The gambling addiction can affect everyone around you. The impacts from compulsive gambling can be devastating to those closest to the gambler, including family, friends, co workers, etc. Not only can this addiction affect the finances in the family, but it can do great emotional and physical damage to the gambler’s loved ones, as well. From losing basic necessities like food and shelter, to losing hope and trust, the consequences can be severe for everyone involved. Family members need to know that there is help out there for them too. There are ways to cope with the issues that are associated with compulsive gambling and ways that you can help your loved one as well. Call 1-888-ADMIT-IT (1-888-236-4848) for more information.
With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.
