It would be useful - and probably attract more helpful responses - if you could give some more background and context, for example:

- what is your real name?

- who do you work for (hopefully not William Hill) / is it part of an academic thesis / industry research etc.

- how will you use the results exactly?

- are all responses anonymous?

I've done it and i like gambling; it's clearly anonymous and looks very academic.

It has a sampling issue in that it's entirely aimed at Problem gamblers and then looks to correlate this problem with how they feel at work; given that many of us gamblers are both happy at work and not problem gamblers it's mainly a waste of sample Although I guess it would maybe support, show a correlation between happiness at work and non-gambling problem gamblers?

With the exception of an academic in Nottingham (name slips me)who does some really interesting stuff, most academic gambling research is entirely driven and framed around "Addiction and problem" this is all very well and useful but misses a whole bunch of other and interesting stuff around non-problem gamblers (the majority) why people gamble; how; fallacies of gambling etc

Is doing 6 on the lottery about twice a month (then forgetting to check your numbers) considered gambling?

I do have splurges where I play on a Wednesday or a roll over

Never thought that might be related to my work pressures, I'll keep an eye on that

I like the two penny machines at amusement arcades but I don't think this affects my work.

The high experienced from winning a toy (that you could have bought cheaper at pound store) is pretty good.

since our late MP Tessa Jowell massively increased the opportunities for gambling in the UK there has been a massive rise in problem gambling....most problem gamblers have probably not admitted it to themselves yet- their poor families have to pick up the pieces....

As a youngster I put money in pub fruit machines and usually lost.

One habit I managed to completely kick and the better for it.
