but I think exaggeration is as bad as diminishment in the context of solving this problem.

That is really why we need to balance the things that we do in our lives. Some things that we do excessively might have a positive impact but there will come a time that we will be facing a consequence to that. As the band Journey sang it, too much love will kill you, and that is the same as other things especially to gambling, it might not kill you but it will fill you with regret and hardships.

Maybe I'm just lucky but I never had an addiction to gambling myself.  I think quitting drugs is much more difficult because it has a stronger physical effect on your body.  I still think people should be more concerned with themselves and not dictate others on how to live their lives.

It quite easy to say those words "change your lifestyle and focus on something else to quit your addiction. But that is the part they are not able to execute for which they are stuck up with that addiction. But sadly they do not have any other option. I never believe on slow quitting. That thing never works for like most of the people. You either go cold turkey or stick with your addiction.
The best way is to get someone who will help you through quitting through constant monitoring of your life (i know that would be quite annoying but its worth it).

Well said, every point have it's own good intentions regarding to this matter, but it will always be depends from how the person who's really affected will engaged for much better solution, being addicted was a caused by being too much engaged if you will be able to recognized that and you will cope up and change this willingly then you can still save yourself.

Addictions can be fully understood when you are already engaging and having trouble how to quit from it.

Actually different people have different mindset about gambling. Some people consider it as a good way of getting fun and enjoyment, while other consider it a good and quick way of making money, in both condition if you will continue and make it a routine you will become addicted, the different is only that those people who play gambling for fun and enjoyment they only play gambling up to a limit and never consider it as a mean of income, therefore gamboling do not affect them financially too much.

While those people consider gambling as tool of making money they become more greedy and put more and more money in gambling even if they will make good money from there still they want to continue and in the end they lose everything they have.

Both gambling and drugs have difficult to quit because it is not just related to the physical effect but also non-physical in our body. We are difficult to quit by instant, and it depends on how strong our mind to say quit gambling in every time our feeling say that we want to gamble. But with helping from other people who close to us, I am sure that we can quit gambling or even stop to consume drug and it needs a big effort to do that.

Playing gambling without any planning is already like doing a suicide and addiction also comes when you play without thinking and fully control by your emotions. I think if you develop self control in yourself, you can easily understand that you are influenced by the addiction and this can help to stay away from gambling or at least let you make a plan on when to play the gambling.

This is so scientific meaning of addiction and it's so correct. Addiction is coming because of love something so much then you will be in the step that you can't stop it.. As the op said, if anyone addicted and want to quit that he/she need to change her lifestyle, and i know that's not easy, because it cannot happen in just 1 or 2 days.

Yes.Once you're an addict,you are now unaware of the things that you want to happen always.It is behind your control anymore.Addiction can be prevented if a gambler has his own limits in gambling.He should know exactly when to continue and when to stop gambling.And with the family around,addiction can be more prevented or even avoided.

People first come in gambling with their extra money and if they lose, they invest their more money. The addiction is too bad that they tend to take loan and try again their luck in gambling. In few cases, i have seen people losing their house and family only because of this gambling addiction.

Winning money with gambling is the addictive and not losing. As what the OP said 'Addiction means your mind want something in a regular basis to satisfy the dopamine needs.' No one wants to lose in a regular basis, when someone loses in gambling the urge to win is kicking in.

It's true that gambling is so addictive especially when you are on a winning streak but I've never been a fan of it because I always lose.

Be careful when you say you are addicted because you need to have a high control for your emotion. I see many addicted people get in trouble because of their addiction and I don't want to see you in trouble too. It's better you realize that you should reduce the addiction to gambling and reducing to play any games related to gambling. Although you already make limits on the gambling games, it doesn't guarantee you can quit gambling.

There are three rules in gambling:

1- Play enough not to hurt you when you lose.
2- Don't gamble with debt money.
3- Play to gamble to satisfy the feeling of pleasure not to be rich.


If you feel sorry after losing, if you're not getting a lot of excitement while you're gambling, if you're asking for money from others to gamble, if you're saying "your goal is  be rich with gambling', it's time to get psychological support.

