Habitual gambling is often called an addiction, but actually it is a compulsive habit. It is the 'compulsive' bit which is the nuisance, because the gambler feels literally compelled to repeat the behaviour which makes it seem out of control. In reality it is only outside of their conscious control (willpower). Their Subconscious is controlling it fine, and just doesn't realise that it is causing a problem!
The Subconscious doesn't deal with money. It knows what money is, but tends to regard it as a token which can be exchanged for something else: tobacco, alcohol, food or perhaps to continue playing the roulette machine. What the Subconscious does not know is that this is actually the money you owe Dave, or the money for the rent... Only the conscious mind knows that. Does the reckless gambling behaviour start to make more sense now?
Gambling games are cleverly designed to manipulate the way the human mind works: to induce a trance-like state and then keep you playing until you run out of tokens to play with. When you snap out of trance, the conscious mind reckons up the cost... oh no.
Here's the good news: through hypnosis I can explain to your Subconscious mind that this only appears to be a game. It is actually a sneaky way of taking all your money off you and it shouldn't be allowed because even when you win you never get to keep it: it always goes back into the system - if not today, then tomorrow. Over years, this can amount to truly painful losses.
