Do excessive gamblers often have difficulties with alcohol or drugs?

People with gambling difficulties often experience other problems such as alcohol and substance misuse. The nature of this relationship is unclear. It appears that the relationship goes both ways: people who gamble excessively are more likely to misuse substances; and conversely, people who misuse substances are more likely to gamble. One hypothesis suggests there are common factors making individuals more vulnerable to addictions (including or excluding substances).