Getting addicted is something that is constantly wanted consistently and I have passed that period. Trust it or not, in the past I just invested my energy consistently simply betting, regardless of whether neighborhood betting and web based betting. However, after this time I understood nothing could transform me on the off chance that I kept on betting, until at long last gradually I could change these propensities by filling my time by doing different exercises, for example, being increasingly dynamic in mingling and so on.

They can hardly to escaped from being in addiction cause they don't want it to do, they can't even move on from losses they have.

As much as I know addiction is as bad as one put his/her soul for sale. Determination is the key to addiction because it's not easy for one to quits gambling addiction. Self control may serve as a remedial to gambling addiction if an individual cannot exit the scene.

I totally agree with you that self determination is the key for which one can be able to reduce your addiction to gambling activities.
I thought you also agree with the selling of your soul or something. Lol

Thatís the problem, you think you can just  immediately stop what you are doing with self-determination, it is going to be hard especially if you are alone. I think whatís better is to find someone who would be willing to help you either a professional or a friend, at least for an individual you would know that you have a problem and thatís the first step.

From this title in this thread I think that's the key, yeah self control is important but what if someone is out of control and already an addict? of course the key is to understand about addiction, understand what bad things will happen when you become an addict, it will make you aware

I think he still needs to learn about self-control although it is hard for him because if he is addicted and he wants to quit or reduce his time in the gambling game, restraint is the only way that can help him. Without learning self-control, I don't think that he can quit or reduce gambling and maybe he will become very addicted because there is no control of himself.

Besides that, he will lose too big money in gambling, and I am sure that it does not take too long to see he lost everything because of his addiction. He needs to prevent that if he wants to save his money or quit gambling.

Addiction means your mind want something in a regular basis to satisfy the dopamine needs.

Your brain has three status of living conscious,subconscious and unconscious.In the stage of conscious your mind knows what you are doing but on other stages you may not unaware of what is happening even if you are living in it.

So if you are having some habit to make you pleasure on short term like gambling,porn or dating and other lot of stuffs will become an addiction when you want that happiness everyday.But these things is not your long term pleasure it just only meant to be short term but your mind turning it into long term by making you keep doing it very often because your subconscious and unconscious make it as a habit already since you are doing it already.

If you want quit addiction from something then you may need to change your life style and concentrate on long term pleasure like building your career or doing workouts and getting success in your business like that.

A person is able to control his brain; accordingly, he can control his instincts and direct his actions by will. If a person cannot control himself because of gambling, then he has ceased to be a human being and has become a biorobot and such people need to be treated for dependence.

i know im an addict but i can keep under  control i love gambling but we must know our some limits

Be careful when you say you are addicted because you need to have a high control for your emotion. I see many addicted people get in trouble because of their addiction and I don't want to see you in trouble too. It's better you realize that you should reduce the addiction to gambling and reducing to play any games related to gambling. Although you already make limits on the gambling games, it doesn't guarantee you can quit gambling.
To quit gambling is not necessary but the most important is to have good control over our emotion. I think most of the people do not lose money because that they are addicted to but I think that the main reason is that people do not have control on their emotions.
To me although I have good strategy and limit for my gambling activities, but still some times its become more difficult for me to control my emotions and therefore I continue playing gambling tell I lose everything.

Well controlling our own emotions is really hard to do.We often make mistakes because we always want to satisy ourselves so we tend not to controlled our emotions.But in gambling,it's a necessity because if not,you will be prone into addiction.And addiction might only ruin ourselves of the things we do without our own control.

Seems like a good advice for understanding the self which is for me, I find it really helpful. Too much of a something can do really make bad things to come that is why self-control and proper moderation when it comes to playing gambling as well as the other stuffs that you may think you find it as a source of your happiness. Do not be dependent on those things that are temporary in this world like playing and materialistic pleasure because you are not really just making yourself happy with those that you have, you are depending on those to make you happy that turns out to be your addiction through time. Seeking guidance from other people can somehow make up your mind but still you have to decide. That is why whenever I tend to play into an  online casino (https://to.crwd.cr/smtm) I am currently into, I always keep into mind that playing those variety of games are just for fun because social life and important matters in life like building my career is still the best happiness I could ever had.

