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?

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.

.....

Gambling addiction are easier to cure rather than drug addiction
To cure the addiction, they need family support who keep consistent to tell him about the risk of gambling

...
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.
....

Some country are really restrict about gambling and decide to ban any gambling site to protect their civilian
For example : PrimeDice are being banned on Singapore if I'm not mistaken

It's not a disease but gambling can ruin lives. You're not going to physically suffer from a gambling addiction but there is help out there for those who can't control their gambling habits.

No, because it won't kill people just like drugs. At least, not directly. And gambling is easier to stop, not like drug addiction who needs a rehabilitation to stop it.

Indeed gambling addiction is a serious disease because it have so many side effects which can destroy our life, from my point of view it is very dangerous like to have addiction of drug because both have very difficult way to give up.

It's a disease ,but this occurs like addiction in a drug but gambling is also in the state of mind which if it is hyper addiction you will no longer know it's wrong ,cause the only thing that sinks in your mind is how or where you will get a money for you to gamble again even selling of all things that you have .this disease really needs to be brought in a mental physician expert .

Yes gambling addiction is considered a disease and needs help if it's truly impacting your overall life, There are many organizations or help groups for those affected by it "gambling-anonymous".

In my opinion ambling addiction is disease, but it is insanity because addiction of gambling doesn't attacking body gamblers but attacking their mindset, their money and their time.

No no man banning the gambling is a really bad idea.I really enjoy gambling and i am not the one who is addicted to the gambling.And there are many other who are not addicted.So only because of those who are getting addicted to gambling,then banning the gambling for every one is a really bad idea.
Users must are the one who are responsible for it and they should be careful in this.

I dont think that gambling addiction is a disease, as it is curable and one more point is at some point if he lost everything then what will he do nothing. But drug addiction is a disease, as it enters in your body and controls your mind, for that you have to go for rehabilitation centers to get cured. Gambling addiction can be cured if the addicted wanted to leave and his friends and family supports it.

What do you think?

Gambling and  drug addiction is somewhat the same since you are addicted to it  but  the difference in drug  addiction would  definitely destroy your brain and  your  body together  with your life in gambling  it could  possibly  happen also but not as severe  on drug addiction. Gambling addiction is  trully a disease because once you get hooked into gambling  its hard to stay away from it.

You can call it a disease though because it won't leave your body unless you do something to remove it or to cure it. Gambling is very addictive because it involves money which is the thing we need to survive in this world and it becomes really addictive when you start to win and win everyday but not really everyday, because Christmas is not everyday. But I think the most part of it that makes people not to quit gambling is that they want to take back their money that they lose on it. They continuously do it until they get back what they've lose and it's like a do until loop. Do gambling until you win or get back what you've lose to it.

I'm thinking the same about this its not a sickness or something, I even think its just a state of mind on how you are thinking.

For me gambling is considered disease because you cant control yourself anymore and you need help to be able to overcome that addiction. also it can ruin your life and your relationship to your family if you dont pay attention.

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?

well gambling addiction does exist and many are affected by it and are losing all their life savings on it. but i don't think it is anything like drug addiction because drugs will also bring some kind of physical need for it.

also there are some governments that have already banned gambling but that never works. i think it is up to the people themselves to learn how to not get addicted to gambling, and it is not rocket science either.

I accepted that mostly people when they play gambling than they become addictive person, and it is like a disease and in this way they forget that what is gambling and behind the scene it is fun and enjoyable thing but they never taste about it, and only they want to play and they don't care they win or lose, only play again and again. It is a kind of addictive person, but i am lucky and also i am not a good gambler but i like gambling and play it only for fun.

i think it can be said as a disease,its like drug addiction or alcohol addiction, but it can be cure, forbidding gambling is not going to be effective, as we can see there is a lot way to surpass the rules, for example using vpn, so i think the right thing to do is to cure the gambler, this need support and cooperation from family and friends
