Signs of Compulsive Gambling
Gambling addiction is often referred to as a “hidden addiction.” Unlike many other addictions, such as drugs or alcohol, addicted gamblers do not display any obvious physical signs or symptoms. Despite the lack of outward indicators, there are many similarities between gambling and other addictive disorders. For instance, problem gamblers will go through great lengths to hide or deny their addiction, often withdraw from family and friends and lie about what they’ve been doing and where they’ve been going.
