There are a few signs that may help you understand if someone has a gambling problem.

  • The first sign is if the person is spending more and more time gambling. If they start to miss work or school, or important family events, it may be because they're spending too much time gambling.
  • Another sign is if the person is gambling away more money than they can afford to lose. If they're borrowing money or selling possessions in order to gamble, it's a sign that they have a problem.
  • Finally, if the person is starting to lie about their gambling habits, it's a sign that they're trying to hide something.

If you think someone you know has a gambling problem, the best thing to do is talk to them about it. Help and support are available if they're willing to seek it out.
