It's addicting because people want to make money, and once they've started to make a bit, they'll want to make as much as possible.
Plus it's extremely fun, and like a computer/console game, it is very, very addicting.

everyone has a sense of greed, human nature, and the addict is normal
addict to gambling i think its not a problem

Addiction is the biggest problem when it comes to gambling. That's the main issue why people keep on coming back.
It's a serious problem, I don't understand how you can say that the addict is normal. Gambling should not be abused like this.

because gambling can make a lot of money in a short time and with little capital, so many people who want to get rich instantly from gambling

Yes and sometimes people think they can beat the house edge with their strategies, but its almost impossible, I wish people understand gambling more and try to understand that they cannot beat the house edge with strategies. I think only way to win is being lucky.

From my experience the problem is - that people with that mindset who are trying to earn money using shortcuts are almost never successful.
Why? Because even if they won, and earn a lot money they don't know when to stop and walk away from the gambling table.
In gambling the winner is not the one who won it all, but the one who know when to stop and go home.

Yes Gambling can make lot of money at short period of time but whenever you see it for long period of time always it results to get loss. But it is very easy to use and do not require any hard work so most of the people got addicted towards it. When you got addicted then it is always tough to get out of it.

The number I always hear is 90% return on average over time. So if you gamble 10k per year, you're likely to end up with about 9k.

The fact remains that gambling is a form of Entertainment, not of income (for most people). Obviously you can be a professional gambler if you're so inclined but the ratio of amateurs to professionals is probably pretty staggering.

When it's not fun anymore it's time to stop!

But not all people are lucky to rich fast in the short time. mostly for addicted you will lose all your money fast.. and you have only 5% chance to win...
They are addicted because they are having fun and they are greedy thats why they addicted...

gambling can let you to earn a lot of money, with very small amounts of money that you usually have, i think its still better not to wager more than you can afford to loose as most probably you will loose if you will gamble

Well most games are more fun then gambling.

And even better you won't lose any more.

But gambling comes with a promise you can win big, and that's why people gamble.

Nope you are wrong here. There is no way you can make huge winning by using small amount. With only small amount you will still get a little money although you hit jackpot you need to spend a lot of money so you will get it right away. You never see how much people stressed out from gambling, you just see some of their part only

To be able to not to be burned by gambling, one must allocate a small sum for his/her bankroll and just be satisfied with his/her time playing. It's not that difficult, really, unless that person is really aiming to win big and is willing to risk big for it. I know a few people who sold their house and lots--almost all of their properties--just to fulfill their gambling habit. That is scary, and because of the promise of large returns, many people still are addicted to gambling.

Gambling appeals to the weakness of a person’s character and develops recklessness, insensitive, and greedy. Some gamblers become psychologically addicted to gambling so that they cannot stop gambling and find themselves in a headlong plunge into personal catastrophe.
in psychology, called a pathological gambling addiction
One way to cure this addiction is hypnosis therapy
There is a lot of solution to stop your gambling addiction, hypnosis therapy might be one of it but you can also find a new interest to stop your gambling addiction.
Of course, now I have other interests that collect bird lovebird

Maybe i miss something here, but for me is very clear line between gambling and just fun. Everything happens before you start game. If you go play for win money - it is mistake and for sure clear gambling. If you have money to spend for fun - like for drinks, pizza, rollercoaster or cinema and you go play for that, it is safe gambling. Remember guys nobody born gambler. Play safe!

Yes and that line is money.

Whenever there is money involved you should be more carefull and alert.

If you can lose your money, it's best to reconsider your choice/amount/bet.

hypnosis is a good idea but it was only temporary, when someone go back to its normal state of mind , he/she will surely get back to gambling again Grin a new interest other than gambling will be the best solution to overcome someone's addiiction to it
