“Questions” (Problem Gambling)


Michigan Problem Gambling Helpline, how
can I help you? My wife thinks I have a
problem. Do you think so? No. I mean, I
gamble, sure. But it’s just for fun. Can
I ask you a few questions? Okay. Have you
ever skipped paying a bill or used
savings to gamble? Maybe once or twice.
Okay, well after you lose money, do you
ever feel anxious to get back to
gambling because you just know you can
win it back? Yeah, I know that feeling.
Have you ever lied about how much you’ve
lost? Well… yeah. And have you taken money
from your wife to gamble? Maybe I do have
a problem. I can help you. If you think
you may have a gambling problem, call the
helpline at 1-800-270-7117. A message from
the Michigan Department of Health and
Human Services.
