Winning make you addicted to gambling not the gambling itself when you win and double your money you find it hell of a easy way to earn quick cash and then you try to do it again and again so it become your habit and your habit is your addiction !!
I agree with that. But it's not only winning that males you addicted to gambling. It's both winning and losing. Losing your money makes you eager to bet more, play more, having the chance that you can survive and get back your losses. It's just like that in my opinion, if you win, you have the eagerness to earn more while if you lose, you have the eagerness to get back your loss.

I think you get an adrenaline rush when you put money into gambling and win.  Maybe just betting gives you that rush.  Once you win you want to keep trying to win more.
bet does give adrenaline is different from other games. Gambling can indeed blind the hearts of people because of the lure of gambling earn big money very interesting

gambling is not addictive it is the person who gets hooked into gambling that gets addicted to the game.  In gambling you cannot control the game but you can control yourself.  if you gamble in casinos why don't you try betting in sports and feel and see the difference.

I don't agree you at all. Addiction means exactly you can't control yourself. Betting in sports also gambling and highly addictive. If you lose you play to get back your losses. That's how you end up being broke though.
If you have an addiction you must look for professional help.


yes you are right in your opinion.  there are lots of people who go to casino's and play for a couple of minutes but never get hooked to it.  They have this self discipline controlling their emotions in playing.  What you always notice when it comes to gambling is the ones who never stops playing as long as he has the resources to play with.  In the hundred percent of casino guests not even 50% of them are addicted to gambling they are not even regular players.

Yes this is 100 percent correct winning makes us to play gambling again and again so automatically we will addict this gambling. But same if we loose our first bet means we automatically stop betting because people will not take much risk in beginning once they lost there bet some people will stop there. so here winning is the main problem.

I think you get an adrenaline rush when you put money into gambling and win.  Maybe just betting gives you that rush.  Once you win you want to keep trying to win more.
Exactly! its an Adrenaline that make us can't stop playing,corious and still want to won more and more,its make people addicted on gambling,and maybe people who want stop playing gambling should drink some drugs that can lose their Adrenaline Hormones Grin
Gambling is addicting for the most people and that is because they also can see that there will be more people that is thinking that they can earn some money with it which that is actually bad.
But there are a lot of people that they can control themselves and that is important because they know that you can lose a lot of money with it.

It always goes out like this, if you don't have control in gambling you will be addicted. You might be wondering why many gamblers are addicted to gambling right? because they are greedy, they only want to focus on winning with no exact target while forgetting to consider that losing might also happen.

agree, this is also another factor why most gamblers are addicted. The urge to win big always exist on every player, especially when the gambler is on the losing side. Greediness is another big factor why they still stick to gambling, some of them want to get their losses and some want to get rich fast.
Well, it's really hard to get out of it but good for you that you managed to do that.

neuroscience and genetics claims that gambling and drug addiction are similar.

Yes they are indeed very similar with one another you can always say that because in gambling addiction you can see the very similar traits an addicted person behavior, and any psychologist would say the same thing that gambling really is addicted like drugs!

I don't agree with this at all.
maybe in a psychology perspective they are all having some similarities but in general I don't think they are alike. mostly because in other forms of addiction like drug addiction there is always a physical need on top of the mental need that derives the person towards that but this is not true at all about gambling.

But it is the truth all of this addiction is a mental illness that just like you said all have physical needs that they need to keep their urge in it and just like drugs they keep on coming at it and if they don't continue with this kind of urge they will feel something is wrong with them.

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.
Well i am very hopeful for you guys for I believe that you will be able to make it and get it back for the the lost. Most of the people say if there is a will there is a way, don't loose faith if you are good at it you don't have to worry. Gambling will really tear apart a person put yourself together and there you have it. If I were in your place I might do the same thing for there is no chance of me loosing every now and then this is very important on me and I have to focus this time.

Well I think focusing only on gambling will only put you in a lot of trouble, and I think not only trouble but a lot of pain and hardship what if you ending up addicted to it? what would you gonna do to? how does your family support you with you every needs in overcoming this mental illness called addiction?

Gambling is not so addictive as everybody is thinking it is. Because you lose money in a casino doesn´t mean you
are already addicted. it will become addicting if you go to many times to a casino and lose every time you just come
back to earn your money back it isn´t addicting directly.

That isn't really the point here, you can really never know when a person will get addicted or a person really is addicted to gambling because there are others that can control themselves towards addiction.

i know why gambling is so addicting and thats not becasuse of the game. Ok some games are cool but not that cool to put hundreds of dollars into it. If you lose money you want it back dont you. That is the point your getting addicted to the game on that moment you know that you have to take a step behind and leave the shit behind.

This is also a sick behavior seen in investments too. You invest in some stock, or in this case in some altcoin, then you lose money with it, you get mad and you try to fight the market, so you invest more, and you enter in a spiral of losing money instead of recouping loses or at least holding and seeing what happens. This people never learn it seems.

gambling and addictive.  it could be the URGE OF WINNING,  because addicting definitely is to keep on going no matter what the cost may be.  So why does a person is addictive to gambling is because that person wants to win.

but if addiction was going to be bad, especially if you always lose. it would be bad if you keep trying to play.

Gambling is addicting because of all kind of factors, I think gambling can really make you addicted for sure without any doubts.
Its the point that you can really enjoy it for a long time plus it can be very profitable if you have luck.
