Is it a gambling problem if you win?

For example, professional pokers players make money from gambling a lot. Would you say that they have a gambling problem? Or is it only a problem if you lose a lot?

  • No professions gamblers are very skilled in what they do , they make their living from gambling so they are very disciplined in what they do , they have to be. One of the simplest questions to ask yourself is are you gambling with money you can't afford to lose?' If you answer yes to that question then it's likely you have a problem and I don't necessarily
    Mean you personally but generally.

  • It's a problem as soon as you get addicted. So of they cannot stop playing, it is most likely a gambling problem even if they make their money with it.

      Then would you say that all addictions are bad?

      No. Well yes. Kind of. It's hard to say but I couldn't think of an addiction that's not bad rn.

  • I have dealt with a gambling addiction and my biggest downfall was the chase! I would lose money, but I would keep spending more money trying to chase after what I had lost!! I lost my job, house, and still have debts... it is a sick addiction!
