Gambling addiction is defined as an urge to gamble continuously despite negative consequences or a desire to stop. Gambling addiction is often defined by whether harm is experienced by the gambler or others, rather than by the gambler's behavior. Severe gambling addictions may be diagnosed as clinical pathological gambling if the gambler meets certain criteria. Pathological gambling is a common disorder that is associated with both social and family costs. Gambling is one of the most insidious of human vices, as it presents the illusion of easy money yet can quickly lead to financial ruin. The odds are never in your favor whether it is poker, blackjack, or anything else; gambling is a successful industry because the house always wins.
