Ready to Quit Gambling for Good?

Check out the plan I’ve used to quit gambling for over eight years:

INTRODUCTION

My name is Jamie. I’m married and have a wonderful family. I’m a small business owner, former college athlete, and honor student. Basically, I probably look a lot like many of your friends and co-workers.

I’m also a compulsive gambler.

For many years, I tried to quit gambling on my own. I could quit for short stretches—and even made it nine months at one point—but would eventually relapse and end up in even worse condition than before financially and emotionally.

Now, I haven’t gambled since July 15th of 2010.

I created this website and podcast as a resource to help address the growing issue of compulsive gambling. It’s not only for those struggling with gambling addiction personally, but also for loved ones and others that help compulsive gamblers as therapists or advocates.

I’ll share what I have learned over the past seven years that has made it easier for me to quit gambling and hope you can learn from my struggles.

SITE GOALS

ENCOURAGE TREATMENT

My #1 goal is to help those with a gambling problem get on the path to recovery. Problem gambling is a treatable disorder that doesn’t need to ruin lives.

BETTER CAMPAIGNS

As a marketer myself, I would like to see improvements made to gambling awareness and prevention campaigns that increase their effectiveness.

SHARE BEST PRACTICES

In sharing the things that have worked for me, I hope to provide inspiration and education on how others can also quit gambling.

INCREASE AWARENESS

Problem gambling is a growing problem, yet very few people seem to recognize the devastation it can cause on a family.
