    These are all helpful ways to controlling our gambling urges and they do work, however, in my experience it is absolutely vital that we nip those desiring thoughts in the bud before they take root...James 1:14,15. This is a strategy in itself and a very important one. With me, if I dwell on those thoughts over a period of time it is just inevitable that I will punt. Please, deal with these thoughts straightaway, my friends. Use self-talk, acknowledge them and have some sort of response. Otherwise, in my experience, it doesn't matter what you do other times, you will crash. We just have to deal with those thoughts and I know, they are bloody insidious. But we can beat them, and we can make it a practice to do so. This will become part of us and we will prevail. All the best with all our lives
