It can be tricky to know when gambling goes from having a bit of fun to causing more losses than you actually want or can manage. For others it escalates quickly.
This episode helps people understand what ‘harmful’ gambling actually is. We interview two people who share their gambling stories and reflect back on how it all started – Elizabeth who gambled on the pokies and Dan whose sports / horse gambling got out of control. We also chat to Sheryl, a Gambler’s Help counsellor about the different levels of gambling harm.
*All our interviews are based on the experiences and opinions of the individuals interviewed and may contain some course language. Our stories are real stories and we hope they inspire hope and change. However, if you feel distressed by anything you hear please see the ‘Getting Help’ section for services that can help.
