How do you get addicted to gambling?
At first you think: “Oh, it’s just a flutter. A bit of fun!”. Later you convince yourself its just a “few dollars” here and there…” You convince yourself ‘its no big deal’ you can handle it. Before you know it you’re hooked…
Yes, you get hooked on the “high” from the rush of adrenaline and dopamine while you are chasing that next big win.
Once you’re hooked, be it poker machines; TAB horse racing; the casinos; or online sports gambling, it’s really hard to break free.
Gambling addiction causes financial problems
Has Gambling become a serious financial problem for you? Does your bank account resemble a train wreck?
Gambling is a bad habit that’s difficult to break by willpower alone. This is where hypnosis for stop gambling can help.
A compulsive gambler discovers that as the “adrenaline rush” declines, the urge to gamble becomes stronger”
While you keep betting, you keep chasing your losses. Mistakenly believing that if you continue gambling, you will eventually win back your money. But even when you’re losing, your body is still producing an addictive cocktail of adrenalin and dopamine.
Compulsive Gamblers get a high even when they lose!
People often think that gambling is about winning. But compulsive gambling addicts get a dopamine “buzz” even when they are losing.
A vicious cycle develops!
As your addiction grows in intensity, your ability to control the urge is weakened.
Sadly, gambling is a compulsive addiction you can’t control. It’s now controlling you… emptying your bank account.
Hiding your gambling addiction? Pretending it doesn’t exist?
Unfortunately, you know there’s a lot more at stake, than just gambling. You’re secretive, you hide the truth about your gambling losses. You feel guilty for keeping it a secret.
Even though you know all this, you still find its difficult to stop.
Well, you are not alone.
Gambling addiction can happen to anyone
Many people who develop a gambling addiction are responsible, even dependable people. However, life’s stressful situations or emotional trauma can be a trigger. Vulnerable people are susceptible to gambling for reasons such as:
- Social activity – gambling with friends
- Emotional issues or trauma
- Stress and anxiety
- Relationship problems
- Work related stress
- Depression – low moods
- Retirement, – lack of activity or interests
- Addictions – such as binge drinking etc
Here are 9 gambling problems hypnosis can help you manage
Compulsive gamblers will experience at least some of the following symptoms:
- Increased frequency in thinking about gambling
- Greater desire to gamble when upset or stressed
- Emotional excitement, chasing the next win
- Compulsion to gamble even after losing money
- Unsuccessful attempts to control the urge
- Agitation and irritability when trying to stop
- Lying to hide gambling losses
- Borrowing or stealing money to spend on the habit
- Relationship or work problems develop because of gambling
Some people manage to stop gambling for a short time. But they take it back up again. Maybe because they became bored or irritable or difficult to live with. Hypnosis can help break the triggers and compulsive habits associated with gambling.
Gambling addiction to Poker Machines
Look around any pub or club today and you will find people from all walks of life “playing” the poker machines.
But for a large majority, this is no simple form of playing for fun. They are unwittingly gambling away their hard earned money.
Business people, managers, office workers, tradesmen and pensioners; compulsively gamble money away on the poker machines.
For example, some people spend a vast amount of money chasing the next win, or trying to recoup their losses. Others do it out of sheer boredom. Some suffer from loneliness; they avoid being at home alone.
Unfortunately, a large number of gamblers don’t have enough money for food, but instead they feed the poker machines.
TAB and Horse betting addiction
Punters say they enjoy a flutter or two on the horse races. But for many it’s not simply a flutter, it’s a full blown obsession.
TAB is the most frequented venue for the track racing, be it for bets on horses or dog races.
Every track race starts off with an adrenaline rush. Cheering loudly hoping they’ve picked the big winner. But, unfortunately picking losers on the race track is more the norm.
Casino gambling addiction
Casinos, Las Vegas style, are well known for roulette wheels and high betting stakes on poker games. Casionos attract big crowds, big bets and Hollywood style dreams of winning huge amounts of money.
Frequently, those dreams are shattered. Because the big losses are more common and end up leaving you broke.
It’s hard for the compulsive gamblers to wake up from enticing dreams that pull the wool over their eyes. Instead, Casino gambling is a bad dream or a nightmare. Unwittingly, gamblers find themselves, time and time again, betting away their hard earned money.
Online gaming and sport betting addiction
Sport betting and online gambling addiction is known to cause financial ruin.
Because online betting is available anywhere, anytime 24/7, it is the most accessible and in many instances the most addictive.
Hiding the gambling problem becomes more difficult for compulsive online gambling addicts.
Online gamblers become blind to just how much they are overcommitting themselves. Overspending on large bets will put many gamblers in debt. They borrow money hoping to pay it back with the next big win.
Stop gambling addiction today!
Stop flushing money down the drain.
Stop feeding the poker machines.
Forget about TAB, horse racing or sports betting.
Compulsive gambling affects you, both financially and emotionally.

