Is Gambling an Issue?

If you have concerns that you may be developing an unhealthy relationship with gambling, it is important to take the time to reflect on your behavior and assess whether or not it is having a negative impact on your life. Take our self test for gambling addiction to learn more. Consider if your gambling has been impacting any aspect of your physical, emotional, or financial wellbeing. If so, then it is important for you to seek professional assistance in order to get help with managing this issue.

It can manifest itself in the form of risk taking behaviors such as frequent gambling, an inability to stop or control one‘s gambling habits, and excessive spending on gambling activities. It can also include lying about how much money is being spent on gambling and feeling a need to be secretive about it. Other signs of a possible addiction may include neglecting family responsibilities in order to gamble, getting into financial trouble due to excessive gambling debts, borrowing money from friends or family members for more betting activities, and even stealing money in order to sustain the habit. If any of these issues sound familiar then it might be time to seek professional help.

5 Signs of Gambling Addiction:

  1. You are spending more and more money on gambling activities, even if you can‘t afford it
  2.  You feel an uncontrollable urge to gamble, regardless of the consequences or the losses incurred.
  3. You find yourself lying or hiding your gambling habits from friends and family members in order to continue playing without being caught.
  4. You rely heavily on borrowed money to cover gambling debts, or use credit cards instead of cash when playing at casinos or betting sites online so as not to run out of funds too quickly during a gaming session.
  5. Your relationships with loved ones have suffered due to your addiction, whether thats through neglecting them for longer gaming sessions or arguing over finances spent on gambling activities
