Question: Do you gamble to get distracted from your life?
Yes, that is probably true
My life is perfect and gambling is just a part of it
My life is terrible, but I don't think this is why I gamble
I just have a lot of free time and I don't know how else to spend it
I am not really a gambler

Yesterday I watched a video about addiction on youtube: https://youtu.be/ao8L-0nSYzg. It was a real surprise to me that according to recent research people are addicted to drugs mainly because they can't bond well with people and are not able to live a satisfying life. The research shows that when an addicted person appears in a loving and caring environment, the addiction kind of disappears (even heroin addiction). I wonder what are your thoughts on this matter and whether you think you could say the same about gambling addiction.

That's true healthy people gamble on their free time and excess money, only those people who do not have a genuine relationship will spend countless hours and pour his savings because he finds relationships in the cards and dice he is holding more than the people around him.

Healthy people? I think you meant rich people. Does that mean even poor people gamble despite their need for money? Don't get me wrong though, I know that there are poor people that gamble but I don't think they do that often since they can't even find something to eat. Also, I find this relationship reasonable since most of the gamblers I know is not just addicted to gambling, they are also addicted to alcohol and some of them are a womanizer.

You know what, I believe it is one of the factor. Because whenever I visit some casinos, I often see old people playing slot machines. I am thinking to myself if they are really consistent to play that thing until they win or perhaps they just really killing their time on it. I guess their motive has that both but the factor of loneliness is more likely.
maybe loneliness can be factor when someone have friends, he wouldn't spend time in Casino. Because if we have friends to spend time, we can do other things that can make us enjoy this life.
I also think that loneliness is a key factor for gambling. Good relationships, spending a good time with friends can substitute a desire of gambling. But I don't think that periodic gambling would be something bad.
Well, it is depend on what that gambling affect to that person. If it is cause bad things, so it is bad. But if it is give that people feel to cover that loneliness, so it can be good for that person. Back to depends on what that person aim in gambling.

I'd not say loneliness and dissatisfaction are the cause of gambling addiction, but surely they would promote it. When there's no one to talk to you or ask where are your money going or care for you, you'll be gambling irresponsibly. If there's some one you love wants you to spend your money on better things than gambling, you'll at least feel guilty Everytime you gamble.

This fact cannot be denied that if a person is alone or dissatisfied with his life, he will find ways to involve his life in some activity and gambling can be one of that activity. Gambling addiction does not happen to a normal person, it only happens if anyone is alone in his life or if he is not satisfied with his income and want to gain more money from gambling.

It is quiet disgusting to see a person that keeps on gambling while his family suffer hunger at their house.  It is a some king of irresponsible person he is. 
As we know that gambling can't be consisder as a source of income,  If have some extra money left then, it maybe we can used it for gamble but prioritizing our gambling life will be a big problem and it just an addiction.

Not really, if you have free time and have the ability to make something happen in gambling, you should start gambling. It is not that you are depressed and are having a bad time and would enter into the gambling world for killing time. I think that you have to be very wise and calm minded to win at gambling. It is not just gambling for the sake of gambling but also for the sake of winning.

If we don't have responsibility for our life, then we cannot take care of what we have, and we might lose everything in life. The loneliness and dissatisfaction can attract someone who does not care about other people, and if he goes to gambling, then he can be an addiction because he will not think other people around him. He will focus on gambling, no matter if he wins or loses.
