Anders Bergman, MSc, MA

Anders is the editor-in-chief of all content on QuitGamble.com. He is also the author of many articles and the platform’s founder. His interest in psychology and problem-solving has only deepened with hundreds of interviews and thousands of hours helping gambling addicts for the past five years.

Anders is determined to provide the best possible support for problem gamblers worldwide. It includes staying on top of the latest addiction research, using old models in new ways, and he’s not afraid of thinking outside the box.

His writing style is characterized by “writing for the reader”. He doesn’t use fancy words to show off; instead, he tries to use a language the reader is familiar with and uses themselves. It means that the texts are not written to please authorities or trained counselors. The text is written for gambling addicts and people trying to help them.
