Gambling is so addicting because we love making money without effort. That's what professional casinos do. They let you win at first to get you exited and greedy for more then they taking your money.
There is a bigger effort needed in order to succeed in gambling, the moment we underestimate gambling and we think that it's a way to make easy money that is when we lose a lot of money. Gambling can give us easy money but only if you are smart enough and has the skills to be consistent in a long period of time, if you do not possess that talent, just gamble for fun to be safe.

Because, no more fun activities other than gambling. Activities of people who have alot money for wasted. Especially if lullaby will get jackpot, then addicted that happened. Unless, no money is risked then gambling becomes a good fun.

Your not making sense here. There are lots of much fun activity aside from gambling. If you go out play ball, drink in a bar, kiss a girl. Those are better if you would ask me.
Gambling is not a healthy activity at all. There are many other ways of killing your time besides gambling. Gambling is not a healthy activity at all, it is just good in the beginning when youre re winning some money. If you keep playing it, you are going to become an addict within no time and without any warning.

Obviously there are many other games and activities which are healthier than gambling and examples you have given are correct.
I think gamling isn't about fun but about excitement , people always overexcited when it comes imagine a huge prize.
Instead they get achieved what they have expected before.
It is always give them a bad things no doubt , but because of gambling addiction they are keep chasing that non sense goal to keep get a winnning.

Well for me, it is just a matter of individual preference. We cannot just tell people that they should do what we think is right because for them it may not be fun and they only get that level of entertainment that they want in gambling with money that they can afford to lose.

There are many things we wanted to in our life, and it is our own choice what to do, but most of us wants to do that involves money, where we thought we could earn money but the thing is that what we thought about gambling is not true at all, we lost that is why we get addicted to it, and if we get addicted, we can't help but to gamble everyday even though we know we would always lose.

Gambling is addicting because of human greed.

It's the reason why we have to be aware that every time we gamble we need to know our limitations. It is all starting there, if you are not conscious of your limitation that will start to make you addicted. You win without thinking of limitation and you gamble without limitation. That's likely very possible to give you an angle of becoming addicted soon as gambling is simply addicted when we are winning.

some people know their limit but they try to push that limit over them. Sometimes people that keep pushing themselves doesnt know when to stop and it is bad which could make them heavily addicted someday. I have been getting through this stage already so I know better than most people how it feels to be addicted when you are pushing over your limit

They know they limit but they can't control their minds. It's hard to control when you are in that moment that you are thinking that gambling will help you to survive when you are in times of needs. In this time if you are feeling the same way like those gamblers better to shutdown your computer or things will get worst.

I think this addict ability is one of the most apparent and main features of gambling, You can't completey control yourself and you desire more of it, Not sure about the scientific aspect but I guess it has to do with hormone stimulation on the brain and the like.
We should at least try some money management even with addiction IMO.

That means they dont know their limit right. If they know their limit then they should stop once they reach that limit. Some people keep saying that they cant control it. I know it is hard but when they have tried their best they should be able to do it. Just like me, I reached this state after keep on doing it and following the limit that I set

[/quotea]I think that all these reflections that one can control oneself during gambling is nothing more than mere talk. Everyone who at least once in his life tried to bet, never stopped right away.

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.
Correct the opportunities we will never get in real life that is what attracts us towards gambling we always need to understand gambling is just a short term solution and sometimes it might even make you good money but to make more money you always need hardwork and dedication

Other people became that addicted of because they taught that full happiness can be achieve if they play and play as expecting lots of chances will come all the way, but they're wrong. That's right gambling was just for short term bets which could possible give you lucky chances of winning, but I don't see it profitable if we make it long term. Better to work for money like bitcoin jobs and other sources of income like physical jobs, due to sustainable amount it may provide to us.

it's really dreamy when people usually imagine how much money they can make through gambling when you stake $100 double it to $200 , $400 , $800 and so on easily within a couple of minutes , the reality always far different from what people want. they didn't think realistically and prefer to follow their gut to become greedy in the end.
This is a usual stuff and a usual aim for most gamblers out there who do play games.It cant really be avoided or to be removed on ones mind on believing that they can able to make good money or profits on gambling easily.Yes, it is actually possible but only if you are just lucky enough.What if doesnt? Then expectations would really be broken for sure.
yeah i'm just talking about how gamble make people addicted based on my personal experience and several people around me. that vouch actually applies to everyone. we are in same purpose to complete an impossible mission to make money in gambling. keep being an addict and you would find you are a broken guy sooner or later. let's move on and looking for something better than gambling , let your gambling habit as your way to get an exclusive entertainment and step by step quit from it.

Because all people wants to be filthy rich and the greed fuels it more so once we tasted a sweet little victory from gambling or lose then we get addicted more and more.

Sometimes greediness strikes when you are playing gambling it is matter of uncontented when you are winning and uncomfortable when you lose some of your money.

The greediness is one of the reason why people get addicting of gambling especially for those people just newbie in gamble. Because like what you say they re not contended even they got lucky in that day. If one can keep gambling within limits and not go broke then it can be considered as a past-time and you need to pay for pastime. So the amount you lose may be considered as a payment fees. Then again I believe we can get entertained in other ways as well.

I don't know what to say about your comment on this thread but it is way too far from what OP asked, lol. It looks like you don't have any experience on gambling that is why you don't know what to say or what opinion you are going to give about gambling addiction, but I know that you are addicted to something and that is what you called "passion" or "habit", in that way, you could relate it on gambling addiction.

No, they know they limit but they can't control their minds. They are aware of what they have been doing all of the time but still recognizing that they are starting to become addicted isn't registering to their minds. Like now, we know what we are talking because we are on our minds but for those gamblers that don't have other things to think but only recovering their losses will continue and get addicted.

I think because you can earn money easily thru gambling and some people enjoy the challenge or competition and others just find it fun. Just think of the cons of gambling and the pros of quitting or remember how  bad it feels to lose everytime you want to try it again.  It might help you to quit or lessen your addiction.

Definitely there is nothing bad in life that continues with you forever, every bad thing comes and goes. Like this, profits and losses are part of gambling but the main concept of gambling being harmful is, there is a definite loss for you in the end.

Means, you will be having bad times continuously until you leave it. See all around you and make yourself vigilant and wise for better life.

you always need a job if you are addicted to gambling and don't even have a job you are finished there is no way you can survive for long as gambling is pure luck and having a job enables you to think that if you keep on gambling you are losing this hard earned funds if you have no job you won't find any reason why not to gamble

Different people may have different reason for that but to me i think the main reason can be that gambling look like as one of the most easiest way of  making money. We do not require any knowledge or gambling skill, but  there we totally depend on our luck. In fact in gambling we totally depend on our luck. But i will like to add there no one can be lucky for every time, and therefore we cannot consider gambling as an easy way of making money.
