There are many activities that can become a problem if they are not practiced in a moderate way (shopping, playing games, etc.). The same can happen with the gambling. Signs of addiction are often difficult to detect, either in oneself or another person, and may sometimes even not be related to money. The game can be a symptom of a bigger problem.
Maybe the gambling has become a way to escape or avoid facing another problem. The motivation for gambling can be so strong that the person is not even aware of the real problems and the possible consequences. In this case, it is important to know that there is professional help available.
It is very important to detect this type of behaviour before the consequences are important. Unfortunately, gambling problems can present with symptoms not only physical but also economic and social. Fortunately, most people can bet and play sparingly throughout our life without becoming a problem.
