I suggest you to just store most of your bitcoin in cold storage and print out the private key in paper and store it safe. This will make you unable to send bitcoin easily. I was also addicted to gambling before, and also delete bookmarks of gambling sites and clear the cache. Cool

It is like taking drugs and heroin too. I don't know one most probable reason is the money that is involved. When you win once, you want more so you try more to win more. When you lose, you want to try harder all the more for a hope that maybe this time you are going to win, but you lost again so another try maybe this time you will be lucky until you finish all that you have in a hope that you will get more. So better not even try gambling at all.

In everything, once we get hooked on it and already part of our daily habits, then we think that it is just normal that is why most of the people that get addicted to gambling most likely are not aware that they are already addicted to it because they think that it is just  normal.

Nice question.
My thoughts on " Why gambling so addicting " are
The will to earn money in a short period of time without doing any work in other words greed for fast money Cheesy

This is what I think going to read what others think.


It's hard to deny this reason, since gambling also affects the element of greed within us, addiction is the strongest driving factor that will continue to enter our minds. The power that comes from addiction can only be stopped by family or religious factors, but as long as we are able to manage well, nothing bad will ever happen.

Of course we need to be greedy when we play because we play to get money. If we are not greedy we will stop when we only get few satoshi. To be honest Im not satisfied with just few satoshi that is why I will play until I got a decent amount because that is why Im coming to play in the first place
It seems to me that this will already be an addiction, when a person plays until they get a good win. So you can lose everything and not get anything as a result. Gambling is a very serious and terrible hobby.

Of course we can lose everything because that is the risk. Sometimes people dont want to lose because that is not possible and we know that we are most likely going to lose. I wonder why people keep playing and wagering alot of money to hope that they can win alot, in the end when they lose they will think the site scammed them
To satisfy themselves they have to blame someone  :/
quite bad but no one should wager the money that they cannot afford to loose no matter what happens.

It is very seasy to stop playing gambling yeah maybe it is your daily routine that you will think about the gambling the most but think of how many bitcoins did you actually manage to lose?? Let say that you are winning the game 2-3 but did you ever think that you lose 5-6 times? Im aware with this kind of addiction that is why im learning to control my emotion over gambling.

let's set our limits and follows it. Getting addicted can lead to bad things , anything that is too much is not fine for the body so better keep ourselves balance ,in gambling keep our playing balance like having limits whenever playing.

Lets not do that and only bring small amount like I always do. If you do this then it is much more effective than setting limit. Sometimes when we set limit, we wont obey it so instead of doing that lets just do the other thing and bring small amount. So if we lose thats it, if we win than that is good thing because we can use it to gamble again
Yes better is never try gambling. If we are already playing gambling then suppose gambling as an entertainment, never mention gambling is a job because then we can be addicted and risk losing all the money we have. So do not ever try when we do not want to take this big risk.
three types of peple come to casino and then become addicted, one thsoe people who come to join as for fun and enjoyment, secondly those people who become disappoinnted from finding job or to start any other mean of earning livilihood and third those people who start playing gambling from very early age. so all the three types of peple when contineu gmabling for some day then they become addicted and then it become difficult for them to stop gmabling at once and for most of the time the only become succeeded to stop gamblig.

For me gambling isn't addicting at all and I play only to spend my free time and have some fun. As I don't play for substantial amounts, my life will go on and I don't care much about the losses or try with force to get them back.

I think one reason to get addicted is if you want to enforce to get your losses back! The more you lost, the more and with higher amounts you play to get it back. Second reason surely is also the personality of a player. As I never got addicted to drugs, sex or gambling, it also must depend on the mentality of an addicted gambler.

It's only addicting if you are indisciplined and can't control yourself to follow your own laid down rules and regulations. I don't think disciplined gamblers are controlled by gambling but they rather control their game and bank accounts.

Sometimes, we really don't recognize that we are already addicted to a certain thing especially when we are having fun doing it with the impulse to play at any given time of the day. Yes, it is true that when we are chasing our loss that is really the start of more loses because we are no longer thinking critically and just being driven by our emotions.

Indeed, the gambling is very close with addiction feeling and surely occus because of curiosity want to get a high chance of winning every time we playing and out of control in the play because of selfish / emotion that overflowed without being aware and came for granted. To overcome this i think we should prepare the target / strategy written when we playing, and add other more activities besides gambling.

Gambling is so addictive because once you win you get greedy and you try to win more, and if you loose you keep trying to gain what you lost. If you don't control yourself, you become addicted and it may have bad consequences on your life!

Gambling is one of the most popular recreational activities to be enjoyed. One factor for the gamblers to be addictive is the experience of early big win. Winning a large amount can be sometimes overwhelming and the fact it arrives early means that the player think it is easier to land such thing.

One of the best thing to have fun nowadays. I dont need to change my shirt or even get out of my room because I can do it just like that. I can open my computer and access my favourite site without leaving my room. I can also get some money from it that is why gambling is a very addicting and entertaining things for me
there's always a good and bad things , when you gamble online you might have a flexible way to get entertained and earned money through of it . but you wouldn't have a good time to hangout together with your friends , talking bullshit but funny with people around have a lot of experience during that time. however what makes gambling addictive actually not about what you have said above i guess , but more to how your mindset think that gambling are the easiest way to make money. it's completely wrong!

Gambling can be the easiest way to make money but there is a caveat: it is also the easiest way to lose all your hard earned money. So gamble with caution and only play just for fun and not for profit because you do the latter, you will only be disappointed and stressed out.

Well once you win if you are careful you will not gamble more. But in real life most people are greedy and want to play more and more so as to win more. But they forget about the House Edge in EV- games and end up losing a lot. Gambling is addicting because of the greed that people have and also because people are having and ego to satisfy - that they have to win and they wont lose to a casino. Again jealousy over big winners is also a factor.

One thing I know about gambling addiction that is when one person have the so called "uncontented". I know gambling makes a person to become uncontented about money, uncontented about time, unconted about fame that what we get in gambling that's why many of people become addicted without even knowing it.

The casino owners want their players to be not contented with their earnings. They want the players to play more and more so as to make them lose more. In gambling the more you play the more your chances of losing the money and less chances of winning big. The complete opposite of games where practice makes perfect like EV+ gambling. EV- games only need luck and if you dont have that and keep playing then you are sure to lose.

Practice makes perfect for EV+ gambling? you must be kidding me. It doesnt matter wether it is EV- or EV+, in the end it is much more the same because it requires luck. Although you are much likely to win in an EV+ games however certainly you can lose as well that is why luck will still remain as the main factor

You're correct, but not at all. There's a HIGH RISK waiting when you do a gambling. A risk that you can't able to return it back when you loss a large amount of money. They you're trying hard to recover your loss and you didnt see that your loss becoming bigger and bigger as time passing by. I will play gambling if it is a free money. I already experienced of being drained because of gambling. That's why I don't wanna to experience it again. I never do a deposit again. Cheesy Sometimes you must need to be a smart as well.

That's one of the reason why gamblers become addicted to gambling. If we always win we are playing more because we know that we are going to win but we did not know that we are starting to get addicted and the worst scenario is when we lose that's the time that we will have more problems because of chasing loses.

that is why before you start playing , you better to know well about how the risk works here.

i mean you should gamble only with the amount that you can afford to lose only , otherwise everything could be messed up and ended badly. gambling are addictive thing because of its easy money maker '' idea '' , people get lured and that is the biggest mistake.
