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.

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

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.
If you are going to watch a movie then money is involved ,so you need be careful and alert ? money is in everything around us.It's the risking potential,if you keep on risk something you should not lose then it's wrong and should consider avoiding it.

It's addictive because it is fun and you can win.
When you are winning you won't stop since you want to win more.
When you are losing you won't stop since you want to win your money back.

Yes but when we win in first time we should stop and play small

Because of the thrill and entertainment, it's a kind of adrenaline rush I think like people who jump from planes with parachutes Wink Don't play anything more than your playing money however and never actually try to depend on it... Storing your private keys in a far place is the best option to you IMO

I dont know whether gambling can be compared to juming from plane with parachute , but yes its risky and can be really too much to you in case you get a hang of it.

Gambling is a game that is with money and when people win they want to win more and they believe on it and when they lose they want to get there money back. That is people are just addicted to gambling.
I think we can just see a huge think that people can control there self but I think the most can control.

For me it is highly addictive because it is fun. Besides the adrenalin rush it gives you greatly contributes to this addiction.

You just described probably every hobby activities and entertainment methods.
For example recent research shows that the most common type of addiction is smartphone and social network addiction, and if far more widespreaded than gambling will ever be.

But that smartphone hobby isnt destroying you money, it just makes you dizzy and lazy. But I still think gambling is the most dangerous ddiction I have ever seen.

sadly to say, smartphone can be a very dangerous tool. i have seen students so addicted to their phone that they cant study properly and they cant focus at all without touching the phone for 5min.

I've seen people who wasted thousands of dollars on games like Clash of Clans or Candy Crush Saga just to buy virtual items for it, it is very similar to gambling imo.
Gambling addiction may ruin your wallet but drugs addiction will ruin your body as well - it is far more dangerous.

playing in some no matter which of gambling, but in the first phase of people trying to understand that and not realizing the uniqueness and mutter about people in uniform about gambling and that this acquired form of energy is very easy gambling tables ( to make it as comfortable as possible from playing, though ) , which does not squeeze and tighten, and giving the chance without any superfluous exercises or special devices allowing to get the od of one of your I, not , what , I , which is formed in this moment, and that kind of dampens the fear of death, and even produces some of , but as negative as that in the hormones of happiness , and where some lack of it, to play big, and so on, i.e. people with the help of the obtaining of the form and the procedure begins to produce a certain narcotic reflex, though, which in any case has the power to addiction and the probability to pass into the habit of high, though not acute claims, but in extreme terms, of course but, I think you, causes in society unkind murmurs

For me its better to addicted on gambling than addicted in drugs because you will be crazy or you will be die fast and also if you are addicted in drugs i think you can kill anybody without fear because of drugs.

in my opinion the main reason is the fact that it makes people think that its actually possible to win a lot of money in a very short period of time, it makes people want to try again and again
