INTRODUCTION TO GAMES OF CHANCE

Natutube friends .

On this occasion, through this article, we are going to focus on gambling , we will explain what problem gambling is and we will see the reasons behind it, its symptoms and possible solutions.

In addition, we will briefly discuss two lifestyles , frugality and consumerism.

We will try at all times to make the content as educational, useful and direct as possible.

Without further ado...

LET'S START!!!


WHEN GAMES OF CHANCE DOMINATE YOUR LIFE

To immerse ourselves and delve into the topic that we will discuss today, it is necessary to first define what problem gambling is.

GAMBLING AS A DISORDER

We can define gambling addiction as a disease or pathology that is characterized by the person who suffers from it feeling a chronic and uncontrollable urge to gamble.

The person who experiences it is unable to resist their own impulses and ends up losing connection with reality, since they will feel the urge at all times to continue betting regardless of the consequences.

CAUSES

Currently, this pathology tends to be considered and treated as an addictive disorder and, as such, in this type of cases and situations the existence of associated dependence, tolerance and withdrawal syndrome is recognized.

  • Family history: Since there may be a genetic predisposition towards this addictive behavior.
  • Lack of communication in the environment : Poorly defined educational patterns regarding the ethical code and values, little or no differentiation between right and wrong.
  • Lack of financial education : Lack of the essential tools and basic to properly handle and manage money.
  • Mood disorders: Among which we can list depression, personality disorder and lack of impulse control.
  • Abuse of harmful substances such as alcohol, ease and access to gambling, relationships immersed in or closely related to the world of gambling, or the lack of alternatives that reinforce and induce the person to improve their habits and quality of life. .

SYMPTOMS OF GAMBLING OF CHANCE

A considerable percentage of people who suffer from this disorder suffer from anxiety, depression and problems with the use of alcohol and narcotic substances.

Among the most frequent symptoms that we can find in people who suffer from this pathology we can find the following:

  • A constant, excessive and recurring preoccupation with gambling.
  • The game itself constitutes a mechanism for evasion from reality and everyday problems.
  • There is an urgent need to increase the frequency and magnitude of bets at all times in order to achieve the desired excitement. For this reason, a person immersed in this pattern of behavior is unable to stop betting.
  • He plays with increasingly larger amounts, even playing with money he does not have and continues playing to try to recover his losses.
  • They lie to family members, healthcare specialists and other people to try to hide or minimize their problem.
  • Carrying out illicit acts or activities in order to finance gambling addiction.

FACING GAMES OF CHANCE

From the team we want to tell you that, if you suffer from this condition or know someone who suffers from it, it is possible to overcome it with the right approach and support.

Below we list some steps that can help in the recovery process:

  • Recognition and acceptance : The first step to overcome a problem is recognition and acceptance of it.
  • Professional support: Seeking help from a person who specializes in this disorder can provide the specific tools and guidance needed to successfully overcome addiction .
  • Barriers to gambling: It is imperative to establish physical and financial barriers to avoid the temptation to gamble and bet. This includes restricting access to gambling sites, limiting access to cash or debit or credit cards, and seeking help from those closest to us.
  • Identify and address the triggers: Identifying the triggers behind this behavior is necessary to be able to carry out strategies that help avoid relapses.
  • Goals and limits: Establishing realistic goals and healthy objectives will allow the problem to be progressively addressed and will help to gradually control the addiction.
  • Support network: Surrounding yourself with people who allow you to implement the recovery and improvement is important .

At this point it is important to note that each person and situation is unique, so the approach to take to treat this condition may vary depending on individual needs.


FRUGALITY AND MODESTY VS CONSUMERISM AND APPEARANCE

In this section we are going to proceed to analyze, very briefly, two lifestyles, two approaches when it comes to facing our lives that have a certain correlation with the previously mentioned topic.

First of all, by mentioning a lifestyle based on frugality and modesty we want to emphasize that we do not want to advocate poverty .

We want to appeal to common sense and the personal freedom that can be experienced by leading a humble lifestyle, based more on experiences and small details than on unbridled materialism.

A frugal lifestyle allows us to value the truly important things in life more, without incurring excessive expenses to finance a lifestyle based on consumerism and appearance .

On the contrary, wanting to present an artificial image of ourselves externally with the aim of feeling self-realized can lead to addictive, destructive behaviors and make us fall into dynamics of superfluous spending.


REMEMBER

If you find yourself in the situation described above or know someone who suffers from it, it is essential to confront the root problem.


IMPORTANT

Our ability to adapt to changes allows us to overcome practically any obstacle and problem in life.
