Too much of anything is bad for you. People who gamble are likely to experience a gambling problem also known as “Ludo mania” which is an irresistible urge to keep gambling even though it’s obvious that the activity is having a negative effect on you. Many people and professionals prefer to call it compulsive gambling because only a few people ever experience real compulsions in the clinical sense that the word implies. The definition of problem gambling is determined by whether the effects are felt by the person only or by other people. People who suffer from a severe gambling problem are diagnosed as clinical pathological gambling; a pathological gambler is considered to have an impulse control disorder and is considered a gambling addict by the American Psychological Association.
There has been a lot of debate as to what is the best way to define problem gambling, and the universal definition based on extensive research is that “it is the inability to limit time or money on gambling which has negative effects on not only the gambler but on other members of society”.
