Guest: Tom Seaver Lottery Director March was Problem Gambling Awareness Month. As more options to gamble in Colorado grow, so does the importance of talking about gaming responsibly. The American Psychiatric Association defines pathological gambling as “an impulse control disorder that is a chronic and progressive mental illness.  About 4-6 million Americans qualify as problem gamblers.  Signs of problem gambling are chasing losses, feel like they need to gamble more, restless when they try to stop, lie about how much they are gambling or even stealing to gamble.  Think of gambling as a source of entertainment, set a budget or time, take a break are ways to pay responsibly.     800-522-4700 – National Council on Problem Gambling Coloradolottery.com
