In your opinion, is gambling a good or bad thing? (gambling = to do something with a risk of loss or a chance of profit) hope this definition helps. Let the discussion begin!

I think earning money at point of risk is not gud. Either u will lose or u win, ther's no guarantee of that. If u will lose, u will lose everything in it. N if u win then u become addicted. This addiction will spoil u. So i suggest no shortcuts for Earning money.

yes but u must note that many business also require risks...many sucessful business men such as say, bill gates also took risks...they didnt exactly know their products would become famous...they took a risk, a gamble so well depends on how u see it

The greater the risk, the greater rewards you reap. We have always been told to take risks since we were mere children. Risk other jobs to get the job you want... Things like that. In fact, risks are almost taken every day. Still, there is always a downside. The odds are usually, if not always, 50-50. Of course, you should always consider the odds before taking a risk... For example, betting on a lottery ticket. The chances of getting first prize is lower than the chances of getting struck by lightning. But did you know that the chances of getting 27 heads in a row in flipping coins is lower than the chances of striking the lottery? Well, I personally think it's okay to gamble. Just not over the top. When it's time to call it quits, then do so.
