The first step to overcoming an addiction is to admit that you have a problem. When you notice that gambling has become more than just a way to spend some time, and has become compulsive and problematic – then it’s time to do something about it.
Just like with drugs, people addicted to gambling are unable to stop even when they know that their behavior has become destructive. But it all has roots in your mind: it’s something your brain has adopted as a “must”, thanks to the self-talk that’s been keeping you persuaded that you just can’t help it, that it’s stronger than you.
Fortunately, that’s not really the case, and the same way you have developed this addiction, you can overcome it – by changing this destructive self-talk and making yourself deeply believe that you’re free from it.
These affirmations can help you with that, along with any other recovery program you’re in. Affirmations are simple sentences that you should repeat a few times a day so that your mind starts creating another thought pattern and help you break free from this addiction.
So here are your affirmations to overcome gambling. Pick a few and make sure that, when saying them, you do it like you mean it, with a strong and confident voice, and as if the change that you want to see in you has already taken place. That way your affirmations will be more effective, and you will overcome your gambling addiction more easily and naturally.
