Playing It Safe (How to Keep Gambling Recreational)

Post by Administrator » Wed May 14, 2008 5:52 pm

Following these simple rules can help keep gambling recreational. To make sure you’re not gambling more than you can afford to lose:

• Before gambling, be fully aware of the risks involved.
• Set a dollar limit and stick to it.
• Decide how much of your time you are allotting to gambling and leave when you reach your limit – whether you are winning or losing.
• Establish a “buddy system” by gambling with a friend or family member to keep your gambling in check.
• Know the FCCG HelpLine number: 888-ADMIT-IT (888-236-4848) and be willing to make contact if problems arise (e.g. spending more time or money than intended).
