Having a gamble can be a fun way to spend time with friends or relax. However, some people can develop a ‘gambling problem’, that is, behaviour related to gambling which causes harm to the gambler and those around them. If you, or someone you know, is struggling to control their gambling behaviour it can cause stress, depression, anxiety, they may fall behind at work and worry about money. If gambling is causing any of these effects, it is considered problem gambling.
Problem gambling can affect anyone. It can happen at any age, to males or females, and to people from any ethnic background.
