- Increasingly argumentative or defensive about money
- Becoming increasingly reclusive
- Losing interest in socializing or other hobbies
- Always talking or thinking about gambling
- Lying or hiding habits from other people
- Gambling to get out of financial trouble
- Borrowing money, selling items or ignoring bills to fund gambling
- Needing to risk larger amounts of money to get enough of a ‘buzz’
- Neglecting relationships or responsibilities
- Feeling or acting depressed and miserable
- Feeling suicidal.
Understanding Gambling Addiction and Problem Gambling
Gambling addiction, also known as compulsive gambling, is a type of impulse-control disorder. Compulsive gamblers can’t control the impulse to gamble, even when they know their gambling is hurting themselves or their loved ones. Gambling is all they can think about and all they want to do, no matter the consequences. Compulsive gamblers keep gambling whether they’re up or down, broke or flush, happy or depressed. Even when they know the odds are against them, even when they can’t afford to lose, people with a gambling addiction can’t “stay off the bet.”
As with all compulsive and uncontrollable behaviors, living with a gambling addiction can have a seriously negative effect on all aspects of an addict’s life. Gamblers can have a problem, however, without being totally out of control. Problem gambling is any gambling behavior that disrupts your life. Being preoccupied with gambling, spending more and more time and money on it, chasing losses, or gambling despite serious consequences are all strong indicators of a gambling problem.
Unpleasant feelings such as stress, depression, loneliness, fear, and anxiety can trigger compulsive gambling or make it worse. After a stressful day at work, after an argument with a spouse or coworker, or to avoid more time spent alone, an evening at the track or the casino can seem like a fun, exciting way to unwind and socialize. Orlando Hypnosis Clinic‘s gambling hypnotherapy program allows the gambler to manage and take control of the gambling habit now!
