Problem Gambling with Michael Burke

A documentary about gambling addiction...

The mind and psyche of the roulette player and gamblers in general, as well as the allure of gambling, are subjects very dear to my heart, and I try to approach them in various ways and from different angles. Gambling can be an extremely refreshing, rewarding, thought provoking, exiting and intense experience. Unfortunately though, it can also become a self-destructive obsession.

Gambling addiction, also known as compulsive gambling, is considered a type of impulse-control disorder. Like most other emotional conditions, it is understood to be the result of a combination of biological vulnerabilities, ways of thinking and social parameters. The worst way to ponder such serious issues is to pretend you know anything (or everything) about it. None can truly understand or feel exactly what the problematic gambler experiences. And not all compulsive gamblers are the same - every human being is unique.
