1. What to Consider

Gambling should be regarded as a leisure activity. A responsible gambler is someone that stays in control, does not see gambling as a job - but as entertainment or a leisure activity. It is important to understand that gambling should be done with money set aside for the purposes of leisure and not essential financial savings for the future. It is a good practice to always set aside a specified time or spending limit to prevent chasing losses. Another good practice is to frequently take breaks from gambling to prevent gambling from becoming an addiction.

2. Problem Gambling

Most individuals that develop gambling addictions frequently fantasize over getting that big break, or hitting the mega jackpot that makes all their losses magically vanish. It is important to not jeopardize personal relationships, financial savings as well as personal health in trying to achieve something that may never come to fruition. If you have a gambling problem, please seek professional assistance from a counsellor.
