Do you lose money you can't afford to lose? Does playing poker affect the time you spend with family or doing important life tasks? If so, you have a problem.

Lifetime is not infinite. Our whole life consists of wasting available time. You must clearly understand what and for what you are willing to spend it. Poker or something else - the choice is yours.

That's a very sad existence. Much of the time I spend is not wasted.

Poker addiction, like any other form of addiction, manifests when a person loses control over their participation in the game, experiencing compulsion and continuing despite negative consequences. The responsibility of identifying poker addiction falls on the affected individual and those around them, such as family, friends or mental health professionals. Signs of addiction may include the inability to stop gambling, excessive dedication of time and resources to gambling, and persistence despite negative consequences in personal, financial, and social life. If someone suspects that they have a problem with poker addiction, seeking professional help is essential to address and treat the situation.

In my opinion, you become addicted to poker when you lose more money than you can afford. And you do it more and more often, blaming everything and everyone but yourself. Because of this, your emotional state and relationships with your friends deteriorate.

If you spend more time in spite of other important real life events; if you spend more money than you can afford: then it's a wrong road and you must turn arround.

I haven't played poker for a while, but I'm going to give you some tips to avoid getting addicted to online poker.
As the activity is celebratory, configure your system so as not to let the sound of the tables ring, avoid seeing the images of the players at the tables, this can also make your celebrity get used to it, seek silence, as sounds and images make us addicted.

I've been playing poker for four years and I don't consider this game an addiction. I'm sure I can stop playing at any moment.

Addiction makes it sound as if there is something wrong in playing Poker, If you are in control, then what is wrong if you play once a week, once a month, or several times everyday? I prefer the term Passionate! I used to be Passionate about playing Poker, and during the Lockdowns I would play at least 10 games everyday, and even though I didn't win that much I didn't lose anything either.
Using money I won from freerolls, and buying into Micro stake games. I can honestly say Poker has not cost me a single penny. and that's because after playing for over 20 years On-line, I have still not made a deposit. That's because I manage my bankroll, never losing more than 1% in any single game.
Yes I have had days where I couldn't make the money in a single game I played, but giving it a rest for 24 hours and catching up on some Poker theory, I came back stronger and cashed in many games, I admit losing 10% of your Bankroll in one sitting is a little concerning, but having 90% left, it wasn't Disastrous,
It's all about self Control, and if you can control how much you lose, you can always come back refreshed and win more than you lost.
Passionate about Poker? Definitely, Addicted Never!

When you start playing everyday without thinking in your bankroll, playing higher stacks and loosing everything.

I guess poker becomes an addiction when you can no longer control it. You continue playing even when you lose money or there are bad consequences, such as missing appointments or not doing things which you should be doing.

I play for fun. For me poker is a hobby. I don't try to recover lost money, so for these reasons, I don't think I'm an addict.

Gambling addiction is the result of irresponsible attitude towards one's life, family and finances.

Luckily I'm not addicted. I play regularly when I can, but I don't have symptoms if I miss 1-2 days or even 1 week of games.
Addiction is a very serious thing that only a specialist can help you overcome.
