First we have to know what is addiction. It is a big issue in present era and most of people are suffering from it. An addiction is nothing but only a psychological craze or dependence towards anything specially any activity. Addiction occurs when someone fails his or her control and continuously by any mean that activity is making some harmful effect to him or her. Accordingly it can take place in anything like drugs, alcohols, food, and sex and when it comes to gambling field; it becomes really a serious issue among the gamblers.
Unlike any other type of addiction this addiction is hard to identify. But generally it is seen when a person experiences win in several gambling and accordingly feels that they cant control their deep impulses to gamble and they can make a nice deal and gain more and more money through that type of activity without facing any trouble, that mainly play role in making addiction towards gambling field. Gambling addiction makes the gambler so impulsive that they can’t give any single thought to be involved again in this activity and in the winning stage the gamblers become so excited with their earnings that they don’t want to quit gambling by any mean. With that they feel their increasing intensity to gambling field. Even sometimes it is found that they are deterred by recurrent losses as they think that they can win again and get their money back. The addicted gamblers forget to think although it is a form of harmless entertainment and fun yet that can become a devastating illness too and can affect them negatively. It can lead the players very badly to big financial problems (when they start to borrow huge amount of money), mental restlessness, relationship stress and many other activities related to their lives.
Thus a recreational sport gambling turns out to be a denting experience to any gambler when he gets addicted to this betting field. Like winning phase and losing (as discussed above) there is also desperation stage which can lead a gambler to get addicted horribly. Keeping hope in mind that they can earn more and more through this betting process and eliminate their losses which they may even face on every alternative day of their playing they become mentally fatigued. Unmanageable state of their increasing debts makes them desperate to face gambling every day. Desperately the gamblers are found engaging in illegal activities to finance their gambling. They may suffer badly by hopelessness, suicidal thoughts, even arrest, divorce and any other drug exploitation. That surely leads to a complete breakdown of an addicted gambler.
Although gambling addiction cannot be identified so easily, there are some signs which can denote that addiction a little bit. That includes constant discussion about gambling, making gambling plan, gambling at any odd time, getting into a long debt circle, giving priority to only gambling not even to personal life and responsibilities and feeing the need to gamble to wipe off any practical issue or stress. It is only a concept but deliberately the sign of addiction is not confined among such behaviors only. There may be many other signs which assign gambling addiction.
If you feel you might be addicted to gambling hypnosis can be a great way to remove this type of addiction:
When the compulsion to gamble comes upon you, it makes you forget the reality of how you'll feel when you've lost (and wasted so much time into the bargain!). This is a temporary illusion.
Through hypnosis you can easily break free of the temporary pull of the gambling illusion – giving the control back to you. You will know you've outgrown the pull of gambling addiction when it no longer feels like something you want to do – like wondering what an earth you saw in someone you were once attracted to who just treated you badly.
But above everything for successful results in this treatment firstly it is required that you have to admit that you are facing restlessness with such type of activity and are feeling to give it up as soon as possible, unless and until the recovery process will not go make any further step.
Playing the Online Poker High Stakes
The history of how the poker game came about is very hard to pinpoint. Historians have long debated about the origins of the game. Although, fragments of cards that is tentatively dated to be from the 12th to 13th century were found in Egypt. Others propose that modern cards were from the Indian card game "Ganjifa."
The history of poker can be further narrowed down to several possible origins and along the way, it becomes difficult as trying to pull a royal straight flush.
In the Americas, the history of poker is more documented. Based from document records, the poker game journeyed from the New Orleans in a steamboat and up to the Ohio and Mississippi rivers.
The poker game eventually spread via train and wagon. Changes in the game like stud poker, the straight, and the draw, became famous, specially during the Civil War.
The European face of poker, however, ended when the joker card was introduced in the game as a wild card in the year 1875. Also, in 1910, the state of Nevada declared betting games a felony and illegal before the law.
The state of California legitimized the draw poker because the draw poker was said to be based on the skill level of the player and the anti-gambling laws implemented during that time have no power against it. The Attorney General of California, however, declared the stud poker as illegal because the game is based on chance.
With this decision, the draw poker games developed and spread out across the nation. By 1931, the state of Nevada reversed its earlier decision and legalized casino gambling.
Despite all the different kinds of theories on the real origin of the poker game, one truth reveals itself, the poker game is a game that has endured the ravages of time and adapted to each and every generation that plays it.
Every one of the creative people who managed to do a variation of the poker game subconsciously adds another piece of history to the old and interesting history of poker.
