Yes! This is a vicious cycle.Easy comes easy goes.That's why always choose to work hard and earn the money ,its totally worth it and you will respect it .Gambling can be easily done to as an alternative even if you're addicted and do it for fun its alright until you're spending very less for what you earn but putting your entire bank roll online will make you broke in no time.

Both of you are totaly right. Gambling is something that can make u rich fast or ruin u even faster. Choice is ours, there is a reason why everywhere is writen gamble with responsability, so people dont throw your money like that, spent just what u can afford. Also when you make something run away as fast as you can or you will end up with loosing everything you have.

gambling is only addictive to greedy people who want to keep on winning. it is wise to know when to quit in case you find yourself losing or even winning. the only problem is that no one thinks they have enough. better investing your BTC in another form if you just feel like multiplying it because betting will see you lose it. thanks

Some people thinks doing gamble make their adrenaline pushed and its make them happy.
So it is not about win or lost only there is something funny when you wait the result.
And it is addicting to fun gamble.
that's mostly true only for addicts though, most normal people will always try to play for money. an addict on the other hand, doesnt care if they win or lose, they just chase their gambling fix and nothing more. to them, the cost of losing is the just the cost of getting their fix, nothing more. and if they win, just just get another one is all.

Well, wouldn't say its that addicting. People tend to do it when they are bored/depressed/angry , while knowing they will loose, not gambling, just giving away money. I'd say consentrate on other things during the day and you won't find a minute to gamble

I saw my neighbour want to chase his loss, he scream so I can hear his voice ( I think he was angry to his wife )
And the horrible part is he commit to suicide by hanging himself with rope  Lips sealed on tomorrrow

So if we can't afford to lose, better stay away from gambling !

What did I just read :O. This is one of the problem about gambling.
That is why I just gamble for fun and if I am lucky that I win money. So that I don't get addicted.

But that don't happend every time so yeah. But being addicted is just a human think is what you said Cheesy every one is addicted about something so yeah.

There are many addicting things in this world, gambling is one of them because you can easily win sometimes, but when you loose you feel like you have to keep playing to recover what you have lost, and after that you feel that you want more that what you had at the start point, and then you loose again, its hard to stop but I would recommend you to do other things, go out with your friends, go to the cinema, practice sports, study, read books, watch movies, play videogames (not too much hours)...

For me personally, gambling is fun as long as I actually can't lose any money/crypto. So I occasionally gamble with faucets with the aim to multiply the given faucet enough to make it transferable. Example: minutes ago I managed to gamble from an initial 200 satoshi to over 22000 (110x) while the 'transfer-barrier' was 10000 sats, or 0,001 BTC. To get from 22000 to 100000 sats you 'only' need to multiply 5 times more, but then my screen turned eerily red and amount plunged to 0.

In a nutshell: it was an entertaining attempt to reach the glorious amount of 0,001, while the worst-case scenario is only losing a faucet (and 10 minutes of my life)  Wink

Waw nice! I am gambling with faucets too. The price is so little that I don't realle care if I lose.

But that is nice that you won 0,001 BTC = 0.6452 USD well that is something.

It is not that easy. I know guys who are addicted to gambling.
A friend of mine just lost 3 monthly rents in one evening. This was money he could not afford to lose. And he knew it.
He had lost several thousands but still can not find his inner emergency brake.
That dude is in serious trouble!

Yeah it is some kind of psychology. People think they will win this time, or that time. Before they know the are out of money.

Lost your house, wife and kids, and try to survive on the streets, while winter is coming..

An area of pleasure is active when you win. The same area of sex and alcohol. The problem is not in gambling but in people spending all their money in it. Bankruptcy can also happen with alcohol or any other addiction.

the main reason for gambling is to earn easy money very fast, and in the start of the gambling you will win, but after some time the time changes and you start to lose then starts your addiction and you start to get information, details and searches . like this you start to become addicted to gambling. i am also addicted to it but i started to bet on sports betting and now i am getting less addictive because which sports i bet if that is live then only i bet.

Simple: If you win, you think you will keep winning then you continue. If you lose, you want to recover your lost money then you continue Grin.

If you totally lack self-control, you better not try gambling.

That is not the correct answer. These games are designed such a way to attract most of the people play longer and also people are very greedy so either they win or lose still they will play for longer either to make more profits or for recovering their loses from these games.
