Is Gambling becoming a serious financial problem for you?

Read on… find out how Hypnosis to stop gambling puts you back in control.

At first you think it’s just a flutter. A bit of fun! Few dollars here and there…

You convince yourself you can handle it.

You get hooked…

Stop gambling hypnosis in SydneyYes, you get hooked on the “high” from the adrenaline rush and the emotional high you got as you chased the next big win.

Once you are hooked; no matter if it is sports gambling; poker machines; or TAB horse racing; or the casinos; it’s hard to break free. Gambling becomes a bad habit that is difficult to break by willpower alone. This is where hypnosis for stop gambling can help.

If you are a person with a compulsive addiction to gambling, you soon discover that as the initial adrenaline rush declines, your urge to gamble becomes far greater just to get the same “high.”

In many instances you chase your losses, mistakenly believing that if you continue gambling, you will eventually win back your money.

A vicious cycle develops. As the addiction urge grows in intensity, your ability to control the urge is weakened.

Sadly, gambling soon becomes a compulsive addiction that you can’t control. It is now controlling you… emptying your bank account.

Even though you know all this, you’re still finding it difficult to give up.

Well, you are not alone.

Gambling addiction can happen to anyone

Many people who develop a gambling addiction are responsible, even dependable people. However, some life situations or emotional triggers or avoidance can lead them to be more susceptible to gambling, such as:

  • Emotional issues,
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Social gambling with friends
  • Relationship problems
  • Work related stress
  • Depression, low moods
  • Loneliness, boredom
  • Retirement, lack of activity or interests
  • Other addictions, such as drinking etc

Here are 9 indicators of gambling problems hypnosis can help with

People who are most likely to have a gambling problem will experience at least some of the following symptoms:

  1. Increased frequency in thinking about gambling
  2. Emotional excitement, chasing the next win
  3. Increasing desire to gamble when upset or stressed
  4. Compulsion to gamble even after losing money
  5. Unsuccessful attempts to control the urge
  6. Agitation and irritability when trying to stop
  7. Lying to hide gambling losses
  8. Borrowing or stealing money to spend on the habit
  9. Relationship or work problems because of gambling

Many people say they managed to stop gambling for a short time. But they took it up again because they become bored or irritable or difficult to live with. Hypnosis is of help in breaking the triggers and compulsive habits associated with gambling.

Poker machine gambling addiction

Look around any pub or club today and you will find people from all walks of life “playing” the poker machines. But for a majority this is no simple form of playing for fun, it’s unwittingly gambling away their hard earned money. Business people, managers, office workers, tradesmen and pensioners; compulsively gambling away on the poker machines.

People spend a vast amount of money chasing the next win, or trying to recoup their losses. Others do it out of boredom or loneliness; to avoid being at home alone.

There are a large number of poker machine gambles that don’t even have enough money for food, but instead they feed the poker machines.

TAB a Horse betting addiction

Some punters say they enjoy a flutter 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.

Usually every race starts off with an adrenaline rush. Cheering loudly in the hopes they’ve picked the next big winner. But, unfortunately picking losers on the race track is more the norm.

Casino gambling addiction

Casinos, Las Vegas style, are very well known for their roulette wheels and large betting stakes on card poker games. They attract the big crowds, with big bets and Hollywood style dreams of winning a huge amount of money. Many of those dreams are shattered, because the big losses are more common and end up making people go broke.

It’s hard for the compulsive gamblers to wake up from the seemingly glamorous, big dreams, that pull the wool over their eyes, Like in a bad dream or a nightmare, the gamblers find themselves time and time again, betting away their hard earned money.

Online gaming and sport betting addiction

Sadly, gambling addiction of any kind is known to cause financial ruin, including online and sports betting. 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 gambles in debt. They borrow money hoping to pay it back with the next big win.

Does failure to stop gambling affect you emotionally?

Yes! Compulsive gambling not only affects you financially but also emotionally. Issues with 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;

  • guilt
  • shame
  • dispair
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • dishonesty
  • lying, secrecy
  • low self-worth
  • low self-confidence
  • lack of control over finances

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. You feel guilty for keeping it a secret.

Subsequently, you end up feeling even worse than before. Your trust in your willpower and your self-worth is eroded.

You’ve been there, you’ve done that.

Now you are over it…

Unfortunately people say that the gambling addiction drains their wallets very quickly. It’s like flushing money down the drain.
