Tackling Problem Gambling
The four elements of problem gambling are:
STRATEGY - Alternate Activities
Fill the void of gambling with other activities.
STRATEGY - Limit Access to Venue
Self exclusion - voluntarily ban yourself from the gaming venue.
STRATEGY - Limit Access to Money
Don’t take ATM cards, carry limited cash, hand over control of money to someone else.
STRATEGY - Re-Think!
A choice is made to gamble. Choose to avoid gambling one day at a time, choose to consider consequences of your actions, and choose not to entertain gambling thoughts.
If any one of these elements is removed then gambling is NOT possible.
