Pathological gambling can leave extremely difficult and long-lasting consequences per person!

They can be classified into several groups:

Physical consequences are happening due to frequent, stressful situations. A person which is gambling survives stress when finding gambling assets during gambling, in situations when he loses and wins, and finally, when he/she feels guilty because he/she gambled again. As a consequence of this condition, health problems are starting to appear.

Some examples are:
digestion disorder, headaches, insomnia, mumps, loss of appetite or increased appetite, increased consumption of alcohol and cigarettes or psychoactive substances, migraine, rapid heart rate, cardiovascular disease, skin diseases, dandruff, tics, trembling, increased sweating, and other stress-related illnesses.


Psychic Consequences from the gambling addiction can cause mental disorders, which are manifested by:
weaker concentration, poor memory, difficulty in thinking, frequent and inadequate mood swings, slowness, depression, impulsiveness, reduced motivation and narrowing of interest.

Also, there are also characteristic changes and the establishment of an addictive behavioral pattern characterized by behavior based on the "principle of affection," which is inherent in children, not the "principle of reality" that is inherent to adults.
Characteristics are:
lying, manipulation, selfishness, egocentricity, immaturity, insensibility, irresponsibility, negative attitude towards authorities.
 

In addition to these, other specific personality traits that are specifically connected with of gamblers are appearing:
parasitism, laziness, inability to deal with productive work, grandiosity, and omnipotence develop.

In the group of psychological consequences, the so-called comorbidity is also a rule, and not as an exception. With gambling, other psychological disorders are appearing such as:
nicotinism, alcoholism, drug addiction, anxiety disorders, depression, hyperactive pores, eye and attention deficit.



The social consequences relate to the problems that gambling causes in the social environment of addicts, in several areas of social life:

Professional consequences are first expressed in:
absentia from work, illness, poor quality of work, poor communication with colleagues and intolerance towards superiors if the addict is employed.
If a person is in the process of education, there are:
[color=greenabsences from classes or lectures, pauses in education or his break, worse results and grades, problems with colleagues and professors.
[/color]
Consequences in interpersonal communication - This group includes problems in communicating with people who are reflected in:
increasingly frequent conflict situations, fights, quarrels, criticism of others, glorification of one's own and degrading other people's work.
Communication problems arise: in relation to partners, friends, family members, colleagues, neighbors ... Relations with them become weak and superficial, and communication termination often comes to an end.

The economic consequences are often and most pronounced. Due to frequent losses of large amounts of money, constant loans from family, friends and at the end of taking money from the loaner, the gambler, and his family are beginning to suffer on the financial plan as well. It takes several years for the gambler and his family to recover from these consequences (provided that the person no longer gambles). Unfortunately, there is not a small number of those who never recover from these consequences.

Criminal-legal consequences arise mainly after all sources of money "dry up" from the family to those "from whom they could almost borrow". In order to get money, addicts resort to the commission of crimes and most often robbery -  stealing and robbery.

Family consequences are also included in a group of social consequences, but are, for the sake of importance, separated into a personal group. The problem of gambling is also the problem of the entire family system. Relations within family become worse, more conflicting. Communication among members becomes superficial and insincere and family roles are disturbed. The family begins to isolate itself from the social environment, contacts with friends and relatives are reduced. It will take a long time from the moment when it is learned that one member is an addicted gambler until the moment of this same gambler going to the treatment. During this time, the family is going through a paradoxical process, in which (despite the best intentions for the addicted member), it will contribute to various ways of further developing and pushing the gambler to stay in the addiction phase. All of this is a result of defense mechanisms by family members.

Thus, for example, following mechanisms of defense that are appearing in the wife and mother are:
negation-type - they are convinced that the gambling habits are only temporary - that's the current thinking, according to the principle "it will not happen to me".

minimizing - he/she is not a gambler he is just betting

projection -  society is guilty for everything, they have brought him in this phase

There are also other defense mechanisms but the list is too long to write them all in a single post!

However, by the time the family begins to face this difficult problem which brings consequences which are becoming increasingly apparent and they are trying to help the gambler. There is a range of measures; so-called solution such as:
prayer, conviction, quarreling, threats of divorce and abandonment, tracking and also the movement to another city.

All of these attempts are only temporary solutions, but they also create new problems, which are exacerbating an already unsettling situation. Only at this stage family members are deciding to seek the professional help!

My question is -
______________

Has gambling left a trace on you; if it has which consequences are you experiencing right now?

This would be always the result and the common scenario which do happen into most gamblers.We do all know these things and we are aware on what we are doing but still we do end up on pursuing or continuing no matter what because of our greed for money which would result into thinking into the risk.I do appreciate for categorizing results which are really common either on physical or psychic way.

That is because people are greedy and they are always in false hope as to when they are going to win. They are just within the darkness in the hope of winning something that will compensate the loss. And even if they win, they will take the risk again because they won. So why not play again. Who knows? That is why people need to back off if they lose because losing a bit amount of money is better than losing it all.

You really tried and put on an effort by writing this long thesis about the consequences of gambling, though a simple estimated writing would have made reading it better.
The truth still remains that not every gambler will come across this consequences because some gamblers knows when to gamble at the right time and knows when to stop at the right time. They know how much they are putting in and they know and are very good with their tactics. Those who might encounter these are gamblers who just go into it just because they hard someone made money from it.

You don't get to be specifics here dude. All gamblers really know the consequences of being addicted to gambling. But why they are still getting into it despite the negative effects of it? Simply because they want to enjoy and earn lots of money in the quickest time possible. And no amount of explanation will swayed their mentality.

My question is -
______________

Has gambling left a trace on you; if it has which consequences are you experiencing right now?

