Can anyone actually show us some proof they're making a living gambling? Like some txids to confirm they're profiting? In my opinion, there is no such thing as a professional gambler.
I think you can the stats in profil dude. you can find it in history bet on site. you can see in highroller. many player who have profit on there. i think they a professional gambler.

because gambling is thrilling and fun, it makes everyone interested in playing again

I guess most of us just want the profit and not the fun. Let's be honest in the end we all play for money.
Even when placing bets with less amount, I do care about profit and not so much the 'Fun'

because it's like hobby, and it's fun, also from playing you can win money, that's a good reason to be addicting thing, and you don't need to work hard, or to use your brains alot, just luck

I dont really think that they want to share something like this privacy to any of us here. May be some big winning they would share it but for the detail or proof that they are making a living with this gambling I dont really think so. You can check some of big whale on each site, see their leaderboard with a huge profit I guess that is enough. Professional gambler is mostly apply on poker games because they can really earn a lot from that like thousands or hundred thousands of cash or even more

I wouldn't imagine somewhere making a living just through gambling. With all the uncertainty in the gambling field, you will lose everything and stay poor. I only believe that it can be done as a hobby. If you win, then you are lucky, if you lose, you try next time.

you're right, if it's a hobby, then you will be hard to quit, even though you've forgotten it, you will definitely be interested in returning to play.

Many people see gambling as a game. And I know it is very fun to do. But people are on this time very greedy and that is not good for their money.
They think that you can win some money and that you can be rich with it. But that is not true. You always lose more money than you win money.

That's true, the greedy nature of a person makes him addictive towards gambling, as he wants to multiply his money in quick time, and finally he ends up loosing everything.

Because of the urge of winning again the portion or whole of your lost bitcoins and the urge of winning some more. It is just the cycle of winning and losing.

Gambling is very addicting because its fun to play and also enjoying, some people forget they are playing with money.
Plus you also got the people that want to win their money back because they want to make profit.

Well you need to know that playing with money is very difficult and very frustrating if you lose your money but if you really like to profit keep on playing maybe your lucky this day if you play

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.

Yes sports betting is great if you know what team or who are you gonna bet on or who is leading if you know the player performance, because in other gambling platform there is no need for strategy it is all on your luck, but I think the only way you can lessen your losses is by keeping a safe zone on your money you will bet.

Yes for some reason sportbetting have a really good payout if you can gather good information there but there is still a chance you will lose although you have a good prediction out there but by keep your money on safe zone I dont think there is a good way to increase your money because our wallet is not bank that give you some percentage every month so if you want to get more and fast money, gambling is the only way

Yup that is the only way you could win with sports betting but in other circumstances there will be a chance that the opposing team will win for example just like what happen with the golden state warriors that keep their pace on winning up to 30 plus then lose it one time that end their streak, what if you have bet on that part that they had lost it then it is still gambling you can still lose it.

In other gambling platform I dont really gamble that much I just play it one time if I to play and I usually have a safe zone that I stop betting when I reach it.

gambling is just an entertainment, not a business, for gamblers. of course entertainment has more fun than business, but not more profitable.

gambling can be fun if you win even small amount just to see that joy and excitement when you win off course

Why because this is very easy work to make money here no hard work is there no time limits no stamina waste so only thing is we have to use our brain to betting so it is very addicting.

I will say in these words when someone keep winning or loosing both provoke the player to keep playing to win more if he is winning or to recover as next hand can be winning hand and he will not only recover his losses but also will make some decent amount.this practice of playing repeatedly makes person addicted to gambling.

I think the practicing is not but its the losses that people are repeating, due the point that they can win back there losses but this is just not true of course.

The most people want to win back their losses what will not happen and than keep repeating gambling to win back their money, at the end they will lose everything.

That is good, gambling can be very addicting I also gamble sometimes but not much due to the point that is very addictive and you want to win so bad, I sometimes start to get greedy if I'm honest.
I think you always have to control yourself if you start gambling, just like you said create safe zone, you have to know when you stop otherwise you will keep playing and before you know you have lost a lot of money because of it.
I also think gambling can be addictive due the adrenaline it give you sometimes and also the point that you can win a lot of money quick.

Gambling is so addicting because its easy to gamble and also fast to gain profit, the problem is that people think to easy about digital value and than get in problems if their whole bank account is empty in a few weeks because they got blind because the money they can win.
I think its just the thing you can win a lot of money fast and also that its easy done because you do not think about the consequences plus its enjoying for hours.
