Posted on June 04, 2020 by Cathy Carter

Individuals who gamble keep doing so to avoid depression and stress. Many players usually bet to get some sense of excitement more especially when they win. Betting can be done in sports like football, racing, or playing poker with friends. Quitting betting is never easy for any individual but it can be done with the help of a social support group who are experienced and qualified in handling such matters related to addiction.
