    To quit, take an honest inventory of what you are doing to quit. Write out a list of what you do consistently to quit.
    The length of your list will not tell the full story, but it will tell you something.

    The pyramid example is a good one because we need a solid base. Bible study and prayer are vital, but we need new activities to replace tempting activities.

    Praising the Lord is fantastic, but it loses its power if we don’t have turning from gambling thoughts as a key part of the base of the pyramid.

    Second, the Bible says: 1 Corinthians 10:7 Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written: “The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.”
    Gambling keeps us from God and it puts us in darkness which leads to depression which starts the mad cycle all over again. I read this verse almost every day to try to focus on what God wants.
    Third, consider making it a goal to work on implementing one or two of your top ten into daily life.

    Finally, develop the habit of doing everything from the base of your pyramid daily. God will see your effort. Then consider praying:

    “Father, what do You want me to do to quit?

    This is a prayer that “always” eventually gets answered. Keep working, keep praying, and you will make it. https://stoptheaddictions.com/gambling-freedom/how-to-quit-gambling/
