No..Its not wrong. Gambling is a recreational game. Although, some do get addicted, that would be like an obese man eating butter. He is addicted to butter and eats it all the time. It is bad for him but he has gotten so use to butter and eats it so much he has ran out. Now he's committing crimes just to get butter and stealing from his family. Now.. We should make butter illegal. That would not be fair to everyone else using it responsibly. it depends on the person to person as how much they are involved in gambling.

There's nothing wrong with gambling, it will only become wrong if you were addicted to it. Just gamble moderately

Just like drink moderately right.. lol.

We all know how this turns out. You go to a party and start off with 1 beer, then your friend hands you another or some chick does.

Thats basically similar how gambling loss starts. you lose .1 btc then its 1 btc.

If you have enough willpower to know when to stop, you can gamble moderately. It's not too difficult to have that sort of resolve, but the issue is that most people are greedy and always try for more, not less.

I think gambling is a personal choice, it can be wrong for someone with an addictive personality who will lose much more than they can afford, it can also be a good thing for tbe occasional gambler who loses only what they can afford.

 I know someone who was heavy into the horses and made big money only to lose it all, it has the power to make or break lives.

I hear more bad stories then good lol.

So I personally would recommend anyone who does consider factor those stories seriously, but obviously the person who does gamble give no fuks lol.

Everything in life is for humans. Gambling on its own is as good as any other entertainment method.
You can try it, enjoy it, make it your habit. But with gambling you need to know your limits and problems which can arise when you are gambling over your limits. In other words - don't get addicted and you will be fine.

Yup, just like the california lottery.

Where the dellusional concept of buying 1 ticket, will beat the odds of you winning millions and that hope is engraved for people to buy more until someone does win in that .1% chance.

I think it is safe to say that we are nobody to do moral policing. Drugs are bad too, but some people enhance their lives with it. Everything in life is dangerous like gambling, man, even driving a car is. Doesn't stop billion people on earth to stop driving cars, now does it? You can only move forward and learn from your mistakes, deal with your losses and enjoy your profits. That's life.

It is good while only a small amount of money is involved and you don't spend too much time gambling, at least to the point you neglect important aspects of life.

And while gambling don't put you in conflict with people close to you

Don't agree completely. For the most (and maybe only for a few) gambling is like a disease. If you are touched by it it is contagious. You will see the others play and play again and you will tell every time after the last game that the next will be last. And the last will be only when you would have lose all your money.

It's not wrong. It just have high risk when you are badluck. But it becomes wrong when you gamble your real life income and ignore your family. You can get or loss much in seconds.

It's not wrong as long as you don't spend the last cent in your pocket just to bet.
Some will even bet lunch money and end up nothing. Going home to family with nothing to feed his kids.

i think its not wrong if you can control it or limit yourself to what you are doing as long
as don't get addicted and dont lose what you can afford

Your thought is only one illusion. Sooner or later you will lose control. The classical way is one more game or the next is the last. But the last finish when you lose all the money. I know people which has lost richness in this way.

If you do it for fun with money you can afford to loose, then it's not wrong.

If you do it for a living, that's wrong.

Very soon the fun transcends itself. You will try to find always more and more money "for fun" for gambling and soon you will find yourself in continues need for money to "have only fun".

It is not speaking for living that for everyone is well understood that is a big wrong. Gambling is allowed only for those who have money without end from the floral businesses of their parents. They don't know what to do with their money, with their time and with their life. So go to gambling to lose it.

Its possible to control that is if you only bring the exact money you want to spend or separate the btc address of you bitcoins that you intend to use for gambling

After you will spend all the controlled money or the separated bitcoin addresses dedicated for gambling surprisingly you will ask other money for other purpose and you will find (without to much difficulty) where you will have all the other addresses which were destined for non gambling and will use (lost) all those money for gambling. At the end, the end is sure and clear.

Nothing wrong in gambling. It is the person who play gambling. If the person become addicted in that is wrong already. You cant control your self if you are addicted.

As long as you know when to call it a stop. Most important you know what you are doing. But most of the time it's not the case as emotions tend to take over and that is where you go deeper and deeper. So it is wrong? I don't think so because you are the one to make the call.
