If you know when to stop while gambling, i see nothing wrong about it...

It is not wrong to gamble but usually stupid. Fun and stupid mostly.

Yes that is correct if any one know when to stop the gambling then that it best but the worst part in gambling is after you start then gambling will not allow you to stop until you lose ever thing at least you have in your hand. This is the issue most gamblers are facing. Mostly every one will start gambling as a fun but slowly start betting and finally lose the money.

that will happen if gambler win a lot in the past and will try and try again hoping they will win again like before
and definately will lose everything.. but vice versa there are smart better that know when to stop and will be contented in what he got..
maybe will back again but will not bet everything he got

The first time I went with my father to the horsing races, he told me that my mind set should be of having a good time. That day we lose each penny we decided to spent betting, but had a helluva of day.
So then why will bet? You can have a good time without betting. You should just gamble to make money and not guide your mind through emotions.

Everyone has their own mind set up when gambling its just so go too far and have no control.  If people cant control themselves they should probably leave it alone.

I know that we could have a good time without the betting. We had it other times under different circumstances. As I said, that day we lost only the money we decided in advance it was for betting. Nothing else. So, if I'm not a compulsive gambler nowadays, I think it's because what I learnt that day.

We can say gambling is wrong if we lost money on gambling, and if we earn money from gambling, I think you guys would never say that, haha, so every statement about gambling is based on the results, sometimes we are down some money but sometimes we are up, just cash out when you are up, that must be correct.  Grin

what i do nowadays is that i put aside an amount that i can afford to lose (whatever that amount is) then i gamble with that much bitcoin an not a satoshi more.
in this case even if i lose, i don't care because i was prepared for it. and also the winning would be sweater too.

What you said is just like reading a story in a book but in reality most of the time all gamblers will come back for gambling to get back what ever they lost. Even though they made a profits earlier but if they lose some recently then they want to take that back so they will try and try until lose all of them.

But most people are never satisfied from what they got, although if you win big amount of money on the next day or may next week you will try it again to win that much, thats why if you can control it not to play it again you wont lose that much. But gambling is too addicted, once you start its hard for you to let go  Grin

yeah we need to try gambling ourselves before make any statement if gambling is wrong or not. There are many people who stating gambling is great or wrong, but I'm sure most of them don't do gambling yet.

it doesn't matter if you win once or twice, you should always check your results in the long term. for example check your total invested against total profit in a month or 30-40 days period to see how much you have lost and how much you have earned through your total gambling.
then you can easily decide whether or not gambling is wrong for you.

Pretty much words to live by.  Take things in modest, don't overdo things and you won't have a problem.  Pretty much anything you do, Tan, Eat, Play Games, Work, Exercise, Sleep done in large amounts is so terrible for your body!

It is always best to only gamble for recreational purposes. You always have to think of another reason besides scoring a lot of money when you go to the casino. Some people go as a social activity with friends. Others go every week solely for entertainment purposes. In Canada you can always ban yourself from the casino and once the time is over you can start gambling again.

Signatures? How about learning a skill... I don't care either way. Everybody has to make a living somehow.

If anyone has experienced 1st hand, everyone who hasnt should learn from those peoples mistakes.

Its always tempting to try for yourself, but the reality of results will be the same. Save the time, energy, and hard earned money to do better forms of risk then casino games.

Lost today BTC 0.10. It isn't that bad. I had some fun and it was money I could loose. So gambling isn't bad.
gambling is not bad until you dont start loosing money you need for a living gambling just for fun with small amounts is ok its like playing any other games
It is always best to only gamble for recreational purposes. You always have to think of another reason besides scoring a lot of money when you go to the casino. Some people go as a social activity with friends. Others go every week solely for entertainment purposes. In Canada you can always ban yourself from the casino and once the time is over you can start gambling again.

And there lies the problem.. usually the experience turns into a form of habit.

And it just gets ugly from that point out, people lose control and sometimes sell their house or do crazy stuff.
