Casinos are exciting places to visit. Most of us have seen various gigs in the world of gambling. Las Vegas has become synonymous with casinos and gambling. The sparkling lights, the glamorous atmosphere, the idea of winning a money package, and above all, pure action and excitement, a dream come true for any player.
Unfortunately, this dream can often be the worst nightmare of the player. The adrenaline rush and exciting "high" gamblers experience when they risk their money on games are highly addictive.
Gambling addiction is similar to other addiction. The adrenaline rush and "high" slowly can lead to a seductive, alluring sensation that allows some gamers to take a plunge into the darker side of this fun game. This sink can really have some terrible consequences.
Gambling addiction happens when the player crosses the fine line between playing for entertainment and playing for the "great" feelings associated with gambling. When a player starts playing for "high" the chances are he is an addict. Some gamers are so addicted that they do not even care if they lose as long as they have some of the action.
This unbreakable thirst for some gambling can be very devastating not only for players but also for their families.
Gambling is an example of extremely bad monetary management that can destroy lives and families. Divorce fees, spouses and abuse of children, suicide, homelessness and many other such ills are higher in families with gambling agencies.
For example, let's look at the effects of gambling on children. Children of obsession, often called "casino children", have sometimes been left on the outside edge of the casinos for a couple of hours while their parents are inside. In some cases, some children have been left in the car for several hours, while their parents are busy with gambling. Leaving the children with the babysitter while parents make traffic from the various casinos, cards and bingo rooms are also quite common.
Imagine the effects of this physical and emotional neglect on the minds of young children! Children are often the first goal of abuse either by players or subject-dependent players. This widespread abuse often goes unnoticed because the children suffer silently.
Fortunately there are several places where you can get help. Gamblers Anonymous is a great place where many gamblers have been rehabilitated and lead a clean life, without addiction that once suffered them directly and their families indirectly.
