Gambling is the biggest mistake I made
That's good that you realize your mistake. And now is the time to correct your mistakes. Stay away from gambling and tell
others that gambling is addicting and it's just a waste of money if they will continue doing it.

Get away from gambling as soon as possible this will get worst if you involve yourself from it. Yes, gambling is waste of money that will never retrieve !

There is a thrill to winning in gambling because you gain something and sometimes didn't have to put a lot of effort into it.  Also when you lose, there can be a feeling of desperation to try to get it back.  I've felt both of those in gambling and gaming for money.

Its person dependant, some people can gamble a little and be done with it, some people get fixated.  Just like drinking i think, if you have other life problems you forget them very easy with gambling/drinking or things like that.  So you get reinforcement from brain thinking its a good idea to do all the time when it is not.

there are a lot of emotion that can be involve in gambling with different kinds of people who's trying to get his chance in winning a bet in gambling you can surely see different kinds of personalities and I am sure they had different reactions towards gambling.

Gambling is a problem only if you are suffering from your excessive hazard problems, you lose money you can't afford to lose and your personal interactions with family and friends is weakening.
But aren't almost everyone addicted to technology? Can you live without your smartphone, laptop, PC, internet, television etc? Maybe gambling isn't the worst problem?

I know for me im addicted to the internet but its mostly a healthy problem.  The only bad part is the sitting and the screen time.  Everything good is online though nothing i want to do about this. I do think people who get addicted to gambling should go see a therapist asap since there is probably a bigger issue.  If not then its a genetic disposition and you just have to accept it, no big deal Smiley

Gambling addiction is hard to treat because their is no physical medicine to cure such, first things first, one must accept that he is addicted to gambling, he must be willing to seek advises from no other than friends and families and must have a open mind to consider all the recommendations.

If he would want to really change but a lot of addicted to gambling can't help themselves from stop in their addiction but if they have a loving family and friends that really want him or her to stop in the addiction I think he can really stop in his addiction.

The most addictive part of gambling is when you are only winning and at your most this would make you very happy but once the losses come out you will cry out but that's what gambling is all about its a game of chance and make it at your risk when you feel you are lucky then go for it but how long you will feel that does matter the outcome.

Gambling is the biggest mistake I made
when you realize that follow gambling is the biggest mistake? you still have the opportunity to correct these errors
That's most of the gamblers mistakes here, especially those who have average and even poor financial status, we tend to be addicted to gambler because we consider it as an opportunity to earn huge amount of money but in reality we always go broke, in effect we chase our bets because we want to win back our loses without knowing that we are already near in the hole of total bankruptcy.
for those who are still trying to get back the money that has been lost on gambling, I hope you can get back the lost. although the chances are very small.

I think that the main reason is the illusion of being able to become rich in a short time and without efforts! When you win a small amount, you want more and more.. At the end is always the same, you will lose every profit you made and probably more.

Yup! because in gambling there are a only few individuals that can do it because of their luck and not all are that crazy lucky, and ending up addicted to gambling will cause you a lot of pain and the grieve that your family feel towards you because of your state of addiction can not the control anymore!
It lots of pains if you are addicted at gambling because you can lose everything what you had.. so if you really want to stay away or treat your self from being addicted better to go in psychiatrist first and ask them if how to recover your self from addiction or how to threat it..
And i think they can give more solution for addictions..
Yes, Psychiatrist will have a better solution for that ,they will suggest you some other activities and also they will give you some medicines with which you will feel the peace of mind without going to any gambling game.

The main reason is the potential outcome. Getting a lot of money for very less effort/time spent. But the more you lose the bigger your understanding will rise.
People will have to feel the hard way.

Indeed they have to feel it on the hard way and I think they are also getting addicted because they can win money in a relative short time without doing too much, compared with other gaining money methods.

That's already given, gamblers are lazy, they want to earn instant money but in reality that is almost impossible. When we are gambling the advantage is not on us because the house set the rules and we are just following theirs, if the house feels they are losing they will adjust it in favor of them. You need to be smart to win actually, and that make the gamblers addicted because until now they are experimenting methods on how to win. Grin

Because we are so greedy and we want to make money in simpler ways without hardwork. even though we know wel loose btc in gambling we do it again and again. may be we must exchange our btc to fiat money or store in in cold storage if we think we need a break and we dont have control on gambling.

Not that some gamblers are greedy, I think it's more like they have been attached to gambling because it gives them extraordinary feeling when they win even if they know that it was not yet in their pocket to consider as profit. I think that's one thing that keeps them trying over and over again..

Gambling will be only addicting to people that cant control themselves and that is because they want to earn some money with it but that is actually almost impossible.
So they are losing money and that is bad, to win money in gambling you need to be really luck and that happens not that often.

This is a near perfect description of why gambling can be addictive.
The human race is greedy big time and the thought that you could win more money than you have is irresistible to some and especially the greedy ones.

All sites should have a nominated cashout amount that each player can select and once/if reached it get automatically withdraw to your nominated account., only an option not mandatory.
That should also have max deposit that players setup before play. Its easier to set a limit before you start playing.

Greed is not always good, anything excessive is bad for us, especially in gambling if you gamble excessively you will be affected, you will be addicted with it and it will be hard to get out of addictions. Most of the gamblers here learned their lesson in the hard way. I hope it will not happen to anyone anymore that you will lose your family because of gambling.
