I suggest you to just store most of your bitcoin in cold storage and print out the private key in paper and store it safe. This will make you unable to send bitcoin easily. I was also addicted to gambling before, and also delete bookmarks of gambling sites and clear the cache. Cool

There is a thread in this forum called "How to stay away from Gambling".You need to go through that thread because people will most likely suggest the same thing here.Why you even gamble when you have a confidence you will lose at the end of the day?

cause everyone is greedy, they wanna make easy money with fun, so people prefer making money in this way, but most people failed because casinos have house edges, we lose in the long run, so we should stop when we earn, although it is difficult for us

How do I create a cold storage? Also u say it is not easy to send, but if I later want to exchange my btc to another currency or bank, how will I be able to do that?

People think that it's easy to make money without working from gambling, that's the thing which makes gambling so addictive "easiness". if you are unable to control yourself while you have btc sell them and withdraw the money in your bank account.

Denial keeps problem gambling going. If friends and family are worried, listen to them carefully. Take a hard look at how gambling is affecting your life. It’s not a sign of weakness to ask for help. Many older gamblers are reluctant to reach out to their adult children if they've gambled away their inheritance. But it's never too late to make changes for the better.

I suppose one of the main reasons is the illusion of getting rich quick and when you do win you think next time if I put in a little bit more then you will win more.  It is an addiction that is hard to kick for sure.

Risk and Reward are both things that get you exited and get your adrenaline going. They stop logical thinking and you need to stay on top of that. I sometimes consider betting a small amount on a gambling site but I can make myself stay away from it by saying

"Even if I win this 1 BTC bet, I will still have lost 0.01 BTC because that's how much the expected loss is. I might as well have flushed 0.01 BTC down the toilet."

To me gambling wins aren't even real money, 99% of people lose them again very quickly anyways. No matter whether you win or lose, the real amount you lost is the expected loss and in the long run your loss will always be the same as your expected loss.

The simple reason must be the human nature. All human usually temp to all attractive things. The most entertaining thing which also provide the promise of getting rich in quick period must attract any common man which may end in addiction too.

Well said. Gambling becomes addiction just due to the fact that of it's easy money making method. We are looking for money making idea when it comes with the flavor of easy task then many people do not want to leave off it. That is the reason they are sticking with gambling and getting addiction to it.

Yes sticking with gambling even in the events of losses, makes people getting addicted. If people ignore gambling on the events of losses then the chances for getting addiction must be very much lesser. They believe in the gambling to make big fortune from it and getting addicted to it.

Damn you were right. This kind of thread actually not necessary posted in new thread. You just need to talk to yourself in front of a mirror "why gambling is so addicted?" Because easy money? Because easy way to make money? Or burn it all? And you will found the answer when you think over and over again that gambling actually is a bad thing that we have to stay away from , when you started get addicted.

The fact is he is not even winning at the end of the day.The entire human lure gimmick would make sense if he actually wins something that makes him wannn earn more.But according to the post he always ends up losing his money which is not a good said.I'm afraid he is going anywhere with all those "in human nature comments''.

I will say in these words when someone keep winning or loosing both provoke the player to keep playing to win more if he is winning or to recover as next hand can be winning hand and he will not only recover his losses but also will make some decent amount.this practice of playing repeatedly makes person addicted to gambling.
