I'm confused and looking for answers

If you are lonely, can you have interest in gambling simply because of your loneliness?

How would you judge someone who says they don't gamble because it's fun, is that a sign of a gambling addiction?

If you are making $600 a day, that's $20000 in a month, and because you are only you start having interest to gamble, what do you think this is?

All these questions is been asked because someone close said all these and I think he are losing money and losing himself too, of all the discussions we had, these are the points I held unto.

Later he open up to have been using $500 for gambling per day, he said all these started when his wife left him, that he isn't into gambling at all, but I can't ask why his wife left him in the first place, but does loneliness make people become addicted to gambling or it's something else.

If you are lonely, can you have interest in gambling simply because of your loneliness?
Loneliness can make someone to gamble more.

How would you judge someone who says they don't gamble because it's fun, is that a sign of a gambling addiction?
Which means they gamble because they want to earn would be what I will think. It can lead to addiction. But I will first asked them the reason they are gambling, not because of fun is not the answer.

All these questions is been asked because someone close said all these and I think he are losing money and losing himself too, of all the discussions we had, these are the points I held unto.
That is a sign of addiction.

Later he open up to have been using $500 for gambling per day, he said all these started when his wife left him, that he isn't into gambling at all, but I can't ask why his wife left him in the first place, but does loneliness make people become addicted to gambling or it's something else.
He can change. The best thing that you can do for him is to look for 10 news about the bad things that happened to addicted gamblers that thought they can make profit from gambling but they are losing. We have some on this forum if you search but there are more online.

He walked the wrong path after he was left by his wife. I don't think that's the right approach to being happy again. Finding another partner could help him and not partnering with gambling. He has the money and I think there are more things than just putting every time and effort into gambling.

I was lonely before but I only drank and smoked for a week and then I got back on my feet after that. I mean, we cannot stay on living bad habits because it will just ruin our lives. There's always an end to loneliness and that is by finding another thing to do that would matter in our lives.
If he is your real friend then you better suggest to him a better choice than he keeps on doing this because at some point he might get sick and he will regret that all that money was wasted in gambling while he cannot pay his hospital bills.
Or you could point him out to organizations who specialize in this kind of problem because this is a serious thing that is happening to him.

Absolutely it can develop such habit.Not only when you are lonely but most of the time when you feel sad from the events of your life like in this case which is a major blow when your wife leaves you no matter that we as men make jokes about our wife in reality it hurts to live without them most of the cases.

Loneliness can only increase the sadness from the events of your life and thus people tend to find relief in alcohol,whores and gambling with this last one being the most dangerous of all together with the first one alcohol.When you go with whores as long as you keep protection nothing bad happens  Grin.

It's the boredom that causes some people to gamble. Loneliness causes many people to get prostitutes.

You probably should tell your friend to stop gambling as distraction from those his feelings he has from his divorce, and start getting prositutes to get those "good feelings" from actual girls who might be better "at their jobs" than his ex-wife. Hahaha.

Prostitutes are cheaper and could be more effective in making himself feel better. Get those high-class prostitutes who I would be sure will be prettier than his wife.

It maybe a factor for people to find some venue to release their stress but it doesn't mean that people will get easily get addicted with gambling while facing this condition. But if they if they realize that they do is just another addition of stress that they are facing then provably they could able to stop on what activities they are doing. But over the months of playing then they enjoyed it since they meet a new set of friends that they think its easy to mingle with then provably this will result to became addicted especially if the new people around them is a compulsive gambler.

If you can do something to the person you know especially if he's close to you maybe try to exert some efforts to guide him and give some good advice so he can control his self not to lose or use $500 a day since this is huge amount of money to spend on gambling in a day.

Yes loneliness can be one of the factor due to which a gambler may become addicted to gambling. A person who is alone has no one with him to talk about , or to spend the time and therefore he will try to engage himself with something which is available to him easily and the only thing that comes into the mind is gambling.

Since there is no one available to him for counselling or for any advice and he will continue to gamble all day long or all time when he is alone and therefore he can easily become addicted.

How would you judge someone who says they don't gamble because it's fun, is that a sign of a gambling addiction?

I am not a psychologist, but when you feel lonely gambling doesn't sound like the best activity for you in my opinion. Especially online gambling is something we all do alone at home from our PC or on our mobile phone. It's not really something we do as a group with friends and there is no real human interaction. When you feel lonely don't you want to talk to somebody? Maybe have a dinner with a colleague, or go for a walk with a friend? There are so many better things to do when you feel lonely than staying at home alone and gamble online. I am not sure if there is a connection between gambling addiction and loneliness, but I wouldn't think so. Addictions are pretty common with substances like alcohol, drugs and cigarettes, all these things usually people consume in a group with others and not alone. That is why I wouldn't expect that loneliness alone leads to addictions. You must have been interested in gambling before, it shouldn't come out of nowhere just because you are alone and unhappy. It would be better to try and fix our life first and not look at gambling to fix our problems.

