Most of us gamble. In British Columbia, nearly 75% of adults gambled at least once in the past year. For some (about 3-4% of adults), it gets out of hand and causes problems.
If you gamble, how do you keep it in check? What limits should you set for yourself? How do you stick to these limits?
In this episode, we tell you about guidelines that have recently been developed in Canada to help you reduce the risk of experiencing harms from gambling.
Listen now to learn about:
- guidelines for how much to spend, how often to play, and how to limit the types of gambling activities
- who has a higher risk of developing gambling problems
- tips for sticking to your gambling limits.