I agree with this but before doing it, its better if you consult to a psychiatrist first because he/she can give you tips and advice unto how you can remove your addiction. Change your lifestyle, find companions that are not like you who are gambling. Try to focus on one goal like make a business or get a decent job or travel around the world or do blogging. Anything that is not related to gambling.

That is not necessary, you have your family to help you, you are only getting the service outside if the addiction is really serious.

Most of us are addicted in gambling but it's not serious because we still can get out even on our own, if we got addicted we need to seek help from our friends and family members, they can give more honest advise than a paid professional, I'm not saying they are not effective but I guess people close to you would do better as they know your better.

And you think that is just easy?

Being an addict to something is so hard and you will not know that easily since you are just enjoying yourself to that. When someone is addicted to gambling, they don't know they are an addict to gambling but even though they are addicted, in the real world, they know what they are doing. The problem is that they are sticking too much on the probability of them winning being positive that they will be having a take-home of big amount of money.

You can overcome of being addicted into gambling by changing your daily routine or lifestyle. Try to deal things which is actually meaningful and make yourself become happy to it. It's your own choice to decide and if you still don't want to change what you already used to.

We need to be strong mentally if we want to control the gambling addiction.  Being a human we should undersand that excess of everything can be bad for us and same it happens when it comes to gambling.

If you keep on playing gambling nonstop without any plan, you will only end when you have lost everything. :(

We must have something in our minds to scare us whenever we want to go beyond our limits. It's okay to have a dream of getting good luck through gambling but if we keep chasing it regardless of the risks that can happen, it will be very bad for us.

I think that is the reason why it is banned in many countries around the world. In addition, there could be more ways of making the money and not only gambling if it leads to addiction so yes one should be aware of the gambling addiction.
There should be limitation in everything and gambling is very prone for addiction. If you do actions like this, hurting your familys future, then you must consider yourself as addict. Its hard to stop on that level, but there still a chance for everything if you want to, so better to have someone to guide you.

Its your money and you have full control over it on where to spend it and how to use it. Since you earn the money, you own it and can spend it in any way. It can be spend on gambling or any other investments.

The problem starts when you do not have the money and still you want to play gambling. For this purpose you take loans and/or even try to get money from illegal means. This is where the addictions starts and we should stop our self from such acts.

Never treat a game such as gambling a part of your life like you depend your life on it because it will be another matter to deal with which is addiction. Well as you have said, I got interested into those variety of games you were playing because it seems to be fun and I want to experience the same like you do.

Your brain though works from past experiences. So it doesn't really matter whether what you're doing is deemed good or bad.

Addiction here was described into different types, but totally brought up a person so worst when it comes to profit. However we should consider some factors why those individuals tend to be like that, because judging too quick isn't appropriate. Also as a person, committing such situations which will made us profit less behind the entertainment that we've been through cannot be measured.

Addiction is not only that harms you and makes you unproductive or unprofitable.

Our mind keeps telling us to still playing although we only have small money and it keeps saying that the next roll will be your lucky. If we follow that sound, then we could lose all of the money without any chance to get it back again. That will be dangerous is we are addicted to gambling because we might borrow some money from other people, but we don't think about how we were going to pay back the money.

But still no one long last in addiction, or perhaps the worst things is you've lost everything as what you have just because you keeping betting in gambling. Addiction is not a problem if you know how to control your self(you must), gambling is good and profitable but when it comes too much that is the unnecessary thing that you can do. Too much chasing profit(greedy) will put you down when you are in gambling.

Addiction is really harmful for a person who don't have any good activities or not getting too busy. so what ways for you not to get addictive or not to become greedy?
A lot of things can lead you to addiction like video games, gambling (https://to.crwd.cr/cm), alcohol, cigarette, drugs and etc. To know if a person gets addicted to a certain activity they start to have an unhealthy lifestyle to it, that is why they become greedy. The best way to overcome addiction and not to be greedy is to get busy on important things or to start a healthy style like working out at the gym, playing sports, go hiking, and bond with your family.

When someone don't have enough knowledge about making money will choose gambling as a way but it is the first mistake to let us to addicted.

