In a large number of countries, gambling business was legalized, but only in some of them there is a “self-slip rule” – this is when a player or his relatives are aware of the dependence, and in order not to spoil their lives, they give the owners the right to not let the client in the casino. This rule is valid in the UK, Malta, Georgia and Italy.
In order to overcome the addiction from gambling, you need to learn and apply 2 rules for your life:
- Realize all delusions that use many people dependent people.
- Learn about psychological processes, because of which many people become on the first stage of the game dependency.
Below in this article will be discussed. After reading the results of the analysis of many studies, you will be able to deal with addiction and do not lose your head, if you see how pictures are flashing on slot machines or spin the ball in roulette.
First you need to give an explanation to the term “Ludomania”. It’s when a person wants to play gambling for money. Unzate form – can be slot machines, maps, roulette and other things where you can bet. By itself most players lose, but wishing to play more and more, and old players, even looking at a large number of defeats, believe that this time they must be lucky. Explanation of this behavior already has scientists.
The first thing experts pay attention – all players enjoy risk. Then there is a stage of an escapherism, the so-called “refusal” from the real world and the desire to live in fantasies. In this case, gambling seem to be a pleasant alternative reality. The atmosphere and environment plays a big role – an emotional field is formed, which gives an additional stimulus and encourages various feelings and sensations.
Not so easy to understand the reason is that gambling are represented by something “glamorous” worthy. Advertisers on television, on the Internet and advertising agencies perfectly understand the essence of gambling and know how to sell them to an ordinary person. Therefore, gambling advertising is always distinguished by a unique atmosphere – beautiful girls, expensive cars, big money and other symbols of wealth.
In the cinema, books there are always such an image: a group of people or people spend in a casino or on the hippodrome a whole night in a pleasant atmosphere, at the same time, be sure to wake a large amount. And among the lower and middle class, such a life is perceived as something beautiful and incredible, and they begin to strive for such a lifetime. Although it is worth noting that many operators in the casino are now creating online services that help identify the dependence of players from various gambling.
Another reason for the relationship from gambling is a social factor. Abroad, gambling are part of the local culture, so the game in maps in childhood can easily grow into a serious dependence in adulthood.
How can one be explained by the behavior of people who even with losing large amounts still try to get into the casino? Players who lost large amounts of money in the game, instead of throwing this case, begin to carry more large amounts in the casino with the hope that “this time it’s lucky”.
Now known some more reasons why players continue to play gambling, here are their list:
“Reinforcement” in small doses or a frequent game.
Reinforcement is even more strengthens the player’s behavior manner, reinforcement can be both partial and constant. It is worth noting that it is partial reinforcement that often has a more powerful impact on the player. This is the fact that the player who lost once or spent a whole series of failures, does not pay attention to it and continues to play. All players are waiting for “reinforcement” and it is it motivating them to continue.
Heurishing of what can be available
Large winnings happen, but not so often, therefore, when the target audience of a casino reads somewhere or sees what someone won a large amount, then it spurst their desire to play. Because of this, most players overestimate their capabilities in the hope of victory, because the picture is clearly displayed in their heads, as someone has risen Kush, and they believe that the same can happen with them. Even if the advantage in the game on the side of the casino, players, based on erroneous judgments, think they will be able to defeat.
When the player is mistaken
Players during the game believe that the future events affect the future game, although there is no connection between them, everything is absolutely by chance. Such erroneous thinking is often found in the player’s environment, it was because of him and the name of the term arose. If a player is so mistaken, then there may be a situation when it will put more and more money and lose them, while believe in what a little more and it will definitely win.
Feeling of fear of loss
Most players react much sharper on defeat than victory. In other words, with a loss of 1000 rubles, the reaction will be much stronger than if the player wins this amount. Therefore, when a player invests a lot of money and time in the game, he does not because he hopes to recoup, but in order to drown pain from past defeats. About such a dependence often spoke popular Russian players streamers. Even when the player understands that it will not be able to play the whole amount, he makes bets in the hope that he can return at least part of the tools spent.
Illusory control over the game
In most cases, the winning casino – a phenomenon is random, but dependent players continue not to believe in it. They come up with some strange actions, for example, blow on the bone, before throwing them or perform other rituals with the hope that the outcome of the game can control. People, for the most part, try to invest in the area where events can control, and the illusion that they keep everything under control, makes them play more and more.
Good mood affects the desire to play
Studies that were held quite recently helped to identify patterns when some joyful events, such as the victory of the favorite team or good weather, influenced enhancing dependence on games. It is explained like this: a good mood inclines to take a chance in anything.
Change expectations after rate
The more the person is committed to the case, the stronger his hope for victory. On one racetradition, there were studies: local players were asked to assess the likelihood of the victory of the selected horse until the rate and after, studies have shown that the players evaluate the chances of their whospect to win much higher after the bet than before.
After the maximum victory in the lottery becomes just cosmic, a lot of conversations begins about it, including in the media. And people who read about it or see the news somewhere, join the community that take part in such an important, in their opinion, the process. In such a situation, people who are not particularly interested in gambling will still acquire a couple of tickets.
All gambling are events with a random probability, but many people continue to believe that they will be able to develop some system that will help them in the game. Some begin to calculate the pattern of random numbers falling out, others when choosing automata choose the so-called “cold” – those that have not been given a win for a long time, and therefore, according to players, it will definitely happen soon. Third people come up with various stupid rituals that allegedly help in the game.
All these are stupid delusions, and they need to get rid of them, because things like casino, roulette, cards should be in life for entertainment, and not to destroy their well-being.
