You are in the right place. Read around the site. Read the forums and the advice that has been given to other people.

If I had only one piece of advice to give it would be – take your recovery as seriously as you took your gambling. Do everything and I mean everything you can to stop and stay stopped.

If someone suggests something and you feel resistance – look at what is going on. Why not try GA, why not put a blocker on your phone, why not pass on your financial dealings to someone else. There may be good reasons for not doing these things – but often it is the gambling wanting to be stronger than the recovery.

I tried everything – counselling, hypnotherapy, acupuncture, meditation. Some things worked better than others. Some I stuck with and some I dropped – but anything that was suggested then I had a go at. That was the committment to myself.
