A 22-year-old city student is suffering from anxiety and insomnia after losing Rs 25,000 in internet gambling during an IPL game. In another incident, a 44-year-old businessman who owned a pharmacy lost Rs 50 lakh on an online gambling venture. He is now counting on alcohol to help him forget his setback.

A 40-year-old man who owns a timbre business in Damoh experienced a similar situation and lost 4-6 lakh rupees through both retail and online gambling. Currently, he has a pathological gambling disorder.

Several people in the city seek help from psychiatric and psychological professionals for their addiction to online gambling and gambling disorders. The majority of them are between the ages of 18 and 50, and they primarily gamble online on IPl Cricket.

“In such a circumstance, our initial goal is to identify the root of the issue. Because no two cases have the same origins, we treat them according to each person's unique difficulties, said Dr. Trivedi, who also noted the importance of launching a widespread awareness campaign to prevent online gambling from destroying relationships and escalating criminal activity. He emphasised that parents had to keep a watch on their kids' actions.
