A night out in Atlantic City every once in a while can be a whole lot of fun, but for some people, that fun can turn into a nightmare. Gambling addiction can happen to anyone and can be a bigger trap than you think.

People who are addicted to gambling tend to chase their losses and can end up with lots of debt. Whether you bet on sports, gamble at a casino or online, if your gambling becomes a problem, it can strain your relationships, interfere with work, and lead to financial disaster, anxiety and depression. You may even do things you never thought you would, like stealing money to gamble or pay debts.

This can lead to anxiety, depression, and many other issues for the person with the addiction. If you or someone you know is suffering from gambling addiction,  call 1(800) GAMBLER. It may feel like you can’t stop, but with the right help, you can overcome a gambling problem or addiction and regain control of your life.

Here are some signs of a gambling problem.

Chasing Losses



Chasing losses is one of the most destructive habits for a gambling addict. Many people try and win back the money and end up spending more than they have. This ends up being a cycle that can destroy someone’s life. Having temporary access to their money can give them the time they need to get better without going further into debt.

Spending Money They Don’t Have



One of the biggest issues with gambling addicts is that they will gamble away money they can’t afford. Money used for the mortgage, car payments and insurance will instead be gambled away. This is when the addiction becomes very destructive because it disrupts the person’s life and sometimes the life of their family. Get them to a group for addicts or get them a spotter so they can get the help they need.

Anxiety and Depression



Anxiety and depression are big side effects of addiction and can linger even after the addiction is controlled. Make sure that you get them counseling and professional help as soon as possible to get them on the right track.
