Ludomania as a dependency on online gambling

One of the most dangerous addictions is gambling, which is put on the same level as drug and alcohol abuse. And all this is due to the fact that addicts harm not only themselves but also put others at risk.

Ludomania is a pathological addiction to gambling, which leads to personal, social and professional insolvency of the player. The most frequent causes of this addiction to online gaming is loneliness, a sense of dissatisfaction, the desire to easily get rich or other addictions.

Japanese scientists have proved that very often people suffer from gambling who do not have enough dopamine hormone (the hormone “happiness”) in their bodies. This hormone is secreted during winning and causes addiction over time.
