Gambling Counselling

For many people, gambling is simply a fun pastime they indulge every now and then with friends. For some people, however, it become an addiction that controls their lives. This is where gambling counselling with Life Resolutions Kingsford may be necessary.

An addiction to gambling – whether it’s at the track, the pokies, or the craps table – has the power to destroy careers, relationships, financial security, and lives. Symptoms and warning signs of a problem can include:

    • You feel the need to lie about your gambling habits (how much you spend, how often you do it, etc.)
    • You have difficulty walking away once you’ve begun gambling
    • Your family and/or friends worry about how much you gamble
    • You feel increasing desperation to win back what you have lost
    • You gamble even when you don’t have the money
