When do you become addicted to poker? And who counts on it
Addiction to gambling is a consequence of an irresponsible attitude towards one's own life, one's family, and finances. It is also a consequence of a lack of patience, discipline and clear goals and priorities.

If poker affects your financial situation in a significant negative way. Or if you spend time on poker, which you should have spend on work or family instead.

If poker is more important to you than anything else in life then I think you can call it an addiction.

This includes family, work, friends, etc. but the biggest enemy is money and the associated loss of control, which drives many people into gambling addiction.

Gambling addiction is something very complicated for many people because they suffer a lot in life in general and believe that one day they will get out of that situation that is not so easy to get out of.

If you're spending rent, car payment, or any other bill money to play poker then you've got a problem.
I don't think anyone literally depends on you getting addicted. They're not drug dealers just casino/cardroom owners. Plus, there's enough players who are bankrolled to keep the industry floating around for decades to come.
I also think there's enough freerolls out there to keep players playing without the risk of gambling addiction.

addiction is a very dangerous thing so you have to be very careful about it. If you constantly want to play for real money and deposit money into poker, then you'd better refrain from doing it and play free tournaments. If you can't, then you're already a gambler you need to refrain

Addiction is a disease...it is not a choice.
Stop shaming people by telling them its their irresponsible attitude. That's utter tripe.

If you feel that you are addicted to gambling in general, ask for help.

Addiction to poker can develop when playing becomes compulsive and starts interfering with daily life responsibilities and well-being. Signs of poker addiction include preoccupation, loss of control, neglecting responsibilities, financial problems, mood swings, withdrawal symptoms, and denial. If you notice these signs, seeking help from a mental health professional or support group can be beneficial in addressing addiction and regaining control over one's life.

If you play for a long time every day and neglect other day-to-day tasks, if you are spending more than you should and would like, if you think too much just about poker, these are signs that you are not taking the game just for fun.

The feeling of loneliness makes a person play the game for the first time, and the impressions and sensations gained during the game make him return to it again.By visiting a casino, playing online gambling or the lottery, we strive to improve our financial well-being. In fact, not many people managed to get rich this way. Until you understand that gambling addiction is a serious problem, you will remain ignorant and will destroy your psyche and life step by step.To get rid of gambling addiction you need to find powerful motivation. Without strong goals and powerful attitudes, it will be difficult to get rid of the problem. Give your brain a target for action. Think about what you are depriving yourself of by spending time in the game. Set a new goal in life without leaving yourself time to strengthen your addiction.

I'm not addicted, I only play once or twice a week and only in real life. It's more a social thing for me. The tiny amount of profit I make is just a bonus

Everyone chooses their own level of poker addiction. As there is no such thing as poker addiction! People are only addicted to money. :cool: For example, I play exactly that much and only in those tournaments where I have a realistic chance at the prize zone. :unsure:

I have never been addicted to poker, I can calmly be in a poker club, communicate with people on poker topics and about life, and not sit down at the poker table and not play. If a person has a gambling addiction, then it needs to be overcome, and the sooner the better. I know a lot of people who are addicted to poker, and many of them are losing players. They lose more often than they win, they are constantly tilting and at the same time they cannot stop playing. I talked to some of them, told them how to play correctly, they listen to me and still continue to do the same thing they did before. Until a person himself wants to overcome this addiction, it is not possible to help him.

I think people with addictive personalities can become addicted to a lot of things, poker is definitely one of them. If you find you can't control your behavior then it's time to get some help, don't let anyone shame you for trying to help yourself👍

you have to control the addiction to the game, you have to spend time with family and friends.
