Affects of Gambling

by Jerry "Jet" Whittaker
April 29, 2006

Gambling is a risky activity where people play games of chance for money. Card games, casino games, horse races, betting are some forms of gambling. Gambling is an activity that is purely dependent on oneís luck. Gambling is considered one of the easiest of ways to make money and has been existent in this world for as long as one can remember. Though gambling started as a form of entertainment, gambling today is a serious affair that has been known to either add riches to a person or reduce him to a pauper.

Gambling affects by leading to addiction

Sometimes when a person begins to gamble, he may find himself winning at a few games. Gradually the urge to win and make more money can turn into a compulsive habit and lead to gambling addiction. A person is unable to control his urge to try his luck at winning as many games as possible but one does not remember that one cannot always win. A few initial cases of beginnerís luck where one sees oneself winning money over what one has bet can inspire more gambling and that too with more money.

Gambling affects normal life

There are many gamblers who find other activities of life not worth all the trouble because they do not generate money. This results in gambling houses being continuously occupied with such persons. Their normal life is disturbed as the only thought that is on their minds is to gamble and win. They are not interested in earning money with a job or business. This affects their lives as well as those of their family and friends. Such people may not always win and this could lead them to become unstable financially, mentally as well as socially.

Gambling affects control over money

Wealth is not something one can always be assured of, but wealth can be inherited, earned or saved to make more wealth. This is definitely not the case for gamblers. They prefer to risk money, even by borrowing it from others, and consider luck as the only factor that can bring them more wealth. This affects them financially as they do not have any control over money and are easily among those people in the world who are constantly borrowing from family and friends and who are always carrying the burden of debts and payments.
