Pathological Gambling

Addiction to gambling or pathological gambling is a form of process addictions. Pathological gamblers become obsessed and preoccupied with the idea of winning a wealth of money by gambling, to the extent of losing control and the ability to stop in spite of the adverse consequences to their social, psychological, spiritual and working lives. The behavior leads to devastating financial losses and debs. Changes in brain function and structures, similar to those observed in substance addicts, have been observed.

The addictive behaviors are: sports and other betting, poker machine gambling, casino gambling, most of which can be acted out via the internet. Late consequences with heavy debts usually affect the whole family.
