Gambling addiction describes behaviour that leads to serious psychological, social and financial problems. Some people use the game to “escape” from the problems and tensions of everyday life – work, family troubles, loneliness, tension, and boredom. However, if a reasonable approach is not applied to the game, this “escape” can lead to the development of a behavioural disorder – gambling addiction.
Any addiction is destructive. Over time it can deepen into a leading behavioural mechanism and as a result, it starts to dictate the interests of the individual and subordinate his whole life, in its final form. When entertainment becomes a compulsive need for gambling and a habit, we talk about a disease that destroys relationships and can lead to financial ruin and personal collapse.
