For most players, gambling is a form of relaxation and recreation. However, certain players can no longer control their compulsions. They gamble day and night, spend a great deal of money on gambling and gradually develop an addiction to it.
Gambling addiction is linked to multiple factors: financial and/or relationship problems, losing a job or income, feelings of depression, alcohol abuse, loneliness, etc.
If the gambler has family, financial or other problems, games of chance and betting must not be seen as a solution to them.
Don't keep your problem to yourself. Discuss it with members of your family, your friends or your family doctor.
It is important to develop and stick to certain good habits when it comes to gambling. Here are a few tips to be and remain a responsible gambler.
