Imagine having this feeling and that feeling is so good but you only get it every once in a while. You would want to repeat that again and again. You want every second of your life to feel that feeling. Our brain does that when we win in gambling. When you win money in gambling, you'll feel that amazing thing that you can actually double your money in just seconds. You then eventually consider that feeling as a necessity.

Gambling is so addicted because of the fact that its enjoying, it already has been said many times but its the truth.
Gambling is fun and if you are playing you want to do it more and more.

Yeah, it is fun and way to get some money by chance so people are addicted to gambling, the fun in gambling and the money in their make gambling more attracted for the users and they then do not leave to gamble and make it their continuous routine.

The fun is a major thing, but i believe the urge to get free money is the biggest problem for addictive gamblers.
For some reason they want/ feel it's normal.
It's normal. It is called gambling because people want the urge to earn, there's no sysmptom of addiction in that. Addiction will come once you want all your earnings to be gambled to recover what you lose.
But after wanting to recovered what you lose, you just actually lose again until nothing left in your pocket. So, be careful of what you wish for, because not all the time you can recovered of what you are loosing. For me, I think it is much better to stop than to lose a lot of money/bitcoin.
Addiction is really dangerous thing, you must control yourself and gamble in a controlled environment. the want to recover your losses never goes away, just deposit like once, if you lose that deposit don't deposit again.

For me, whenever I deposited, it worked this way both when I lost and when I won. Because when you lose you want to get the red bets back to green, you want profit and not loss. And from "I want X profit" you'll reach the point where you'll say "I want my money back". If you are lucky to get your money back, you'll want profit again. And you'll lose in the long run.

because you can earn and loss profit at short period of time
not only that. however, gambling was consumed us. time becomes useless because we do gambling.

If you think gambling is just wasting your time means that you do not know how to manage your time, nothing else. So you need to learn how to manage your time on gambling, this is one of the most important parts on how to control yourself on gambling.


Yeah, start managing your time by not gambling. Gambling takes too much time from a person and time is his most valuable asset. So, do not waste you time on gambling because it does not benefit you anything except for a few money here and there. There are things which you can spend your time better like sports or learning trading or enhancing you skills. Those things can be more profitable than gambling.

I think its because you can easily doubling your money on gambling but the risk is you also can easily lose your money on gambling. I think gambling is makes more addicting when you win much money on gambling and it's make you want gambling more.
which makes gambling so addictive is not only when we win the advantage, but if we lose any money we would gamble again to regain the lost.
Yeah I agree with you whatever results you get on gambling than likely you would go back to gamble again. I do not know what magic is used by the gambling site for players to keep play gambling. but if you gamble you definitely feel very enjoy and exciting right ?

It is not the magic itself man, we are the only making ourselves addicted to gambling and that is for one reason which is "greed", with that we never get contented if we lose or win.

Here are my speculations why gambling is really so addicting:
1. Entertainment / joy when you are gambling your money.
2. Greediness
3. You want to return the lose you have made.

Add some if you think there are.

Yeah for point 2 and 3 are make any sense but for point 1 that entertain yourselves when you spend on your money like nothing without hoping to return back? Will that OK for everyone? Especially are you feeling some joyous moment when you lose your money that instant? Doesnt make any sense though
It should be summarize into 2 only, Entertainment and Greediness are the main reasons, if you are greedy you will not be able to stop even if you will or lose big so the outcome would always be lose on your part.

Entertainment at first, the fun of doubling your money in an instant then in the long run, it will become greed on winning or addiction to a certain level that cannot be stopped.

Too bad most people are being greed rather than entertain in gambling. Well, because that's how it should really is, that's why they call it gambling because they need money in fast way making them greedy in it.
yeah, greediness is not avoidable once in gambling. All of us wants to win when it comes in gambling. But gambling is really just for entertainment and if most people do this just to gain profit lot of people will become addicted in gambling and that is too bad.

Gambling is so addicting because when people have won one time then they think that luck is always going to be with them and they play further and more.
When you have tasted a win wit gambling then you are going to want more and more.
I don't think a winning could make people addicted, the only thing could make people addicted to gambling is a fun way to double your money with less effort if you compare it to real work that require hard work and muscle.
yes your emotion can make you addicted in gambling, it is your own personality and don't blame anybody except to yourself. Because once you cannot stop playing from betting in gambling that is actually an addiction. And it is really hard to cure. I guess we need the help of a psychiatrist. Because they know what to do for us to quit in gambling.

