    Just noticed this thread again, what about just straight up banning yourself from all the gambling sites for 12 mo+? In Sweden there is such a thing, and there's no way to lift it.
    I think it works the same in the UK.

    I'll take a look. Thanks.

    On everything mate, the most on the slot machines. I've been playing poker, roulette, slot machines, online gambling with btc, with cards, table, sport tickets...
    I'm honestly doing good right now and I don't have problem with gambling.

    Thanks for your advice.

    You could be proud of yourself! You ever thought about going to see therapist? I am not an expert by any means, but other life problems are root for addictions. Keep it going, you are doing good job mage :)

    I'm proud of myself because successfully I quit with gambling and things are going to better, but still have few bad habits which I need to quit with them. I was thinking about visiting therapist because I think i really need it and i'm depression long time and have a lot of negative thoughts, but I'm not sure if it's worth to go here in my city [Tier 3 Country] because i think nobody here is big professional therapist so really I'm not sure.

    Thanks

    Hey there!!!

    When I was opening this thread to beat addiction and stop with gambling, my goal was to not play for 2 months in a row.

    Today - I can say that close to 2 months and 10 days without any kind of gambling.

    Definitely finally I can say that my addiction is gone.. I don't have any thoughts or will to ever gamble again, especially on the VLT machines.

    I'm happy to break this worst habit because in the past I failed like hundred of times, it was almost impossible for me to stop gamble and lose all my money for few years.

    I have still few more bad habits which I will try to break them in a time, but the last few months i got finally debt-free after a years and quited with this worst habit. I'm reading now and thinking about different ideas.

    I have never seen a person who is rich from the results of playing gambling or have any benefit of it. Please don't get involved in gambling because that will destroy you like a person and will take everything from you. The most important that will damage your mind and kill you psychically.

    Thank you a lot for your support guys, opening thread on BHW and reading all your tips helped me a lot to quit with gambling! :)

    it is easy you just need dopamine 3 antagonist and you will stop gambling directly,
    halopiridol medication will be totally fine for you, she will block the urge to gamble from you think.

    What I am most interested in: How did your addictions begin in detail? Did it come after the first win? If so, how big was the win?

    Thank you for your support mate!

    If you have seen my last update I achieved my goal and for more than 2 months I haven't gamble. I was not using any therapy, I changed my thinking about it and that helped me a lot.
    Thank you for your tip, actually i break my addiction and I haven't played for more than 2 months!

    I'm not sure how my addiction begin mate, but I remember as a young kid (12 years old I think) I started to play soccer tickets. Later I had success with IM and earned a lot of money, that's when I started to go to Casinos to play roulette and machines. As I remember I never had big win, but a lot of times i lost a lot of money. I remember one of my biggest loses was August 30 2017 when I lost more than $3000 in one day playing roulette, blackjack, poker, machines. Also I lost about 30+ BTC gambling on satoshimines and bustabit.

    The addiction never leaves us, unfortunately, just try to never let yourself get near any things that can trigger it again, even in smoking you need to dont smoke for more then 7 years to say that you quit it. Massive congrats on your 2 months, keep it up, just dont go not even near the casinos or anything like that. whenever your thinking about it do something else. Remeber that now you are in control, you can control this sh*t, just like a car, keep it on the road, dont begin to play with it because you can end up hitting the tree without you even realising.

    Thank you mate!
    Yeah mate, correct - 30 BTC... The only thing that i regret the most is losing that BTC just some time before BTC started to jump and goes to the moon.
    I Was thinking about saving them in my wallet because I had cash but i found bustabit and I lost all of them there. I'm not sure if ever I will have big chance like that...

    That is true bro! I'm little happy because in the past I was not able to stop for few days in a row, but now more than 2 months and half without playing on them... And I hope never again.

    Thank you!
