Understanding Gambling Addiction
What is gambling addiction?
Gambling addiction, often called compulsive gambling, is a brain disorder that worsens progressively over time. Gambling addiction is a behavioural addiction which induces a powerful urge to gamble despite the consequences, regardless of whether an individual desperately wants to stop. Many gambling addicts, some of whom have shown immense self-discipline and leadership in business, are unable to quit gambling unaided, repeatedly relapsing into old behaviours.
Gambling addiction has been added to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5-TR) as an addictive disorder. Compulsive gambling disorder has been recognised as hijacking the human brain’s reward centre in the same way drugs, alcohol, food, sex, and porn addictions do. For some individuals, gambling will develop into dependency and then addiction.
How is gambling misused?
Gambling is essentially risking something of value for a greater reward, which for most casual gamblers, will have no consequences other than a fleeting sensation of elation usually followed quite rapidly by disappointment. Most occasional gamblers can stop whenever they choose to; some may bet once or twice a year on an important football match or other sporting event. For the majority, it’s a harmless recreational activity indulged in spontaneously but infrequently. However, some ultra-high-net-worth individuals will find themselves misusing gambling. The habit may become entrenched insidiously over a period of time. They may have started gambling to numb or relieve intense stress and anxiety, which can be achieved through the adrenaline rush, which comes as an immediate result of placing a bet, speculating or a ‘near miss’.
A person misusing gambling may start to gamble way more than they’d planned to, hiding this fact from loved ones and close associates. The individual concerned may raise the stakes and engage in riskier behaviours to recapture the same stress arousal or thrill experienced when they first started gambling. If this behaviour continues, it could lead to dependency.
When an individual has developed a dependency/addiction to gambling, obsessive and compulsive thinking about the next “hit” will be all-consuming. Trust and intimacy in a marriage, business associations, and assets may be jeopardised, and hard-earned reputations lost to continue with problem gambling. At Addcounsel, we know how challenging it is to quit gambling and embark on the road to recovery.
