#3 – Gambling
The lights and sounds are amazing when you walk into a casino, it grabs your attention, and that is just the beginning of getting swept up in the excitement of the surroundings. For many gambling is just a pastime, something people enjoy doing, but for others it is a deadly trap of winning and losing. Getting a thrill from taking big risks, gamble as a way to escape problems, borrowing or stealing money for gambling, and reliving past big wins are all part of the signs of someone who has a gambling issue. Failed attempts to cut back, concealing or lying about gambling, and taking time away from work or family are other signs to be cautious of. Casino’s not only give people an exciting atmosphere, they also often serve free alcohol to those who are gambling which means people can suffer from multiple addictions in this setting.
