Support your loved ones
Do you know someone who is playing too much? We have some tips that might help you as a friend.
Talk to someone
Starting a dialogue and actually talking about the problem is an important first step. As a friend or family member you possibly need to talk about the problems yourself because they are affecting you too. If the affected player gets treatment supported by our gaming insurance, then a relative can also join the treatment sessions.
Your health is just as important
It’s easy to forget yourself and only focus on the person with the problem. You can support them better if you also make sure that you take care of yourself.
Be a friend, not a bank
Players with gaming problems can come up with the most creative stories about why you should lend them money. As a close friend or relative, your job is first and foremost to support your friend emotionally, not financially. So keep careful control of your own finances.
