8.5 trans 2

  1. 1. Grade 8 | Unit 8.5 | Page 9 Unit 8.5 Transparency 2 SHOULD I GAMBLE OR NOT? There are times when a person should not gamble at all: • When an individual is under the legal gambling age, 18. • When using substances that impair decisions or alter moods, e.g. alcohol or drugs. • When other people or responsibilities are being neglected as a result of the gambling. • When the gambling activity is illegal. People who after careful consideration still choose to gamble should keep the following guidelines in mind: • Maintain balance. • Set limits. • Never borrow money to gamble. • Assess your reasons for gambling. • Know that gambling is not essential for having a good time. • Know that you cannot control the selection process of the outcome of a game of chance. Winning is a matter of luck. • Recognize that the longer you play, the more it will cost you. FREE HELPLINE: 0800 006 008 Consolidation: Are you now able to: • Outline how to make responsible decisions about risky behaviour like gambling? • Assess your own risky circumstances? • Discuss the probability of winning (and losing!) in games of chance? • Distinguish between the different levels of control you have over decision- making processes, over risky circumstances in which you find yourself, and over the selection process of outcomes in games of chance? • Know where to seek help for a gambling problem?
