Overcoming Gambling is uniquely split into 2 separate parts; How to stop gambling and how to stay stopped. I very quickly learnt we could all stop gambling for a day a week or maybe a month but it was going to take something special to keep me stopped FOREVER. It is designed for all those with a gambling problem or a gambling addiction.

We believe that Overcoming Gambling is an easy read. It treats you as an adult rather than a child as I’ve seen in some books. It has a single aim and conviction and that is that you can totally give up gambling as I did, and does not show you how to control your gambling if you can’t give up totally. It isn’t cluttered with complicated scientific or physiological theories about what is going on in your mind or body whilst gambling, although we touch on it briefly in regard to dopamine.

We sincerely hope you take the opportunity to read OVERCOMING GAMBLING.

About Philip Mawer

My name is Philip Mawer and I am the owner and publisher of this website as well as the author of Overcoming Gambling (published by Sheldon Press and available through this website, www.amazon.com or from most good bookshops). I am also the founder and creator (along with my wife) of the Gamblersaloud systematic approach to totally overcoming gambling.

I have been involved with gambling since around the age of 24 and for over 20 years it was a hugely destructive part of my life. On August 11th 2006 I placed my last bet (in a casino at Frankfurt Airport) after which time my wife created my Rock Bottom and we embarked on my recovery. Over the past 4 years we have written the book and created the system based on my total recovery in the hope we can help others with gambling addictions. Nothing within our system was introduced for the sake of it. Everything contained within our system and written in the book was and is a genuine and real part of my recovery.

5 out of 5 stars – Everyone effected by gambling needs this book! , 5 November 2017, by Cuthbertdirect – Verified Purchase

I’ve brought 4 copies of this book so far and both my husband and I (he is the gambler) think it’s a breath of fresh air! Makes total sense! We’ve given copies to families members to help them understand what we are going through. The task in it are hard to face up to but my husbands words were “this book was written for me”. It’s only early days in his recovery but this book has put us on a track that no councelling GA or other help has done in 20 years! Feeling very hopeful for the future! If you gamble and want to get your life back or are effected by someone who does gamble I cannot recommend this book strongly enough! May just have saved his life our marriage and my life! Thank you Philip Mawer!
