Clinical Information
  • A disorder characterized by a preoccupation with gambling and the excitement that gambling with increasing risk provides. Pathological gamblers are unable to cut back on their gambling, despite the fact that it may lead them to lie, steal, or lose a significant relationship, job, or educational opportunity.
  • Many people enjoy gambling, whether it's betting on a horse or playing poker on the internet. Most people who gamble don't have a problem, but some lose control of their gambling. Signs of problem gambling include
    • always thinking about gambling
    • lying about gambling
    • spending work or family time gambling
    • feeling bad after you gamble, but not quitting
    • gambling with money you need for other things
    many people can control their compulsive gambling with medicines and therapy. Support groups can also help.
