Why Stop Gambling?

 

Proof That Gambling Has Stopped

 

You may be asked to demonstrate gambling has stopped. Bank statements clear of gambling transactions are an example.

 

Where gambling addiction has been serious, further proof may be required. You might be asked to show you obtained external support.

 

This isn’t done to judge you. It’s a showing a duty of care to you. The solution provider wants to know you can make the solution work.

 

This might apply in respect of starting a trust deed. It might apply with debt arrangement schemes (DAS).

 

Help With Stopping Gambling

 

The NHS provides an online questionnaire. It reveals whether you might have an addiction. Take the questionnaire here. This NHS page suggests various sources of help and support.

 

There might be local services that can help you. Your GP may be able to refer you to local services.

 

Advice and support is available from Gamblers Anonymous Scotland and Gamcare.

 

Getting Debt Advice

 

Even if you’ve gambled recently, get debt advice now. We’ve helped many people that have gambling debts. They’ve gone on to enter trust deeds, for example.

 

You won’t get judged and any chat is confidential. A plan can get agreed to move towards an effective debt solution.

 

Delay in getting advice (and support) usually makes matters worse.
