Know the Signs


Secretive about gambling habits

You don’t feel the need to share your gambling habit. You will lie about the amount of money you may have lost, or the time spent gambling. Your goal is to let those around you know about your big wins, which seem to come less and less often.


Trouble controlling your gambling

When you are gambling, you are in a trance, and the rest of the world, including your friends and family, take a back seat to your gambling habit. Time slips by...and the amount of time you spend gambling increases. You are driven to gamble until you win back what you have lost.


Gambling when you don’t have the money

When the last dollar is gone, you look for more: in credit cards, money meant for other family expenses. You beg, borrow or even steal the necessary money to feed your gambling addiction. You invent lies to get money from your children or friends. But there is never enough.


Family & friends express concern

They are worried because you have changed. You were once a very reliable part of the family, now your time is taken up by gambling. They are worried because they think you are driven to gamble, and they are right. Like you, they do not have an answer for your gambling addiction.

Randy’s Story

I had been actively gambling nearly all of my adult life, a period spanning more than 30 years. It started with some bets at the racetrack in my teen years, then progressed to active sports betting in my mid-20s. I can still remember the rush of excitement that went...

Andi’s Story

Nearly three years ago, I realized I had a problem. My gambling was out of control and I was spending money I didn’t have. For a long time, I didn’t see my gambling as a problem; everyone else gambled – why shouldn’t I? The gambling that used to occur once in a while...

Mike’s Story

When I initially started in GA, I had no idea where I was, wanted, felt or why I became the compulsive gambler. Many things in my life became unmanageable: relationships, finances, emotions. All I knew was that gambling allowed me to forgo all these responsibilities...
