Publisher's Summary

When does gambling step over the line from entertainment to addiction?

Gambling has moved from a sin and a vice to a pastime and form of recreation. How does a family know when one's recreation has moved from a hobby to a compulsion or addiction?

Estimates of how many people classify themselves as social gamblers that really qualify for a diagnosis of gambling addiction are from two to five percent. Millions of Americans suffer from pathological gambling, although more men than women, at a ratio of 4:1. Men tend to enter the world of gambling as teenagers, but women begin gambling as adults. Women escalate their gambling addiction faster than men, however.

Men gravitate toward personal betting games like table games, cards, blackjack, craps, and sports betting. Women are more likely to choose bingo, slots or keno games that are impersonal and passive. This audiobook will explore the history and trends of gambling addiction.
