These are my motivation why myself gambling
1. wanna make more money quick /short cut
2. Boredom and want to get excitement.
3. Nothing to do plenty of time to kill
4. Competitiveness mentality measured by what money can do
Thinking that the more money you have you will be more happy

Addiction starts with pain and ends in pain

what do you think about before you Gamble?

most are addicted to something...sex, drugs, smoking, sugar, fast food, coffee, money, attention, sodium...we all have addictive personalities in a sense. Gambling is just highlighted due to the financial ruin that can come about. However each of the aforementioned addictions have devastating consequences financially Spiritually and physically if you analyze with the same microscope

gambling is all over the world

it's not 'malarky'. all human behavior is in some way linked to neurotransmitters.

he seemed to know his stuff. never heard that malarky about the neuro transmitters but can relate to that feeling some days. as well as a run i find sugary snacks can help ur resolve and will power aswell.
Gamble Box
A GambleBox cash drop pocket safe can help - when gamblers use it - they see that sticking some of their winnings in it and leaving the casino is the best way to hold onto money instead of giving into the addictive games and losing it all back - it is like a training coach in their pocket teaching that it pays off to walk out of the casino .
