The rise in sports gambling, particularly due to online platforms, has led to an increase in gambling addiction, with a projected $23.1 billion wagered on this year’s Super Bowl.

The ease of access to online betting has raised concerns about addiction, especially among young men.

The lack of dedicated federal funding for research into problem gambling and the prevalence of gambling ads during sports broadcasts have become an increasing issue.

Gambling addiction, also known as gambling disorder, is a recognized mental health condition characterized by the inability to control the urge to gamble despite negative consequences.

It’s important to distinguish between occasional recreational gambling and addiction, as the latter causes significant harm to various aspects of an individual’s life.

Gambling can be a fun and social activity for many people. However, for others, the thrill of the game can become an all-consuming force, leading to a dangerous path of gambling addiction.

Gambling addiction can have devastating consequences on individuals, families, and communities. It can lead to:

• Financial ruin: Loss of savings, debts, and bankruptcy.

• Relationship problems: Strained relationships with family and friends due to broken trust and neglect.

• Mental health issues: Increased anxiety, depression, and suicidal thoughts.

• Legal troubles: Involvement in illegal activities to fund gambling.

• Physical health problems: Stress-related illnesses, sleep disturbances, and substance abuse.
