Monitor Your Gambling & Urges

Monitor Your Gambling & Urges (MYGU) - If you’re trying to cut down or quit gambling, we recommend you monitor or track your gambling urges. Research has shown that people who keep track of their gambling behaviour are more successful when they try to quit or reduce their gambling! Developed by a team of leading healthcare professionals at the CAMH Gambling, Gaming and Technology Use (formerly, Problem Gambling Institute of Ontario), download MYGU today to identify when your urges to gamble occur, when you choose to gamble what happens as a result. It’s anonymous, free and easy to use. Your account will also allow you to access more features and other self-help tools at

MYGU will report back to you:

Date and time you experience an urge to gamble

What ‘triggers’ your urges to gamble? (A trigger can create an urge to gamble -for example having money, feeling bored or lonely may all be triggers)

What activities you do instead of gambling

Wins and losses when you gambled

Your feelings-if you gambled or you didn’t gamble

Consequences-if you gambled or didn’t gamble

MYGU works best if it is used every time you have an urge to gamble. MYGU is meant for educational purposes only. Learn more about when your urges to gamble occur, and how much you are winning or losing if you choose to gamble. For more information, visit
