I had never gamble before so I don't have any specific advice on this. I, myself have addiction on comics and korean dramas but I find this is only a temporary relieve on the feeling of boredom, reliving hurts and emptiness inside. I only saw few people experiences with gambling and it was awful (from relatives experience). But maybe how you can stop it if you know what triggers you to gamble in the first place and work on it day by day with support group who accept you for who you are. You need help from supportive friends for this..

Can I ask why do you gamble in the first place? Is it because of financial problems? I mean I am sure this is not your first choice of hobby right (I am not saying this sarcastically...)

I'm sure it took a lot of courage to mentioned this to even strangers you don't know but
if you really want to change or help; I agree with Fairy Lucretia that you need to seek professional help and support group. Your case seems severe for addiction.

Where do you gamble? Online or in shops ? If it's online there's ways to block sites and apps, obviously you'll still have the option to go into a shop. If it gets that bad maybe ask someone to control your finances? You can get a monzo card which allows you to transfer money to it. So set up a direct debit for how much you need and only use that card then cut the rest or give them to someone else to look after who you trust

Thx for advise I think they may work 😀🥮😀😀

Are you on android ? There's an app called STAY FOCUSED that I use to stop me going on certain apps and sites. It's really good, sometimes you just need the help to break the cycle. If it's not possible when you pick up your phone then your brain might move onto something new
