  Gambling Addiction  
     
 

Gambling can be defined as playing a game of chance for stakes.

Gambling occurs in many forms, most commonly 4D, TOTO, lotteries, casinos (slot machines, table games), bookmaking (sports and horse racing), card rooms, bingo and the stock market.

Gambling disorder is sometimes referred to as the "hidden illness" because there are no obvious physical signs or symptoms like there are in drug or alcohol use disorder. It devastates not only the gambler but everyone with whom he or she has a significant relationship. It is the inability to resist impulses to gamble, leading to significant personal, family and occupational difficulties.

Signs and Symptoms of Gambling Disorder

  • Preoccupation with gambling
  • Find yourself gambling increasing amounts to achieve the desired effect
  • Unsuccessful attempts to control or cut down on gambling
  • Lose control when you start gambling
  • Feel irritable when you cannot gamble

  • Resort to illegal means to gamble
  • Jeopardised significant relationships, job, educational or occupational opportunities
