Doing an honest self-assessment—just checking in on ourselves once in a while—is very helpful in maintaining wellness. You might start by thinking about what is important to you. Then you could ask what impact gambling is having on those things you value. For example, you might use the form below to do an assessment.

Questions 1 2 3 4 5
My gambling should enhance (or at least not hinder) my relationships with family and friends.
I should make money (or at least not lose more than I budget) from gambling.
Gambling should be a leisure activity and not take time away from other things in my life.
These may not be the only things important to you. You can make up your own list of values. Just jot them on a sheet of paper and rate each on a scale of 1 to 5.
Questions very negative somewhat negative neutral somewhat positive very positive
As above, assess the impact your gambling may be having on each of the things you value in life.
