“Gambling is only considered an addiction if you are bad at it,” “You only have a gambling problem if you lose” and “Seems like if you’re good at gambling, you’re a professional. If you’re bad, it’s an addiction” are related sayings.

First, “a gambling problem,” sounds alot like saying the word “addiction,” so as I have said before, this post has nothing to do with gambling problems or addictions.  All it has to do with is LOSING money while gambling.  Whether someone has a gambling addiction and wins all the time but has no other life is another issue.
