How do I stop my problem gambling?

Gambling addiction (compulsive gambling and pathological gambling) is a growing problem in the United States. Casinos, lotteries, and the availability of bookies are easier, faster, and more widespread. Internet gambling impact reaches far and wide. The good news is that Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) based Professional Treatment and Self-Help models such as SMART Recovery (Self-Management and Recovery Training) can be very helpful for gaining independence from addictions, including problem gambling. SMART Recovery is an alternative to Gamblers Anonymous (GA) as well as other 12-step programs.

compulsive gamblingSMART Recovery’s potential effectiveness for assisting individuals to find relief from gambling addiction is supported by research. The National Center for Responsible Gambling Conference, co-sponsored by Harvard Medical School’s Division on Addictions and the Gaming Industry, introduced research clearly showing CBT to be an effective way to assist individuals interested in reducing problem gambling. Studies also show a correlation between alcohol, nicotine and other drugs, as well as gambling. Problematic gambling can lead to more destructive actions such as criminal behavior (i.e., embezzlement) and, possibly, suicide.

How can SMART Recovery help me stop gambling?

SMART Recovery provides its members with tools and support that they can use to help them recover from addictive gambling behaviors as well as other negative and unwanted behaviors. SMART Recovery's 4-Point Program® is an alternative to 12 step programs, such as Gamblers Anonymous, and designed to help you overcome your problems with gambling addiction:

1. Enhancing & Maintaining Motivation to Quit – Helps you identify and keep up with your reasons to stop gambling. Why do you want to stop - what will keep you focused on that goal?

2. Coping with Urges – Dealing with urges is part of recovery. SMART has tools designed to help our members cope with urges.

3. Managing Problems – We frequently turn to our addictive behaviors (like gambling addiction) to either escape from or avoid addressing problems. SMART Recovery participants learn problem-solving tools to help them manage challenges along the way.

4. Lifestyle Balance – SMART give members skills to help balance both short and long-term goals, pleasures and needs that were once out of balance.

Why was my order cancelled?


You may have made a duplicate order. When this happens we cancel one of the orders to make sure that you were not charged twice.

At times we are out of stock of the item you have purchased and will not receive it in a timely manner, therefore we will have to cancel the order and the authorization due to the item being on back order.



I think I was charged twice - what should I do?


When an order is placed, our system will automatically authorize your card for the amount of your purchase. Sometimes, if there are any technical hiccups in the ordering process (i.e. you entered your billing address incorrectly and had to re-submit it), our system will authorize your card more than once. These authorizations are only “pending” charges and will not be debited from your account. Expect these “pending” charges to drop off your bill within 2-3 business days.




If you still see un-accounted charges on your credit card statement after 2-3 business days, please contact our Customer Service department or use the contact form on this page below.
