Compulsive and problem gambling is a problem that, left unattended, can ruin the life of any gambler and those close to the gambler. Like other addictions such as alcohol, smoking, or drugs, gambling addiction is a psychological disorder that impairs a person’s ability to make good decisions. Often, gambling can cause a person to lose their grip on reality, leading them to do things and spend amounts of money that would normally seem outrageous.Especially in today’s day and age when gambling over the internet is so popular, there are many people who have a problem with it.
