Well, gambling can be "okay" (not going to say it's a good thing) if you know how to control yourself. Sometimes, when you lose money while gambling, you tend to bet more money to try to get your loss money back. That's how you end up losing more money.

That is right, everything is going to be okay if you can control yourself and you are betting in moderation.. those addicted one's who finds gambling amusing because by betting big amount really ends up losing their money in the end..

Of course gambling can be okay. But the only thing that you need is luck. And that is very rare in gambling.
Not everyone has luck. And that is the problem. Many people think that they can win in gambling, but they lose always lose more money than they win money.

Gambling is for the most people very wrong and I think that is just normal. People lost a lot of money with gambling and that is very bad.
I hope later that more people will realize that gambling is very bad to do and that they know about themselves how much money they spend on it.
I dont think so. should people know about the inherent risks in gambling before they play. so when they lose. they will accept it gracefully.
true gambling are only one place, for those of you who want to play. please play. but should know the risks

I dont see it as a problem or being wrong as i play games that i must play and i know i will take advantanges,a boost into the game but i know that may bring a return maybe,but usually its just a boost to be at a better place.Soo gambling brings you the opportunity to get profit from the investment ,thats why there are soo many houses and several gamblers having fun as i believe no one believe can win always the prize.

you are addicted. like people get addicted with drugs always see drug as a must. but do you know that drugs addiction can be cured?
and why are you so sure that you will take advantages in gamble?


I were refering taking a boost into a game ,that in the end is something as gambling since you dont know if you can recover the investment made,anyway there is nothing wrong with gambling as long as it doesnt make you spend all your salary at it,if you have lets say 50dollars left all months you can do what you wanna with them.

Why would it be wrong if it feels so right?
If this is a serious comment, then the argument makes no sense and has huge holes in its foundation.

"Why would it be wrong if it feels so right?"

Well, there are many things that people are rewarded for doing, but are ethically/morally unsound. At least on an emotional and empathetical level, the majority of people would not be very happy to see the slaughter of thousands of children (I realize I'm using appeal to emotion, but bear with me) but there could be someone who finds that "right". Incest is wrong (in most people's eyes) but it could be "right" for those who are committing it. Why else would they do it?

It's not intrinsically right if it feels right.


[But in my opinion, I have no problems with gambling]

Gambling is only wrong if you accept that other people's commands make it wrong. Everyone involved in a bet are so completely voluntarily and because choose to do so.

Sounds like a line from a song  Grin

I have been gambling I guess since I was 8. Haha! Mahjongg to be specific. I never believed that Gambling is wrong. Gambling Addiction is a different story to the point of selling everything you have. I mean, everything that you do excessively is bad. Most of the time. Gambling is recreation not a hobby and not a source of living (some does though). Gambling is something that you do for fun, thus winning is a big side benefit. Gambling is never wrong as long as you know when to stop. Smiley

But some people are in there voluntarily, but it's because they can't stop; they are addicted! Then, that is wrong, even if the people who are playing are in there "voluntarily."

Gambling is wrong because it's risky way and earning is really not guaranteed but in the other hand you can lose all your hard earned coins in some seconds , in addition you could be addicted gambler and that's really worthless
I think gambling for a means to earn is a bad idea, it should be avoided at all cost. once one gets addicted to gambling it's real hard to not to gamble.

Why you can't make gambling as your earning, although you dont need to make it your active income but for passive income is really great idea because the payout is really good. I know there is high risk too but the payout already cover the risk so if you can overcome the risk, there is no problem about gambling just to earn
Because it's risky.. if one wins a little then try for more if one loses then we try to recover and eventually losing all the money get it? you wouldn't understand unless you lose significant amount, the risk is too much.

The payout is normally really good to entice gamblers in. But once in, it is hard to stop and you become addicted. Once addicted you cannot control the money you put in it and you may lose a lot. That is how gambling is bad. It makes people lose control of their money. They continue betting even in their losing streak. Though some people can control it, but there are only a few of them. Majority of us cannot control it.

It depends on how you look at it. Some people are rich because they gambling and they have won a lot of money so that is good.
But some people lose also a lot of money with gambling and that is not good. I hope that more people will realize that gambling is very bad.

Well, gambling can be "okay" (not going to say it's a good thing) if you know how to control yourself. Sometimes, when you lose money while gambling, you tend to bet more money to try to get your loss money back. That's how you end up losing more money.

That is right, everything is going to be okay if you can control yourself and you are betting in moderation.. those addicted one's who finds gambling amusing because by betting big amount really ends up losing their money in the end..

I think gambling is not just about control of yourself. I know the importance of self-control. so you are not too lose too big or something. in addition to the control you also have to accept all of the possibilities and risks. after know and understand more about it all, gambling is not a fault.

so you can control yourself in gambling and play it wisely. it's clearer now. but there is still an unclear thing, it's the boost you talked about, that i have no idea what it is.

It depends on how you look at it. Some people are rich because they won some prize money and they dont see gambling wrong.
But other people see gambling very wrong because they lost a lot of money from it and that is not good.

Gambling itself is not wrong but the addiction you can get from is very wrong, the point is also some people are very fast addicted to something so that is another reason why it wrong for such people.
In my eyes gambling itself is not wrong but even enjoying if you ask me but you have to control yourself.
