•

Compulsive gambling
Gambling addiction
Weak willed gambling
Treatable addiction
Problem gambling
Moral weakness
Lifestyle choice
“Compulsive gambling is not
serious, and it’s a lifestyle
choice. It’s like going to the bar
and enjoying pulltabs and beers
several times a week. It
becomes a problem when the
player has to hit the ATM too
often.”
Consensus opinion
• Starts as a lifestyle choice
• Becomes uncontrollable due to financial
losses or pleasure of win
• Ultimately becomes an addiction
• This addiction is treatable
Key Findings
• Opinions are poorly formed and weakly held
(mostly)
• Problem gambling is accepted as a serious
issue
• But it is often seen as a moral weakness
• It is commonly stigmatized
• It happens to “other” people
• The public is skeptical about treatment
effectiveness
Key messages
• Problem gambling can affect
anyone, regardless of age or social/ethnic
class
• Problem gambling is not a moral
weakness. It is a medical condition.
• Problem gambling is preventable
• Treatment is available
Key messages

4.

Gambling addiction is a serious problem with serious consequences.
Thousands of people suffer from this addiction, which can lead to
devastating financial problems, neglect of family and work, criminal
activity, and even suicide. Many more suffer as the result of the gambling
of a loved one.
Problem gambling is a treatable condition, and services are available in
your community. While recovery takes time, patience, and
support, people suffering from this condition are able to reclaim their lives.
Problem gamblers are young, old, male, female, rich, poor and come from
every ethnic background. They are not simply morally weak, and are not
bad people. They are good people with a bad problem.
Breaking the cycle of gambling addiction is critical to a healthy society. It
is far less costly for society to treat gambling addictions than to deal with
the consequences of leaving the addiction untreated.

Thousands of people suffer from this addiction, which can lead to devastating financial problems, neglect of family and work, criminal activity, and even suicide. Many more suffer as the result of the gambling of a loved one. Problem gambling is a treatable condition, and services are available in your community. While recovery takes time, patience, and support, people suffering from this condition are able to reclaim their lives. Problem gamblers are young, old, male, female, rich, poor and come from every ethnic background. They are not simply morally weak, and are not bad people. They are good people with a bad problem. Breaking the cycle of gambling addiction is critical to a healthy society. It is far less costly for society to treat gambling addictions than to deal with the consequences of leaving the addiction untreated.

Editor's Notes

  1. And “someone else”
  2. Note that these don’t necessarily have “right” answersPollster’s truism: Don’t underestimate public’s intelligence, but don’t overestimate their knowledgeOpinion: direction vs depth
  3. Do they think of addictions as having common ground?
  4. Paul Lauzon suggests that one reason is people saying “it can’t happen to people like me – I have willpower”
  5. No demographic differences
  6. We asked people if they knew where to get help. About a third think they would. Strongly agree only 12%. But do they actually know?
  7. Services may or may not actually be available. Southerners least likely to endorse
  8. You will notice that “pathological gambling” and “gambling disorder” didn’t come up
  9. Note that all terms are two words, not like “alcoholism” or “depression”
  10. Preference was strongest for men – women were also comfortable with compulsive gambling. Why not problem gambling? Trivial.Most participants were persuadable – they were pretty quick to abandon their biases
  11. But not all – some were adamant about moral weakness and could not be persuaded otherwise.
  12. T-shirt slogan – it’s easy to trivialize
  13. But a few hold onto the belief that you could quit with enough mental disciplineBut awareness is low, compared to alcohol or drugs. Participants took a long time to formulate opinions, and were mostly easily changed.You need some degree of awareness for persuasive messaging to be effective
  14. Graveyard poster
  15. Next Ohio ATM
  16. Next Ohio lost a bet (would normally show Game Sense)
  17. ON condom ad next
  18. Next AU Kid Bet
  19. Back to more conventional – MN Cheating
  20. Oregon set nextNext OR young males – more conventional
  21. Which one do you like best?Which do you think the group participants liked best?It was a clear choice
  22. Heavy, dark, emotional. No call to action. No hope. Some questioned numbers and discounted messageLeast effective message. Something you’d hear in health class, or that “your grandma would tell you” – lecturing. Some people are bad. Insulting, irritatingNo rational or emotional appeal. Particularly poorly rated by men. “Good luck with that, buddy”Play radio ad
  23. Most of you will not be developing TV spots, but same principles hold for any communication. Press, physician, community group, maybe even one on one. Benoit Denizet-Lewis – America Anonymous (Read from book)We change one person at a time with one story at a time. It’s up to you.
