As a pokies gambler the biggest problem is access to money via credit cards and key cards. I keep raving on about the Australia post prepaid credit card, which I carry along with $40 cash, it gives me up to $500 on a card which I use for food, petrol, etc here's the link.

Thanks for sharing the link @Damaged_Armour

It really is a great idea. Anything to limit temptation is a step in the right direction.

I have always 'found' a way to access my account even when I have no card, thanks to cardless withdraws at ATMs. This is an a really helpful suggestion.. Thank you

Hey @Damaged_Armour , @Secret Squirrel how are things going for you? How is the weekend looking. You made some interesting comments here on the forum such as the Australia Post card that can limit spending - I have heard of a gambling card too which ultimately does the same thing - it just means that there is a limit to what one can spend and therefore putting up some boundaries and lessening the triggers perhaps - there's a great podcast about it on Life matters :
