Addiction arises from the sudden dopamine surge in circumstantial occurrences in the moment of gambling. What I mean by this is that when someone wins while they're gambling: a lot of people return to gambling because they were able to profit some money, and want to try and win that amount again [or back if they lost it] and thus it creates a habitual system. I believe that the rush of the adrenaline is what keeps people coming back for more. Not necessarily the profit, though that can be one factor.

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.

Sometimes, you don't even have to use your brain; it's based on luck most of the time. I think that people are lured into gambling by "getting rich quick", so they bet and bet more, and when they lose they want to make their money back, so they bet again. In gambling, self control is important.

Let me draw conclusions here the reason gambling so addicting :

- Tempted by "easy money making"
People only see good thing about gambling yeah the winner would getting rich immediately without considering lost chance which it could lead to frustrating on big lost or straight lost.
- After frustrating due having big lost , people want their lost money back and they make another bet again and again until they have nothing to bet ( this is addicting stage)

For slot games may be that is true but for something like poker, blackjack or dice I think brain is needed though because you need to set some strategy that come up will good result but I know it is now guarantee but still it is worth to try. Yeah it is true, you really need self control when you are on gambling or you will bust everything in that instant but sometimes you need to take some risk too to earn big

Well thats because gambling can make you feel great. Everyone loves winning. Some people may win when they first start gambling☺ This is the early win phase, better known as beginner’s luck
that leads into believing to think gambling is profitable

Gambling is so addicting, because they think that you can earn a lot of money. And that is not good.
But you lose always more than you win. And I know that you like it to do. But you must have borders and realize that gambling is very bad.

Well gambling is very addicting because you can win money its as simple as that so that is the point of gambling, you can win money fast but its also a big risk you are taking.
Another reason why people get addicted is because they love the adrenaline.

I tried it for several times but I didn't felt any signs of addiction.
year ago I was in casino with a friend of mine who lost more than 1k$ I was just sitting and watching
I think ill never get back there again just not interested

Well some people are resistent for this virus.
Other people well they can't control their habits and have no realistic sense of life and expectations.
They still believe they can win the jackpot.

Risky business is always better than the oposite, when I say better I mean more fun and potentially more profitable also the contrary can be true

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

Yeah it is some entertainment that can earn you good amount of money if you play well but mostly people didnt get this feeling, all they want to is aim as much profit as possible so they be in a great loss and they dont even feel the fun so they become depressed. It is not profitable for some people because they dont know how to use well their money in gambling. For some professional I think they can easily win a good amount each day

They must stop it and I hope later that more people will stop gambling and understand that gambling is very bad.

actually if you lose it becomes more addicting because you are now worried about recovering that money so you gamble more, and lose more.


My suggestion is if you start losing, then stop for a while and take a holiday from gambling.

Well the thought of winning 0.01btc to more than 1btc makes you addicted to Gambling even though you know that you will lose..
This is so true.
I won over 1.1btc then I lost it. I then put more bitcoin to try recover it back. I won 1.8 btc but then lost it.
I think 1 btc is the magic number when you go down that road of being addicted to gambling  Undecided

I think a lot of adrenaline are more challenging than gambling. of course, other more profitable adrenaline although each has risks of each

because gamblers have an ambition that is too big and they want to conquer the gambling to get money. I do not agree if gambling is guilty, should the guilty are gamblers who wear the ambition to benefit, because if they're wearing the ambitions of all the ways he could use as well as they are too hasty for quick wins

Gambling is not addictive actually, it is the way we play which makes it addictive. I have seen people who hardly play 1-2 hours of roulette and such and never I feel them as addictive, maybe because they have a job and they just spin roulette for fun and intended money.

The prospect of getting loads of money is why gamblers keep on gambling. They want more and more and won't stop before they reach their goal.
In the end you will see the lose against themself instead of the game

Well yes everybody is in for a quick win. They don't see bad points of getting addicted and so they keep on playing.
Until offcourse they got no more money to play.
