“You only have a gambling problem if you lose” ("It’s only a gambling problem if you’re losing")

"It’s only a gambling problem is you’re losing” is a saying that has been printed on many images. “It’s only a gambling problem if you lose...!” was posted on the newsgroup rec.aviation.owning on December 24, 2002. “It’s only a ‘gambling problem’ if you’re losing.....Mike Doyle” was posted on the newsgroup rec.games.pinball on February 10, 2006.

“Gambling is only considered an addiction if you are bad at it,” “Seems like if you’re good at gambling, you’re a professional. If you’re bad, it’s an addiction” and “It’s only a gambling addiction if you keep losing. Otherwise, it’s a high paying career” are related sayings.
