The Effect of Gambling

 

 

by Jerry "Jet" Whittaker

Dec 1, 2006

 

 

Problems of gambling in brief:

 

For many of us gambling is nothing more than a mere pass time or way to socialize with friends and loved ones. However very few of us may be aware of the fact that gambling ahs a darker side too that gambling ahs a darker side too. Gambling is fun and entertainment in the initial stages. A person may never know that he or she has fallen victim to pathological gambling, a condition which many of us are suffering from. As similar to all other addiction or substance abuse the pathological gambling thrives very well in secrecy. The worst part of it is that it can even possibly lead to a lot of other problems mainly legal problems, financial problems, depression or suicidality. Those who suffer most and have to face the hard realities are the family members and the close friends of a pathological gambler. This problem of gambling is not an easy one to handle. However an honest approach along with the backup support of family and friends can really help in reducing the chances of gambling. 

 

Effects of gambling:

 

The effects of gambling when it becomes an addiction may bring an enormous social, economical and psychological implication to not only the gambler but also to all the individuals in and around him and the society at large. The economic effects of problem and pathological gambling to society are under intense debate as the true economic costs are difficult to sort out. But, most of us may be aware of the fact that on a personal level many problem and pathological gamblers and their families suffer great economic losses due to gambling.  A recent survey held on pathological gamblers has concluded that at least 70-80 percent of pathological gamblers commit crimes, and do not typically have a history of criminal behavior otherwise. This fact will be clearer if we have a look at the comprehensive study of all U.S. counties between 19 77 and 1996 showed that 8 % of all the crime observed in the casino counties in the year 1996 was attributed in the casinos and concluded that aggravated assault, rape, burglary, robbery, larceny, and car theft are higher in counties with casinos.
