Gaming Addiction Checklist

We understand that some people who develop a problem with their gambling don’t always realise it. If you are concerned about a partner, family member or friend, you should consider whether the following items apply to the person you are worried about:

  • Do you think their gambling has begun to affect their work, college or university studies?
  • Do you think they are lying to cover up the amount of money or time they spend gambling?
  • Is their gambling becoming a focus for arguments and disagreements with family and friends?
  • Do they borrow or steal money from family or friends in order to gamble?
  • Has their gambling caused them to lose interest in other hobbies and family activities?
  • Have they become violent or abusive towards family or friends as a result of losing money while gambling?
  • Are you concerned that someone under the age of 18 has begun gambling?
