100 Day Challenge

The Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation has released a new program for people who want to change their relationship with gambling – the 100 Day Challenge.

Available in app and web-based formats, the Challenge offers participants 100 activities over 100 days, supporting them to take a break from, or cut back on, their gambling.

Did you know?

  • Only 22% of gamblers with a problem seek formal help or ask for help from friends and family, and typically this only occurs at crisis point (Victorian Gambling Prevalence Study, 2015).
  • The vast array of barriers to help-seeking are manifestations of stigma: denial, embarrassment, pride and shame are just a few.
  • People who aren’t ready to seek formal help but want to change may need motivators that reinforce the positive benefits of not gambling that they can manage at a personal level.
  • That’s why we created the 100 Day Challenge.

How it works

The 100 Day Challenge is a flexible program designed with the help of professionals to give you the support you need. And it’s all done anonymously.

You can set individual goals, get support and advice, discover new activities or chat to others who are also up for the challenge.

Key features:

  • Set your own goal to take a break, cut back or stop permanently 
  • Take the quiz to see if you are experiencing harm from your gambling
  • Daily check in option to track how you are sticking to your goal 
  • Tips and advice on managing your finances and building a support team 
  • 100 different activities to help resist the urge to gamble, categorised into six groups: Wellness, Solitary, Practical, Physical, Creative and Social. Activities might be new or familiar but are all designed to inspire and guide you each and every day on the challenge
  • Community forum -  When you sign up you’ll soon know that you’re not alone, in fact, there’s a whole community of ‘challengers’ ready to cheer you along.
