Understanding Compulsive Gambling

Understanding Gambling AddictionOften people who develop a problem with gambling also experience other issues in their lives. These other issues contribute to putting them 'at risk' for developing problems like addiction to drugs or alcohol.

Knowing why gambling became a problem is generally not the starting point in treating this particular disorder. Gambling addiction has many causes that do not necessarily lead to addiction in every body. What is critical in treating gambling problem is one's desire to change the behavior.

Generally the point of time that gambling behavior becomes gambling addiction is not something that many can identify. It is a progressive event that turns into addiction over time. One might find that in order to effectively address the gambling problem he or she needs to talk about other events or issues surrounding it.

Those who are addicted to gambling will experience:

  • An urge to gamble
  • Loss of control over their gambling addiction

Gambling Addiction is largely considered a progressive condition, characterized by a strong need to gamble despite undeniable problems associated with gambling. Gambling Addiction is a serious health issue, potentially leading to self-destructive behaviors, including problems relating to loved ones and chronic health problems. Families and friends are often adversely affected by the self-destructive behaviors of an affected family member.
