We realize that some people get in over their heads with their gambling until it has become a problem for them. If gambling is no longer fun, if gambling has become stressfull and it is at the point your making bad choices that directly effects your life we strongly urge you to seek help. If you feel that gambling has become a problem in your life then please consider quitting!
We at Streak Gaming care very much for our members and are here to help at anytime, please do not be embarrassed to ask for help. Always remember there is a way out.

Gambling is supposed to be recreational and entertaining, not a burden to you. There are places on the internet to go for help with your gambling addiction. Check out the link below and get some help if you feel you need it.

Gambling is a form of entertainm

We also would suggest if you feel you are having a problem with your gambling, it is best to avoid all the online gambling forums also. They will only temp you. We would be sad to lose a member, but we would feel so much better if the player got help with their problem.

So please, if you think you have a gambling problem, get the help you need!

We have always had a link posted at the bottom of the forum, but realized maybe some people never noticed it and might need it.

It is hard to realize that it is a problem for people having the problem though. I don't think I have a problem even if I play a lot.

Yes you are right. The hardest part of the addiction is admitting you have a problem!

It is not something everyone is aware of I am afraid, but something that needs to be faced at times by some of us :think

Sometimes it is the gambling experience itself, for example, a big win early MONy:: in someone's gambling experience can create a false perception that gambling is an easy way to earn money, putting the person at risk of increasing their dependence on gambling.

Yes, it's strange the way a lot of people have a big win early on too isn't it?

I had a Few example for this

Jason Berg killed himself after running up a huge gambling loss. He left a suicide note which simply read, "I'm out of control." He was 19 years old.

For those who have forgotten, probably the best-known pathological gambler is Pete Rose. A record-breaking hall of fame player was banned from the game he loved for life because of his gambling problems. :game

A 40 year old Illinois woman gambled away her family's savings and her wedding ring on a riverboat casino. When she found out that the sheriff was on his way to evict her and her family for missing 17 consecutive mortgage payments, she drove to a mall parking lot and shot herself. She left a husband who did not even know that his wife gambled, let alone had a gambling problem.

Its destroys families and destroys lives. My ex was a gambler, all he talked about was killing himself because he couldnt handle the stress and depression that came with gambling all his paychecks away. That is why we have these links up on the forum, if you have a gambling problem or know someone that does, please reach out and help them or yourselves!

Please remember though that not everyone that gambles has a problem. Just like everyone that drinks is not an alcoholic. If done responsibly they are both great entertainment.