Which means he has two problem:

The first problem is that he is addicted to gambling already and he needs to just quit. A friend that knows about how bad gambling addiction is can help. But if not helpful, going for rehabilitation would be helpful. But his friend can let him know that stopping the addiction comes from inside of the gamblers mind which is the first thing to do.

The second is that he really needs a girlfriend if he tries to settle things with this wife but his wife not accepting anymore. There are better women out there.

I'm confused and looking for answers

If you are lonely, can you have interest in gambling simply because of your loneliness?
This is for me depending on how you will be lured to gamble, sometimes friends are luring us and making it the
way for us to be a gambler and yes we are vulnerable when we are lonely so the chance of becoming more
aggressive gambler is there.
Quote
How would you judge someone who says they don't gamble because it's fun, is that a sign of a gambling addiction?
wait what? is there someone says they don't gamble for fun? meaning they completely gamble to become rich?
then that seems to be stupid Idea
Quote
If you are making $600 a day, that's $20000 in a month, and because you are only you start having interest to gamble, what do you think this is?
600 a day and 20k a month , how does it happened? and please clear this part.

Quote
All these questions is been asked because someone close said all these and I think he are losing money and losing himself too, of all the discussions we had, these are the points I held unto.

Later he open up to have been using $500 for gambling per day, he said all these started when his wife left him, that he isn't into gambling at all, but I can't ask why his wife left him in the first place, but does loneliness make people become addicted to gambling or it's something else.
He must be very rich  , can spend 500 dollars per day? he is not a normal employee .

When someone is feeling down or lonely, they might look for things that make them happy. Loneliness can make some people turn to gambling. Gambling can be a temporary way to forget about feeling alone or sad. Even if someone is alone in a casino, the fun and the feeling of being around others might attract them. If someone is upset or doesn't have much support from others, they might turn to gambling to feel better, and that could lead to addiction. So I won't advice one to turn to gambling in times like this.just find something else to do with your time or someone else to spend time with.

Something caught my attention here, he start gambling after losing his wife? Am I the only one seeing that part? I think this person is blaming himself for losing the woman, he resulted into gambling as a gateway to forget her it seems, but maybe he just can't, people who lost their loved ones also have some ideas, like they can't move on and they start locking themselves inside the house all day.

I think this person needs to get the hell out of the house, and do something else, the family should help, take him out of the house or someone should stay with him and keep him company, honestly it's not the end of the world if you lose a woman, do you even know how many better women are out there? I know their numbers is limited because the world isn't normal anymore but good women still exists.

He should seek help, if you know any relative of his I think you should let them know, for someone who don't care anymore about themselves and keep doing stupid things shows they have gone reckless.

For even saying that he isn't gambling for fun doesn't mean he is gambling to make money, it could be what my mind is telling me, make it all or lose it all in gambling is common with people who are hurt, they choose to risk everything and lose everything, right in between and whatever happens they don't care, that person needs attention fast.

You cannot heal from pain by venturing into gambling,  you will loose so much that you might be depressed. His wife leaving him has had a great effect on his mental health , his focus should be how to get his mental health back and not to complicate things. It is urgent for him to seek the services of a therapist.

 Gambling requires a stable mind as much as it requires luck.  Financial decision making is something that should be made with a clear and undistracted mind. Hope he bounces back soon and become the best ge can be.

How would you judge someone who says they don't gamble because it's fun, is that a sign of a gambling addiction?
People gamble for different reasons which include fun and money and in most cases because of both. Not gambling for fun is not a sign of addiction because there are still other genuine reasons to gamble. Many responsible gamblers gamble because of money and they are just okay. Gambling addiction is when your betting activities become uncontrollable. The moment you cannot control the drive or motivation to gamble, that's a sign of gambling disorder.
Quote
Later he open up to have been using $500 for gambling per day, he said all these started when his wife left him, that he isn't into gambling at all, but I can't ask why his wife left him in the first place, but does loneliness make people become addicted to gambling or it's something else.
People try to seek different escape routes when they are lonely. They begin the seek activities that would keep them company. Hard drugs, alcohol, video games, and even pornography addition can be an offshoot of loneliness.

Your friend is in deep trouble in the sense that he will soon become indebted. If he spends $500 of his daily income $600 on gambling, how will he survive? He would end up not being able to pay his bills and begin to seek credit or loans. He needs to be counseled and if possible let him seek professional guidance.

Loneliness can definitely bring one to an addiction. Whether or not that is a gambling addiction or food addiction, drug addiction or even an alcohol addiction (although one might suppose that is also considered a drug addiction). Remember what addiction is: A malfunction of brain chemicals which give you the feeling of happiness and reward. If there is something wrong with your dopamine receptors or the levels of dopamine, then it can lead to addiction as a symptom.

