Give yourself timeouts from gambling

Taking timeouts from gambling allows you to:

  • have a break
  • keep track of how much you are spending
  • keep a clear mind so that you don't become overwhelmed
  • make sure that you are not becoming dependant on gambling.

If you chose to take a timeout, you can block yourself from gambling for up to six weeks.
