Signs of Problem Gambling

Are you troubled by gambling? Seek help if:

  • you always think about gambling.
  • you gamble with money you need for other things.
  • you keep gambling even though you may feel bad afterward.
  • you get nervous when you try to quit.
  • you need to gamble with increasing amounts of money to get the same buzz.
  • you lose money, but you return to “chase” losses by gambling even more.
  • you spend work, school or family time gambling.
  • you tell lies to hide your gambling.
  • you lose a job, educational opportunity or relationship because of gambling.
  • you find that no matter how hard you try, you can’t stop.
