With the right support, you can rebuild what has been lost. There are 7 helplines that support with gambling concerns in Ireland who can assist you. Reach out if you're experiencing the following:

  • Using borrowed money to gamble.
  • Lying or stealing to get money for gambling.
  • Feeling guilty or ashamed after gambling.
  • Thinking that the next bet will solve all of your problems.
  • Being secretive about your gambling habits.
  • Selling personal or family items to get money to gamble with.
  • Planning how to spend more time gambling.
