Gambling mostly starts when your having money problems, Casinos online and in bars eat away your money.

Its not fun to lose

When it comes to everyday sport losing can be fun because it is competitive and you played well to finish with a loss , but gambling just isnt the same you lose without competition and when you lose it becomes addictive to win back the money you lost.

low income payers are more vulnerable to gambling just waiting for pure luck to pull them out of the ditch , but as they play they can be stuck for longer and this time without food or water , not being able to pay rent can also leave you without shelter.Most people forget there responsibilities as an adult when it comes to gambling. If you think about it food, water and shelter are the main keys to surviving, although sadly money is a big role and some people don't have the time to work having big family's to look after leaving family's in debt after having a few spins.

Side effects Of Gambling

Physical Violence

Gambling can make you stressed and overwhelmed and it is often carried out to family's in a crisis, Some parents may smack there children in a shopping center if they ask for an item they cannot afford. Over obsessive gamblers in Poker may start abusing other players as there anxiety and stress rises as they lose more and more money.

Money Problems

Gambling can leave you empty handed and can stop you from paying for what you need, for example:
-unsuspected medical issues

Gambling becomes like a chore or a hobby and you may lose all interest in other responsibilities.

Sometimes Your Lucky

Sometimes you are lucky and you may receive an unbelievable payout, but is it worth the risk , is the money your throwing in important. Some people believe this is the only way of having a shot to become a millionaire or buy the special items they really want but are out of there price range, But the question is gambling worth it to win some money, Because losing in gambling takes more then your money but your family's and friends respect and your usual routines.

Thanks for the highlight, Mintsy. One may take a bite of gambling at times, but it can become an addiction. I know of suicides and killings of loved ones. Easy come, easy go is a fact even if one wins - siva

I rarely gamble. I never go overboard. If I gamble it is once a year to the horse races with my wife, that is it.

its is good as an occasional betting like my dad will bet in the melbourne cup , but i dont agree with over obsesive betting. especialy in pubs where you can stress out and walk over to the bar and spend more money
