In brief: See DSM

Essentially, when instead of the pleasure it becomes problematic.
The person is preoccupied with the habit; spends more and more time gambling; when is not gambling, is irritable, unhappy; using of gambling instead of other responsibilities; the gambler is chasing his losses; there is no control over the habit; the consequences – legal and financial from gambling, etc. I treat is with "extinction.
