Do you feel guilty for playing stake or gambling online?

Do you feel guilty for playing stake or gambling online<?

I know we are all adults and we make our own decisions, etc. 
But i was wondering if any of you feel at all any guilt or shame for gambling online. If so what are the reasons?

some of the reasons i dont feel proud about the time i spend online stake and other gambling sites is the fact that i have lost so much money, and the time i spend here, it ends up isolating me from the rest of the world and family around me.
I mean if i won every now and then and got to use the money that i earned lol it may have been a different story, but its just loss after loss week after week month after month soon to be another year..

yeah i guess you can say i feel a bit of guilt and shame from all that... 
meh... sad day...

Guilty, absolutely not, this is a place where I feel like home and I really do enjoy having fun even with insufficient funds. It's nice that players are very talkative on the Stake chat platform. I personally feel proud to be here. I enjoy having fun and hosting great giveaways with the community. Although it can be costly since I've got debts, it's a real privilege to have a "grateful" community. It makes me really proud to do more because I know that everyone respects it. I'm sure that in future when my debts are over, I can make even bigger and better giveaways for everyone to enjoy. I have won money and lost money here but I really don't care, it's about having fun and they offer that right here at Stake. The word "sad day" you speak about, I tend to put them on my ignore list, I don't like negativity and although it's not punished by staff, there is a good reason to use ignore.

The only time I feel guilty for playing at Stake or gambling online is when I've spent to much time online. The one other reason I would feel guilty is when I win and dont withdraw. I never spend Money outta pocket to gamble because there are ways to earn bitcoin or money online.

I definitely lose peace when playing here knowing that I could be using the time to pursue hobbies and relationships. Whenever I'm on here I feel like I'm stagnating as a person and  vegetating away because well in online gambling all you do is stare at a screen and click a button. Its kind of a double bind, you want to quit but at the same time you want to chase back all your losses before you quit. But in chasing back your losses you just end up losing more. Its a vicious cycle that I wish I had never entered.

If it's still for fun then yes, nothing to feel guilty about it.. "only loosing what you can afford loosing" should always be one's barometer in gambling. Addiction to gambling is very hard to combat as it triggers certain parts of the gambler's brain, it gives extreme feelings and most things that isn't balance is bad.. :)

I fell guilty now. Cause I never found myself as a winner. Every time I end with bust all. I become anger on me and set my mind not to deposit again. But I fail to stay on my word. I make deposit and loss continuously. Sucks my life. Sometimes I get little profit from my deposit but really finally bust it. So it called rigged life. I can't control myself so I felt the guilty.

Nah I do not have such a feeling while playing on Stake nor gambling online in general. I guess just more to the feelings of frustration when things do indeed go out of hand during a gambling/gaming session.

I feel guilty but only when I gamble like crazy and lose all my money. Most of the times I try to play for fun and also make some profit while I am enjoying the time playing but there are periods when I play just to make profit and I gamble everything I have if I don't get any big win. 

I also don't feel proud about me when i win something and then instead of withdrawing my winnings I play again an then lose it. It happened a lot of times to me and I really don't like that feeling at the end when I have 0 balance, when I could have withdrawn the money and spend it for other things. 

Everyone should assume their actions and understand that you are responsible for you losses and also winnings. So don't feel guilty if you lost everything because it's only your fault and this could have been prevented if you would think before doing something stupid.

Hello, Feeling guilty while gambling could make you sad and lose more and more. Gambling isnt such a bad thing while you can harm only urself (in stake at least). Money can be made anytime so even if you bust you shouldnt feel guilty once you bets comes from your own pocket. So im not feeling guilty at all on any circumstances.

Why would anyone be ashamed of Stake when it's the top gambling site. I know gambling is bad but it's kinda good in a way if you win huge then all that guilty feelings would just vaporise.

I was gambling a little in real life, lost some money.  I think it was a beggining of addiction.. but i am good now.. Started playing on stake.. My girlfriend don't even know or family about that.. I have one friend who knows this.. I lost money with stake.. but i also won some money... i don't exactly know how much. Maybe i feel a little bit guilty sometimes.. but these are our decisions and when we are gambling we have to play smart not to bet more and more money like an addicted..

Você se sente culpado por jogar ou apostar online?

Eu sei que somos todos adultos e tomamos nossas próprias decisões, etc. 
Mas eu queria saber se algum de vocês sente alguma culpa ou vergonha por jogar online. Se sim, quais são as razões?

Algumas das razões pelas quais eu não me sinto orgulhoso sobre o tempo que eu gasto apostas online e outros sites de apostas é o fato de que eu perdi tanto dinheiro, e o tempo que passo aqui, acaba me isolando do resto do mundo e da família. ao meu redor.
Quero dizer, se eu ganhei a cada momento e, em seguida, e começou a usar o dinheiro que eu ganho lol ele pode ter sido uma história diferente, mas apenas a sua perda após a perda de semana após semana, mês após mês que em breve será mais um ano ..

sim, eu acho que você posso dizer que sinto um pouco de culpa e vergonha por tudo isso ... 
meh ... dia triste ...

I do not feel guilty about playing online, it distracts me and calms me down. I found your message and your concern for yourself and your family beautiful.

I thought you have to be 18+ to gamble, which means you should be able to make financial decisions for yourself, whether it's losing or winning money.

As for me, I have my own job + finances so I do budget my gambling very carefully. Sure I feel bad when I lose just like everyone else, but that's gambling and casinos in general. I just make sure to never exceed my max losing amounts. 

As for those who have parents/friends scolding them about gambling... either listen to them and stop coming here (yeah right lol /s) or maybe consider moving out of parents' place (it sure is more independent that way), get a job, and find new friends who accept you for who you are.

No, I never feel guilty playing at Stake or any other website for that matter.  Now if I don't stop when I hit my win target or when I stop having fun I feel stupid or foolish, but never guilty.  Guilt implies I did something immoral and I'm not hurting anyone or anything by playing here.
