Gambling Advertising  


I’m really getting annoyed with the amount of Gambling adverts and sponsorship on tv shows lately. Before I had a gambling problem I never paid attention to them, however now it feels like I can’t watch the television without being bombarded with gambling promotions!

I find my Husband is more triggered by it than I am. He gets really annoyed when they come on and mutes the telly. I like that he is protective of my recovery. I don't get triggered by adverts. I get triggered by my own thoughts and feelings. I do get a bit annoyed by the ones in the papers I read cos it's been a couple of weeks since I gambled but they are still coming up. Surely by now the algorithms or whatever they are should be picking up on my other interests? Like studying and news and shopping and stuff. 

I dunno. Wish you could unsubscribe to adverts.

Thankyou for your post I agree we saw two adverts while watching an hour programme this evening and then I go on social media and ask why I am seeing a gambling advert when. I have been gamble free for nearly a week and it says because I showed an interest in plane companies or cashback sites grrrr
