A client came to see me . He told me that he couldn't go past a betting shop without going in and placing a bet. And it wasn't a problem for him until such time he was gambling away his earnings and it was affecting his family!
The gambler is always looking for the next win, because winning makes them feel good. Gambling only becomes a problem when the gambler can no longer afford to gamble.
If you are a gambler then hypnotherapy can help you deal with the emotional connection to gambling and help you break the addictive behaviour.