Addiction means your mind want something in a regular basis to satisfy the dopamine needs.

Your brain has three status of living conscious,subconscious and unconscious.In the stage of conscious your mind knows what you are doing but on other stages you may not unaware of what is happening even if you are living in it.

So if you are having some habit to make you pleasure on short term like gambling,porn or dating and other lot of stuffs will become an addiction when you want that happiness everyday.But these things is not your long term pleasure it just only meant to be short term but your mind turning it into long term by making you keep doing it very often because your subconscious and unconscious make it as a habit already since you are doing it already.

If you want quit addiction from something then you may need to change your life style and concentrate on long term pleasure like building your career or doing workouts and getting success in your business like that.

It is right Addiction mean we want something in daily basis because we need it. But later on when our mind and our heart full of it, then we want relief from it. But if we talk about Money addiction then i don't think that any man will satisfied from it, because money is basic need of every human and i never see anyone is here who don't need or addiction of money.

You're not totally right because what you is only applicable to people who are actually trying to make some money through gambling and it not applicable to those that sees gambling as a way of buying themselves an enjoyment. However, workout and seeking for success in business won't save someone who's addicted if the person is yet to know he's addicted, already to forgive himself and for correction either.

As mentioned the addiction happens with a user when he is in complete focus of earning money. It can be through the practiced way of spending or depending upon luck. There are users who spend time and money into gambling just for enjoyment, and for these people too it is a kind of addiction. As they are financially strong it won't affect the life while the same isn't happening with people focused on earning through gambling and getting into addiction.

If you let addiction eats you it will ends you in nothing so much better to make limits to those addiction. Life is beautiful and many things will can do. And it comes to that addiction in gambling give your self a limitation and be responsible to what ever you do. Because in the end your the only one that can be suffering.

the effective thing to eliminate negative addiction such as pornographic films, gambling, or drugs, is to do many activities or activities such as work or hobbies. it will keep you busy and forget your negative addiction, and when you are at home and remember to be addicted, but your body is tired of these activities. then your negative addiction will slowly disappear.

Because we talk in gambling section, i agree with this. Gambling really can make someone addicted, and it is because a lot of factor. But if people not addicted, gambling will be something fun for a lot of people and there are no one who hate it.

No one will hate it if no one is irresponsible, gambling is risky because we can loss money but it's fun when we win sometimes.
Knowing our chance that we loss most of the time, we should minimize the risk by gambling a certain amount that we can afford to lose.

Everything we need to know about gambling, the way we should manage ourselves can easily be found as we can read advises from people but the crucial stage is on how we handle ourselves, every time we gamble we need to stay discipline because if not, we might ruin our life because of our bad action.

Yes it's true but for those who are really addicted to gambling or other addiction it would be hard for them just to stop it and most of them didn't know that they're addicted into something since like what you've said it became a hobby for them... but I think it's much better to talk with someone and get their idea about on what you're doing and if they think that you're really addicted into something maybe you should go and consult a professional or specialist... a psychiatrist or psychologist (Sorry don't know exactly the difference)

You are right, recently a book I read, said that when detecting certain behaviors, such as getting away from the family, missing work, not giving importance to certain daily activities, it is best to seek help, in this case a psychologist, because if it is not treated in time the consequences are very large and harmful for the player.

Addiction... What is addiction? Addiction is something you want to "use" to achieve certain goals. Addiction can be incentivated by your actions.
In case you need some money (talking about gambling to get profit into money / fiat) you will want to reach a certain profit. If you cant achieve those you will think you MUST have a profitable situation which will trigger an addiction state.

but what happens is that addiction will only worsen your goals or even get out of the plan that you have made, addicts will certainly have higher goals such as reaching wealth, and I think addiction does not help at all in gambling, destroying all plans that you might have make it

It is greed you should be scared of. Addiction is triggered by the greed. Without greed addiction is harmless. I mean you can get addicted to read books and that's a good thing. You can get addicted to math and that's a good thing too. Addiction is a weapon. Making it a good weapon or bad one depends on you.
When it comes to gambling addiction then greed is one of the reason to be in that situation but greed is also form of pleasure which manipulates the minds so being in control is the way to quit gambling.
I agree in that reason, why some people are addicted in gambling because of greediness they want all the time to win and hoping. So they dont know how to control themselves. The thing should learn not to become addicted is control.

