Inside the Brain of a Gambling Addict

View this interesting and revealing look into the mind of gambling addicts from BBC News.

I’ve personally struggled with gambling addiction in the past. I eventually learned to gamble like a normal person with a reasonable budget, but I know how difficult it can be. Learning to play responsibly and just for fun and entertainment is so much more enjoyable than trying to gamble for hours or days with the illusion of making huge piles of money.

If you have a gambling problem please get yourself help and learn about responsible gaming.

In the UK get help from BeGambleAware National Gambling Helpline Freephone.
