    Gambling addiction – ETHOS HEALTH CARE

    Gambling addiction is a mental-health problem. Gambling addiction is also called compulsive gambling or pathological gambling. The types of gambling that people with this disorder might engage in are as variable as the games available. Some of the activities in which compulsive gamblers engage are:

    • Betting on sports
    • Buying lotto tickets
    • Slot machines
    • Playing poker
    • Roulette
    • Gambling in casino

    Negative Effects of gambling addiction

    • Increase in the domestic violence in families having people with gambling addiction.
    • People with gambling addiction frequently involve in quarrels and fights with their family members over the issue of excessive gambling.
    • The children of people having compulsive gambling also posses high risk of suffering from mental disorders such as behavior problems, depression, substance abuse and others.
    • Excessive gambling addiction also has some negative consequences on the mental as well as physical health of the individual who suffers from the condition.
    • Financial issues become a way of life for the problem gambler.

    Overcoming a gambling addiction or problem is never easy. But recovery is possible if you stick with treatment and seek support. Every gambler is unique and so needs a recovery program tailored specifically to him or her. What works for one gambler won’t necessarily work for other. The biggest step in treatment is realizing you have a problem with gambling. It takes tremendous strength and courage to own up to this. Make life changes, i.e. removing yourself from the environment which encourages you to gamble. Find something else to occupy your mind. Hypnotherapy can help you in your battle against gambling addiction by reprogramming your subconscious mind from gambler to “non gambler.”
