Y cant i stop
Dear Alex,

We have all been in the position you are in now and admiting you have a problem and coming to this site is a great first step. First and foremost i would definatley get yourself to a local meeting, walking throught them doors for the first time is daunting but believe me its not as bad as you may fear. When i first walked throught the GA doors i was nervous as hell but as for the first time i had someone to talk to who listened and knew what i was going through, you are just as much help to us that attend as it will be to you! Im sure you will recieve a warm welcome and sound advice.

If you can trust the people around you to keep hold of all access to money you have then it is worth doing, this may not stop you gambling but it will limit the damage you can do, at the end of the day if we want to gamble we will find a way but the key is to put as many barriers in place as possible, firstly to make it harder and secondly delay us gambling which will hopefully make us think of what we are about to do adn allow us time to come to our senses. This is what i have done and it has helped immensley. Getting your self to a meeting will also aide you in so many ways as it did with me, i recieved great advice and as i went on i dreaded to gamble and having to tell fellow members i had failed, or being spotted going into a bookies by a fellow member again barriers in place to make us think. Another good tip for online gambling is a peice of software thats blocks gambling sites, once installed it wont let you go to any online gambling sites.

Abstaining from gambling is not easy, but it is possible, put as many barriers up as possible and open up to the people in your local meeting. Be true to yourself and the people around you, if you want it bad enough you will suceed.

All The Best
