What is Gambling?
While its symptoms can be more subtle than some other forms of addiction, gambling addiction can be devastating for the individual suffering from it, and for their friends and family.
“Gambling” does not simply refer to the traditional game sense – it can encompass any scenario in which there is a consideration, a (generally extremely slim) chance of winning, and a prize. Therefore, it is important to watch for signs of addiction and seek help where appropriate.
