Gambling is a bigger problem then most of us understand. If you think that your gambling has gotten out-of-control then please come talk to a counselor here at the wellness center.
The Florida Council on Competitive Gambling defines:
"Pathological gambling, commonly referred to as compulsive gambling, is a progressive behavior disorder in which a person has a psychological uncontrollable preoccupation and urge to gamble. This results in excessive gambling, the outcome of which is the loss of time and money. The gambling reaches the point where it compromises, disrupts and destroys the gambler's personal life, family relationships or vocational pursuits. These problems lead to the intensification of the gambling behavior."
