Hi spraggy2014,

It sounds like you have an iphone. If that's the case, you should delete all apps, including the app store. Then replace your current borwser with K9. This is an alternative borwser you can find on Google. It has child protection settings and it would block you form accessing gambling sites. It is important that you uninstall any other borwsers once you have K9 in place. Also, ask someone to set up the password for you.

A more drastic measure would be to ask you bank / credit card providers to remove your online banking facility so you can't do any online transanctions.

I hope tha thelps. Please, do contact an advisor if you are still struggling with gambling urges and you want to stop. Perhpas, you could benefit from counselling, which we do provide free of charge.

Best wishes,
