Gambling is addictive because it seems shortest and quickest way to make lot of money.If this happens what happens almost to everyone at start you win few bets this encourages you to keep trying your luck.It is not only gambling but everything what you do for a longer period let you get addicted to that in the end.

And because this is about money. People easily got addicted to it. Like some lottery winners, I really sure, they will keep play lottery to "try" their luck again.

Is that addicted? The answer is yes.
There are no body can stop while they win. Stop in here is not stand for short period. But stop forever.
Greedy is one of factors why people keep playing gambling. Although they are lose.

we the greedy part which is the most addictive , you can see people winning on dice a targeted amount but they don't withdraw the profit they keep betting cause they feel that they can make more
and sometimes there is the fun part like poker were players have a great time just by playing the game no matter if they are having a winning or a losing session

First we play gambling for just time pass and for enjoyment. Then we see other people win in gambling and feeling very happy, so at that moment we feel greediness, and starts playing gambling with money etc, slowly slowly the gambling becomes addicted. After that once we get addicted with gambling we can't able to leave the activity of gambling.

When you start winning, you would have the mentality of trying another one as you probably think you would win for another game and profit. The more you bet, the more likely you're going to lose. It's hardly possible for anyone to be satisfied with their winnings. It's difficult to stop without self control. The anticipation and suspense is too addicting.

If the first and the second time you gamble had made you won a lot of money, this can be somehow addicting and later you will realize you're into it already. Sometimes you'd loan money just to gamble and this is becaue its somehow addicting.

I don't think gambling is addictive itself, but the money and greed. When someone loses, he does not come back too quickly, but when someone win can not stop thinking about it and this pull him to further play.

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 it might be the emission of happiness hormons like serotonin when you are winning.
This kind of feeling is it that many people wnat to have as often as possible. For some it seems to be better than having sex.
And when you lose you try to force to get that feeling again.
Very dangerous! Set yourself a limit. When that is reached stop gambling!Discipline is what you need!

It is is correct. Most people go to gambling by thinking they can make some quick bucks without much effort and also same time they can have a fun. But in reality gambling is not for making money but it is just for fun so who ever goes gambling for making money, if they lose money initially or make profit then game starts. If lose then they will go to gambling again to earn back their loses or if they win their mind thinks that it is very easy way to make more money so again they go back for gambling. This way slowly people will addict to gambling.

That strong urge to gamble that you often feel is one of two things:

 - You want to recoup your losses, as meager or as ass-whoppingly large they are.
 - You won last time, and it felt so good to make profit. Why not make that profit again? It wasn't that hard!

Well, both of these mindsets are quite financially "fatal". They urge you to gamble more, no matter what streak you're on. Good, bad, it doesn't matter. Greed is a natural instinct with all of us. Why not make that extra dollar? And even worse, with the house edge of most casinos, you're bound to lose, unless you're on a dice site and martingale your way around with a 1 satoshi base bet and a 10 bitcoin bankroll Grin

I used to have a gambling addiction too, so I set up a proxy on my router and got my friend to take care of the login details for the proxy. I personally know alot of ways to get around it, but I have controlled myself.

The ability to get rich quick!

Actually the correct answer is more easy to lose money in gambling then making money but most people thinks in your way and go to gambling but surely most of them will lose money initially without knowing itself and later on they will go back to gambling to get back their lost money but at the end they will lose all money in gambling. People will addict to these games mostly to get back their already lost money

Quoted. This is very true.
Some people not really got addicted with gambling. They just keep playing because they have money (to get the money they lost before).
As long as they keep having money, they will try their "luck" again. So it is very "naive" thing in all gambler.

We just say: we playing for fun.
Which actually we say: "we playing to get some money, if we lose, we can get it back." and the losing streak start.

The answer is simple: because people are delusional and think the money on the table will soon be in their pockets.
