There are no levels in this game.
There is no one point that you reach when a timer goes off and says, “You’ve now reached your gambling limit and it may be starting to become a problem.” It is something that those around you can help you figure out a way through. When gambling starts to take over it can lose its shine and start to hurt in different ways.
Questions to ask yourself:
- Do you think about gambling every day?
- Do you hide your gambling from loved ones?
- Do you ever borrow money to gamble?
- Do you let bills go unpaid?
- Is gambling affecting your role as a parent?
- Do you think you can use skill to win on a pokie machine?
- Do you gamble to forget your problems?
If you answered yes to any of these questions,you may be experiencing an issue with gambling.
Experiencing problems with gambling is different for everyone and there is no one right answer to finding help; there are many.
Getting help means you can start to take back control of your life. All the things you ‘spend’ while gambling – your time, relationships, money – become yours again. Think about how much better off you could be.
If you or someone you care about is experiencing problems with gambling, there are many ways to get help.
