Andy Fox Posted 17 February, 2017 Share Posted 17 February, 2017 Background So okay for thoose who don't know me My name is Andy Fox, Long time gambler. Under 2016 only I rougly lost 76 grand in euro on casino. Yes you read that correct and it feels mentaly bad writing it and thats not even my worst year but I have to because this is the reality. Anyhow with this thread I want to help you conquer your gambling addiction and breaking the habbit my start and trigger to casino was actually winning a pretty large jackpot nearly 10 years ago since then I have gambled almost every day and had everything and lost everything and moore and I am not only talking about money here.Sidenote I cannot guarantee that this will work for you, because you really need to have the mentallity that you want to quit to begin with even if you can't stop you must know deep inside that this is what you wanna do, this is not good for me, this have gone way to far, I need to quit. First then can I help you with this thread to guarantee a stop to your gambling. I created this thread in the only purpose that I want to help you! yes you are not alone we are many and together we are one, we are strong and we will quit this addiction together right here and right now. I care for you who read this know that before we start with the help.Introduction Why do I spend my time writing this? I feel like this might be my goal right now to help others that having a hard time being part of change is something that rewards me alot of mental value since I feel like i'm doing something good helping others get out of the same hell as I was in. It is not funny at all and for some it's even life ending. Now when you have come this far lets start my helping program off.Step 1 Introduce yourself to the reality Realising you are either addicted or playing in a harmfull and bad way and want to quit gamblingWhen is this a good idea? -You play for moore then you can afford.-You run out of money before the end of the month because you gambled it away. -You feel like you don't care for the value of money anymoore -You are depressed and nothing really matters. -You can't stop playing even when you want to. -Gambling is controlling your life and you form everything after it. -Many other reasons.Step 2 My advice here for you is to actually block yourself from all casinos you play on now what you wanna do is go to the support and tell them you wan't to quit playing don't be ashamed allways write that you are gambling addicted and want to close your account forever. The people in the support are humans just like yourself they will most likely be glad to help you out. And don't feel ashamed you will be forgotten in a very short ammount of time since they have so many other customers to deal with. And casinos will only remember you for feeding them with moore money all VIP managers and support care for you because its their job and thats how they get their paycheck so don't feel bad ending a long time relationship with a casino. Listen carefully to this part. No matter the cause of why you are closing your account never make up lies it might make them to close your account temporarily or say that you need to speak to your VIP manager whom will at most likely give you some sort of fantastic bonus if you stay. For my program to help YOU, You will need to close ALL not a few and in the time period of forever. You need to close exactly all casinos you are playing active on and thoose casinos you have registered to but are not playing on but now might get a reason to play on. Your brain will allways search new ways of playing if you are addicted to casino. so never feel like leaving one open just in case close them all.WARNING DO NOT play one last time before you close your account. Listen to me it is very important for your own mentality that you close the account immediately without playing if you have any balance thats withdrawable withdraw it otherwise just close the account don't feel like you will loose so much that you put into the account if you feel this way you need to read step 1 again. By closing your account immediately your brain will feel like you won over your addiction and give you a very important boost in breaking the addiction.Step 3 Breaking the habbit The only way to breaking the habbit since im not joking but you will enter the casino on autopilot and allways think to yourself I will only play for this ammount and then you will loose hard and have nothing left and wonder why did I do this. By doing step 2 you will already have a small victory in the start and you will automaticly try to logon to the casinos you just closed your account on many times in the first days but the only way to actually breaking the habbit is time. Now when you have the victory in your luggage and the mentality that you wanna quit all you now need to do is make sure you do not register at any new casinos. And in that way breaking the habbit since if you wanna stop and already blocked yourself you wont really go search other casinos and register because that is one thing that your brain can actually controll while being addicted to gambling.Step 4 Make sure you seek comfort in your decision and your reality that you have a bad habbit playing casino and that you play in a destructive way. The away will be hard but it will be so much easier if you find comfort at the ones you love or people close to you. And if you feel like you are way to ashamed to tell them about this or that it might ruin your reputation or life even further know this we are here for you I am aswell Find comfort here on the forum create your own thread just find the comfort somewhere someone that you can talk to it will make everything so much easier after step 3 and prevent yourself from actually playing again.Outro Now many of you might wonder why my program does not include professional help I will tell you why right now in my own way of seeing it. I whent to get Proffesional help and for me it was something really bad, I didn't really get the help I needed because they where people that have read about addiction and gambling but never themself been in that situation so they couldnt really help me the way that I feel someone like me could have done that actually been there and done that and now I suddly had times to put on my already busy schedual wich made me feel very trapped and bad inside. I do not say that all professional help is bad and might be a way to realise that it is for real now other than that I felt like it didn't do me any good at all just the opposit. So if I can't help you with this thread do what I wrote and wait for a period of time and if you still can't stop gamble or started again then open up for going to professional help then your brain needs it to know its for real that will change your mentality further. Now you have come this far and reached the end or my program know that you will miss casino and think about it alot but the longer time you stay away the easier it will become. For me the hardest part today is watching casino streams or big wins on youtube because it really triggers that sence that I wanna play and gives me idea on how to actually win but I have finally come to the stage where I can enjoy streams and watch other play away their money or win and actually enjoy casino again without putting myself on risk again. Final words. I am finally free and I would like to thank all of you in this comunity that supported me trough hard times and I guess this is my way to pay back. This is not for everyone but for thoose who need it please don't let it go to far I am here to help you. And another thing you might wanna do is find another hobby or interest to help you go trough each and every day and get further and further from casino. For me I rented a music local and started playing in a band again writing music and watching movies playing games on my free time. Finding comfort in life is the most important thing and remember we won't be here forever so in the end it won't really matter but what you do now is what actually matters. Stay safe everyone! and once again thank you. Link to comment
