Guys juat wondering about your thoughts if gambling or being a gambler can be inherited?? What do u think?? Coz my dad is a gambler,, i become a gambler too,, i have younger brother but hes not a gambler and the youngest brother of ours is sometimes a gambler,,lol!! Heres what i think,, i think ita not,, i think what really happen is that sknce im thw oldest son and happen to witness my dad when hes gambling i just copy what hes doing,, maybe i just thought when i was young that gambling gives easy money,, and aince im young i never thought that it was bad,, same goes to my youngeat brother,, he sees me betting ...but didnt happen to my younger brother coz hes too busy in school during those time...hahaha..hope my english is ok coz im not so good,, just want to share my experience and thought about gamblers...

I don't think so. gambling is not just a hobby, not a characteristic. so in my opinion the nature of gambling is not hereditary.
if there is one who follows the previous traits, it is only a thought pattern that follows, not because of the inherited nature.

I guess it is because of genes from our parents or from our ancestors which we get from our parents can't say maybe it is from the genes where there is addiction.

I seem to be the only one in my family that enjoys gambling, although it is definitely more of a hobby than anything else. I would rather sit in a casino with my friends and gamble than spend money at a bar just listening to music, even tho i lose alot of money and get mad alot of the times, but oh well addiction got me already

i like this post you made kate =D it reminds me of the "multigenerational transmission process" which says essentially what you did. however, the multigenerational transmission process from bowinian family therapists orientation can in fact skip a generation or two

Interesting title that catches the eye. Although what I really think its more of the growing addiction that keeps pulling one towards gambling most of the time.

it probably skip a generation knowing my grandmother loved to gamble.. even though it bingo or head to the nearest casino or vegas.. hitting those slots machine.. all my aunts and uncles dont gamble... but me i gamble.. so yea it did skip a generation.. but was she addicted to gambling no.. it made her happy.. anything that makes you happy cannot be bad for you..

no haha. Its not like a physical addiction that one can be genetically predisposed to. It is simply a game, a game that is serious and meant for responsible adults because it deals with real money. Which enables it to be a game that can bless and curse people. But thats the whole thrill of it. 

This is why children should not be allowed to gamble. You dont want something like that to be practiced by sensitive, vulnerable, and undeveloped minds that can be affected by the slightest influence in their surroundings.

Addiction can be hereditary but gambling is just one mode of addiction instead of a trait. Gambling expresses the same highs that risk takers get when participating in extreme sports. It's just when people experience the high doing one activity, if they are susceptible to addiction they just tend to go back to the last known activity that they were doing

I agree with some comments around this post.  Like they are saying, something in your blood has to be there so you can enjoy all that has something to do with gambling.  First is that you like the "activity", then comes what is around like pressure, adrenaline, acknowledge of bet statistics, and so on.  About me, well, I use to be a sales representative and my boss was a pro gambler, he was my teacher.  In every country we visited as sales team we always were looking for casinos.  Mostly I play black jack in tables with no more than 5 gamblers.  You learn to be a gambler, but you have to have the bug in your blood.  Good luck.

I think that most people enjoy gambling .  If your addicted however that may be in your blood from addictive personal traits that are passed down.  But who really knows lol.

Lol, Gambling doesn't have to do with blood or inheritance. My grandfather is not a gambler, I have never see my father gamble, but I gamble frequently, My younger brother also gamble. Gambler just depends on the kind of person you are and how you want to live your life. It is not about what others think or do, but what you want to do. Gambling is personal.

Just like any other hobby, I believe Gambling draws some people and of course repels some.

Gambling attracts an diverse crowd with promise of rewards just by playing games.

Combined with the luck factor which makes sessions full of adrenaline and turns gamblers on edge, it’s not a surprise it’s easy for people to get hooked to it - hence its bad rep. 

😋

I believe at the end of it, we have a choice to make it either a bad or enjoyable experience - it’s up to us!
