Inside the Brain of a Gambling Addict

Gambling Addiction

View this interesting and revealing look into the mind of gambling addicts from BBC News.

I’ve personally struggled with gambling addiction in the past. I eventually learned to gamble like a normal person with a reasonable budget, but I know how difficult it can actually be. I still struggle with my personal gambling addiction when I visit the casino sometimes. I just love to play blackjack way too much and I have an addictive personality. For me personally its better to play free social games instead. Just as fun and much friendlier on your bank account.

Learning to play responsibly just for fun and entertainment is so much more enjoyable than trying to gamble for hours or days with the illusion of making huge piles of money. It has taken me quite some time to realize this but I’m so much better off having come to this point than never having lived at all.

    Fascinating stuff.
    Always believed that the psychological effects of winning and losing are very much the same which is why gamblers enjoy playing so much and find it hard to stop when consumed by it.
    Didn’t realise until now that the anticipation of the result and the result itself were similar.