The best thing to do is go cold turkey until your brain chemicals rebalance itself back to normal. That can take months or even years, depending on the severity and time of your addiction.

Loneliness is what makes you crave for more dopamine. And your brain thinks that, if you gamble, all your dopamine needs will be met. But that is just your brain lying to you. You should know better.

Your friend is not into gambling because of loneliness, he is into it out of frustration of his wife leaving him. He needed something that would make him calm and forget the pain he felt inside but unfortunately, he learned to choose the wrong path that would lead to his destruction(that's gambling).

What your friend need of is therapy, not a gambling habit. Advise him to seek the help of a therapist to help him overcome the sadness of his wife leaving him, not to find gambling to be a remedy to his broken heart

If you are lonely, can you have interest in gambling simply because of your loneliness?

I don’t know if it’s applicable to everyone but one thing is for certain; whenever someone is lonely, depressed or idle they become extremely prone to some thoughts or ideas that can lead to some detrimental results… So in your friend’s case it might be the that when he was lonely he thought of ways to have fun and escape his loneliness and gambling comes into his mind.

Quote
How would you judge someone who says they don't gamble because it's fun, is that a sign of a gambling addiction?

Generally no, they are some people who only gamble when they are 100% certain that their gamble will enter (most especially sport betting) so you can’t possibly categorize such people as those gambling for fun and yet it will be difficult for them to addicted to gambling.

Quote
All these questions is been asked because someone close said all these and I think he are losing money and losing himself too, of all the discussions we had, these are the points I held unto.

Later he open up to have been using $500 for gambling per day, he said all these started when his wife left him, that he isn't into gambling at all, but I can't ask why his wife left him in the first place, but does loneliness make people become addicted to gambling or it's something else.

Sorry to say this but your friend is addicted to gambling; it most likely because of what the separation between him and his wife did to him so he resorted to gambling to try to escape his reality. I’d advise that you stick closer to him because if he should be able to get over his addiction he would need extra help from those that are close to him.

~Snip
but does loneliness make people become addicted to gambling or it's something else.
Personally, I also gamble just for entertainment, but "it doesn't mean I'm lonely or feeling broken", but gambling is just a routine when I've finished my work and am free. However, maybe for some people, in my personal opinion too, there are definitely those who vent their feelings of loneliness in their lives or when their lives are in chaos by gambling. Because it is certain that people who are experiencing loneliness in their lives need entertainment so that their feeling of loneliness is reduced a little. So it's normal if your friend chooses to gamble when they are experiencing problems in their life. Because at a gambling place he will definitely meet lots of friends who can at least entertain him (offline gambling). However, there are still pluses and minuses. Because for example, when your friend's feelings are broken and your friend decides to gamble. The biggest fear is when your friend cannot control himself well and in the end your friend could experience big losses in gambling.

So in my personal opinion, when hurt or confused. It's better to calm down first and not take it out on other things, including gambling. Because when someone's feelings are in turmoil, that person certainly doesn't care about profits or losses. Therefore, gambling is not the right thing to use as an outlet when your heart and feelings are broken. Because I personally think gambling should be played by people who have good feelings and a calm soul. Because I personally think gambling should be played by people who have good feelings and a calm soul. Because if gambling is played by someone who is experiencing depression, it is feared that when that person wakes up from his depression, he will be even worse because after he realizes, he has spent his money.

Yes, many people went to gamble because they're lonely or bored, they don't know what they need to do, so they're choose to gamble.

This is why when you read a guide or suggestion to stop gamble, some people will ask you to find more activity aka keep you busy everyday.

His wife left him obviously because she know someone will never change, she deserve to find a better man.

I'm confused and looking for answers

If you are lonely, can you have interest in gambling simply because of your loneliness?

How would you judge someone who says they don't gamble because it's fun, is that a sign of a gambling addiction?

If you are making $600 a day, that's $20000 in a month, and because you are only you start having interest to gamble, what do you think this is?

$600 a day? That is huge amount of money already, so I don't know what else should a individual be doing better with that kind of money. If I'm making $20,000 a month, I wouldn't think of gambling to enjoy my money.

All these questions is been asked because someone close said all these and I think he are losing money and losing himself too, of all the discussions we had, these are the points I held unto.

He needs to get ahold of himself, otherwise, he could lose all his hard earn money from gambling.

Later he open up to have been using $500 for gambling per day, he said all these started when his wife left him, that he isn't into gambling at all, but I can't ask why his wife left him in the first place, but does loneliness make people become addicted to gambling or it's something else.

There are other forms to cope with loneliness, others become alcoholic, others become gambling addicts. So it's really hard to deal with this kind of situation. But I do hope if ever he can reach to someone for professional help so that he won't be fall on and become a gambling addict and lose any direction on his life.
