My goal: Just for today I will not gamble

What could get in my way?

  • Going to a restaurant, bar or pub that has VLT machines
  • Going past the casino
  • Thinking about painful memories or feelings
  • Listening to sports on the radio
  • Following the stock market in the newspaper, on TV or the Internet
  • Walking past the lottery counter

What I can do about it?

  • Find a restaurant, bar or pub that does not have VLT machines
  • Go home from work using a different route so I don't go past the casino
  • Spend the evening catching up with friends and family by phone or connect with my support person
  • Change the radio station in the car or bring a portable device to listen to music or audiobook
  • Cancel the newspaper, TV and Internet subscription
  • Ask my friends and family to help with shopping
