Time to change. High earner, negative assets.

What are some strategies when trying to quit or cut down? What works for you?

Hi I am exactly the same. Earn good money but always looking for cash because I have gambled mine away. It makes me feel so ashamed when I think of what others survive on when I waste so much.

Hi ,

It is horrible being alone in your thoughts with a gambling addiction.

Im hoping to share information/feedback from those who have been through the same thing.


Even if its a kind word, gesture, story, information.


Its a good idea to get support from other people who really know what gambling addiction feels like.


Knowing your not alone is probably one of the most important factors of getting over the addiction too.


Thanks Mel

Hi Mel

I agree with everything you said in that post. It's always nice to know you're not alone in something, and gambling can be such an isolating exercise, can't it. I'm really glad you've come onto the forum.

What are some of the strategies you've got in place when you get an urge to gamble? And what leads you to gamble in the first place?

Hi Ansert,

I know how you feel, I am also on a decent income (when I can get work that is) and its insane how we treat money. I am seeing jobs are becoming a lot harder to get and every tom, **** and harry is trying to get into mining with no luck. First thing, like I did, only have one credit card with a $2000 limit or less and throw the rest away.

Try and set up a budget if you can and make sure all your bills are paid first before any gambling takes place, this has worked for me. basically, it should have the following look in order of priority

1) Expenses - mortgage, rent food, bills
2) General Savings for up and coming large expenses (eg insurance)
3) Fixed amount for savings into a high interest account
4) Spare amount for gambling only

thanks

Hi Daniel1

Sorry, we've taken down your videos - we didn't think they were relevant!

Thanks
