Gamblers Anonymous Twenty Questions

Gamblers Anonymous Twenty Questions

Gamblers Anonymous (GA) is a group that helps people share their experience, support and hope in order to stop gambling and build better lives. These people follow a 12-Step program and go to meetings to talk about their gambling and abstinence experiences. GA uses the Twenty Questions listed below as a self test for new members. If someone answers 'yes' to 7 or more of these, GA believes that the person has a problem with gambling.
