Don't Gamble Your Life Away! - HELP FOR PATHOLOGICAL GAMBLERS

 

Gambling is a recreational activity common in cultures all over the world. For most people, gambling is a relaxing pastime with few negative consequences. The problem starts when gamblers lose control and bet money they cannot afford to lose – and in the process sacrifice their job, family, friends, and even their life. When does gambling become a problem? What are the warning signals to look out for? Can a gambling addict recover and take control of his life again?

This book, the first written locally on problem gambling, addresses the concerns of gamblers and their families, with comprehensive sections on: 

  • Understanding pathological gambling 
  • Treatment methods 
  • Impact on the family 
  • Community resources and helplines 

This book also contains real-life stories of people who have battled gambling addiction and are making their journey towards recovery.
