I'm kind of surprised this hasn't happened sooner. It combines internet addiction with gambling, both of which alone are pretty toxic. Will you be booking yourselves in?

The UK government is working on reducing single bet limits on slot machines in casinos. They can do no such thing with cryptocurrencies. De-addiction may be their only bet.  Grin

Cryptos is really like drugs and creating serious addiction. Trading with stress every day can cause serious psychological problems after a while. I think there will be a lot of people applying to these centers.

Whoops. I noticed it picked up on Twitter today. First time I've seen it mentioned. Presumably they must have a fairly healthy clientele by now.

That fixed odds betting was a disgrace and it's one of the few constructive things the government has done recently. It's interesting how rarely the addiction angle is mentioned with crypto. It must be pretty prevalent.

You are right. Cryoto can be very addictive as much as substance abuse. The craze even worsens during the times of massive dump. People get wild and a lot of stuff goes on in mind. It's good such centres are around

Nah, I wouldn't check myself on those addiction centres, but thanks though. I have full control of emotions although its really addictive most of the time but their no secret here. You just have to say 'No" and control yourself, specially crypto trading.

And its much better to control our crypto trading addiction. Just don't like at the price that often and I'm sure that you will be fine. But gambling addiction? Thanks lots of efforts and control and you need your family for support.

But its nice to hear that there are centres around to help people cope with their addictions but I'm not going to be one of their clientele.

And those were the final words he typed before his family threw a sack over his head and posted him there. Let us know how it went when you're back in a few months, that's if you're allowed on the internet again.
