What is a gambling addiction?
Gambling addiction, also known as compulsive gambling or gambling disorder, is a behavioural addiction characterised by an uncontrollable urge to gamble, despite the negative consequences it may have on an individual's finances, relationships, and overall well-being. The person affected by gambling addiction becomes preoccupied with gambling activities and often experiences a constant need to bet money, regardless of the risks or potential losses involved.
Gambling addiction is a progressive disorder, which means it tends to worsen over time if left untreated. As the individual continues to gamble, they may develop a tolerance, requiring them to increase the amounts they bet or engage in more frequent gambling sessions to achieve the same excitement or satisfaction. They may also experience withdrawal symptoms, such as irritability or restlessness, when they attempt to cut back or stop gambling.
Some factors that contribute to the development of gambling addiction include genetic predisposition, environmental influences, and psychological factors, such as stress, depression, or anxiety. Gambling addiction can lead to various negative consequences, including financial ruin, relationship problems, job loss, and mental health issues.