In short if you want to get rid of gambling addiction. Divert your attention into other things that you wanted or things that think you can make you happy and busy. Well, it's not easy especially if you really got hooked and always thinking of profit but you can do it without noticing as time pass by.

Addiction can only be triggered if you have something that you like the most and you can't do anything about it. This is because you can't control yourself because it is consuming you. It's either you have to get rid of it by drawing your attention to other things that you didn't do always e.g. exercising, watching movies, reading and so on.

By doing this you can make a clear line between your addiction and the one that you are doing. It may be hard to attain at first but it will be worth it in the long run.

True. But i am sure you can get out of it by being much aware of it whenever you are tempted to go about it. If you are addicted to gambling and you have no money, you will somehow gather a little amount at least to go for it. This is what unable to get out of it. But when you be aware and control over it for few days, this would become normal and you may forget it when you move on.

Its always been worthy to try it out rather than not trying at all.You wont even know if it do work or not because only ourselves
would able to help to make us out of addiction.Even help from other people wont guarantee to be effective if you are not able to help yourself  first.
Distracting yourself from other things is always been ideal and you should really try to get rid of possible gambling related stuffs and so on.

That is the reality of life when you are addicted to gambling. You will miss a lot of important events of your loved ones aside from the fact that you will lose a lot of money. You need to accept what's really going on with your life and change for the better before it's not too late.

Indeed,from my own experience?i missed alot in life,there are lots of good offers from works to families that i denied because of being addicted.theres a chance that i have an offer for a work abroad but i taken for granted instead i choose my vices,from gambling,alcohol and smoking and sometimes womanizing

Yes I agree. Not just gambling but excess of everything be it good or bad is not good for the domestic and family lives. One has to be moderate in terms of dealing with certain affairs that can impact the family lives.

However, I think that government has policies against these things and do not allow it for the citizen openly. This is the reason in China; the individuals do not make loss due to gambling because it is banned. So yeah, it should be understood that addiction is a curse.

I believe that he should learn about controlling his mind so he can prevent the tempting of gambling games. Besides that, if he can control his mind, he will be able to play gambling in anytime without worry to lose much money.

But that is difficult to control the mind, especially in gambling games because we can stay for a long time in the games without realizing that it will be too risky for us to continue playing.

  I strongly second your remark. Excess is not fruitful, be it about some good thing or bad thing. Covering every aspect and element of this world and all the human behaviors and everything, whenever somebody goes for extreme, it hurts. Either to society or to his family or to country or to his mind. Gambling intuited addiction that is cause rather root cause of emerging disappointments in the society.

Those who done this kind of stuff already needs mental assistance, as they can do anything next when they don't have something to sell out just to satisfied their addictions, they can steal from someone or more worse than that, act like robbing someone, addictions ruined a lives of a person who's

Do not get affected because it makes ourselves in a situation that is not good, addiction will only make it difficult for ourselves to be able to avoid it. Think of gambling as an entertainment game and so we can play comfortably. Aim the gambling game as a way to get pleasure, so that we can play calmly and avoid the adverse effects of addiction. Gambling games can have positive effects such as relieving stress, doing good ways so that we can avoid bad things.

Building career and working out aren't always pleasurable to many people.  I doubt they are the real solutions to addiction problem.  They can be stressful sometimes. .. And the stress could encourage more gambling.

Gambling addicts should be encouraged to list what makes them happy,  what they enjoy or find fun aside gambling. 
They could be asked to replace the gambling with the list. The fun experiences can be developed for them assuming they are undergoing a therapy.

Well that's amother approach to it. Working out probably gets mentioned a lot because it's a physical activity. Huffing and puffing your lungs out can take away other thoughts so it is a good alternative but only for those who are interested. There are also a lot of physical activities not limited to working out like going outdoors. For me that's a more entertaining way of keeping yourself from sitting at a gambling table. One thing is for sure, it's easier if the addicted gambler has a solid support group like close friends and family.
