I have read some articles and watched people who have spent years in prison for stealing hundreds of thousand from their employer. Money is merely the mechanism that allows you partake in your addiction that you will commit a crime like lying, cheating, stealing.  Gamblers are the biggest liars known to mankind. So do you think gambling is good or it is wrong?

totally wrong on my perspective why ? because i already lost about 2 bitcoin on gambling but i dont know why i just cant stop to touch such thing i always ended up losing no matter how sure i am , now i try hard to stop this and hopefully all goes well and i will get my moola back

It's your fault that you lost 2 bitcoins and you should ask yourself why did you gamble in the first place? Because you will not lose those bitcoins if you didn't gamble at all. Gambling isn't wrong and in your side, you are the one who did wrong. As you know you can't stop touching your bitcoins, why you didn't do something about it?

Gambling should be illegal. It's something that doesn't help anyone, it doesn't help society and even if you argue that it creates jobs, it also destroys lives so in the end is still bad. A lot of casinos also are used to laundry money or other illegal activities. If gambling was really fun, people would gamble with no money involved.

what gambling are you played?various game or just one game like dice or roullete?
its a huge lost,2 bitcoin is enough to make people hate and feel suck to play gambling again,i never lost total or 2 bitcoin in one play,its make sense if ou think that gambling is wrong based on your experience.
I think he played and lost in casino games means dice or roulette games. Becasue these games are tempting games if we have balance in our account, we will not stop until it gets empty. I think the same thing to happen this guy that is why he lost 2 bitcoins in gambling. Maybe he totally out of control when he is playing gambling after losing 1 BTC also he not stops his play and lost 1 more coin. If I am in this situation seriously, i will never come back to gambling again.

It is illegal in some country but you can still access it. I dont think just because it doesnt help anyone than it should be illegal because we have choice, we have choice to play or not depending on us. If you think that it doesnt help you then dont play but for me it is helping me to relieve my stress and I enjoy it

It seems to me that gambling should only be in a certain place at a certain time. I really like only America did, I made Las Vegas as the center of the gambling world.

Gambling is the root of it but we are all grown up and we know whats good and whats right. And they got the appropriate penalty, if they didnt stole money they wont be in jail. They are not just responsible gamblers.

I agree all the decision here is from TrissMerigold.  He cannot make a decision and blame gambling for it.  Gambling is just there, it is up to us if we will play and gamble without thinking the future or keep ourselves unchecked and lose a lot of money.  If we made a wrong decision, do not blame other people or other things, instead let us  be a man and accept that it is our fault of having a weak self discipline.

That's like saying cocaine should be legal because you have a choice, to use it or not, or that anyone can buy any weapon anywhere because you have a choice, to kill someone or not. The world doesn't work like that and some people will not be able to abstain themselves from doing it that's why it should be illegal but as usual, the government doesn't care at all.

hello everyone.

Share your story here guys!  Grin Grin Grin
For me gambling isn't bad at all. Gambling could help us to entertain ourselves however we should know our limitations. Furthermore, you should only play your money that you could afford to lose. In the other hand, in some country gambling is a not accepted and they think it is a sin, we ought to understand them because we have own beliefs.

It is, in my opinion, people who play and gamble that seem greedy and materialistic and the person get easily angry, that's someone who shouldn't play. Knowing that gambling could lead you to destruction in the bank and probably with your relationship with your loved ones. That's just epic, you should know your limits.

Not everyone is greedy, Im not greedy when I gamble because it is only for fun however it is different for some people that want profit so it depends on people wether it is right or wrong. I think it is wrong to gamble for profit but some people think that it is the right thing to do because it could get them profit faster than anything else

Not everyone greedy but every person has greedy nature. Some people will control their greediness like you and someone not, this kind people will become an addicted gambler. Gambling is not good to play for profit. We use this gambling only to get entertainment. Other than this if we use for anything it is wrong.

If one can control their greed one can become better in getting over the gambling addiction. But it is true that many players play just for fun and not for profits. There are many players who wait for tips in the chat-room and then beg for tips in online casinos. They might try to multiply that amount if they can as well. So if it a big win they have actually made a profit out of a free tip. However it is rare and in most cases time wastage is more than any worthy return.

You are correct mate that if those wasted time begging for tips in chatrooms, they do some work online, they can earn some good money that they can share to their loved ones, family, friends, and buy things that they want and need.
Most people would want to have profit, I think everyone does it's just the reactions or the responding of a person is that differs. When you look at it, it's people that you think who are not going to be addicted is the people who would be. It's just basic, people would want to be responsible for their actions.

