PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Super Bowl is days away and for most of us it is an excuse to get together and take an evening to look at the game and rate the commercials.  

Many will make friendly wagers as part of the festivities too. But there is a group – a very large group – who will be betting large amounts and trying to catch up for all the losses from the year.

If you are in that group or thinking about it, reach out to one of the many groups that can help you with gambling and give you that support.

Gamblers anonymous and other organizations are there to help. Call your physician or a trusted friend.

The Super Bowl should be fun – not a life changing event.
