Gambling Help logo

While many people gamble for entertainment, some Australians develop gambling habits that impact negatively on themselves, their families and their communities.

Some of the difficulties that come with gambling at problematic levels include:

  • Having no money for bills, food or rent
  • Health problems, such as stress, depression, loss of sleep and anxiety
  • Being at a high risk of losing family, friends, your house or job.

Common reasons people gamble to such lengths include:

  • To make quick money
  • To relax or get away from life’s stresses or problems
  • To fill in time when there’s nothing else to do

Whatever the reason for gambling problematically, the one thing that’s guaranteed is that the longer you continue, the harder it will be to stop.
