How do I know if I play too much?
Gambling problems can manifest themselves in many ways and have different effects on your life. Below are a few questions to help you identify whether you have a gambling problem or not, or if you are running a risk of getting a gambling problem.
The answer alternatives and points are the following:
How often during the last twelve month:
- Have you played for more than you can afford?
- Have you needed to play for larger amounts to get the same feeling of excitement?
- Have you returned another day to try to win back the money you have lost?
- Have you borrowed money or sold anything to get money to play with?
- Have you had a problem because of your gambling?
- Has gambling caused you any health problems, including stress and anxiety?
- Have anyone criticised your gambling?
- Has gambling caused you any financial problems for you or for your household?
- Have you felt guilt about gambling or for what happens when you you gamble?
Calculate your points and see what category you fall under:
Are you worried about that someone close to you is gambling too much?
If the person starts to lend money more often without being able to pay back or have problems paying the bills, even with a good income, gambling too much could be one of the reasons.
Money isn’t always a problem when it comes to gambling, a habit can be unhealthy in other ways as well. More and more time spent around gambling and prioritising games over other things in life.
Mood and behaviour
A change in personality can show that there’s something wrong. The person might become more easily irritated than usual or showing signs of depression or being low. It’s not uncommon that the person is isolating him or herself and starts avoiding social activities.
The signs above might not always be because of a gambling problem, but they are still signs of a friend in need of help. Don’t hesitate to reach out!
