Problem Gambling Helpline
Gambling can be fun, but not when your life is riding on every bet. When gambling is out of control, the game is no longer about the fun of winning, but about having enough money to keep playing. When you or someone you know reaches this point, itís time to recognize that there is a problem.
Problem gambling does lead to serious consequences. Most problem gamblers lose hope and think there is no escape. Others lose much more, including control of finances, as well as family and friends. Some problem gamblers may even steal or consider taking their own life because of the addiction. Anyone can have a gambling problem.
