Insight into your recovery process
If you are struggling to talk about your gambling problems with an anonymous care provider, then the Gaming Game Loket has found a solution for that with the new forum. Here users can, in addition to coming into with the regular care providers, also share their experiences with other visitors and ask them for advice.
In addition, visitors can discuss with each other about, for example, the approach to online providers and what they could improve on this. Finally, there is also the possibility for gamblers to record a personal recovery diary. A manager of the forum explains about this:
“With a recovery diary on this forum you grant yourself and others insight into your recovery process. For yourself that is valuable to write off in the moment, and to be able to look back on it later. Others can also support you. For others it can provide insight into how a recovery process actually is. Falling and error, the difficult moments, but also the pride and happiness. ”
As mentioned earlier, the forum is not only accessible to players with gambling problems, but also for friends, family and colleagues who are hit by this. For example, the Forum gives them a platform to share their story with others, or to ask for advice for offering help to someone with an addiction in their environment.
