Gambling can be fun and thrilling but can lead to addiction and other serious problems. If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, there are steps that can be taken to get help.
Preventing gambling addiction starts with understanding the risks. Gambling can be addictive because it activates the brain’s reward system, which is also activated by other activities essential for survival, such as eating and sex.
However, gambling causes the release of dopamine, a neurotransmitter that helps to regulate mood and pleasure. Dopamine is also involved in other addictive behaviors, such as drug use.
People at risk for gambling addiction may be more likely to develop the problem if they have a family history of addiction, depression, or other mental health disorders.
