Problem Gambling Awareness

Many problem-gamblers say their first awareness of their addictive disorder was inability to resist the impulse to gamble despite the consequences. Whether driving down the street or flying cross-country to gamble, it did not matter. Next came spending more than intended and “chasing losses” to win it back, often with the distorted idea that they could make amends to others hurt by broken promises to quit or cut back. Problem gambling is a recognized mental disorder, and it’s treatable. You can learn more here or contact a professional counselor through your employer.
