Gambling is addicitive because it is one of the easiest activity to pick up. It is suitable for all ages so even elderly can also play. You dont even need to understand how it works and you can even profit while being entertained.

Gambling is an easiest way to earn more money easily.But if you are doing it all time then it becomes an addiction.Gambling is also like a disorder it causes stress,anxiety,depression and bipolar depression.Gambling is not a problem if you can afford it otherwise you need to take care of your debts from your gamble.There are some strategies available to overcome gambling addiction you must know your limits of how much you can afford to lose.

Yea opinions are divided is it addiction or sickness. This is hard to answer both both are correct in some point. But dont be fulled that with gambling can make easy money, this is mainly from game or games you are playing. Each gambling game or even sport betting have some good and bad sided. Experience gambler explore weaknesses of these games to gain profit.


There is not a very big difference between sickness and addiction, actually they both are the same. Gambling addiction is a sickness. Thinking of earning from a game that can make us sick is foolish. It is not an income source and can never be one. As far as the weaknesses are concerned, then slots, dice and roulette cannot have any weakness. We cannot do anything about the randomness these games offer.
Gambling addiction is a disease. Once you're affected, you can't be easely healed. I believe the main reason that gets people to be addicted on gambling is greed. We all want to make easy money. Some people do not want to make any effort and they keep gambling and gambling hoping to make the amount they dream to have. A gambler should learn self control and avoid getting carried away.

Not only greed, people who lost much money on gambling will be harder to quit gambling. Because they already lost so much money on it and they only way to winning back all their loses is keep gambling and hope they can win big which is hard to do. That's why gambling is addicting.
I don't think the reason why they can't quit gambling is because they lost a lot of money already. The truth is they want to keep on playing because gambling is already part of their routine they can't go on a day without playing their favorite game, addicted to gambling don't mind about the money anymore what they are looking is the satisfaction of what gambling can give them.

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?
Addiction to gambling is like any other kind of addiction . You try the experience wanting to know what does it feel like , you like it , you say to uour self that you won't abuse it and yet you fall in addiction's trap . Specially if you get some money easily out of it theb you'll like the idea of easy money and continue to gamble.

Because of the pleasure you feel when you are winning and the greed when you are loosing. People think two ways it’s either to play more to earn more money, or to play harder to gives back the money you loose. It’s really addicting specially when you are loosing money, the greed will drive you to go on casinos.

Well, it is a pity that most gamblers come back to play to catch up with their losses. That eventually makes this form of entertainment no more entertain those. If only gamblers play to have some relaxing time, it would be much better.
There are a lot of gamblers that only play for entertainment in their spare time to reduce stress or just kill time . Those are non dependant of gambling and doesn't consider it as a source of income thus they are enjoying themselves when gambling . Wheras other people who try to cover their losses will feel more frustrated and in result they'll loose even more money .

Right.I supposed that gambling should be played only just to entertained people during their leisure time but others have taken it seriously.They became addicted with it  especially if they have won or lose big amounts.We can't control people to act like this.It's how they correspond to the different situations.

It was addicting due to they were given fun and also profit to the winners, however to those people who was not lucky at all and can't experience to win. It was results of being hot headed, stress and simply anger.
Definitely I'm also player of gambling but I only set a exactly amount of capital, so weather win or lose the results I already quit once my capital vanish. Because if I can't stop playing there's a tendency that all my funds will  lost.

Anyone who has lost his wealth due to gambling and then he is desperate about recovering it by playing the same game shows how much that person cares about money. Caring about money is greed indirectly as far as gambling is concerned.

If you ask me, I don't think so it is money love that drives people crazy about gambling. They experience something different in it which causes them to come back every time. It can be relief or similar stuff.

Because the gamble is very fun, especially when getting big wins and get a lot of money. It is perfect happiness, that is what makes addictive, although in the end gets defeated, but gambling addiction will be difficult to remove.

An important aspect of quitting gambling is to find alternate ways to handle these difficult feelings without gambling like spending more time with your friends and with your family, have a quality time.
Yes you need to control yourself in addiction of gambling.Find another way to avoid it spending your time to your family and make an importance about what you earned in bitcoin you work hard for it atleast it makes a sense when you spend it.

I agree with you, gambling is addicting because of the excitement and rush you would feel when playing. Although most gamblers lose their money easily it wont stop them to keep playing for the reason they want to take back their losses and they enjoy what they're doing.
Greed is the reason why many gamblers are addicted and it takes time to completely overcome this.

Perfect happiness or satisfaction can't be achieved by gambling alone.

As once it has been said, money can't buy everything, the time you spent with your love ones would be better.

The main reason for a person to become a gambling addict is when they constantly wins and when the time  they lose the game tendency is they want to get the money back so they will gamble again and again and so on and so fourth. And that will lead them to become addicted in gambling.

You can't prevent yourself from getting addicted to something that can set you free , give you wings and make you a king without even spending any effort . It's one of the few things that i enjoy the most in my life and my only escape , so addiction isn't as pejorative as it tends to be in my case .

Or arguably the point is too much gambling, no limit how much money will be used to gamble, lack of self-control are some of the causes why people addicted to gambling. Therefore, if you want to gamble, do not need to gamble too much, set the limit so that we are not too much gambling and must be able to control themselves well.

That is why many people say that gambling is very dangerous because if we can not control our emotions then we can get into a very strong addiction. better to play just to seek entertainment than play with the aim to seek profit. so intentions become the most important thing to be aware of, if our intention is to get pleasure then we will not enter the world of addiction that is very risky for our life in the future.

That is a good point, but nobody I think will be that good in setting a certain limit for himself and abide to that strictly. Some may go a little beyond that and most will go over beyond that. So setting up limits is something that is hard to achieve that makes gambling so addicting.

Setting limits would really be the hardest thing specially on gambling field.Yet its easy to say but really hard to do in the middle of the situation. Gambling is addicting specially when you do experience winnings because excitement that you would feel would really boost up the greediness inside you.Why i can say such thing? Because this is how i feel anytime i do play.

I don't think that it's too hard to set limits for yourself, It's not hard like when we decide to quit gambling at all. So, everyone can set his limits, it depend of how much he had money. People can follow this limits and avoid to lose so much money, so the objectiv is that the limits can proftect us from breaking, it's smart to use that.

When you always winning in gambling the way you want to gamble again maybe its for fun but you need a self control and limit yourself to avoid being addictive in gambling.Set up yourself and make an importance to every money that you earn.

Totally agree but it doesn't end at setting those limits but the commitment, discipline and will to follow through with those limits is what matters the most. Most gamblers even though they know the right thing to do can't discipline themselves enough to follow a plan and execute their games in perfection.
