Hi @King45 ,

It can such a difficult time tackling a gambling issue.

As @How the F did I get here said, gambling counselling can be really helpful at this time and also cutting your access from money.

Self-exclusion is another option you could look at. Figuring out your urges and trigger times and finding other activities that you enjoy to substitute gambling.

Well done!! Keep pushing!
Like you say money problems still exist but the AREN'T getting WORSE! They can only get better over time with no gambling.
You can do it!

I am sorry to hear that you have had a relapse King45.
I know what it's like to feel like you can't shake the addiction off. I felt that way 16 months ago, now I am free from this horrible addiction and live a happy life.
As hard as it is to pick yourself up and start again, please believe, you can do it! There is a light at the end of the tunnel for you.
Here if you need to chat mate

Hi King45,

It can be tough to recover from a relapse but remember that every time you do, you get stronger. Try and put up some barriers for your gambling such as some mentioned earlier in the post.
You also said that you are seeing the big wins on YouTube. I personally went through my browsing history and deleted all the past videos and searches. I found this was good because it took away the constant bombarding of the videos and allowed me to enjoy it without having the videos come up
I also highly recommend self- exclusion as I found this helped me immensely.
Keep fighting the fight.
stay strong buddy.
Keep busy. maybe volunteer, exercise, walk the dog, take up a hobby such as colouring or drawing, or even meet someone for a coffee and chat.
I myself have been trying to quit for a few years but I can tell you that life is amazing when gambling reduces down.
Yes you may have a rough time now but believe in yourself because I believe in you. you can do it.
All the best in the quest for your stress and joyful life

We're here for you.
Keeton
