The game is not bad, it becomes a bad thing when it turns into addiction. The person who suffers from gambling addiction is incapable of resisting the temptation to play high sums of money. In an attempt to recover the lost money, the subject will be forced in a continuous run, to play increasingly higher sums, in order to cancel the loss or series of losses and to make up at all costs. He compromises personal, family and work activities and if the money is not sufficient, the person uses not-social attitudes (eg. theft, fraud or other). Close the game rooms is not sufficient, today it is easy to play, the bet runs mainly on the net and you can do from home. The only way is to try to quit. If willpower is not enough, you can resort to psychologists, doctors or even self-help groups such as Gamblers Anonymous, where every experience is shared in public at its weekly meeting.
