I consider he need to attempt Gambler’s Anonymous if he hasn’t currently. I’ve sat in on a meeting and it seems like a wonderful system. It seemed to be operating for most of the individuals at the meeting. When you speak, you commence by saying your name and when your last bet was. Most of the people’s final bets had been years ago, so I take that as a sign that going there operates. Plus I am certain they could answer your query about hypnosis.
As for the hypnosis, my guess is that there’s nothing to lose by trying it, it can’t do any harm to you. It is a genuine state of thoughts, equivalent to the dream state and the meditation state, so there’s a likelihood it’ll function. It possibly functions for a percentage of individuals (how massive a percentage, i would not know).
Depending on which game or games he’s hooked on, he may well need to have to adjust his viewpoint on why/how he’s losing. Games that mix skill and luck present a unique challenge to someone attempting to quit. You may win some nights and feel it was since of ability when genuinely it was luck. Or you might lose considering it was negative luck when genuinely it was undesirable playing on your part. Or there’s the case of the player who actually knows how to play effectively, but basically can’t put it into practice. These players are unable to manage their feelings and impulses whilst playing, and so their impulses do the playing instead of their brains. This is specially common on the internet, exactly where cash is mere digits on a screen and bets are mere clicks of a mouse.
If his vice happens to be poker, i play for a living and wouldn’t thoughts speaking about the game, the mental pitfalls, and gambling in general. Shoot me an email if you want my immediate messenger.
I believed of adding a clarification just before posting, and now i see i must have. Nowhere in my post did i suggest he need to get greater at what ever game it is, or discover to handle his impulses even though playing (but i feared some may misinterpret it as such). These players I was talking about, would surely be much far better off quitting altogether. Gambling is one region exactly where, “If at 1st you do not succeed, try, try once more” does NOT apply. By the time a issue gambler would learn to win (if it really is a game feasible to win), he’d currently have gone broke many instances more than. Gambling merely is not meant for every person.
Even though i am clarifying, I did not offer you my msn so I could give the guy lessons in the game…it was so that perhaps I could attempt to make him comprehend some factors such as what I stated above.
You and i have given the exact same appropriate answers to a handful of concerns, pdq, so when in doubt, assume I am saying anything you agree with, heh.
