What Is Gambling?

For most people, gambling is a social pastime that costs money, like other forms of entertainment.

A person’s involvement with gambling changes, so it’s possible for them to move back and forth on the continuum. For example, a new player might win a big jackpot and then got hooked on the idea that gambling is an easy way to make a quick buck. This might be the case that a person goes from no gambling to have a problematic relationship with gambling.

On the other hand, a recreational player might use gambling as a coping strategy to deal with challenges in life, and if the player doesn't recognize this, then it is possible for the player to rely on gambling as a way to cope.
