no, it can't help, it might just give you excitement when you are back in the internet when you stay away from internet without other reasons and just trying to forget gambling... maybe it could help if you stay away from internet because you have a day job and that needs more of your attention than gambling...

I usually stay away from gambling by mining and keeping other online projects going so that I don't think anything much of gambling. I spend anything on gambling as rarely

as possible. If I start to lose, I cash out and say screw it all. I sometimes invest a little and if I see some loss, out it comes.

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.

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 :/

If you let people around you know the problem they will help.

people are more understanding than most of us think.

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.
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.

"people around you" are not strangers, they are close to you. and of course yourself is not a stranger, it's really close to you. talk about your problem to a complete stranger, or even a group of strangers, is good, and is used a lot.


I agree

many people do it to overcome its problems

it's a popular therapy, it appears so many times on movies, tv shows, books. it must be effective to become that popular. i thought it's weird at first but i have changed my mind.

Well its all about self control,i had payed forex,sports bets ,casinos ,i lost almost into all of them,the thing were i took the risk with the money i played andwell i hit my self later and stoped wasting the money i earned with the most, nowadays i invest at some games and projects that sounds a bit fair.

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.


Sure i agree with you but  gambling or investing,being a small diffeence between,the thing and main rule that the most dont follow never is dont invest more then you can afford to loose,soo i keep gambling but on my case investing where i believe has potencial and can grow.We all wanna profit and get more money soo we take the risk always,doing a research will help to avoid  a loss.

I heard somewhere that addiction comes from a lack of familial and friendly support. I guess one option is to associate yourself more with friends and family, to see if that can distract you from your habit of gambling. Hobbies, as previously suggested, can also divert your attention from gambling. You should focus on the entertainment value of gambling if you choose to continue, rather than the possibility of profiting. Perhaps that will set a threshold for stopping?

Yeah finding another hobby is a great start.
But be disciplined too. Just don't get tempted by going to gambling sites etc. It's better to stay strong and focus solely on your new hoby.

Yes you are right. It you just go away and don't seek real help you will fall into your old habit.
The best think to conquer this is with help and a strong discipline.

You should keep your BTC in Coinbase or Xapo vault with a withdrawal delay, that way you won't be able to gamble.

like the other ways, finding another hobby couldnt guarantee you to fully stop gambling, especially for people who trying to be rich. Not to be a pessimistic, but realistic.

Just think of how much you lost, then when you do get bitcoins put it in a bitcoin physical wallet and just don't use it, getting over gambling is tuff, but when you are down then better to just stop. If you can't stop there may be group services near you that can help you.

If my advice is that you should leave the gambling and eliminate all thoughts about gambling. Because it is the only way that is most effective in stopping gambling. I need to know the origin of people addicted to gambling is because they have high ambitions to be able to beat the gambling and win big, but it has a negative impact for those who don't have a good strategy and had no luck

It might work for some, but for an addicted gambler the one that is loaning money for gambling it is very difficult for him because addiction through gambling has an urge in playing it than making any profit, because in his mind he might win big with it.

That is 100% true, I guess the gambler has to understand the loss and want to quit in order to stop.

I can see why online gambling is illegal in many countries, it can really destroy a person, I was quite addicted and lost ALOT of bitcoins, but I quit and I  just keep all my bitcoins in my xapo wallet, once I have enough I will print a physical wallet and wont touch it.

Seriously? I wouldn't do that. A 48 hour delay is just too great for me Cheesy
