March is National Gambling Addiction Month

Gambling in moderation is socially acceptable.  Many people enjoy gambling, whether it's playing the lottery, betting on a horse, playing a football pool, or playing poker and most people who gamble don't have a problem.  However, some people become addicted and a gambling addiction, if left untreated, can destroy lives.   

Signs of problem gambling include

  • Always thinking about gambling
  • Lying about gambling
  • Spending work or family time gambling
  • Feeling bad after you gamble, but not quitting
  • Gambling with money you need for other things
