How can you help a problem Gambler?

It can be hard trying to help someone who gambles, especially if they do not think they have a problem or do not want to stop. Many people find it difficult to talk to someone close to them about gambling issues because they often do not know what to say and it can be confronting.

Simple gestures such as listening when the gambler wants to talk and checking how they are feeling can help them feel safe, so that they begin to talk about what’s going. Providing this support is an important step in recovery.

However, discussing the issue of gambling directly can be confronting for both you and the person who gambles.

Keep in mind that it may be a potentially sensitive conversation that could escalate and be upsetting for everyone concerned.
