8 Reasons Why You Should Stop Sports Betting

What Is Sports Betting?

Sports betting is a form of gambling that entails placing a wager, also known as a bet, on the outcome of a sporting event. The primary intent of sports betting is to win additional money. With the exception of spread betting, 'draw no bet' wagers and a few other examples, a bet will have two possible outcomes.

1) Lying

All gamblers are liars. They can cook up lies to their Parents, bosses and even wives as to avoid questioning on how they spend their money.

2) Emotional depression and anger

People who are core gamblers are often found to be emotionally depressed when they lose a huge sum of money, and they are always angry when they remember the amount of money they have lost and the meaningful things they could have done with their money, they become depressed again.

3) They are never Successful

I have never seen a man who gambles and is Successful in life.

Gamblers are never successful instead the money that they are meant to use to invest into their business.

4) They are always indebted

When they have exhausted the money within their position as a result of loosing massively,they go into borrowing and most times they use their personal belongings as collateral, I have seen where a man staked Rolex Watch to gamble and he lost it at the spot.

5) They resort to stealing 

When no one accepts to lend money again to meet their gambling desires, 

because of the debt they have incurred upon themselves, they resort into stealing stuffs so they can sell and get money to gamble.

6) Deteriorates your physical health

If you have been gambling on a regular basis, your physical health is at stake. People who gamble impulsively start neglecting their health. 

Additionally, the stress of the gambling obsession can even cause stress on your heart, particularly after shocking monetary losses. The emotional fall can in fact have an effect on your physical body in negative ways.

7) Losing friends 

You might be wondering how this habit of yours will make you lose friends. 

Well, if you are in a habit of gambling then it is more likely that if not today maybe later you’ll borrow money from them. Chances are you’ll not be able to pay them in time due to frequent losses. This will really cause strain in your relationship. In addition, your addiction will make you ignore your friends as you will be preoccupied with gambling. You may then even miss social outings and some very important events.

8) It makes you lose your aim and vision in life

When your life is all about just gambling, it then becomes your primary activity. All of your vigor, motivation, energy and inspiration are only gamble related and you tend to lose focus on the main aspects of your life. If you have any special talents or hobbies, it is most likely that these hobbies will not be given priority and you’ll choose to ignore them.
