    Re: Has Gambling Become A Problem?

    Just wondering how you can go that long without paying your mortgage and not going into forclosure? I have read stories about people going into forclosure after 2 missed payments.

    judyb57 thanks for reminding As we know responsible player is one who considers gambling merely an entertainment and not more than that. if he cross the limit then it become problem

    Exactly right Thammavongsa, you often can see the difference at the clubs here, there will be a group of people out for the night and they all throw in a bit of money and play the one machine and have a wow of a time laughing and whooping when they win something and then you see the lone gambler with the haggard look on their face and even when they have a win of hundreds they barely blink, it is just so very sad to see the contrast.

    I personally see gambling as a source of entertainment. Generally speaking, it has its benefits to people and community—hello, how about those mind strategy games, huh? it’s also a source of tourism, employment and a lot more.

    It is not gambling if you didn't chase what you've lost. Been there, done that! :)

    How to be a responsible gambler if temptation is always there? Self control? Self discipline? Words that are easier said than done. It is avoidable though on the other hand it is all a matter of experience. You messed up big time, you learn from it.

    Please remember that not all gamblers have a problem. We are talking about the ones that know they have a problem and want help.

    I think it is a good thing that these gamblers are aware of their problems because if that is the case then there is no one who can help them but themselves. The only thing that we can offer is support and assure that they have some people around them that they can talk to.

    I totally agree. Is there a way to exclude yourself from online gambling? I mean there is a self exclusion in land based casinos right, how about on online gambling?
