Gambling can be addictive to some people who have a tendency to pick up habits easily like smoking drinking etc. while others do it just for fun. If you feel you have problems with gambling it's best to seek immediate help and ban yourself from accessing your online gambling sites accounts.
Compulsive gambling can be really destructive if no precaution is taken to alleviate the issue immediately.
Yes gambling in the starting will appear as a habit. But after some time it will become an addiction by creating many problems to the gamblers. Due to these problems many gamblers forced to stay always within gambling. Staying away from the gambling is the only way to protect ourselves from gambling addictions.

I don't know why but I always get a feeling to gamble, after then losing my money, I quit for some time and then continue, but I know I will lose my btc Sad

Why is it so addictive?
I think you are addicted because you know that there is a chance that you can win some money and you want to win of course. Most people get addicted after they have experienced a win and they want to relive that moment.

Its always hard to stay away from throwing money after you just won.Just stay true to yourself first of all.If you understand that  you have something bad going one,have a little relaxing nothing is more important than being in a good mood

gambling should play with a cool head, if you experience a loss should think again to regain those losses.
It is true and I agree with your recommendations. But I always have the name lost control when I suffered a major defeat and the end of it I actually lost all my funds. But now I've learned that gambling is indeed very easily conquered with a cool head. and now I'm starting to get back my natural losses.

On the first hand Bitcoin is addicted because people like it to do and that is quite also good because it give you fun and that is very important for your morale.
People also think that you can be rich with gambling, but that is a wrong mindset, they must know that the chance will be higher that you are losing money than earn some money.

I don't know why would gambling addicting... You just lose more money than you win, there is no reason to be addict on it. Play just what you are disposed to lose, for fun and everything will be fine.  Smiley
First problem people do not go for gambling only with the money which are affordable to lose. When they face loss, they start to chase down their losses and keep on gambling. When you are spending more time with gambling it will become definite addiction.
Yes, if you consider gambling only for entertainment then there is no possibilities for worrying for your losses and there is no need to recover it. Hence we can avoid gambling addictions.

I think not only experienced victory just to become addicted. defeat can make you become addicted because usually if you lose in the beginning. you will feel upset with the defeat and attempt to try to get your money back. so you will automatically become addicted after gambling

Gambling gives you fun and that is good for you, but you must also know that there are also some bad things of gambling and that is that you can be poor of gambling if you are doing wrong and that would be not good.
It is so addicting because there are a lot of people that is thinking that they can be rich of it but that is not true.

Well i believe most of the people over the world like to earn money,the pleasure to be at something that may get you to realize that wish,knowing that can loose but the pleasure comes with the opportunity to make a good income this way.
the problem is when they lose they bet with a bigger amount to recover the loss and then when they lose all what they have they will collect more and bet even bigger and the story will continu in that way.
the loss will get bigger and they want to make money so bad and then they will become addicted.
so it is all about losing not the plesure to win.
That all a question about marketing,when you go shop and see some product of 0,99 and another 1,00 which one you will buy?
Gambling show you the potencial income betting xxx ammount,lets say 1 btc,and you can make 20btc with one single bet,you will try to hit that ammount or the 1.05btc knowing that you can loose the 1btc.These market works a lot with prizes,pot,that make us believe being able to get it,the thing is how much do we have to loose to be able to reach those pot,knowing that you may loose all and get nothing,there is no sure what may happen the same way as loteries,being the huge diference that your ods at gambling are bigger.

Gambling is addicted by up numbering factors.

People get addicted because its fun and they enjoy it for a lot of hours after each other.
Another reason is why they get addicted is because of the feeling when they have won they want it again and again.
And the last reason is just because people get greedy these days.

Mostly, yes. It varies per person, and even there are people who find gambling is relaxing to them. If they missed a day, they would act weirdly. Well, most of the time, people got addicted to gambling once they experienced some winnings and thought that it takes a little work to earn some money. So, they ended up being addicted and went broke.

Life sucks.

When people keep on doing the same thing either for entertainment or for any ambition, will become as an addiction. Mostly we people do not differentiate between habit and addiction. Both the same if harm to your routine life.

Gambling is also so addicting because its enjoying and people want to play again and again and cannot stop because of that.
Plus if they will win they think they are unstoppable and they are with playing but with the money this is not the point at all.

Winning at beginning makes you more addictive as you get a feeling that you are winning and you will continue to win and then you loose which results in more gambling to recover the losses.

Gambling is indeed so addictive because of the feeling but I think its also when you are started to get addicted its almost not stoppable anymore.
Controlling yourself from it makes it than hard, when you win money its so difficult to stop because I been there.

Because if you are losing you will end up chasing those losses until you lose everything. When you don't have anymore to bet then it is over for you.

I think it still will not come to an end mate, people will never be satisfied and admitted defeat for which they perform a variety of ways to keep gambling, such as borrowing money on lending, then gambling again
they do not realize that their lives have been damaged by gambling

People also think that you can be rich with gambling, but that is a wrong mindset, they must know that the chance will be higher that you are losing money than earn some money.
they too believe that gambling can make them rich. perhaps because they often see people winning big in gambling.
so they are envious of it and try to get the same victory. but you know people have different luck.
so that they get only defeat
