You can do it.
Once you lose the ability to control your spending, your best course of action is to remove your access from your favorite sites. This article explains the process for the main bookmakers in the UK.
My Experience with Gambling Sites
Towards the end of 2011, I began taking advantage of risk free bets on the William Hill website. However, deleting your account is not enough as you can reopen your account at any time. Below, I will let you know my experience with each company. I made the decision to permanently disable all my online gambling accounts. While the bets were risk free, though, I found myself hooked on the spinning wheels and bonus rounds. Generally the sites will not discourage you and instead assist you if you want their help. To fully disable any access to your online account you will need to enter into a self exclusion agreement with the company involved. I read through William Hill’s responsible gambling guide and found out about self exclusion. I first tried to cancel my accounts but within a day I had reactivated them and was gambling again. I went from making risk free bets to making one off 1.00 bets until I was regularly spending 50.00 on a single spin.
Self Exclusion on Gambling Sites
Online gambling can be fun hobby if you are able to set your limits and control your spending. Good luck!
If you feel that your gambling is no longer under your control, then the option to disable your accounts for a set period of time is available. I had a talent or a knack for gambling and I took my winnings up to 600.00.
Soon, I found myself logging into my William Hill account first thing in the morning and then every fifteen minutes whilst I worked from home. The forums on the money saving site were full of people bragging about four-figure wins from these bets. I found out about these risk free bets through a very popular money saving website based in the UK. However if we were all capable of doing that, then there would be no profits for the online bookmakers.
By early January 2013, I was heavily overdrawn and realized that my gambling was no longer fun and if I was to keep my self out of trouble I would need to take some serious action.
