Gambling is taking risk and a chance at winning. There is an unspoken rule when gambling, have fun with it and make more money than you started with. When the fun stops and the magic starts to disappear, this is when gambling becomes a problem. When it begins to negatively interfere with everyday aspects of life this is when people find themselves in a dilemma. Just like any addiction, symptoms can range from mild to severe and gamblers often become very defensive about their behavior.
Identifying a Problem
Victims of gambling are almost always loved ones. The first step is to identify the problem before you try to tackle it. The earlier you can pinpoint the issue, the better chance something can be done about it. Here are a few tell tale signs:
- Lying about the small stuff
- Mood changes
- Borrowing money
- Financial troubles
- Loss of job
- Strained relationships
