    Do they realise how much they spend and lose, what's the best way to convince them that gambling a a waste of money

    different for different people. I met quite a few addicts back when I played poker at uni.. some were completely oblivious to their problem, but others knew what they were doing was causing problems, but still couldn't stop.

    Most were somewhere in the middle, deep down they knew it was a problem, but they would just keep making excuses to themselves, and keep fighting to hide away from the reality.

    Gambling addiction is really bad, like you don't know how to stop they could have grands and be broke in a couple days, do you think counselling would help
