Practical controls to stop gambling
Here are some practical controls that can help put barriers between you and gambling.
Install an adblocker to help reduce the amount of advertising you see online. Search online for 'best adblockers' to find the right adblocker for you. This type of software is usually free.
Install gambling-specific blocking software such as gamban on all phones and computers you have access to. You may need to pay for this software.
Delete all gambling apps from any phones and tablets you have access to.
Unsubscribe and unfollow
Unsubscribe from any emails you receive from gambling companies, and unfollow gambling sites on social media accounts such as Facebook and Twitter.
Other self-exclusion services
If you also gamble offline, it's a good idea to self-exclude from other types of gambling too. See other self-exclusion services.
