  • Refrain from gambling while under the influence of alcohol.
  • Avoid gambling when you're feeling upset or distressed.
  • Play with knowledge and understanding of the games you choose.
  • Ensure that gambling doesn't interfere with your daily responsibilities.
  • Balance your gambling activities with other interests and hobbies.
  • Maintain careful track of both time and money spent on gambling.
  • If you suspect a gambling addiction, seek assistance from organizations like BeGambleAware, Gamblers Anonymous, GamCare, and Gam-Anon.

Recognizing Signs of Gambling Addiction

To determine whether your gambling habits are becoming problematic, consider the following questions:

  • Do you skip work or school to indulge in gambling?
  • Is gambling your way to escape life problems, such as boredom or family issues?
  • When you run out of gambling funds, do you feel an urgent need to secure more money to resume gambling immediately?
  • Following losses, do you feel compelled to recover those losses right away?
  • Have you ever lied, stolen, or borrowed money to fund your gambling or settle gambling debts?
  • Have you lied to hide the extent of your gambling-related expenses or the time you spend on it?
  • Do you gamble until you've exhausted your last penny, even if it means having no money for essentials like transportation or food?
  • Have you accumulated debts due to gambling?
  • Have others criticized your gambling behavior?
  • Do you resist spending your gambling funds on anything else?
  • Have you lost interest in family, friends, or other hobbies?
  • Do you prioritize gambling over your loved ones?
  • Do conflicts, disappointments, or frustrations drive you to continue gambling?
  • Has gambling led to depression or suicidal thoughts?

It's essential to recognize these signs and seek help if needed to address potential gambling-related issues.
