Your gambling behaviour is risky and already has negative consequences. You should think about your gambling behavior: Is it the case that you play more and more often and sometimes gamble more money than planned? Do you think about gambling more often? Do you have the feeling that you will soon make up for your losses with winnings? This indicates that you should change something. The contents of "Check your gambling behavior" can help you. If you have questions or would like help with your change, dont hesitate to get help. This is a courageous step to get your situation back under control.

Your gambling behavior leads to strong negative consequences. You no longer play for fun, because you have to make up for losses. You have lost control over gambling and are putting your finances and your social and professional relationships at risk. We strongly recommend that you seek support and advice. You can do this in a specialist office or anonymously by telephone or e-mail.
