Another user absolutely raved about the benefits of Gamban to his counsellor and questioned why he hadn’t installed it ages ago. He hadn’t gambled online for the last three and a half weeks and “is the happiest I’ve been in three years” due to the many positive changes in a short space that have occurred. He has struggled over time with why he can’t just use willpower and “just stop.”
- Gamban was a tenth of the price of others
- It hasn’t affected his other apps and internet/ Google searches like others have
- The app icon is very discreet
- He was able to install it very quickly and it is compatible with most devices
- Hasn’t been able to “override” it like he has with other apps
- He has said that he would give it a 5/5 review
One of the many problems with online gambling, is the accessibility. Once you’ve got a gambling account, you can access it from your phone, tablet, or desktop computer, anywhere and anytime; it’s really difficult to get away from. Although many individual gambling operators provide some sort of self-exclusion, it’s only for their gambling sites and while they may stop taking your money, you can be sure another operator will be quite happy to!
That’s comprehensive coverage and Gamban reassures potential users on its website that “gamban® blocks gambling sites and ONLY gambling sites, making it the least intrusive option available.”
While researching Gamban for this article, I discovered one of the developers had battled his own gambling problem so developed the software in 2015 to help others in the same situation. They’ve deliberately kept the cost low to help those struggling with a gambling problem.
If you or anyone you know is struggling with a gambling problem don’t forget we are always here to provide help and support. While an app might help you keep away from temptation, that is only one tool in the toolbox and talking to somebody who understands will help you work towards your long term goals.
