People see gambling as a game. They like it because they have fun.
And they still think that you can earn a lot of money with it, but that's actually not true.

They lose more money than they bring in. But they do not realize.

Its so addicting because you can make fast money.
Plus people see big numbers on their screen and the think they can win.
Its sometimes also fun to play a game that you like at a gambling website.

No one is having fun with gambling, there is nothing fun in gambling if there isnt any money involved. There is some fun if you win in gambling but seriously no one is having fun when he lost but when you keep on winning that where the fun started therefore gambling is very addicting, once you won you will keep on coming till you busted everything

Yes it is the adrenaline of some people they think they will win a high amount.

The most will lose a high amount, you need a lot of luck.

I think you just need to know when you stop, don't stay gambling with all your money.

They also had to think that they can namely be more rich. But that's actually not true. Because they lose more money than they receive.

But they realize later. That is why it is so addictive.

And that's why it's important for people who want to stop gambling to search for another time consuming activities to divert them away from it Wink
I suggest try to do a puzzle or crosswords, that activities tend to consume hours of your time and can actually help your brain Smiley
or maybe just play games with your friends for hours Tongue

gamble games like poker or mahjong is still entertainment without money involves. even just watching other people play is exciting.

There's no excitement for me if you are just a watcher of the game its excitement if you are the one who play in the game and there's a thrill while playing but if you will be addicted on this game you lose or drain your money. Because of excitement and its fun you will be addicted on the game.
Thats why i think why people addicted also i think they are gamble because they want to win some money easily than working it in a job..

If you don't allow gambling to rule your world it's actually a pretty entertaining pastime if you play recreationally. Remember if you treat it like a hobby and not a job you can have fun while winning money. For example I have a little amount of money set aside for sportsbetting every week. My quality of life will not change if I lose it but I may have some fun and win a couple of drinks or some movie tickets for next Friday night blockbuster Wink

It is not "cash" if it is still in the casino database. I wonder how addicted gamblers can be blind because of numbers on their screen.
Gambling is also a nice way to lose money too. Cash out as soon as possible after you won. Just an advice. Smiley

Life sucks.

I am not sure who loves to loose, so yeah we all are sad when it comes to loosing bets and money.
Gambling gives addiction when money is involved, if you want to avoid the addiction, play with free money or consider money as free.

Hah! Indeed. For some reason, I am very entertained with gambling websites.
It is not about the profits, maybe I just love numbers. Kiss

Actually such activities like solving puzzles, taking part in quiz and such can give you control over your gambling , true. But the issue is you have to quit gambling also, if someone do activities like that and gamble to, tough to imagine him leaving gambling habits.

And some people get tempted to bet when they see big odds, they dont care if the bet will end as a win or loose, but they just gamble in hope. I think odds matter less, if you win then it matters, if you know you will loose, why even care much for odds.
