If you have a smart phone - Apple Pay or the android version I have found is very effective.

You scan add your debit card to the wallet feature and paywave your phone to make purchases. The card details are not kept on the phone but the device is registered with your bank. Iphone lets you use your fingerprint for authorisation.

Credit cards should be cut up, paid off and cancelled!!!

Lock your cards away at home and then you dont have access to withdraw cash. Just be mindful of places that may charge a minimum eftpos fee etc.

With the digital age you can pretty much electronically pay for anything so you should never need to use cash. Alternatively once a week withdraw $50 cash lock away the card.

I seriously think if u have ANY credit cards, $1000 limit or even $500, get rid of it! as fast as possible!

If you don't have the money to buy something then don't buy it! only if your serious about quitting gambling...

And if you do, do balance transfers for goodness sake close the accounts of the credit cards that have been wiped!
