I started playing when I was a student. At first, these were such “columns” where you throw five-dollar coins and expect that this coin will be multiplied many times for you. Then I became interested in roulette with my friends. These were mechanical roulettes; the game process took place without a dealer. This roulette was very addictive, at first there were several big wins. Then, of course, the game was in the red. I thought of strategies on how to beat this damn roulette, calculated the odds, but it was all to no avail. And then came the moment of gaming machines - “monkeys”, “fruits”, “pirates”, etc. It lasted 5-6 years, until the moment when gambling was banned throughout the country in 2009. For me, it was a solid black streak in life. All feelings went into the game. In ordinary life, I was a complete zero. Although I had a higher education, my job was the lowest paid. Didn't have a family either. I don't want to say that all players are losers. There are also those who play, but at the same time work in a good place, they have friends, close people. But, it seems to me, there are fewer such people than those who, because of the game, are generally bad. In my head, I understood that it was impossible to be in the black in the game with slot machines. These establishments made money for their owners, not for the players. But something inside was constantly drawn to the game. As soon as money appeared, you immediately go to the game room. After the games were banned, he breathed a sigh of relief. And although the Internet is full of casinos, it is no longer pulling. I got sick.”

Thanks, that's all it is. I also want to add that if they wanted to completely ban casinos, poker rooms, they would easily do it. So, for some reason, all this is necessary.

Don't be so naive. There are many things in our world that should have been done a long time ago, but which will never be done.

Gambling is well researched. There are existing methods of rehabilitation. Most often, the problem lies precisely in the inability to seek help. The gamer himself, due to his illness, is not able to make the right decision and take care of his future. Only loving relatives, friends and loved ones are able to lend a helping hand and turn to professionals.

Yah, this is true I been relate on this scenario, it seem as a good hobby but not all when you realize you can't control yourself. I really like to play for entertainment and for fun. I play baccarat most of the time because for me it is an easy game.

I really like to play online casino games with my friends and family. I do this in my free time. I really enjoy playing online casino games. Most of the time I play baccarat tournaments, and I limit myself all the time......I only enter the game for 30 dollars, and I can win twice as much as I pay. You just need to balance playing online casino games or any casino games. Just for less guilt, just play for fun. I hope you will be fine.

I would like to share about my opinion. The factors make people want to play in a casino? Players who are excitement gambling seekers are playing for the stimulation. Their primary motivation is the strong sensations they experience while playing, the positive memories from winning moments and the thrill of winning or losing, so that it can lead to addiction. A sure sign of gambling addiction is when the behavior causes a person to lose a job, a relationship, an educational opportunity, or something else significant to them. Lying to other people to conceal the time and money spent on gambling is another clear sign of addiction.
