Gambling is fun is not wrong.

Is just like saying playing lottery is wrong.

Gambling is good to do if you can afford losing your money.

what if you can't afford on losing your money then it is bad? well gambling will be bad if it turns out to be addictive for you then I suggest not to play gambling but if you can play in moderation and learn to stop if you learn the odds are not in favor for you then that is good, I think lottery is not wrong if lottery is for charity there are some lottery managing it so then can get money donation for the charity.

If you can't afford to lose, you shouldn't even be thinking about gambling in the first place

Unless you know for sure you're going to make a good profit out of the money you're placing down

Always the same phrase as ever in the time!  Grin
Should exist some kind of mechanism where addicted gamblers simply explodes when loss is eminent.

By definition, there is no such thing as "knowing" that you're going to make a good profit from funds you've set aside for gambling; if there was, casinos would be nonexistent right now. I'd say that it'd be better to rephrase that to saying this: "Unless you want to just have some fun with money you don't particularly care about and can definitely afford to lose, 10 times over."

hello everyone.
i want to know what do you think about gambling bitcoin.. Does Beneficial or more losses?
Share your story here guys!  Grin Grin Grin
There is nothing wrong when you gamble, but in my country (Malaysia) online gambling is illegal.
It will leads to big loss if you do not know what you do when you gamble. Sometimes I win big and there is a time where I lose everything.
Just gamble what you can afford to lose.
better yet, dont even bother gambling and dont lose anything at all. people seem to get into this mindset of "its fine for me to lose this money since i can afford to," and end up throwing it away instead of saving it. something about gambling breeds this toxic and detrimental mindset, and it usually gets the better of people.

It is not wrong if a person is gambling with his own money and not borrowing money from others for his addiction. I have seen people who borrow money through the lending section just to gamble and they end up losing the cash and cheating the person whom they have borrowed from. That's horrible.

It's perception and you cannot tell anybody if their's is wrong and yours is correct .
If people are comfortable to lose some of their money for what they are addicted or happy to do then it's not wrong. Unless they start scamming people for his addiction.

With gambling you will lose more money when you play that much, maybe you are lucky that you can win every game.
Just don't so addicted to it and you will win more. So gambling is not wrong is how you can control yourself.

Yup! your right you can gamble but don't overdo it, be an addictive gambler then you will lose everything not only money but even your relatives, friends, and love ones as well because you can't control your addiction you will do anything just as you can satisfy the urge on gambling.

Gambling is not wrong is you that you can't control your self if you want to stop just delete your account and search help for some one.
Like maybe your family or friends can warn you and help you with your addictions.

Gambling every now and then isn't wrong, just don't make it a daily habbit to lose.

You should be alright if you don't do it everyday

Gambling everyday will turn into losses more than winnings

This is true. It's best not to do this everyday. I can understand why it can be so addicting though. Everyone just keeps on holding on to that hope of winning next round.
There's always a next round so it's hard to stop when you keep having chances until you're out of money.

Gambling becomes wrong when you're getting addicted to it. If you gamble with a certain amount like once every month or so. You should be okay.

Well that is why you need to play poker, because there is no round is just you play it and you can lose or win.
With poker you need to be skilled and with that game you can be calm.

It all comes down to gambling responsibly.  It is only wrong, or a problem when behavior interferes with finances, relationships, and your workplace. 

So if you keep it light hearted, and minimize the amount of $ you gamble with you should be fine.

So that is why people is the fault, because they can't control when they are winning or losing. For some they can control but not all. True that gambling is not wrong, but with it you can lose money. Is just your choice if wou want to play.

Yeah selfcontrol and responsibilty. I think a lot of people lack this which is the reason they are homeless or on their way becoming homeless.
In a way we (the friends & family) try to protect them, but let's face it. In the end they make a inresponsible decision to keep on gambling.

Such a waste and shame...

if you are stupid, then yes it is very wrong. If you can handle the temptation to bet all your life savings for a silly game, then it is good.
In the end you have to think about what you win and what you lose. With gambling you will lose way more then you can win.

I think talking is very easy compare to facing the situation. When one start gambling for them very difficult to control emotions so I think if one just go gamble for fun but not for making money out of it should be OK. But if any one try to become rich from gambling than it is not OK.

That is true. If you gamble once in awhile small amount just for fun than you can enjoy the gambling pleasure but if you try gambling as an earning tool for you then it will give you lot of pain and one can't take that pain. I rarely bet on some sports and I won few time and lost also but still I enjoy these betting.

I think, depending on the pattern of play.

if the ambitious gambler very high without having expertise in the gambling game then obtained is a loss
