Before the new gambling regulations came into the UK where you could limit how much you spend, I used to put my money in a safe bank holding account where I could only withdraw it with the signature of my mother (I was single then)

You need to find a way to control your money and let people around you help.

Just find some distraction that is the best way. I hope later that more people will stop gambling.
You must find things that you like to do and that will be good and you will also save some money.

I think it's really good idea though. So you need signature of your mother to take your money, but i think it's not 100% prevent you from gambling. You can get money from your job and gambling again :/

Simple: block sites that entice you to go gambling and freeze your funds in a cold storage. In that way gambling sites would be inaccessible and you don't have to worry about spending your money because it is already in a cold storage where most of your funds are on.
Not so simple like that I think, blocking gambling sites wouldn't work if we still have an Internet access.
Would be better take a rest on surfing in the Internet for a couple weeks maybe hoping to forget gambling .

Quite true. Even if you block the sites, if you still have internet access, sooner or later you'll be tempted to unblock them. But totally turning off the internet is quite brutal. Some people make a living out of internet, how can they quit that way? That also means letting go of their income for a few weeks.
Well during the therapy  (rest from accessing internet) you need to find a way to replace that income from Internet which it could be your new occupation,  isn't it better if it work forgetting gamble activity?
There must be something to sacrificed to reach this goal "quit gambling" include have no Internet access for weeks. It's worth.
It could be hard to find a replacement for a current source of income especially for an addict. Support from relatives and friends will be needed until the addict can stand on his own two feet again.

If he family wants to be a sponsor of his addiction his family needs to be rich to do that but I think that on an addiction many gamblers tend to be alone because their families are leaving them because they don't want to be part of the expenses because of his addiction,

yup distraction, that's needed, and probably with the help of the family, specially if the addicted one is still young,,,

If you are so addicted to gambling, gamble with virtual money, as in demo-money.

For example there are many video games where you can gamble, and play with only virtual money, not real like bitcoin.



Its funny because bitcoin is also considered virtual, but it;s not, its real. Virtual would be a video game money or something like that.

Well trading is not that easy and there are still up's and downs towards it, and I think gambling is natural to people who is desperate sometimes and needs money, but some tend to enjoy it, or wants to have experiences in gambling.

The best way to stay away is just find something else. That will be good. You must find some distraction or something.
Do other things that you like to do and it will be much cheaper than gambling. Gambling is just wasted money and that is not good.

it's true. ppl are uncomfortable to confess their mistake, tend to lie to other ppl around them and lie to themselves. it just make thing worse than it should be.

since it is hobby too, you just need to find a better hobby that you like, a lot of people likes rading books or playing games, buy some games and play them, keep your minds from it and talk to friends about it

trading is technically still a gamble so what's the difference? also trading needs some skills, experience and luck to have bigger chance of getting profit while on gambling, luck is enough. i also find trading complicated. so if i were to asked, i'd rather continue gambling than on trading

That is not true, IMO. Nobody simply goes to the street and said, "Hey, I kill your cat.".
People are not comfortable to confess their mistake because they are either not close to you or just simply do not know you or just don't trust you. I, myself, are not comfortable to talk about my problems especially to a complete stranger, TBH.

Life sucks.

Investing is just another form of gambling. You are unsure if the project becomes big and have to count on the honesty of developers you're giving your money to.
