Can gambling be an addiction? I'm not sure if my brother is addicted to it or not. He has always dabbled in gambling but for the past few months, his gambling got worse. I tried to convince him to stop this but he is not listening to me. He is losing everything. He lost his job because of gambling and I'm worried about his future. I used to go with him once in a while and I enjoy it. But I'm not addicted to it. I think he needs counseling so I'm planning to take him to a wellness treatment centre in Toronto. I don't know if he will listen to me. Is there a way to stop gambling addiction? I'm not against gambling but I'm against addiction. This addiction can ruin many lives. And I don't want that to happen.
