9.5 trans 2

  1. 1. Grade 9 | Unit 9.5 | Page 9 Unit 9.5 Transparency 2 WHAT ARE THE BAD CONSEQUENCES OF PROBLEM GAMBLING? Problem gamblers, on a repeated basis, feel that they have lost more money than they could comfortably afford to. They are unable to place limits on the time and money spent on gambling. They cannot control or stick to their decision about the amount of time or money spend on gambling. Joe, for example, instead of spending some of his own spare money he has, spends his mother's money on gambling and instead of being in school, spends the time gambling. Which of the following problems and negative consequences has Joe's gambling created? • Financial problems and debts? • Family conflict? • Problems with friends? • Problems at school or work? • Medical or psychological problems? • Addiction problems? • Involvement with criminals and risky activities? • Problems with the police? • Reduced work ethic and productivity? • Depression and thoughts of suicide?