We should be held responsible in al of our actions and decisions in life - no blaming games because we are the one in control of our lives. If we gamble, we are responsible for its outcome whether we win or lose. That is the main reason why we should only play for fun and entertainment because we will most likely lose than win because the odds are against us.

Thats one of the reasons why there are a lot of conflicts and misunderstandings, instead of playing for fun they began pointing fingers when things get tough. Even if its is a gambling game we must know the limitations of our actions and the relationship to other players. We must be professional in some way, bear defeat with great heart.




If you are addicted to gambling then its surely wrong but if you are gambling for fun and entertainment with a small amount of money then I don't think there is anything wrong in it but you should know your limits and also you should be aware when to stop.

Some simple advice, dont gamble if you only want to do it for fun. You wont really get anything from it. The only pleasure that you are going to get is when you win the game. Now tell me how are you going to be having fun from the game when you keep on losing? you wont have any fun , in fact you are going to stress yourself

That's what I've been thinking about people who say they're gambling just for fun. Our way to have fun from gambling is to win and earn a profit. Those who always say that gambling for profit is wrong and they defend nonsense.

If you widen your understanding you will see that not all gamblers are playing for profit.  There are gamblers that are looking to socialize, relieve their stress by having fun.  Thus gambling to have fun.  Whether they will lose or win is nothing to them since they have accepted that the fund they will use will eventually spent just like when they are watching movies or going out with friends.

Thats very professinal. Imagine some 60 years old man with enough assets and just want to enjoy life to the fullest, risk some, play some, leaening new things and exploring places and socializing with people. Thats some professional gambler wheb you have that purpose.
We can have fun with our own way and betting some woth friends aint a bad idea.

If anybody knows his limit in gambling while he play on online sites just for fun more likely entertainment purpose than there is nothing wrong with to do this job. Mostly it depend on our behavior how serious we take this way to make money for us. I also think we can control on our greed than gambling is a good way to have fun.

Yes gambling is not wrong. It will be wrong when we already bypass our limits or we already dont want to follow our self limits. For example we continues to gamble even we dont have enough money yet. Gambling teaches us good things too. Not only it teaches us on how to win the game but instead it teaches us lessons in life.

Exactly once. Indeed, gambling is a place that has a lot of risks, because in it we should also fight to remain in the existing system to beat. Strategy and also self control is absolutely needed in gambling, if you can't control it all with good then it certainly you have many disadvantages. You need to know, that if you use gambling without an experience that is true, then everything will be going very bad and detrimental

There is nothing wrong with gambling for as long as we are responsible enough. It's a sort of entertainment to relieve stress. Crypto gambling is better as it is provable fair and house edge are too low.

As I said, that argument is flawed. It's like saying, nothing wrong with cocaine or guns as long as we are responsible enough. Problem is that people are not responsible enough therefore the government should step in just like it steps in on drugs. However they get money from this so they don't really care.

I think government is somewhat to blame if their is a proliferation of gambling. Specially illegal ones and you can't blame people getting into them. The problem is its hard to stop gambling because as you have said, their is money in their that the government benefited. its up to very individual casual or even addicted once to really control themselves and not ruin their lives in the long run. But sadly, its difficult to really stay away from gambling. It is already in every society in the world.

Problem is that people are not responsible enough therefore the government should step in just like it steps in on drugs. However they get money from this so they don't really care.

I think government is somewhat to blame if their is a proliferation of gambling. Specially illegal ones and you can't blame people getting into them. The problem is its hard to stop gambling because as you have said, their is money in their that the government benefited. its up to very individual casual or even addicted once to really control themselves and not ruin their lives in the long run. But sadly, its difficult to really stay away from gambling. It is already in every society in the world.

You shouldn't be blaming the govenment about that proliferation of gambling because before that gambling establsihments been structured and registered, they were imposed with a certaim rules and regulations upon doing the operations. Like with casino houses in my country they are paying bigger taxes for the government and submitting themselves to the legal matters of the law. I think the main point to be blame here is the gamblers itself doing it in a wrong way and can't even manage with their addiction; wasting money until dawn. Although it's difficult to stay away but we have free will to do it so, and if I were the government I will be implementing a background checking of a person if his/her family is not affected by gambling activities done by their family member whose addicted with gambling which has caused wrong decisions on money betting.

Governments, they can be blamed yes, but we can't except the fact that people are still gambling even if the government are forbidding them to gamble.

Government will do anything to make casinos and gambling sites pay them good taxes because there are a lot of costumers everyday in a casino, casino on the other hand, will be putting many promos and prizes so they can attract costumers and get back their taxes as their income. And gamblers, being attracted to gambling will not stop as long as they are not emptying their pockets and getting back their losses. So they are all to blame.
