Are you addicted to trading?

I have never viewed trading as gambling. I make my decisions based on my knowledge and experience, I don't rely on luck to trade.
Very many people consider trading as an alternative to gambling, and a lot has come to forex from there - adrenaline addicts, to whom the bidding process itself is more interesting than the result.

I could never do that and I don't think it is a good idea to do so. In my opinion, there should be as little emotion as possible involved in trading, otherwise the emotion could cloud your judgement.

I never cancelled or rescheduled my plans or even during the week due to trading, I love forex but I never give the maximum time to this business as I am a part time trader and I take forex like a part time work, I am not addicted, I work with forex whenever I feel free.

If trading is considered like gambling I will not do it because I had no money to waste. They improve my learning , I am updated about market. I do demo trading if had doubt I will loose in any move. Trading is a part of my life now but I will not like to loose all the time.

I generally try to create my weekly schedule with trading in mind so I wouldn't have to cancel anything - neither trading nor any other activity that I want or need to do.

I have met a few traders who appeared to be addicted to trading and even though they were not professional traders they tended to make their daily decisions based on their trading and often cancelled or rescheduled planed events during the week due to trading.

I think they did that because they were not profitable and believed that they need to be glued to their screens in order to finally turn around and generate profits on a few trades. They seemed addicted to it which influenced their lives in a negative way. You always read about the positives in trading, but very few mention the negative impacts a lot of people suffer (besides losing your capital).

Any thoughts?

Addiction for forex trading is very bad. Fortunately I am not addicted on forex trading. Forex trading is addictive for people especially for new traders in spite of the way that it is troublesome. Forex trading addicts are lively and depleted; they don't give themselves honest to goodness time off among trades and this attempts to keep them in an endless cycle of over-trading and over-isolating.
