I think it's hormones and greed. When we are playing adrenaline kicks in and when we win serotonin makes us happy and of course greed makes us come back again.
Well, there are people who really are cannot control when it comes to gambling, they should not be gambling but we cannot control them
since they have their money to gamble. My personality really suits to be a good gambler as I know how to control now and I learn from
my experience. Just like other people, I was also addicted once...

Everyone wants to get profit, that is for sure and period. Think of no other reason except for profit. Im quite sure that most people will find other reason on why they gamble however the majority should know that the only reason that we gamble is to get profit either it is a month paycheck amount or lunch money

I can't say anything about this because this is the reality about gambling. The potential profit that every gambler can get with their specific games are making most of us to become addicted. And if you are not ready for that addiction you will end up going home nothing because opposite thing will happen to you, you'll lose a lot.

But that opposite thing happening in real life does not make them stop, even if they have no money left. The addiction to gambling kills from within. They start procuring money by illegal means to stop the craving and then end up with bad consequences. The greed of the person is the thing that forces them to play more and more while the temptation of becoming a millionaire fuels that greed. All these factors are important in making a person addicted to gambling.

Yes, in short the potential profit they are thinking they can get in gambling is the one that is pushing them to get into gambling. And that ends into greediness and addiction. There are a lot of factors that makes gambling so very addicting, because there are some that are for profit, some for entertainment and there are some that we really don't know what's behind their addiction.

You guys should seriously stop overthinking about this stuff. There is no such as greediness or some other sort of stuff that you guys said. The only thing that made people addicted are their own thought, the thoughts of wanting to keep on going . Eliminate that kind of thoughts and you cant be addicted with it

No one is overthinking here, everyone is expressing their own opinions as you are. I think that its greed that fuels a potential gambler to begin gambling and consequently get addicted to gambling. It is a vicious cycle in which a person if trapped cannot come out so easily and it start eating away their personal life as well. All those thoughts you are talking about are nothing but greed.

Most of the things that are addicting are things that feel good, things like drugs, food, extreme sports, sex are things that feel good and that can make people addicted to them, gambling can be fun and for some the thrill is too much and they become addicted to gambling.

What's with the overthinking? How can you say that there's no such as greediness? Is this word doesn't exist? And if ever I'm going to agree with you that gambling makes people addicted because of our own thoughts. And what do you think is that thought all about? It's all about winning, it's all about money that leads to greediness.

I agree that gambling is illegal in many countries, but then again it is legal as well in many countries. That is not what makes it addictive. Addiction comes from the mind being exposed to greed and temptation and the feeling that one can become a millionaire in seconds.

It is not at all easy to make money from gambling. This means you never tried gambling at all in real life. All gambling sites and casino have a house edge and that is what the owners have to milk money from the players. It it possible to win some bets but not all bets. In most cases you wont even be able to cash out your winnings before you hit a wrong bet and lose.

If what you said was true then no one will get addicted to gambling in places where gambling is legal, by your hypothesis, no one in a place like Las Vegas should be addicted to gambling but we know that is not true so your statement is completely wrong.

Right. Saying that gambling is addictive simply because its illegal is a very shallow reasoning. It may be illegal in your part of the world but most people who get addicted to gambling are not even aware if its illegal or not.

Actually they know it was illegal ,in real casinos it was legal. Well its not actually the point why most people are getting addicted to gambling. The money pot or the jackpot and the easy way to make double you money makes it In their mind but they dont even think that more often they lose big amounts before they won.

There is an impulse in the nerves of every human being who wants a great challenge, wherein the mind doesn't care about defeat and victory, this is called adrenaline, but this doesn't apply to people who are very busy in their daily work. I call this the nerve compound because it is always increasing and never exhausted.

Legal and illegal is relative because basically all forms of gambling are legal for adult humans, the most important is the responsibility and respect to the impact caused.

Gambling is addictive because it's illegal and it's pretty easy to make money from it.
If what you said was true then no one will get addicted to gambling in places where gambling is legal, by your hypothesis, no one in a place like Las Vegas should be addicted to gambling but we know that is not true so your statement is completely wrong.
Right. Saying that gambling is addictive simply because its illegal is a very shallow reasoning. It may be illegal in your part of the world but most people who get addicted to gambling are not even aware if its illegal or not.
Very few number of countries regulate gambling websites with limitations. So users from those countries will be agonizing to take part into gambling activities. This has been provided with ease through the gambling websites functioning with bitcoin. This eventually makes them a big addict than common users who don't have restrictions in using gambling websites.

I agree with that and that's what can happen in every country. The lesser restriction means there would be young people who can be exposed to that and is possibly happening right now. Not just adults, kids are getting very good in technology and in searching.

And that may prove to be a big problem becasue gambling is still considered to be games that you play with. Younger people would easily be attracted to gambling if it's that easily accessible and addiction can come at a very early age. It's going to be a big problem for parents since if a kid gets addicted, we all know where the money they'll use will be coming from

I don't know why but I always get a feeling to gamble, after then losing my money, I quit for some time and then continue, but I know I will lose my btc Sad

Why is it so addictive?
It is so addicted because it gives happiness and pressure to our life. Every single of game will so trill because all your knowledge and how to win will be uses to result a sucessfull. Then if lucky comes we want to play and play and want to increase our capital but when we lose we want to comeback our money. Gambling is not for entertaining because you can get more friends. But in the last it result bad effect not only your self but in our family.

It's normal to win and lose and that should not be new to us, one thing that will cause addiction is when you cannot
accept your loses and you will continue until you get back your loses.

On the other hand, it can also be addicting when you feel good about playing or gambling. Addiction comes from great satisfaction and high level of temporary happiness.

Well, not only the satisfaction, you are feeling good specially when you are earning money easily without even having a sweat. In other words, it satisfies your greediness, addiction do not comes from hapiness, hapiness comes from being comfortable to something making you happy, that means you can't be comfortable with gambling, you are just getting confused.

Make sense. But I am certain that there are a number of people who gambles conservatively that are happy doing it - I am one of them. Gambling is entertainment - entertainment makes happy in any sense I think.
