You may also be able to receive face-to-face assistance if you contact the Health Department or get a referral from your GP.
Gamblers, Family and Friends in Recovery (GFFR) is a virtual support network facilitated by Zoom meetings.

All bookmakers have to comply with our policy on self-exclusion; they must assist anyone who wants to be refused service in the future. Anyone who wants to make a commitment to stop gambling by effectively "barring" themselves from a set of premises can do so by filling out a Self Exclusion Form (available for download below). Any licensed bookmaker who does not co-operate with a self-exclusion request is in breach of their licence conditions, which would be a matter that the Commission would take very seriously.
