I think that many people want to make money in an easy way and start gambling, but this very often develops into dependence and eventually a person loses all the money, but can not stop.

Everyone want to make money as easy as possible but only a few will realize that we cant make money from gambling. Gambling is definitely not for us that want to make money in short time. It is designed so that we can have fun, besides that I dont see how we can make money if we keep losing in the long term. Everyone knows this and keep playing to get money

because now gambling is already a necessity, with the switch of the function then the gambling will be the opiate for the players, because they do not rethink the big risks that will be gained if continue to play gambling.

with due respect, I don't think so that gambling is already a necessity nowadays because there is still majority number of people that do not gamble. However, I could say that due to casinos that are accepting bitcoin as a mode of deposit and cashing out, not to mention that it is very easy to join online casinos that are accepting bitcoin, there will be many people that will be going to gamble in one way or another.

I think most of us are getting hook or addicted to it because we want an easy way to make a money.
And as a result we would mostly be too greedy to gain some profit from it .
Lazy on working, want to earn easy money without moving your own body . Only clicking bla bla bla and easy money. That how people get addicted to gambling.Most of them are lazy working and not responsible person. Gambling isn't for responsible person. Cause they will stay away from it.

In fairness, there are still a number of successful people that are gambling, however, most are just to kill time, having dun, and entertain themselves.. We should not make some hasty generalization that all of the gamblers are irresponsible because I am a responsible father to my son and wife.

Yes I agree with you. Having general assumptions to all gamblers is a mistake, it must be that the people who would say all gamblers are irresponsible are the irresponsible ones. And good job being a good father and husband. Keep it up!

Unfortunately many generalize gamblers as one group of irresponsible dudes and it's very unfair and wrong. I'm a gambler but very responsible with my conduct at home and in public.
We can able to generalize since all people almost know on what are the fate of those gamblers but there are people who are really responsible on their gambling habit.As long they are not compromising anything important then it would really be just okay.Gambling is really addicting and if you cant able to handle that such addiction then for sure you would really mess up your life.
Some gambler does have a good control over their emotions and actions. They really are the smart ones and only survivors in this brutal risky world. Most of gamblers do make plans and set rules but fail to follow their own words. It is because we, humans are fragile inside. It is a difficult task for us to stay away from something that is craving for us. Gambling must be played with limited amount for fun purpose only.
I agree on what you have said here.All people are fragile specially when it comes to emotion aspects which means no matter how we do set some limits there are instances that it would really change in the middle of our engagement on playing gambling.It cant really be avoided this is why gamblers do really differ on how they gonna control theirselves on such situations.

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?

I am no expert in gambling but I have read a lot about it. They say it is addictive because you get to earn a lot without doing much. However, there are times you lose, and all you want to do is gamble more so you get to get back all you lost with the hopes of having more. Say you gambled 100 US Dollars, then you won 50 US Dollars, that would amount to 150 US Dollars. That's winning, and that in itself is addictive. Imagine earning without doing hard labor? So yeah, that's it. However, there are times you gamble 100 US Dollars but you lost. So all your money is gone one moment. Now, what should you do? That question comes to mind. The initial idea is to gamble a bigger amount than that amount lost so as to get back the 100 US Dollars lost. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. It is the winning that keeps one addicted. It is also the process of losing with the hopes of winning that causes gambling addiction.

Gambling is so addicting because it gives easy money, big profit in the short run and gambling really gives so much fun if it is already your habit. One thing more is when the person is greedy, he always wanted an easy money and big profit in the short run and only gambling can give that easy money to them. Gambling really drives people to bet more and play more. Thats some of the reasons why bitcoin is so addicting.

Gambling is popular every time any kind of gambling gives a big advantage in a short time, that's why it's called addictive because the addiction itself is owned by every human being.so the last point is the word loses but does not make the gambler give up, all the gamblers have a curious nature rather than greedy.

The only reason why I think I got addicted to it back then was,
I was too greedy and I want to have an easy money and I was looking at gambling sites as it is the easiest or fastest way to have some money.

Gambling offers the opportunity to become rich almost without doing anything and those who like easy money will come back again to try again. You need to set a limit for the game in order not to lose everything.

The opportunity that only few can get but or nobody ever did not unless you gamble by buying a lotto ticket and got lucky to win the jackpot price. The irony of life even if we know what will be the effect of gambling still we try our luck with this concept.

One thing you should understand about gambling is a must-have pattern, otherwise it would all be able to give a great loss. Because a gambling basically a strategy, and if we do not use or play with the wrong strategy then it surely brings is the defeat of vice versa. So, it would be much better before doing any gambling then the main steps is to do an analysis to good use. for if missteps will all give a very bad impact.

Actually, I really didn't experience gambling, but in my observation to people who played gambling, they are seems so addicted because it make them feel happy when they gamble. Though, most of the time they lose in gambling, still they find it enjoyable and it will make them gamble again no matter how much they will lose. It is addicting because people want to stick on the things that will make them feel happy.

Like you said, it is only about making money without doing anything in most cases. Some people do play it for the sake of fun but still majority consider it a source of income. Greed also plays a major role in this. Winning money for once or twice gives hopes to the gamblers that they can accumulate a lot of wealth this way. Ultimately, they ruin themselves.
Gambling becomes an addiction for both the fun seeking and the profit seeking gamblers despite of the fact that both of them become victim to it for different reasons.

The fun seekers find it as a way to spend their free time and to enjoy life in its fullest meaning without much difficulty whereas those who have greed for money could never calm their nerves until or unless they earn huge profits at a little cost.

Consistent result in favor f the gambler is an urge to opt for more and more gambling until they face some big loss.

Why is it so addictive?

Gambling is one of the most addictive things that people can be addicted to. One of the factor is that person experience of an early big win. The buzz is winning such a large amount can sometimes be overwhelming and the fact it arrives so early means that player thinks it is easy to land such wins than what it is in reality.

You know the wiring in the brain that helps you learn a new hobby or study for a test. It exploits the same wiring, so the more you gamble the stronger the connection becomes and it also releases chemicals that reward you for doing so.  Have seen studies that show a drug addicts brain next to a gamblers and the same areas light up for reward. 

They seem to believe that we used to be more risk/reward related back in the caveman days. Meaning we where rewarded when we took down a big dinosaur but it came with great risk. So gambling works on that part of the brain. Still a lot to be learned in this area as well.

Because our brains are already overshadowed by big dreams that gambling present us so we go back to gamble. Lose or win just the same, we will keep coming back and back, until finally we realize that much has been lost yawning because of gambling.

In fact gambling is giving hope to people to make good money from gambling, as gambling look like an easy way of making money. In fact most of the gambling game do not require any knowledge or study, but you just need your luck, but in fact it is not so easy to be luck for every time and therefore the chances of losing money is more as compare to winning it, and we can only realize the fact when when enter in the world of gambling practically.

We are brainwashed, is this what are you trying to say? Probably yes, because we keep on thinking that the big wins from other gamblers can possible happen to us. And that's why everyone of us are keep on gambling and it is making us an addicted gambler. This is not new, gambling is very addicting just like the usual type of addiction from other things and I don't want to mention any of them, you all know it.

All addictions are bad so we shouldn't addict to anything. As you said easy and quick money offers makes people crazy about gambling games but they forget that in reality, they are risking their hard earned money to get this easy money. In this world earning money is not so easy if that is possible you will not see so many people poor people in this world compared to rich guys.
