Helping Hand/IGC

If you aren’t sure whether you have become addicted to gambling, you might like to start by trying a self-assessment test at Gamblers Anonymous. You can start by answering the following questions:

•    Does gambling interfere with your work or other responsibilities?
•    Are you trying to make up for prior gambling losses?
•    Are you recovering from an addictive disorder?
•    Do you gamble under the influence of alcohol or other influences?
•    If your answer is yes to any one of them, we recommend that you request self-exclusion and seek professional help

And always keep in mind the following when you gamble as a pastime:

•    Gambling is a form of entertainment and is not necessarily a great way to make money.
•    It is certainly not the best way to get rich quickly or to pay off your debts.
•    Gambling is a game of chance and unfortunately – though you can improve your chances – there are no formulas that guarantee that you will win.
•    Never try to chase your losses.
•    Check the amounts of money you spend on a regular basis by setting up and reviewing your gambling account.
•    Make sure you know the rules of the games before you play them for money.
•    Like many things, what is enjoyable in moderation can be disastrous in excess.
