Gambling is a vice that many of us have it and it is hard to quite once you start it, but from here till ruining or destroying lives it is a load road...or is it not ... ?

Gambling is not good for health both mentally as well as financially. It may lead you to distress and you never know when all your hard earned money disappear suddenly with huge loss, although there is potential that you can make it huge by luck but it has equally that risk also. It is addictive too. So even if someone wins, he is not going to stop, he will play again, get tempted to win more and finally lose all.

So if you have started it, immediately quit that. If you have never started it and looking upon it and planning for it, then never do that, it will ruin your peaceful life. There may be struggle in your life financially, but do not go by gambling route, do hard work, motivate yourself, you will be successful too.

Just make yourself discipline enough and write in a piece of paper that "i will not gamble anymore" and paste it in the wall, so that every moment you will be aware of your promise and discipline. Most of the people are certain to lose sooner or later in gambling. Very few lucky only make money in gambling and that is also short lived if they do not stop gambling. Gambling is not a healthy practice for every class of people. If you are playing with your hard earned money, then I think you may see more severe and pathetic time, when you see yourself giving up with your hard earned money in gambling. Gambling only suits for them who have excess or spare money which they can afford to lose and they do not care about the outcome of gambling. They simple do it for fun. 

 Almost everyone do love their money. After all who does not ? Strategy is good thing but in gambling strategy works less. So gambling is pure luck and you can not measure your luck. So better not to indulge in gambling. Gambling with hard earned money is not fun. You work hard, apply your skill and after a period of time you generate some money and when you gamble with this money, it has the potential to lose spontaneously within minutes. How painful that is ? Just imagine. I am not saying that you will not win. You may win couple of times. But that will make you greedy and addicted and you will lose all including your initial money.

Also your win is loss of some one. So what is the use of such a win which is at the cost of other's happiness. Even though it is within the predefined rules, but morally it is not good. So better believe in your self, do not follow short cut, work hard and earn money. That will be long lasting & useful for your life.

Gambling does not destroy lives. AN INDIVIDUAL’S LACK OF SELF-DISCIPLINE does.

Many can gamble in moderation with no problems.

Thus, it is not the activity itself, but a person’s relationship with it which may become destructive.


There is an incident happened here in the Philippines several months ago where a man was able to killed a lot of people by burning some gambling tables and firing all around and then killed himself in a casino hotel. Base on what I have watched on the news, this man was totally depressed. He lost a lot of money, properties and even lost his family. The main reason is his addiction to gambling. So yes! Gambling can destroy lives..
