Steps to reduce gambling
The first thing is to decide to get help - you can then work out whether you are ready to stop or just want to control your gambling better. Many people just want to control their gambling, but then decide to stop completely.
Although there is no substitute for professional help, here are some simple and practical measures to reduce gambling:
1. Limit the amount of money you spend gambling.
2. Reduce the amount of time and days that you gamble.
3. Don't view gambling as a way of making money.
4. Spend time doing other activities (134).