I suspect gambling could have positive effects. It could help people manage money better and not give in to impulsive tendencies. There isn't a significant difference between gambling and investing. There is a degree of risk inherent in everything which can't be eliminated. The best we might hope for is to learn to mitigate that risk and that could take practice, which gambling could provide.

I like how gambling allows a person to validate their beliefs in terms of what the end outcome of something will be. That type of self discovery and challenging of one's own preconceptions can be a learning experience. Learning how to cope with defeat and losing also can be a plus in terms of gaining maturity and learning to be level headed and not allow emotions or greed to cloud owns judgement.

All of the above are my aspirations as far as gambling goes. And of course, the intent to make money and profit matters as well.

It has to do with a little bit of one's self to be able to overcome impulse gambling. Some are strong emotionally and so wherever they find themselves in a game they can call it quits whereas some are unprepared and unstable emotionally and these are often the victims of gambling.

Yes, and it is unfortunate that people still continue to gamble despite all their big financial losses and they always have a hope to win ( imagination ), this has become an addiction to many gamblers,  they cannot even control themselves. Furthermore, these problems have become widespread in many of them.

As a matter of fact, all addicts must accept their reality or  truth and even if it was very bad , they must  deal with it by  a proper or correct way,  also they must also control themselves.  . It is true that this is not easy to achieve but they must give a great effort to overcome this problem.

Perhaps there are some gamblers who already know this deep inside, but are in denial. They know that they're on a road that would lead them to nowhere, but go on anyway because they feel hopeless. Sometimes, it's already too late when the gamblers start seeking for help. They've already drowned in debt or their families have already resented them when they start to regret and want to stop.

many consequences of gambling. Many people who gamble eventually become addicted. This happens everywhere. In the United States alone, it is estimated there are millions of people who are addicted to gambling. Not only that poverty will always haunt for those who like to gamble

People who play for making a quick money mostly end up in this situation because these games are meant to give only entertainment if one play within their limits otherwise it gives only pain to gamblers and profit to casino owners. But still, people choose to spend money on these sites because they want a easy and quick money making method so they are ready to risk their hard earned money on these games.

Interesting thread, but for me, it depends from person to person. For me, I just gamble for fun. Win or Lose (Of course winning is waaay more fun) I do it to have fun and I hope that everyone does the same, a lot of people see it as a good return but they start betting with money that they cant afford to lose. For those people they need to stay away since this can become very addicting really fast.

Win or Lose (Of course winning is waaay more fun) I do it to have fun and I hope that everyone does the same, a lot of people see it as a good return but they start betting with money that they cant afford to lose. For those people they need to stay away since this can become very addicting really fast.
Yes, that is mostly what people say that gambling is just for fun, but for me there are still consequences of playing gambling since in the first place that it always involve money as we bet and if the moment we lose then its our instinct to have many last game just to tend on getting back what we have lost, so gambling is prone on addiction and stress and worst if we have no more time for our love one's if we cant truly control it.

Whoa! Such a long article! Well for me, not every gambler do encounter this consequences of gambling. Some gamblers do while others don't. It all depends on people's adaptations and psychological reasoning. Most people don't get addicted easily and are mentally stable to know when to play and when not to play. They are not easily influenced by the tendencies to win more and more. People respond to things in a different way, so don't generalize.

You don't get to be specifics here dude. All gamblers really know the consequences of being addicted to gambling. But why they are still getting into it despite the negative effects of it? Simply because they want to enjoy and earn lots of money in the quickest time possible. And no amount of explanation will swayed their mentality.

Yes all gamblers know the consequences if they continue to gamble even to addiction, but there are so many gamblers who do not seem to care about the consequences. They think that gambling can give fun and quick income.

lying, manipulation, selfishness, egocentricity, immaturity, insensibility, irresponsibility, negative attitude towards authorities.
These stuck out to me, because I see these ugly traits daily in my job with substance abusers--and gambling can go hand in hand with that, though not a lot of the people I see are problem gamblers.  But I think the basic disorder is much the same and produces a lot of the same effects.  When you've got an addiction, your brain adapts and does everything it can to protect the addiction, and part of that is isolating emotionally from people who are going to try to *force* you to get help.  That's usually your loved ones.  So problem gamblers have to do a lot of lying, manipulating, cheating, stealing, and everything else that substance abusers do.  Plus for whatever reason they feel like they're gods in their own heads.

Decent thread, OP.  There are probably at least 200 people who are already members here who should read this.  But just like with the alcoholic, it likely won't help anyway.   When you've had enough, you (and only you) have had enough.  There aren't enough words or love in the world that'll be enough to get you to stop until you're ready.

They think that gambling can give fun and quick income.
I would argue that gambling is fun at first, and it can give you "quick income" but that it morphs into something else entirely after you cross the line into problem gambling.  Even drugs and alcohol start off fun.  If they weren't, there wouldn't be problems with addiction.

There are many consequences and risks in gambling, but they enjoy it all, but already know its impact on the health, life and psychological of a person, 100% will not pay attention to everything, because their habit is very comfortable in position as a gambler has a lot of money to spend, I hope there will be time to stop.

I suspect gambling could have positive effects. It could help people manage money better and not give in to impulsive tendencies. There isn't a significant difference between gambling and investing. There is a degree of risk inherent in everything which can't be eliminated. The best we might hope for is to learn to mitigate that risk and that could take practice, which gambling could provide.

Yes, there is. A huge one. In gambling, the mathematical return of every bet is negative, whereas in investing you have not that mathematical certainty.
I think you example could only be applied to poker. People starting poker from zero and becoming successful develop abilities necessary in investing. But those people don’t call themselves gamblers, they call bad players gamblers.

As for OP, I think problematic gambling behavior is a consequence of previous problems. Nobody sane, with a happy life and without problems, ends up gambling pathologically.
