Get blocks in place that stop you from gambling.

Can't gamble = can't lose = can't be upset

Can't gamble = can't win = can't take those winnings and gamble again.........see above


It is the only thing that has worked for me.  It's not as simple as it sounds, but committing to do it is step 1 to a happier and healthier life 🙂

I’ve tried the blocks and I just take them off I’ve self excluded from every site and then I use a different name it’s a lot easier said than done especially when you feel like you HAVE to do it and then when you’ve done it you feel really bad I can’t explain what I feel I just wish I could STOP 🛑 just like people say
