Reasons Why I Gamble

I am a fan of gambling. I like anything that involves betting a considerable amount of cash onto something. This type of habit that I have supports my desire for a different level of thrill and excitement. I get to feel energized every time I win, and I also feel motivated whenever I lose. But that is just me. I don’t know how gambling affects other people because I understand that every person had different views and opinions on that particular matter.

Source Of Entertainment

Perhaps you will agree with me that gambling seems entirely designed for entertainment. Those flashing lights with all the colorful slot machines, it fits perfectly with the idea of a party themed environment. It pretty much appears to be a place for fun and relaxation. But of course, kids are not allowed in there. Presumably, it is a haven only for adults that are young at hearts. So yeah, part of the reason why I gamble is to entertain myself. As Dr. Chantal Gagnon PhD LMHC explains, “Happy people do things differently. They make their emotional wellbeing a priority and practice daily and weekly habits that help them create joy, happiness and satisfaction in their lives.”

Earn Cash Instantly

Admittedly, my primary reason for gambling is to earn a lot of cash instantly. Seriously, who wouldn’t want that these days? I know so many people who dream of winning a lot of money by betting everything, and I am one of them. You see, gambling, if you are lucky, is all about bringing you tons of cash without sweating so hard for it. Gambling, for me, is all about getting doubled or tripled the amount of money without hard work. That is something.

Challenge Luck

The truth is, a lot of gamblers are mentally oriented, but not all of them are emotionally prepared. Meaning, an avid gambler like me knows when things are turning my way. I understand that there are times where I see no luck at all. But I believe in this particular instinct that somehow tells me to try my luck over and over again. But despite that optimism, I get to feel anxious and scared inside. Like any other hard gamblers, I also think the fear of luck moving away from me from time to time. “As long as we feel like we’re doing average and have basic needs met, such as food and shelter, there is no correlation between money and happiness.” Brad Klontz, PsyD explains.

The Truth About My Habit

“As long as you talk about it, a saver and a spender can figure out how to manage things so they’re both happy,” says Eric Dammann, PhD. Of course I know there are only two results that might happen – winning and losing. When you lose, you just got to try again. When you win, you merely celebrate. But with all the different views of people have, including what’s mine, one thing is sure. Gambling is not a habit. It is an addiction, and I am addicted to it.

Sadly, it seems too late for me to instantly distance myself from the detrimental habit I build up for so long. I was wrong to think that gambling is a form of entertainment. It is not even useful for interactive social growth. There are no long-term benefits to it, to be honest. Not only it does takes so much of my time, money, and energy, it does not also allow me to develop overall emotional and psychological strength. Now it becomes a question of “what I think is right” and “how I see things right.”
