Are you able to move the money to a safe account straight away - one where you don't have instant access? Or give the money to someone who will help you be accountable? I feel that limiting access to cash is very important - especially at the start. Best wishes - you can do it!!!

Well I fell down yesterday and gave in to an urge. Sadly I enjoyed my time. But far less money, no cards, short time. That is an improvement. I don't think I can go cold turkey...It is too hard. But I am on my way again. I guess there are some down times with all the good. .

Sorry to hear that Matilda
If you can walk away with a small loss that is an improvement. But don't go back trying to chase your money. Otherwise it'll turn out just as bad.

I've given up access to money when I know I'll have the time to gamble alone. It has worked wonders for me.
But the one day I left my card in my wallet I was back in front of the machines again. Luckily I stopped myself just in time.

It is hard work and there are down days, but they are nowhere near as bad as the days where you lost more than you could afford.
Keep trying and looking to the webpage and forums for support.
