    Just to give a brief background, biggest win £14,000 biggest loss overnight £1,300. For 2013 my routine: last day of the month wait in anticipation for my monthly paycheck to arrive at 2am in my bank a/c, clearly despite being broke for 3 of the four weeks last month, an urge to play slots, what could £50 do to my monthly payroll, a mere 2%. Now I have been playing for years since 2008 I would say, however, took a years break after massive win at fortune lounge. Know Jorn T well. 2012-13: pretty much done my wages, always winning initally that 50 converted to €1,000s in a matter of 2 hours playing Nordic new website, mainly because I have self-excluded from various websites. Clearly blew that, deposit, deposit, deposit, deposit deposit. €1,200 this is not a one off for me neither!

    Blown the lot. Skint this month, fortunately had some residual funds to pay the outgoing bills, Rent,CCs...etc but, skint, blown back now all my winnings must be 15k plus down from doing a grand a month plus few grand on CC's. On occasions $9,000 up blew the lot with Aladdins Gold reversed withdrawl at $6,000 due to slow processing times.

    Anyway I need the powers that be here assistance, I have a problem, with "online gambling. This is the only form of gambling I do. To make the situation worse, I heavily use the internet (work , but mainly pleasure films..etc) can't afford gamblock this month due to my own stupidity, however, despite talking about it for months will order it next month, if members recommend?

    I only play casinomeister accredited casinos, is there a template I can forward to each casino, or can casinomeister direct myself or help me in excluding myself from these casinos. It is very easy for someone to open up a new account.

    Clearly I wont be gambling this month now, because I am skint. However, I know this sounds ridiculous, but on the basis of my prior form in 2012-13, I will not be able to control myself. I have character traits of being a highly addictive person, whatever, I touch, if casinomeisters' wise users get my drift.

    Before I do send off: Back in 2007 Mansion Casinos had a "glitch" and my account was showing £6.5mn no compensation provided by Mansion Casinos.

    You never 'won' anything. The money had no value. All it was was an accounting figure which meant you could facilitate more gambling. The same would have happened with the 6.5 Mansion Millions, if it had been real. You've have simply bought houses/cars and invested it, feeling euphoria that you had now got gambling funds 'without consequences' and your stakes would have become higher. Your liquid cash would have gone, then the cars and properties. You'd be in exactly the same position as now, but psychologically far worse. I say this, because being reduced to nothing and having to find a job where you're taking home 1300 per month would be terrible when at the back of your mind 1300 had no value when you were wealthy. One good thing thus far.
    What you should do is download a free K9 programme, and get someone else to set the password. Put barriers in place. If you have a partner/relative pay your wages into their account, and get them to pass on 1/4 of the spare each WEEK after monthly commitments/bills have been met. This means that if you relapsed, you would only have to eat baked beans and bread for one week until your next instalment came. This limits the damage you can do to yourself in the short-term, but longer term the problem needs solving via your mind and control. I had a colleague at work once who downloaded Gamblock and it really messed his PC up, apparently shutting it down when reading the news or sports pages if a story had gambling in it or a gambling banner. It couldn't be removed and in the end he bought a new PC to get rid of it, and then started gambling again!
    There is no web-wide self-exclusion facility, and even if their were some sites know that the addict is their best customer who would spend insanely, and would soon take your cash anyway. There are so many sites you couldn't ever join them all then self-exclude. Even if you did, you may join another new one, win, and then find they don't pay you because you are self-excluded from a sister-site. The control has to come from you.
    Get someone to help, break through the 'shame barrier' and wise up. Remember, you will never win money, only stakes for your next session. Re-learn the value of the wages you work for.

    hi sorry to hear youve got problems , first thing you should be doing is sending out e mails to all the reps within all your casinos accounts here blocking you from playing of 12 months + , send out e mails to all accounts at all casinos for a ban on all accounts , get your self moved from here to restricted forum so you dont see winning screenys , move onto another hobby . i know this isnt alot but it helps remove all casino software then next month when you can afford it get gamble block , youve made the first step which i would of thought the hardest good luck in what other htings you do & i hope that you can stay well clear from it :thumbsup:

    Great advice!

    I truly appreciate the time you took to write such an articulate and well thought out solution for my ongoing situation.

    You are right I have lost the value of wages, I am good at looking after other people's money not my own. The plan, which you laid out when I can do:

    I will download K9 for sure. I know this sounds silly, but for tax reasons and keeping this hush from the powers that be, can't have monies transferred into a relatives account.

    But, this might work. Cancel my card, leave new one unknown to clever casino piggy banks with that person, so that I am none the wiser. Further aspects. I have 2 CCs maxed out paying off few hundred pounds a month gambling debts. Not much 4k. Issue is if I pay the monies off temptation to spent available funds, so I will have to do same process cancel the cc cards order new ones, give to responsible person. Bit of a cock-up this whole situation. No one would believe have a relatively sound person, can lose all their cognitive ability to manage money.

    Anyhow, this you are right will not solve the psychological underlying reasons for my irrational behaviour, how do I work on avoiding the temptations and traps, this is where I feel I struggle, when I have done a solid days work, winding down on my own.... thank you once again fellow human.

    No problem. Availability of gambling funds is of course the first hurdle, the big temptation. I don't think changing cards will help as they can soon be re-registered in weak moments. Giving them to a trusted person will help though. What I would do when you get paid is do a big monthly shop, fill the car up, pay all the debts/bills (i.e. leave the money to cover them for the month) and take the remainder out in CASH. This cannot be easily transferred to online gaming, plus it's there to remind you of what those 'invisible' figures on your casino accounts actually represent. Another good idea will be to pay your card debt each month and then REDUCE the credit limits as you do this (most online CC accounts will instantly approve an 'application' to change credit limit if it is downwards) and thus remove credit temptation.

    I would try and get gamblock. It's the only one that really works. K9 could be an interim solution, but it's very easily bypassed.

    Regardless of the software, of course it's down to you.

    Good luck!

    I've upgraded your forum account to Non-Gambler - so you only have access to the the non-gambling sections of the forum. Also, please read this page (and share it at Facebook as well): http://www.casinomeister.com/quit_gambling.php

    Hopefully that helps. Good luck!

    usually the biggest step is already taken when you admit to have a gambling "problem".....the next step is to openly seek advice which you've also done......

    now the final and the most difficult step would be to follow that well meant advice members are giving you and not fall back completely to the same Sh*t.....gud luck
