I have put together this guide as I know that for some people out there, gambling may have become something of a problem, and they may be gambling more than they should be doing and could also be racking up some huge ongoing gambling losses too.
If you are someone for example that does enjoy gambling at online casino sites, then please do be aware that if you are doing so from the UK and are gambling at any UK Gambling Commission licensed and regulated site, there are a slew of different tools that you should be making use of at those sites.
One of the most important ones is the GamStop service that can definitely help you overcome your gambling problem. You will also need to acquire the art of spotting casinos not on GamStop and then self-excluding yourself from those sites too, that however will take quite some time to achieve as with thousands of different casinos available to online player it will seem like a never ending task.
When you log into a casino account what you should initially set about doing is clicking on the deposit limits button and making sure you select an affordable amount of cash as you deposit limit and additionally making sure that you set a period of time that is suitable to you for that deposit limit to be in place for as well.
By taking that one simple step you are then going to never be at risk of getting too carried away if things are not going your way when playing real money casino games online.
You will of course find that as soon as you have reached your own personal deposit limit, you will not then be able to continue to gamble at that site until the time you selected expires. So, make sure you always use those freely available deposit limit settings.
The GamStop Service Taken Up by Many Gamblers
You should be aware of one organisation that can help you give up gambling, if that is something you have been seriously thinking about doing recently.
That is an organisation that goes by the name of GamStop, and they have a self-exclusion register that anyone can sign up to and add their details to that is shared with all gambling site operators across Great Britain.
What those operators are then required by law to do is to ensure that everybody whose names and details have been added onto the GamStop self-exclusion register is removed as a player from their sites and as such anyone who is on that register will extremely quickly find their days of being able to gamble at those sites are numbered.
Not only are they going to have their current real money accounts closed at each of those gambling sites, but if they attempt to sign up to any casino or any other type of gambling site licensed in the UK that is part of that scheme, they are not going to be able to do so.
If you therefore want a quick and efficient way to self-exude yourself from a huge number of UK based gambling sites then I do actively encourage you to sign up to GamStop and add your name onto that register, it is by the way a completely free service to make use of so you will not be charged for joining in.
Spotting Casinos Not Part of the GamStop Scheme
The more casino sites that you do self-exclude yourself from the lesser of a chance you will have of giving in to temptation when recovering from a gambling addiction problem and that can only be a good thing, so spend as much time as you can religiously contacting each casino not part of that scheme and requesting that they do not give you access to their sites as a new customer.
I would also suggest you enlist the help and support offered by each of the many other organisations who exist to offer advice and additional help to anyone affected by a gambling problem for that help will allow you to rely on those organisations if you are ever finding it hard to stop gambling.
There are of course also plenty of additional tools available to everybody that does want to give up gambling and many gambling site blocking software applications can be downloaded onto all your devices and computers that will, when fully activated stop you from accessing such sites in the future, so make sure you make use of at least one of them, to help you on your journey to stop gambling.
