Self-assessment questions Self-assessment questions Answering the questions below will help you assess the level of your gambling: Do you stay away from work to gamble? Do you gamble to escape from a boring or unhappy life? When you're gambling and run out of money, do you feel lost or empty and in despair, and need to gamble again as soon as possible? Do you gamble until your last penny is gone, even the bus fare home or the price of a cup of tea? Have you ever lied to cover up the amount of money or time you spend gambling? Have others ever criticised or made comments about your gambling? Have you stolen, borrowed or lied to get money to gamble or pay gambling debts? Are you reluctant to spend 'gambling money' on anything else? Have you lost interest in your family, friends or hobbies? After losing, do you feel you must try and win back your losses as soon as possible? Do arguments, frustrations or disappointments make you want to gamble? Do you feel depressed or even suicidal because of your gambling? The more you answer 'Yes' to these questions, the more likely you are to have a serious gambling problem.
