That's the nature of gambling like gambling, because it requires time to be used to it and adrenaline rushing causing increased desire to gamble during it as a part of it.

I always feel addicted due to the reason that everyday I feel I will win and at the end , end up loosing.

Yes, that's exactly the point. You shouldn't think you'll win, ever. Especially when you already have an experience of ending up loosing. Any game is interesting only if you learn from your mistakes. Play safe and you'll be fine.

I think gambling is so addictive, because people really just want more and more. They just can not control themselves and think but more money.
What they do not know is that they lose more money than winning.

Its so addictive because the profit you can make is very attractable.
Most people do not think about the consequences that are involved by gambling.

No, that is not illusion of winning, it is just another example of gambler fallacy. Your winnings were real, you just didn't know where to stop.
Knowing where is the time to let go, stand and go home is the most important lesson every gambler should learn if we want to earn money from gambling.

People see gambling as a game clear. They like to do and then they become addicted.
What they think is that they can earn a lot of money but that's actually not true.

I am sure it has been said, but it's the dopaminergic release when you risk life/homeostasis/resources.

Think about it -- how much do you care if all that's at risk is $0.00001. What about 1 BTC? Yeah, a little more risky to your survival, right?

The dopamine connection is reinforced by the fact that I am way more into gambling when I have my adderall prescription filled.

it is just the addiction to thrill. since gambling is bringing the players some kind of rush, it is so addictive for people to seek that rush. also the hope for winning and getting rich is an illusion that makes people desperate to spend more and more money in order to maybe win someday.

I believe the thrill of gambling is only when you are aiming for profits. So, basically gambling thrill is just because of achieving some huge profits out of your bankroll. All easy money making ideas will addict all human. If you come out of aiming profits, you may get rid of those addictions.

Most of us are addicted to gambling because of greed. Once you start gaining, even if you lose you still believe that you are going to be lucky and win big. The cycle just repeats itself.

i think is addicting because it makes you feel in control, that you can win based on luck or skill and the idea of making more of something. but losing is a tough pill to swallow.

Feel in control ?
I doubt it, the only thing that's in control at gambling is that your luck Tongue
And losing is normal, the key of making money in gambling is know when to stop
Some people think they can recover their loss by gambling more and hoping to make more money
Which sometimes ended up with busted out of all their money Sad
So yea, i doubt if you are in control

because it's entertaining and makes making profit look easy "it is not actually easy at all, even professional gamblers rarely make big profit"
gambling is entertaining, the fun is only temporary and protracted grief

It depends on how you see this thing as. Some people keep playing it because they know one day he will recover their loss. And know when to stop is not available for addiction because untill someone drag them there is no way you could get out easily. If you can control everything I am sure you will get good profit. Just maintain it for 1 month is enough to earn

They don't know. they HOPE.

Nobody just "recovers his losses". The main principle of gambling is that it'll just be losing money again.
You can't beat the statistic ^^

where does that 1 month come from? from your own exp? then i think it is hardly going to work for other ppl. tons of ppl out there maintain it for years and still can't see a sign of profit.
