Talk to someone if you're feeling overwhelmed

If you feel that you are struggling with gambling, or that your gambling is becoming a problem, then talk to someone. Talking about the issues you are facing can help you to cope with the situation you are in, and there are many organisations that can help.

More information about the signs of problem gambling can be found on the GambleAware website (opens in new tab) and GamCare website (opens in new tab).

They provide general information about gambling, including how to gamble safely and where to get help if you or someone you know has problems with their gambling.
