    Flapper, you can find more information here:
    http://www.gamblingcommission.gov.uk...exclusion.aspx

    Unfortunately as it states on that page there is no single centralised list that will exclude you from all gambling sites. So you have to request self exclusion one by one at the sites that you have registered on. If you want to block them all you should look into installing GamBlock or similar software that will act as a firewall on your personal computer to prevent you accessing sites on the software's list.

    i was refeering to the National Online self exclusion scheme which some sources have advised is being implemented next month. The link you have posted relates to the existing self exclusion rules which are ineffective

    The best I can find is this draft document from last year that states a likely date of commencement of "during 2017":

    Amazingly I sleep quite well even with the bloody money that we all make from people that are desperate enough that choose to gamble.

    This selfexcluding legislative is well designed to be impotent. It is probably fine to have it, because society wants to see only one dullact after another. But it is crazy to think it might really change something. It is just another political act. Nothing more, nothing less.
    And an annoying one.

    We get it dude. You lack empathy. Try taking a psychedelic, it could help open your eyes to the real world.

    Gambling can become a disastrous addiction.
    Anything that can help problem gamblers is ok with me.
    What is really a problem and probably a fraud are all these US rehabilitation centers that cost big money and offer no solution... but that's another story I guess.
