Gambling Addiction

Gambling addiction is understood to be one of many kinds of impulse-control problems a person may suffer from. Responsible gamblers know when to stop and so it becomes a problem when you continue to gamble despite negative consequences. Some of the signs that compulsive gamblers have in common include:

 

  • Obsessive or compulsive thinking about gambling
  • Inability to stop or reduce gambling
  • Frequent changes of mood and sudden outbursts of anger
  • Denial of a gambling problem or lying to friends or family about behaviour
  • Neglecting personal responsibilities
  • Disappears for long, unexplained periods of time
  • Ignores self-care, work, school or family tasks
  • Needing to gamble to improve your mood, escape problems, win back losses
  • Breaking the law in order to get gambling money or recover gambling losses
  • Stopping doing things he or she previously enjoyed
  • Changes in patterns of sleep, eating, or sex
  • Has conflicts over money with other people
