• Problem gamblers often rationalize their behavior. Blaming others is one way to avoid taking responsibility for their actions, including what is needed to overcome the problem.
  • Problem gambling is any gambling behavior that disrupts your life. If you’re preoccupied with gambling, spending more and more time and money on it, chasing losses, or gambling despite serious consequences, you have a gambling problem.
  • Problem gamblers often resist treatment and are in denial about having a gambling problem; most gambling addicts consent to treatment only after being pressured by family or friends
  • There is no pattern when it comes to gambling. If there were a pattern, everyone would learn it and no one would ever lose.
