People are into the need of getting more and more.
When it involves money their mind can't handle it even more and they keep gambling just to make a chance of winning.

You can control this addiction if you are going to use money management principles.

Here is a good blog article with example how to manage your money on betting: http://www.bettingadvice.com/betting/guide/money-management/8

Greed is the main reason yes. They want more and more. Having money means the world to them.
A normal job pays too less, so they try it with gambling.

It's because of the nature of gambling. You loose a lot and win a tiny amount. When you see small victories you think you have achieved something and that gets you excited and you start to gamble more.

The greed and the fact people are eager to win more and more makes the vulnerable for this gambling game.
Only strong players can play for fun or know when to stop.

It is not greed - more like a stupidity in most cases. If you are educated enough you know that there are no rich gamblers.
People who bet high stakes in a casinos are not people who became rich by winning their money by throwing Dice or playing Black Jack.
They are rich businessmen, entrepreneurs and CEOs bored and wasting their money on gambling.

I have witnessed first hand what made several friends become addicted. It also got me very close to becoming addicted and i believe it is the number one contributor to becoming addicted other than; an addictive personality. It is when you get real big wins from a relativity small starting amount. You will always remember how easy it was to win that amount, totally forgetting how easy it is to lose as well.

Gambling is addicying because of the euphoria that people felt when theycare winning. It's like a drug which get stuke in your mind and always look for it ad so you will try to gamble over and over againjust to get the same feeling again.

For many reasons - adrenaline, chemical reaction, fixation, and psychological reasons.  If you feel you are addicted the best thing to do is get help or try to treat yourself.

Just like any other addiction, a compulsive gambler feels a rush or high when they have a win. The high that they feel creates a rush of good feelings in their brain that makes them feel great!

Gambling is addictive as it allows to earn money just by risking your capital. If you win your bet, you will win extra money. There is the thrill of winning money which makes gambling so addictive.

I would argue that those are outcomes of gambling addiction, and not necessarily a cause of gambling addiction. It is entriely possible that are a major factor, but its interesting to see some of how addictions are treated. I'm not sure if you've seen the "In a Nutshell" video on addiction https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ao8L-0nSYzg, but it is possible that gambling addiction can be influenced by a number of different factors.

because u want to win, but  always lose,
 and when u want to recover u lost but got worse Smiley

not only lose that makes a person become addicted,
win and profit in gambling also makes a person become addicted,
when someone wins gambling, he would gamble again make a profit now significantly bigger, it's human instinct

Lame attempt on winning in gambling? What are you talking about? All of this thing that include in gambling is based on your luck, no matter that is gambling game or investment. All of these thing is based on luck so if you dont have enough luck to play better stop it. And the attempt that you really need is only by getting more money to gamble, thats all and the rest will be determined by your luck

Gambling addiction is usually one of two things. Either the knowledge that you've won before, and can win again, with the same ease, or the "need" to recoup your losses.

Either way though, that's a horrible mindset to be stuck in.
