Hypnosis for stop gambling puts you back in control
Gambling becoming a serious financial problem for you?
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…
Once you are hooked; no matter if it is sports gambling; poker machines; or TAB horse racing; or the casinos; gambling becomes a bad habit that is difficult to break by willpower alone.
A person with a compulsive addiction to gambling needs to gamble more and more to get the same “high.”
You find yourself chasing your losses, mistakenly believing that if you continue gambling, you will eventually win back your money.
A vicious cycle develops as the addiction 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 wallet and your bank account.
You’re thinking, “Yes, I know… I know I need to stop gambling, but…”
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
You are not surprised to hear that many people who develop a gambling addiction are very responsible, even dependable people. However, some life situations or emotional triggers can lead them to be more susceptible to gambling, such as:
- Emotional issues, stress and anxiety
- Social activity, gambling with friends
- Relationship issues
- 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 a gambling problem
People who are most likely to have a gambling problem will experience at least some of the following symptoms:
- Increased frequency in thinking about gambling
- Emotional excitement, chasing the next win
- Increased desire to gamble when upset or stressed
- 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 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.
Pensioners in front of poker machines
Look around any pub or club today and you will find people from all walks of life gambling away, including tradesmen and pensioners; compulsively betting on the poker machines.
Some pensioners spend a vast amount of money chasing the next win, or trying to recoup their losses. Others do it out of loneliness; to avoid being at home alone.
Some pensioners don’t even have enough money for food, but instead they feed the poker machines.
Until, even to their own disbelief they find themselves time and time again, betting away their hard earned money each week.
Sadly, gambling addiction has been known to cause financial ruin.
Does failure to stop gambling affect you emotionally?
Compulsive gambling not only affects you financially but also emotionally. Those repeated attempts and failures to stop gambling can frequently lead to emotional problems such as;
- 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…
People disappointingly say that the cost of smoking and gambling drains their wallets very quickly.
