Not everyone who gambles has a problem.
The gambling becomes a problem when it affects your relationships, finances or your health.
Your family suffers the most from your gambling
as there may not be enough funds for food and paying bills.
Because most people are not able to deal with this problem on their own, family and friends are key.
This becomes even a bigger problem in communities
where problem gambling is not openly discussed.
Families with problem gamblers may feel shunned
to seek professional help.
In Ontario, free and confidential professional
help is available around the clock.
Do not let gambling destroy your family.
