What Is Gambling Addiction? Do I Have a Problem?

As mentioned previously, some people gamble on occasion and do not suffer from the harmful effects of gambling addiction. So, what separates this occasional activity from a diagnosable addiction? While it isn’t always clear to those suffering with the addiction, the following often signify a gambling problem:

  • You are always thinking about gambling: planning future gambling activities and pondering past gambling wins or losses
  • You suffer when you are not gambling, e.g., you feel restless and/or irritable
  • You continue to gamble even when your job, relationships, or other important areas of life are in jeopardy
  • You continue to gamble even when it causes you financial trouble
  • You try to win your money back through other means of gambling
  • You lie to others about your gambling activity
  • You gamble to remedy anxious, depressive, or other difficult thoughts and feelings

To be diagnosed with a gambling addiction, you must meet at least four of the above criteria set forth by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5). That said, even if you aren’t experiencing four or more of these symptoms, you could be headed down a dark and dangerous path. Fortunately, a counselor at Thriveworks in Littleton, CO can help you address and manage your gambling problem—whether you’ve been diagnosed with gambling addiction, meet the criteria for gambling addiction, or are inching toward a gambling problem. Whatever the case, they will help you to change your problematic behaviors.
