Yes and especially stay away from psychedelic drugs when down, thats the worst decision to make. Aim to be focussed, get to enjoy the gambling, dont chase the feature or any losses. Slots are brutal!

Have a beer and simply try to go to sleep. The money comes and goes anyway. And remember, life still goes on! Don't regret the past, focus on future and stay strong! Just fuck it - forget it!

I'd hazard every single gambler has, at one time or another, had a heavy loss session and felt like total crap. Part and parcel of the highs and (more frequently) lows of gambling.

Even if you can afford to lose it, it still stings when you plough your monthly budget in within one night. It happens though.

Agree with Guntis, get some sleep...you'll wake up with a clearer head. If it's still an issue, maybe consider exclusion?

Sound advice. What is done is done, learn from it and move on as worry and stress is not going to help you. Tomorrow is another day, start again ....

Really hope you are ok and have someone there to support you, take care x

here's some advice to help a fellow gambling addict
go on self-exclusion for a month
then afterwards take another month of self-exclusion
it really helps and it won't be as bad as before

Hi all,

We've had a sad story posted by member - code name Neon Claws, about a massive gambling loss. I have removed his thread upon his request - but some of you were beginning to give advice on either how to quit or to at least keep one's gambling in check. You can continue here. Thanks!

Surely if you’re going to give advice on how to quit/reduce gambling readers should be directed to a new site which isn’t littered with gambling ads/affiliate links and posts about gambling.

While it’s great trying to address the problem, and I commend you for that. Keeping someone on a site who has a gambling problem littered with Gambling related ads is essentially the same as telling someone who’s addicted to drugs to stop/reduce taking drugs and then leaving them in a room full of drugs.

I understand that your post is well meaning but so is this thread.
A guy doesn't go into a tobacconists to ask for directions to the nearest gym and expect to be told to feck off unless you buy something from here.
He is being given advice. There are many people outside the shop trying to point him in the right direction

One thing that's going to help me stop gambling at the local pubs is someone followed me home after seeing me pull out a big chunk of winnings and tried to jump me.
I'd noticed them scoping me most of the night and they'd previously tried to 'give me a lift home'.
Smashed a bottle over their head and they legged it but still enough to keep me away for a good while.
