Hi, hey well done on stopping and walking away.

We are all here to support each other and the best thing you have done is to come on to post
.
We have all wandered off the path but as long as we keep trying to give up we can one day get there. Stay on the forum and read and i hope it gives you strength.

Well done Needhelp! You are slowly building the power within you to know it is time to stop! Keep fighting! Keep saying no to gambling.

Well done Needhelp589 :) The urge to gamble does pass, it's just really uncomfortable at the time (almost like an itch!). It sounds like reading and posting on the forums was a good distraction technique for you, which is great! I encourage you to do the same again today.

Today didn't go how I wanted it to, but I wont let it drag me down. Tonight i'm going thru all my online betting accounts and putting them on self exclusion. That's my main reason I bet, its too easy, but if I cant have that acesss then I wont bet. Ill actually have to leave and go to the pub and do it/ It's too easy using places like sportsbet, crownbet etc. So as of writing this I have self exclusions on them :) A good step, I should of done earlier.

Hi again Needhelp589, how did you go with self-excluding from your online betting accounts?

Another method, in case you weren't aware of the option, is to download an app called Gamblock. This app picks up on and blocks gambling sites and software on selected devices, so it really just removes that temptation and ease altogether. It's worth noting there is a fee involved for a year's subscription, but in most cases you are still saving in the long term.

Keep working towards your goals everyone,

Need Help,

How are you going?
Certainly a good idea to exclude yourself from all your online betting sites.
Theres a lot of things we all should have done sooner but the good thing is you are doing it now.
Keep pushing, stay positive and believe in yourself and don't stop trying to give up even if you fall off the tack. ☺
