Gambling addiction is the inability of a person to control his gambling behavior. The gambling addict continues to gamble despite being well aware of the consequences. It can be termed as a chronic and progressive mental health disorder. There are several reasons for gambling addiction. The feeling of excitement, certain personality problems, gambling as a means to escape from certain problems etc are the chief reasons. Each individual has to be treated differently for the addictive behavior, taking time to analyze and find out the root cause of the problem. Changes in the life style, self help measures, family help and professional help will help to stop the addictive behavior.
