Do you think gambling has mental health effects?

Recommended Posts

As for I know, people who usually gamble like the feeling of winning and not just because of the money that is earned, and we all know gambling is pretty addictive. What are your reasons for gambling?

Reasons?

Honestly, at first it was just for fun. But when i tend to win and able to cash it out, I wanna win more. And I'm pretty sure that's an addiction that we called for. Now, I play for profits and for fun. But most of the time it isn't fun because I keep on losing and losing. 😅

of course. It greatly affect someone's brain. Sometimes it can make people become violent, anxious, depress, bipolar or hyper. there are also instances that you become or you have urges that are uncontrollable. Gambling can make you want more despite of the toll.

Gambling means that you're willing to risk something you value in the hope of getting something of even greater value. Which its like drug or alcohol that promised you to escape the cruel reality for a moment. This means that gambling stimulates your brain and thus has great effect on your mental health. 

The moment you want to chase you loses means you already have mental issues with regards to gambling.

Most definitely. I think this is more prominent in players who are using gambling as a means to escape from their problems or ones who are already downhill in life. Gambling can take a toll on individuals who live a healthy lifestyle, Let alone ones who already have issues coming into it. I think this is something that should definitely be considered before jumping into the rabbit hole, but it’s difficult to with all of the flashing lights associated with gambling.

Yes, it really does have a big impact especially in me. I let gambling get the best of me and it got in the middle of day to day activities in which messed up life in general.

I made bad decisions and gambling is one of my worst decisions. It has impacted my mental health, I've even went to therapy, to be honest that didn't help...

That sounds very serious that you have to go to therapy for it, I guess this should be a wake up call for me to do gambling moderately.

If you let the game control you, you already let the sickness fill up your body and start making bets that you would regret and at the end all that busts will start changing your attitude in your personal life and one way or another will slowly turn into a mental healt

I am also like this and I am very guilty about splurging into gambling lately, it is only fun when I win on a continuous basis but sometimes I just do not know how to control myself and would usually end up losing all of my cryptocurrency.

Yea gambling can have serious mental health problems as that's why there are many health professionals specifically deal with gambling addict's and problems related to them.

Sometimes people lose track of their money and can become obsessed with gambling so it's when they need to seek help otherwise someone life can ruined without help.

And my reason for gambling is just to have some fun while watching my favorite team playing in sports or sometime test different strategies with dice.

When I started to play newly, there was time when  I crossed few limits but with time I made rule for me, how much to gamble and when to stop so everything stay in balance.

Grats epic hope you stay always green and keep enjoying this awesome feeling we get when we win a nice bet in sports or the dices

i think you dont need to ruin your life for understand that you need help we all have differents points to feel we hit the bottom, for myself i just bust a big depo (didnt ruin my life but i could really give a very good use to that money that now i dont have) so that was my bottom i hit hard i make me understand that if im going to invest my money on a random thing i must ensure ill play the best of myself and dont gamble just because is fun and i feel fine doind it, instead of considering the risk of busting your cash

the reason I gamble is of course to win and get profit, but it is very difficult to win from gambling and it is the toughest challenge. and I will always try to win. but I'm here now not just to gamble, sometimes I come here just to chat and chat with other friends

gambling does have its own negative influence on the devotees. it's just not always related to the mentality of a gambler. maybe the bad effects really affect the mentality of a gambler, it could be his emotional level increases, irritability and so on. but that did not happen to me.

I am just here for fun. Nothing else. Lockdown is very boring and trying to test my luck on turning a penny to $50 is always an enticing feat I would like to repeat if there are unlimited chances of doing it. ☺️

Yes.  I believe it depends on the individual. When you put all you have including your psychological being that is when will begin to have health effects on that individual.

maybe for you lockdown is what disturbs your mentality, not gambling. because from what you mentioned above, you just have fun in primedice and make money without time limit, no lockdown.
I hope you can make money and have fun, friend :)

If you are addicted to gambling I am sure that it has negative affect on your mental health. If you gamble just to have some din and doesn't gamble more than you can afford to lose, then I think that gambling han actually have a positive effect on your mental health. It's very easy to get addicted to gambling, so what starts out as fun, with positive effect on your mental health, han easily end as an addiction with negative effect on your mental health, so be careful.

When gambling makes you continue to think, then it has become a very dangerous mental issue.

An issue that might take a psychologist to correct. I actually gamble for fun, but when it is getting out of way, I leave it and move on. Last week I was on a great streak, this week, i decided to leave it a little and move on a little bit and I have been great this week.

Always know when to stop and when to withdraw. With that you can safe guard your mental health.

It can affects your mental health since winning or losing is depends on how will you accept it..when you winning s you will think on whether you will stop or gonna stop playing.but the eagerness and greediness cannot avoid yo win more..even you don't want to play ND withdraw allin the end  you will depo back again until you loss all your wins.

pretty good rating.
So what if those who have fun with the bets they make still experience mental health? because according to what I know, even though the brands are just having fun with the bets they make, mental stress will definitely occur when losing. be it those who are addicted to gambling or not

  • Hello! The game can help in mental health and can also harm, it will depend on each player, so everything in life is a learning opportunity, in the game you can get to know yourself better, so if you lost a lot you try to do it differently, and don't commit anymore the same mistakes, with that you will feel better. The reasons for playing can be as many as: Personal and financial growth, fun, knowing your limits and much more.
  • Good luck and good profits!😉
