When one has a gambling addiction you never realize the situation that you are not only placing yourself in but the situation that you place others in that are close to you. If you are gambling away your earnings and hiding a debt that you may be creating due to gambling you are just sinking yourself into a hole that you will not dig yourself out of.

As other addictions you have to deal with your problem at one time or another and the sooner that you do this, the sooner you will be on your road to recovery. The first thing you have to do having a gambling addiction is admitting to yourself that you have a gambling problem in the first place.

Perhaps one of the best self tests to check to see if you have a gambling addiction is take the twenty self question test offered by Gamblers Anonymous. If you answer seven or more of the twenty questions yes, the chances are that you suffer from a gambling problem or addiction.

The fellowship that you will find offered by Gamblers Anonymous with their Recovery Program where you may get yourself help and be on the road to recovery and a better life.
