Gambling through google play

Hi guys first time on here and was wondering if anyone has any information abouting baning myself through google play so i cant make any more purchases can i call them? Should i talk to my bank? I have had a lobg time gambling problem that started with pokie machines i do attend a ga meeting and haven't had a bet on a pokie machine or any thing else for nearly 8 years but recently in the last 12 months i can spend 100s of $$ playing onlinr games and waste hours and hours of my life i have began to go back to my old feelings of being antisocial and not sleeping properly and just feeling down i do have the tools to help my self but self exclusion helped me previously if anyone can please help me with preventing me from making purchases on google play i would appreciate it i have tried closing my account but just make a new one i have removed my bank accounts but returned and put them on again thanks

Sorry i can't be much help with your question.

Have you tried to contact Google directly about this?

Yes, it's also a good idea to ask what your bank can do.

Thanks for sharing Shelly,

Thanks for sharing Shelly, happy you are here



being antisocial and not sleeping properly and just feeling down

I was very antisocial when i was gaming. This was partly a result from gaming, i didnt have the social momentum to chill in social situation. The other part was thant being antisocial was a way for me to isolate myself so i could play more.

Considering banning i dont know how you could do that. But i would say this, banning is probably not enough, u work in recovery also, which u might already be doing. 

Keep coming back <3
