Gambling Addiction

In some countries gambling is not only legal but is also promoted. For some individuals, betting and gambling regularly become an addiction which they are unable to stop. They submerge themselves into large amount of debts, ruins personal relations and more.

Gambling addiction—also known as pathological gambling, compulsive gambling or gambling disorder—is an impulse-control disorder.  Problem gambling is any gambling behavior that disrupts your life. If you’re preoccupied with gambling, spending more and more time and money on it, chasing losses, or gambling despite serious consequences in your life, you have a gambling problem. A gambling addiction or problem is often associated with other behavior or mood disorders. Many problem gamblers also suffer with substance abuse issues, unmanaged ADHD, stress, depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder.

Symptoms:

  • A preoccupation with gambling, either by reliving past gambling, planning for future gambling experiences, and/or thinking of ways to secure money to finance gambling.
  • Needing more and more money for gambling in order to achieve the desired level of gambling enjoyment.
  • Repeated unsuccessful attempts to stop or reduce betting behaviors.
  • Becoming uneasy or easily irritated when trying to reduce or stop gambling.
  • Gambling for the purpose of escaping problems or to relieve depression or anxiety.
  • Returning to gambling after losing money in an effort to recoup losses
  • Lying to family or other loved ones, mental-health professionals, or others in an effort to hide the extent of the gambling behavior.
  • Committing crimes (for example, stealing, fraud, or forgery) or securing illegal loans to finance gambling.
  • Risking important relationships, employment, or other opportunities due to gambling.
  • Depending on others for money to resolve dire financial situations that are the result of gambling.

Internet Addiction

The world wide web is easily accessible on fingertips of every individual through smart phones, tablets and laptops. Regrettably, it is challenging to find the difference between a ‘normal’ internet use and internet addiction. The internet is actually a boon to be connected with family and friends but sometimes it interferes with productivity and causes health issues too.

  • Social Media Addiction:

Compulsively posting and checking for post interactions on social media.

  • Video/Internet Gaming or Cyber Addiction:

Having the compulsive desire to play video games alone or online with other gamers to the detriment of your personal life, person hygiene, work/school, and need for sleep.

  • Smartphone Addiction:

Feeling the need to continually check your smart device and being unable to pull yourself away from it. Signs of problematic usage include feeling anxious when it isn’t in your physical possession, experiencing phantom cell phone vibrations, and ignoring loved ones because you are on your device.

Symptoms:

  • Reduced productivity– frequently browsing the internet, email, social media or games decreases work or school time causing productivity to suffer.
  • Decrease in social life– individually addicted to the internet spend lesser time being outdoors and do not interact with friends or family.
  • Time alteration–an individual is so lost in the world of browsing that they do not have any track of the time elapsed.
  • Escapism– another major reason is that users get deeply involved with online communities while trying to escape the reality of life. Moreover their problems are left untreated and they get more involved into the internet world.
  • Depression– Undecided whether depression causes social media addiction or social media addiction cause depression but both scenarios are equally probable.
  • Social anxiety– Being in the online world all the time makes it challenging to face with real time circumstances and can cause anxiety attacks.
  • Back or wrist pain– both can occur with long durations of computer use.
