Signs of addiction

One of the signs of addiction in gamblers is that they tend to miss out on important family functions and mostly stay away from social gatherings.  They even stop hanging out with friends.  They start telling lot of lies to cover up their addiction.  All these actions do suggest the chances of the person being addicted to gambling.  If a gambler feels that he cannot stop or control his urge of playing then definitely he is addicted.

The major sign is losing important relationships, a job, or work opportunities because of gambling.

I feel the most important sign is the urge they feel to gamble. They look anxious and stressed all the time. They also would become absent-minded and would fail to carry out their duties.

Some of the signs of addiction which I have personally seen is an urge to buy lottery tickets, visit casinos, bet on sports, gamble online.

Yes Yes, despite facing social, financial and legal consequences the urge to gamble cannot be controlled if addicted.

Some extreme signs are depression and anxiety.

Self harming tendency is also a major sign to be noticed.

Reporting late for work is a major sign of addiction that cannot be ignored at all.
