Signs of a Gambling Addiction

A gambling addiction can be relatively easy to spot. Here are some signs to look out for:

  • You have constant thoughts about gambling and finding more money to gamble with.
  • You lash out or feel irritated if you can’t gamble when you want to.
  • You neglect to pay necessary bills and use that money for gambling.
  • You hide your gambling habit from others.
  • In order to get the same thrill, you have to gamble with larger and larger amounts of money.
  • You use gambling as a way to distract from depression or anxiety

If any of these signs describe you, the time to seek treatment is now. The sooner you address the addiction, the better. Read licensed therapist Victoria Haag’s article to find out if therapy is right for you.
