I think we cannot call it as a disease, as disease come without the willing of the person, while addiction comes in willing of the person, the person know well that he is losing his money while he remain addicted to gambling and still he do not withdraw from there and spend each of his bit in gambling in the hope that he will be rich with gambling one day.

I guess it is not a disease, but it is a habit that, as a man addicted to cigarettes or drugs. it could have to be stopped, but it was very difficult because it's very unusual he did. maybe it is a kind of dependency, because maybe they always want to play gambling whenever they have money, but I guess it can not be categorized as a disease

I think gambling is more addicted than drugs..  i think we can not say that it is a desease but we can say that it is sickness for people who addicted in gambling that it is hard to remove from people who addicted in gambling..
But there is some treatment about this sickness psychiatrist is one of the doctor can help to give some recommendations..

to ban something does not work. even in prisons are the drugs for example.
think it should be classified as a disease, such as alcoholism, and that there should be support to get.
Call it a disease,  a disorder,  whatever.   It's a very real problem with the reward pathway in the brain.  There's a line you cross, and once you cross it you can't go back.  It's the line past which an alcoholic can't just have one beer again.  And it's the line past which a gambling addict can't safely frequent a casino.

I don't think gambling addiction is considered a disease because if it is, then gambling addicts should have just taken medicines to become no longer addicted to it. Gambling addiction is on your mind, only discipline and control with the help of the people around you can free you from your addiction. People might be able to explain this using science but focusing your addiction into something else might significantly help.

I am not really a gambler but I heard about people who can't quit it and keep losing lots of money. Do you think the attitude to gambling addiction should be the same as to drug addiction?
Should the government forbid gambling and treat somehow those who are addicted?
Or maybe it should be left up to an adult? I mean, should people decide on their own whether they need to gamble or not.
What do you think?
If you have self control it will easy for you leave gambling mostly when your lost big amount it will not good to continue after loosing so much money,

Having self control is the most important thing when you  play gambling since if you lack with this discipline you would definitely easily got hooked on gambling addiction which is really a thing that could be  hard to remove in the long run and  possibly wrecked  your own life if you intend to do it in a long   period of time and for sure many would really got affected,

maybe it is not a disease but a psychological problem that's moving around our mind so we needed self control to cure it free our mind and take time to look for something that will keep us busy.

Addiction to gambling and drugs I think the same. Because a person who is addicted to gambling can do unlawful things such as stealing to get money and used for betting. The government forbids people to gamble because it's one of the reasons because it can be very dangerous and including a prohibited act. Need guidance if about a man already very severe addiction in gambling.

No I do not think you are right about this, gambling is mostly for a short time period addicted and after that stops, with drugs its a whole other story if you are asking me.
Drugs are bad for your health and its also that you need more money for it most of the times.
Gambling addiction does not have to cost a lot but you can be still addicted to it, gambling addiction is also something the most people will have for a short time and than get over it.

It's always different for some people as based on their personal experience and everyone have their own opinions about this, in case of addiction nothing can be worse more than gambling, but I think if we are going with some limit than it should be fine there.

Nah people who just play gamble every day are addicted on gambling website where they gonna make profit or lose their money always there are two type of people the one who played smart and the one who played greedy and there are two benefits of that of course if you play in smart way then you can win profit and if you play greedy you know what the result is.

if addicted to drugs they will get the healing from the government, but gambling addiction will only go to jail, because the government in my country is forbid gambling. Gambling knows no adults, even most adults who gamble are addicted same when it is difficult to recover.

Actually gambling is not bad thing, it is really enjoyable and good thing but only when you never become addictive and play it only for game, But when we lose that point and we want mustly earn from gambling and play it in daily routine life than it become addictive for us. I am saying it because i am gambler but i am not addicted.

This is the same as asking if drinking alcohol is a disease or not. Or if doing anything that can be potentially addictive should be considered a disease. As you should see, this makes absolutely no sense and is a flawed concept. The disease is only a disease if it makes the person's life a mess. Not everyone suffers from gambling addiction.

nothing can do by the government but they can limiting people madness in gambling by set some rules.
people who are gamble and causing something dangerous like a suicide you can call it a disease.
gambling are built for business.
but people make it serious as an income source which it's wrong !

addiction from gambling is same such as drugs addiction because for long term it would have bad affect for your brains and i think some countries already banning gambling because they do not want their society ruin their own life and became an addicted


Addiction of anything make situation worse and when anybody got addicted than he has no way left there, I also than we call it disease when we want to play on gambling at any cost, but for me it's not a disease as I am playing comfortable and know my limit about this.

in fact addiction is a disease, so it must be healed. but it's a different story if you can control yourself and play comfortably for having fun, means you are not gambling addiction.
