Famous athletes which suffer from gambling addiction by making bets on own matches

 

Athletes suffer from gambling addiction three times more often than the other people.

Federation of professional players (PPF) in England, conducted an anonymous survey of athletes on gambling and web betting.

Results of the survey, which was attended by 170 players and 176 cricketers were quite unexpected. 6.1% of respondents on the basis of the responses in the survey are classified as “addicted to live betting” – people suffering from gambling.

Sporting Chance Rehabilitation Center, in which were treated players such as Paul Gascoigne and Fernando Ricksen, reported that 70% of patients suffer from betting, and a large number of players took microloans to satisfy their passion.

According to Catherine Jankowski, practical psychologist, psychoanalytically oriented psychotherapist, there is nothing surprising in this fact.

– This phenomenon has two aspects, – said Catherine. – Firstly, athletes – people who have a special relationship with fortune. Passion, courage, desire to be on the top – particularly well developed in athletes who have achieved high results in sport. Impossible to play without courage. It is not surprising that they try their hand in this field. Fortune, luck is a lot of meaning for betting.

– Secondly, they are in the thick of things and have insider information on football clubs, players etc. -. Catherine said. – They are better informed than the average observer or bookmaker. Resist the temptation and not to use the information for winning bet is very difficulT
