Gambling can lead people to reckless actions that may have adverse consequences, both for the player and for the people who worry about him.
Often these actions happen before a person has thought about them, and that is why they are so difficult to control. Our goal is to help those who have noticed that they are not always in control of their actions and want to correct them. That’s why we’ve compiled the best organizations to help gambling addicts in the Appeal for Help tab.
If your family member or close friend has fallen victim to uncontrollable behaviors, be sure that you will help them and not alienate them. Explore Gam-Anon’s recommendations – gamanon.org.uk.
