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.

1 2 3 4 5
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.
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.
