That's a part of it's nature in my opinion, The feelings and desire to make more increase it's addiction and make it very hard to avoid once you get used to it.

Maybe yes,, its really the nature of gambling...it motivates us and our desire to play more thinking that the good prize is at the end...going out of gambling site might stop it, might be good if someone we love would tell us to stop..  Smiley

As human beings we are naturally born risk takers, gambling is just a trap that we created to screw ourselves over.

Gambling is so addicting because people like it to do. And they think they will get rich from it. But that is not true.
People see gambling as a game. And they like it. These people are very greedy. And they cant stop. And then they lose a lot of money.

gambling is addicting yes
for me cuz i bet on football only is the excitement of watching game minute after minute
and then when you won you jump from joy and when you lose telling yourself it just a game

You can say this just a game because you just use small bet. How about if you bet a lot and suddenly lose it? I dont think you can say it just a game, because usually people will say this is a cheat or something. You can become addicted to gamble but you need to control it, dont just bet on every single match. Choose a sure win match or high odds with a huge success rate is great

Its true but the people that are gamble addicted are mostly not thinking about the bets  they are doing, or even about the money they have.
They only think about the winning chance and than lose a lot because most of them also use high amount bets.

Yes, that's one reason... if we are tempted to take the bait that was set by a gambler, there's a big chance that we'll also be addicted and screwed too.,.  Smiley

Gambling is always addictive. Some people cant stop gamble. And the smart people can say to themself that they can stop gambling.
But I think the best option is that you must find a hobby or do something fun with your family.

Gambling is addictive because you get a high from winning large sums of money. It is taught in basic Psychology classes that reward = repeated behavior, and that's how people get trapped.

Yes it has the nature of gambling addiction. But keep in mind that in gambling addiction because they played with an ambition to be able to beat the gambling. And if your ambition is already in mind, many ways will arise to win gambling, but the way will not make them prevail but only get a defeat. And I sent it to you already addicted in gambling, if you want to berjud, first watched the game system, and after that make a strategy of what you have observed, because it is the key for you could win big.

that's a nice lesson of psychology, i think it's right, but not enough to explain all case of gambling addiction. ppl still become addict when never win big before.

Yes, right. if you ever win big you will remain addicted, and if you never win big you will be addicted. all really depends on us how to control not to be greedy.

That could not be anymore wrong. I have gambled in the past and I am not addcited to gambling? Some people cannot stop because they do not want to and most probably have addictive personalities and become addicted to almost anything, gambling included.

That usually makes people become bankrupt and out of money, they always win and be drawn into the world of gambling deeper. victory blinded them that gambling could be something interesting and can make money

i agree because i experienced it myself.
when i win i become happy and keep on gambling to win again like an addict.
and when i lose i get mad and keep on gambling to win and negate all those losses like an addict.
that is the mentality.

but it would be worse if you continue to play and just wait for luck. at least you have a strategy and a good knowledge if you bet on sport gambling.

Well, gambling is addicting once you win big and you win consecutively. But once you taste defeat and get nothing out of gambling, you will feel that all of it are wrong and you should've just saved that money instead of depositing it in a gambling site.