Below graph shows just how much money is spent on Gambling each year in Australia. More than 12 Billion dollars on Poker Machines alone and another 5 Billion on Casino gambling.

Does failure to stop gambling affect you emotionally?
Yes, it does! Compulsive gambling affects you, not only financially but also emotionally. Issues caused by a gambling addiction put a strain on work and family relationships. Repeated attempts and subsequent failures to stop gambling will frequently lead to emotional problems such as;
- low self-worth
- low self-confidence
- lack of control over finances
Do you feel out of control?
There’s a lot more at stake here than just gambling itself. Every time you fail, you reinforce that failure. You hide the truth from others about your gambling losses. No doubt you feel guilty for keeping it a secret.
Similarly, people often say that their gambling addiction drains their wallets very quickly. It’s like flushing money down the drain.
Subsequently, you end up feeling even worse than before. As a result, you feel drained emotionally and financially.
Along the way your trust in your self, your willpower and self-worth is eroded. As a result your stress levels go through the roof.
You’ve been there, you’ve done that. Are you ready to stop?

Frequently asked questions:
Do I swing a watch to put someone in a trance?
Funnily enough, no. I don’t swing a watch to put you in a trance or make you do weird things. Forget about what you’ve seen on stage shows or Hollywood movies.
Is Hypnosis Mind Control?
Being in hypnosis is not mind control. Rest assured, being hypnotised is not being put under. That’s because hypnosis is a natural mind phenomena which primarily connects you to your inner intelligence.
The experience of a hypnotic trance is a calm, safe state of mind. One that you naturally go in and out of daily. Trance is a deeper kind of inner absorption, mindfulness and concentration.
How will you know if you were hypnotised?
Simply put, when you are hypnotised you are not in some sort of a weird or foreign state. Even when you are hypnotised you are still aware of what’s being said to you. You are not asleep.
When you are hypnotised you are relaxed and aware, yet more responsive to suggestions.
What does hypnosis feel like?
Majority of people say hypnosis and trance feel very familiar. That’s because you experience different states of hypnosis daily, but you don’t even realise it.
While you are in hypnosis your attention is so focused (think of driving a car) that distractions are temporarily blocked out or ignored.
Does hypnotherapy really work?
Hypnotherapy works when you have a strong desire to make changes.
For example; if you are keen to stop gambling or you are keen to stop smoking, than hypnotherapy can work for you. But it will not force you into becoming a non-smoker or non-gambler against your will.
In other words, hypnotherapy really works, when you are committed to quitting limiting beliefs, bad habits and compulsive behaviours.
Situations when hypnotherapy does NOT work?
If you are not ready or willing – hypnotherapy is not going to work. It doesn’t go against your will. You can’t be forced into hypnosis. Similarly you can’t be forced into doing anything you don’t want to do.
This is why hypnosis is not an ideal choice for people who are “not committed” to it. For example; half hearted New Year Resolutions to quit smoking rarely work. Same as being talked into quitting by friends or family. Referral from a GP will not produce desired results, if the patient is not ready to stop.
When is hypnotherapy NOT recommended?
Hypnotherapy is not recommended for patients who are suffering with hallucinations or psychotic symptoms and delusions. Similarly, hypnotherapy sessions are not suitable for people who are under the influence of narcotics, drugs or alcohol.
Are hypnosis improvements quick and permanent?
Its important to emphasise that hypnotherapy is the start and not the finish of an inner process. Keep in mind that hypnosis is not a magic wand and results don’t always happen overnight.
Give yourself a chance!
Recognise that positive behavioural changes and mental health improvements will continue, for quite some time, after the sessions are done.
Stop the gambling addiction fast!
That’s right, NO more money down the drain. And NO more feeding the poker machines.
Forget about TAB, horse racing or sports betting.
Compulsive gambling affects you financially and emotionally.
You’ve been there, done that. Now you’re over it.
You are not stuck. Your are just committed to certain patterns of behaviour. Because it helped you in the past. Now the behaviour is more harmful than helpful. The reason you can’t move forward is because you keep applying the same old formula to a new level of your life. Change the formula to get a different result. ~ Emily Maroutian
