As a recovering alcoholic who has been sober for many years, I think the gambling restriction function in Monzo is an excellent excellent idea.
Why should not an alcohol purchase restriction function not be added to the app? Once added and activated it cannot be undone. This would be of tremendous benefit to alcoholics. Yes, of course they may Find another way, but it least it puts it there in their consciousness in the same way that the gambling restriction does.
Alcoholism is a very serious disease, and Monzo is becoming one of the most popular banks in the UK. Having this function could be of tremendous benefit, and could in fact save lives.
My question is whether or not this idea has already been floated by the technical & executive Monzo team?
Also, having worked as an operations manager within an investment bank for over a decade, and with the problem which I was happy to disclose here, this would be something which I would be honoured and privileged to be involved in if it is something which Monzo thinks is worth going ahead with.
I would welcome any comments from the community and from Monzo itself regarding this idea which struck me only the other day. Thoughts folks?
