Gamblers and lies.

Gamblers and lies.  Brian Dennis counselling.


Most gamblers have to lie Otherwise they are a person without any social life, having little interaction with other people. The reason for the lies is generally their perceived belief, correct or not, in other peoples reactions to gambling. If a gambler loses money, their partner is likely to be critical; if a gambler wins money, their partner is likely to be critical of their gambling activity.


Common lies and excuses of gamblers:

  • The money must have fallen out of my wallet.
  • The bank have made a mistake.
  • Somebody cheated me.
  • The website is a fraud.
  • I was on a winning streak.


The common emotion is that the gambler is not responsible for their actions in gambling. Frequently they will blame some other person or entity.