Gambling is addicting because:

If you win, you'll think you can make more because luck is on your side. You might play more and expose yourself to the house edge.
If you lose, you'll think that you win it back because luck will now be on your side after making you lose 20 games in a row.


Regardless if you win or lose, you'll always be addicted to gambling to some extent.

Gambling is addictive because everyone thinks that it is easy and free money witha small risky. However, it is not zhe case here. Gambling has big risks, and you can not win if you gamble even after you win. You will end up throwing away all your money because you will think that it is possible to win again- but it is not very common to win in streaks.

Big problem having that kind of thinking, you are entering in the wrong road and making the wrong journey. True, that we can make money in gambling but to think it's easy? it's the opposite. LOL!

Take it from me, I have the experience for a long time, and not I am still consistent - LOSER!

if at the beginning when he joined the gambling get a win, it's just a false victory, because with the win that will keep you constantly follow the gambling and the victory will not recur. with that, then the loss is what you will experience at any time following the gambling.

Not only gambling but sex, drinking, even eating and pretty much everything we do in our lives are somehow addictions because after all we are the creatures of habits and we need to repeat things in order to give meaning to our lives, but sometimes some of these habits become harmful and even destroy our lives.
Gambling just like drugs produces chemical compound in our brain which results in a good feeling and that is why is addictive.
not everything , only some that really addictive. there is drugs which well known as the most addictive things , addiction come to you when you have a high frequency on repeating certain activity , in this case gambling.

so i guess gambling just like drugs in term how both addictive .
Yeah they are both addictive, but they are more different, but in terms of money I guess it is just the same that they are spending money because of their addiction which is not good.

Yeah they are both addictive, but they are more different, but in terms of money I guess it is just the same that they are spending money because of their addiction which is not good.
At least there's a chance in gambling to win compared to our vices in life, with our vices in life we will not earn on them but we will spend to have them. That's the big difference and if you do better in gambling you might won big amount of money then stop.

Not only gambling but sex, drinking, even eating and pretty much everything we do in our lives are somehow addictions because after all we are the creatures of habits and we need to repeat things in order to give meaning to our lives, but sometimes some of these habits become harmful and even destroy our lives.
Gambling just like drugs produces chemical compound in our brain which results in a good feeling and that is why is addictive.

its really addicting in terms of keep thinking of what is the best strategy to use when you are in the winning position but that's the problem it won't be removed easily and you will always wants to keep on trying to beat the house and for sure you will keep coming back and it would be the start of your addiction.

Gambling is addictive because everyone thinks that it is easy and free money witha small risky. However, it is not zhe case here. Gambling has big risks, and you can not win if you gamble even after you win. You will end up throwing away all your money because you will think that it is possible to win again- but it is not very common to win in streaks.

It is definitely addicting for someone to think that they can win money consistently and chase their losses back when they lose on a site. This is a bad mindset because it'll keep them coming back time after time.

Gambling is addicting because:

If you win, you'll think you can make more because luck is on your side. You might play more and expose yourself to the house edge.
If you lose, you'll think that you win it back because luck will now be on your side after making you lose 20 games in a row.


Regardless if you win or lose, you'll always be addicted to gambling to some extent.

Indeed. That's why you never gamble what you cannot afford to lose.

This is one of the main reason why gambling is addicted.  Though gambler accepted the fact that they will most likely lost the game but due to this belief called partial reinforcement, the chance to gain or win in series of bets make them to go back and continue playing the games.  Another reason is the illusion that someone have control on what will happen next so by doing something before betting they believe that the outcome will be in their favor.

Yes, it is true . Most people just think that gambling can make them rich very quickly.
but the reality is very difficult to play gambling. we must have good skills and luck to win every game.

maybe you're right. many think that with gambling you can make money in a very short time with a very small risk, even I also always thought that way. however, I think it is the thing that really makes people addicted, if it really happens, because it felt it would make you try to play it again many times. Well, I do recognize that gambling is a game that can make people addicted in a very long time

This only applies to certain games like sport betting and poker whereby the players bet against other players. However, if we are talking about other gambling like table games or so, it will purely depend on luck and you will tend to lose in the long run.

Well, you know, people have a chance of winning money on each bet, and the fact that there is a *cough* chance *cough* of winning money on each bet is what attracts the people towards gambling. Also, the fact that without investing real money one can gamble, using the bitcoin faucets on the various gambling sites, is what attracts people. I think thats the reason gambling is so addictive.
