Having a flutter on the horses, placing an online bet on a football match or getting rid of some loose change on a slot machine or hard-earned cash at a roulette table can be a bit of fun and enjoyment for millions around the world.
But when that fun mutates into something more serious and an addiction to pathological gambling starts to develop, the consequences can be devastating - on physical and mental health and also on loved ones and families.
Gambling addiction can completely dominate an individual’s life - and destroy relationships, businesses and lead to financial ruin, potentially suicide too.
A joint study by Yale University and the CT Council on Problem Gambling found that one in five gamblers who had called a helpline had previously attempted to kill themselves.
However, with the correct expert treatment, pathological gambling can be addressed and sufferers able to enjoy life in a healthy way once again.
