Hello guys today i will be talking on addiction.addiction can be caused by many things.not only drugs that can cause addiction to our bodies. i will be talking about gambling addiction and how it can be treated and of course the signs that will help you know that you are addicted or you are getting addicted
For the most part, gambling in moderation is a socially acceptable behavior. Gambling addiction is another story. If left untreated, a gambling addiction can negatively affect your financial situation, relationships, and other aspects of your life.
According to the National Council on Problem Gambling, problem gambling affects more than 2 percent of Americans. If you have a gambling addiction, you may feel an uncontrollable urge to buy lottery tickets, visit casinos, play slot machines, bet on sports, or gamble online. The specific type and frequency of your gambling behavior may vary. But in general, you will be unable to control that behavior. You will continue gambling, even in the face of negative social, financial, or legal consequences.
The majority of people with gambling addictions are men. But this type of addiction can also affect women.
People with addictions often try to hide their condition, but a gambling addiction can be difficult to conceal. You may need frequent access to casinos or online gambling pools. Even if you gamble at home when no one is around, your addiction may begin to show itself in other areas of your life.
If you have a gambling addiction, you may display some or all of the following behaviors:
- obsessing over any type of gambling
- gambling to feel better about life
- failing to control your gambling
- avoiding work or other commitments to gamble
- neglecting bills and expenses and using the money for gambling
- selling possessions to gamble
- stealing money to gamble
- lying about your gambling habit
- feeling guilty after a gambling session
- taking bigger and bigger risks while gambling
You may also experience the following consequences from your gambling addiction:
- disintegrating relationships or friendships
- loss of house, job, car, or other personal possessions
People with gambling addiction don’t always gamble frequently. But when they do start gambling, they may be unable to stop.
