How do you know if your a gambling addict?

i try to deny that i am but i think that i am, i mean its only sometimes on the slot machines in pubs and a scrach card every other day and it's not like i spend more than a couple of quid on a slot machine until i give up or spend over a fiver on scratch cards but what if that enough to be an addict or at least the start of it.

i never buy a scatch card or go on the slots when im short of money, its usually when I've just got paid and i do these not really for the money but for the rush of it or at least thats what i tell myself.

i mean i spend at most a tenner a week on scrach cards and i rarely go on slots unless im in a pub which is rarely, when i win on a scrach card its cool and when i lose i don't make a big deal out of it but still.

plus thats still like 40 maybe 50 quid from the month gone from my wages already, what do you think?

  • If you're spending money that you need for other things, you have a problem.
    If you expect to win, you have a problem.
    Do you necessarily have a problem from the information you've given? Nah.
    I still wouldn't recommend as a pasttime, just because it seems wasteful AND boring, but if you find it fun that's fine I guess.
