Relapse - Iphone Block  


Good morning all


Unfortunately I recently relapsed after over six month gambling free.


I have had everything in place with my three pillars and ensuring I cannot access money or gambling.

Throughout, I have been using Gamban on both my laptop and iPhone.

The Windows block has been perfect but unfortunately I have been plagued with issues with the VPN for my iPhone via Gamban.

I am very keen to get back onto road to recovery and am in contact with Gamcare counselling again but my big concern is the block on my iPhone.

Has anyone has any experience with any others? I am looking at BetFilter currentlty.

Any advice is much appreciated.

Have you used BetBlocker? I found it encouraging.

Have you gone to gamstop and blocked all uk licensed sites?

Maybe contact Apple and see if they could help you get around it

I'd like to know more about your six months not betting. Did you just put blocks in place or did you go to GA or do anything else?

Hi I have found loopholes in most of the devise blockers , I found actually phoning my internet provider the best option , they block all gambling sites , if you have 4G however you need to either cancel it or do the same with your mobile phone providers . I received a mobile phone upgrade a few months ago , with a new provider , I have exploited the fact I don’t yet have the restriction with my new provider and since managed to blow my savings 3 year of being GF and am now back to week one , the restriction is now in place .
