I have read some info on Betblocker – it is a free gambling blocker and as I think it is quite new .
I know I found it hard to install a gambling blocker because when I was most motivated to do I never enough money left .
Some people might find this useful.

I just downloaded gamban and to Test it was working on my phone I tried to get into three gambling sites I have used in the past – first two were blocked – third I got on no problem .

Thank you Konj
I found it cimpletely ineffective too- the only one I have had real success with is Betfilter- although it was really complicated to get set up – it worked !30 September 2018 at 11:35 am #46221konj1978Participant
thank you for update. How it works (Betfilter) and what is the price?30 September 2018 at 12:32 pm #46222AnonymousGuest
You may also like to consider K9, which is available completely free to personal users.
It works fine and dandy, I havn‘t gambled online for over two years.14 October 2018 at 10:27 am #46223
I think betfilter starts at around 26.99 stg for three months- it’s not a lot if you compare it to how much we could gamble in that period. I don’t believe any blocker is fool-proof – it depends on how tech- savvy you are but if this one is set up right I have found it better than most (and I have tried a lot). I have tried most of the free ones and they were too easy to bypass as indeed were some of the paid ones !18 October 2018 at 4:56 pm #46224AnonymousGuest
Yes I-Did-It, I wouldn’t think any software is infallible. I don’t think a strong recovery is really dependant on the cost or vulnerability of a persons choice of blocking software.

The important thing about barriers is that they give us breathing space so we can start work on recovery – finding other thigns to fiull time and thoughts, addressing any under lying issues, working on any character traits that need addressing etc They aren’t the total answer to recovery though and if the only thing that is stopping us gambling are the barriers then we are always going to be at risk of finding a way round/over/through them19 October 2018 at 8:03 am #46226
Well put Charles – I always say a barrier gives us time to think – it takes away the automatic pilot gambling .
They are barriers – not cures !
