Do You Feel Beaten Down From Chasing Your Losses? Losing Money, Relationships And Self-Respect? For compulsive gamblers, chasing losses is a seemingly endless cycle. It can bring shame and pain to you and to the ones you love most.
From gambling away money set aside for bills to stealing money from family and friends, compulsive gamblers make decisions that in no way reflect the responsible, loving people they are outside of their addictions.
Two–thirds of adults in America place some kind of bet each year on sporting events, in slot machines, through the purchase of lotto tickets, on online gambling sites and more.
And though the vast majority will never have a gambling problem, as many as 15 million people in the United States do show signs of gambling addiction.
