I was recently invited to the Fold Em Podcast hosted by Adrienne Cossom and Gambling Support BC, check it out below!

Most of us gamble. In British Columbia, nearly 75% of adults gambled at least once in the past year. For some (about 3-4% of adults), it gets out of hand and causes problems.

If you gamble, how do you keep it in check? What limits should you set for yourself? How do you stick to these limits?

In this episode, we tell you about guidelines that have recently been developed in Canada to help you reduce the risk of experiencing harm from gambling.
