Gambling Disorder

Gambling is a game of risk and reward where people put their money toward something that will give them the chance of winning more. For most people, gambling is an occasional diversion — something that is fun to do and offers the possibility of making a significant sum of money without having to work for it. Unfortunately for some, gambling comes with an uncontrollable urge to keep risking money despite financial losses and strained relationships. They continue to gamble regardless of the consequences, and like many other forms of addiction, it can take control of your life.

Symptoms of Gambling Disorder

Gambling addiction, also known as gambling disorder, is associated with the production of the feel-good brain chemical, dopamine, in a way that’s similar to other addictions such as drugs or alcohol. Over time, an otherwise harmless game can turn into an unhealthy obsession characterized by a loss of control. The following symptoms are some of the signs and symptoms of gambling addiction:

Risk Factors

There are many people who can gamble responsibly and never become addicted. However, careful evaluation of those who have gambling disorder has shown some common factors.

Personality

People who are highly competitive and don’t like to lose have a higher chance of developing a gambling disorder.

Mental Health Disorder

Gambling disorder has been tied to other forms of psychological conditions such as personality disorders, anxiety, substance abuse, and depression. If you have one of these mental health disorders there’s an increased likelihood that you could develop a gambling disorder.

Social Influence

You may have a greater chance of developing a gambling disorder if you have friends or family members who also have it.

For those addicted to gambling, the consequences may be serious and life-altering. They can include financial problems, poor job performance or loss of a job, relationship issues, social isolation, and even legal troubles. If you suspect that you or someone you know may have a gambling problem, it’s important to seek treatment from a mental health professional.
