If betting on the big game is something you plan to do this weekend, we have a warning for you.

7 Eyewitness News talked to a licensed clinical social worker who specializes in treating people with addiction. Matt Jost says a little fun can quickly escalate into a dangerous addiction.

Jost says if you have had problems with gambling in the past, you should pass on any bets this weekend and in the future.

If you think you have a problem you should seek help right away.

Jost encourages people to get in touch with him by calling him 716-982-2061 or mjost2@verizon.net
