Gambling addiction is not easy to cure because many gamblers don’t even realise that they have a gambling problem. This is not because they are stupid, on the contrary most gamblers are bright people whose minds are focused too much on the routine of gambling to ever even consider the bigger picture of what impact this behavior is having on their life and their loved ones. The biggest self delusion a gambler has to deal with is that the odds are in your favor and that you will make money.
Gambling is not about the money, it is a psychological illness and it affects not only the gambler but everyone around them.
The adrenalin fueled psychological roller coaster that is gambling addiction requires firstly that the gambler realises that there is a way to break this cycle of self destructive behaviour. Willpower alone will probably not be sufficient as many gamblers constantly tell themselves and their loved ones that they are giving it up, but they go back to it once they have the money to do so. The problem rests with the subconscious mind and sometimes hypnosis is required to break that pattern of negative behaviour and replace it with positive thoughts and actions.
By addressing the problem from within the unconscious mind, you can reprogram the way you think about the whole concept of gambling.
You will probably know this already but consider for a moment the benefits of quitting gambling.

If gambling were a business, ask yourself, would I spend so many years trying to make this business work or would I find a more profitable way of making money?
Life is short, if you’re a compulsive gambler can you afford to waste any more time on this vicious cycle of self destructive behaviour?
You can beat it by taking positive action. It will mean making life changes, i.e removing yourself from the environment which encourages you to gamble. Finding something else to occupy your mind. Hypnotherapy can help you in your battle against gambling addiction by reprogramming your subconscious mind from gambler to “non gambler.”
