Did you know?

  • Only 22 per cent of gamblers with a problem seek formal help or ask for help from friends and family, and typically this only occurs at crisis point (Study of gambling and health in Victoria, 2015).
  • Many of the barriers to help-seeking are manifestations of stigma: denial, embarrassment, pride and shame are just a few.
  • People who want to change but aren’t ready to seek formal help may benefit from actions they can manage at a personal level which reinforce the positives of not gambling.
  • 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 participants the support they need. And it’s all done anonymously.

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

Key features:

  • Ability to set your own goal to take a break, cut back or stop gambling permanently
  • 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
  • Strong and supportive community forum for sharing ideas, hurdles and successes – a whole community of ‘challengers’ cheering each other along.
