General information about Internet gambling


Online gambling can be defined as the gambling on the Internet with the help of computers. The popularity of the gambling is increasing day by day. A lot of people like to gamble on the Internet, because it is very comfortable.  A person does not need to go anywhere to play gamble and it can be played in your home sitting on the computer. Gambling on the Internet can be fun but it should not be done in excess because it could have some adverse affects on the mind and body. The gambling show the ill effects only when the gambling is done in excess. Internet gambling can become a habit, which is called compulsive Internet gambling.


Compulsive Internet gambling


Compulsive Internet gambling can be defined as an inability to stop gambling on the Internet despite the adverse consequences, which have occurred or can occur. It is a very big problem in United States of America. According to a study approximately 85% of the American adults have gambled in some part of their lives. A large number of compulsive gamblers loose most of their salary in the gambling. Compulsive Internet gambling also affects the family life of the gambler. Divorce rates are also high in the couples in which one or both the spouses are suffering from compulsive gambling disorder.


Effects of Internet gambling on mind


There are severe affects of the Internet gambling on some part of the mind. Many psychological disorders such as anxiety and depression can occur because of the Internet gambling especially at the time of losing. All these adverse effects start coming as soon as the person starts losing in the gambling.  In some recent studies it is seen that most of the gamblers show similar responses to the prospects of winning and losing money, while gambling, with the response to the drugs like cocaine and morphine. The blood flow in the brain is also altered the same way, as it is altered at the time of infusion of the cocaine in the brain. It is at the gamblerís peril, whether he wants to play gambling or not, considering these bad effects of gambling.
