 Gambling Addictions

If you play at casinos and feel you are out of control at cards, slots or lottery.  If you want to change your life and live it happier and feeling free from guilt and being able to hold on to your paycheck and stay away from temptations.

The Gambling commission claims, 41% of women and 48% of men have gambled in the last four weeks, yet only 0.8% of people aged 16 or older identify as problem gamblers.

With gambling being a large part of society, it can be difficult to know when a habit becomes a problem. Many gamblers do it purely for entertainment, some for the thrill of winning, others for a little escape - and there’s nothing wrong with that. But while doing something you enjoy can be a useful stress relief and diversion from life’s problems, when it stops becoming a diversion and becomes a way of coping, it can cause more harm than good.

When you start to use gambling as a way to escape from other problems, often these issues are only exacerbated. Of course, ignoring a problem doesn’t make it go away, and unfortunately, gambling is an expensive habit. What started as a smaller stressor, can end up a big problem.

But support is available. If you’re worried about your own, or someone else’s, gambling habits, reaching out and asking for help is the brave first step to overcoming the problem.

Hypnotherapy for gambling is one method many people find effective. Through hypnosis and relaxation techniques, hypnotherapy can help the client access the deepest parts of their unconscious, and identify the triggers that led to the addiction.

Once the causes are identified, the therapist will work with the client to help them break out of the negative patterns, learn how to manage their feelings and cope with triggers long after sessions are over.

Recognising problem gambling

There’s a big difference between a person who enjoys an occasional scratchcard or bet at the races every year, and a person who can’t get through the day without gambling. While the lines can blur, there are some signs that indicate a habit may have become a problem, including:

  • You find it difficult to stop or manage your gambling.
  • You spend more money and time gambling than you can afford.
  • You are arguing with loved ones about money and gambling.
  • You have lost interest in activities you previously enjoyed, like spending time with friends.
  • You are always thinking about gambling.
  • You lie about your gambling to others.
  • You are gambling to get out of financial trouble, or gambling until all your money is gone.
  • You need to borrow money, skip bills or sell belongings in order to pay for gambling.
  • You are having to gamble larger amounts of money to get the same feeling of relief or excitement.
  • You are neglecting your work, school, family or personal needs because of gambling.
  • You are feeling anxious, worried, guilty or irritable

Hypnosis can help you get back control in your life and be happy.

Gambling is an addiction not just a habit. If you are unsure or feel you might need to find out just call.

So who would of thought shopping could be a addiction. Now after years of buying things and seeing my closet full of clothes I never wore. I came to a conclusion I have a issue with shopping. I am proud to say after seeing you I now keep my credit card in my wallet and happy to see my bills are less and I am now saving for a fun vacation. Thanks Pattie
