Depression and gambling together


Featured Comment

It depends on the mentality of people, personally since I did gambling I even stop smoking so that's good, but it's true that for 95% of people, gambling makes people let go, in misfortune having bad thoughts, making a bad decision and who can not control this ...

Apart from telling them to stop we can do nothing more .. Only they can react, it's sad but it's only a reality ...

 

Pay attention to yourself, your loved ones and your health, and play with fun

gl all :)

when depressed by various problems in real life I actually avoid gambling. because basically there are some people who are unlucky in one problem and he is unlucky with everything he does. and I am that type of person. if I'm in a state of distress, I choose to relax and look for entertainment outside the home, find food or go to the fub to calm down while listening to music and watching women dancing.

I mean - it's better not to gamble if you're feeling depressed, but I'm a no one to tell you and command you what to do or what not to do, just a friendly tip that could save you coins or funds that you might've lost.

You may not only want to tell or want to order what to do when the depression is engulfing a gambler, but what you say must be the way it is. due to the fact that more than 90% of gamblers actually feel loss and destruction when they are depressed and then make a bet.

yes I do feel depressed from gambling very often and it always happens when I lose big amount. But I try to fight this by focusing on something else, never on rebuilding my balance and chasing the loses because that is the worst thing we can do. I do something else , that has completely nothing to do with gambling, and then come back with the new plan.

People will have an issue of depression if they take it to heart even a small matter, remember every problem has an option to be solve and every decision should be comprised before doing it :) dont rush or decide quickly if you know your doing a 50/50 method :) and as for the gambling why would you be depress if you know playing in casino is too risky am I right?

I never really did that. In mine it is just the opposite. Because I get depressed after I play, usually when I lose a lot in betting.

But in both cases it is a delicate situation. The game cannot and should not cause us to. It is no longer just fun and is a short way to addiction and other disorders.
Very careful!

Good luck stakers!

To be clear about this thread, as for me, we do have to take into consideration as to how a person perceive "DEPRESSION" or in other simpler terms could be as to how a person define it. To make this a little bit easier, if I may sound confusing, you just gotta answer a question by yourself and this question is as easy as this. WHen you said about depression, do you mean you are feeling extreme sadness and so you then used depression to describe your feelings? Or Do you say you are depressed because you have been assessed and diagnosed by your doctor to be suffering from such disorder? 

Alright after being able to answer this question, it would now be easier for me to comment on your post. I simply did this because I look at "depression" as something sensitive and requires a more meticulous and careful understanding before dealing with things related to it. 

Most people feel sad or depressed at times. It’s a normal reaction to loss or life's struggles.

But when intense sadness -- including feeling helpless, hopeless, and worthless -- lasts for many days to weeks and keeps you from living your life, it may be something more than sadness. You could have clinical depression -- a treatable medical condition.

How do you know then if you are really depressed or undergoing clinical depressopn? Well, according to researches,  you have depression when you have five or more of these symptoms for at least 2 weeks:

  •  A depressed mood during most of the day, especially in the morning
  • You feel tired or have a lack of energy almost every day.
  • You feel worthless or guilty almost every day.
  • You have a hard time focusing, remembering details, and making decisions.
  • You can’t sleep or you sleep too much almost every day.
  • You have almost no interest or pleasure in many activities nearly every day.
  • You think often about death or suicide (not just a fear of death).
  • You feel restless or slowed down.
  • You’ve lost or gained weight.

Now, with regard to your deperession in relation to your online gambling, If I may suggest not to play when youfeel depressed as it is always better to gamble with a fresh mind state and no feeling of depression or extreme sadness nor should you gamble for the purpose of chasing all the money you have lost on a casino. In simple words, everything should be a fresh start before you gamble. It is a very high probability of being unable to focus on your game play if you are depressed and preoccupied. I hope this helps! Please always stay safe and enjoy 2020 and may it bring you abundance in life and more winnings here at Stake,

 

Cheers;

I feel that depression and gambling do not go well when it happens together at all given that we will tend to make poorer decisions during being in the state of depression and having poor decisions made during gambling is all basically just throwing money away.

We fall in depression in our life for some reasons. Being depressed we take many bad decision. Some people do drink/smoke.

But do you gamble when you feel depressed? I do it sometimes.  I actually try to forget my problem by concentrating on game. 

You say right when we depressed then we not take good decision and mostly we do some mistakes so many time I experienced when I not feel good I not play good game and mostly lose everything

To tell you the truth, we all try to distract ourselves when we're depressed

Will normally as human being where ups and down is a part of our life then when times come up that we felt so down then  we also normally felt depression  and when I got that moment, will definitely I will make any gamble on that time since it's really hard to focus during that time.
