Compulsive gambling is a disease, often a hidden one. It is a chronic and progressive disease, much like alcoholism or drug addiction.
Problem gambling can affect men and women of any age, race, or religion, regardless of their social status. Problem gamblers are much more likely than others to have problems with drinking, drugs and smoking, and to suffer from depression. Problem gambling has been called the “hidden addiction”, as there are few outward signs until it is too late.
