Assess Your Gambling Tool

Do you, or someone you know, have a gambling problem? Ask yourself:

Have you ever felt the need to bet more and more money?
Have you ever had to lie to people important to you about how much you gambled?

If you answered YES to one or both questions you have recognised that you may have a gambling problem.
