2,000 Gambling Addicts In Ireland Seek Help In Just a Week

Gambling addiction in Ireland has been a fatal crisis because it has already reached the so-called “epidemic proportions” because more than 2000 have been struggling with gambling addiction and attending counseling meetings weekly. An anonymous gambling group in Ireland confirmed that the numbers of addicts have been doubled in the last 10 years.

The group claimed that more meetings will be held in the upcoming weeks to provide for the demand because the problem is growing fast beyond they expected.

The support service has said that the addiction was shared beyond both sexes, with over a hundred women who seek help for them to overcome their struggles in spending too much in casinos and bingo halls, as well as wasting their primary savings on scratchcards and lotteries.
