What is Responsible Gambling?
“Gambling has become an accepted part of America’s mainstream culture, comparable to leisure activities such as movies, athletic events and the theater. A large majority of Americans who gamble do so recreationally without adverse consequences. However, for some, gambling is no longer entertainment, becoming something they need to do, rather than something they want to do.” ~National Council on Problem Gambling
Possible signs of a gambling problem:
Do you feel the need to be secretive or lie about your gambling?
Do you have trouble controlling your gambling?
Do you gamble even when you don’t have the money?
Are family & friends concerned about your gambling?
