I’m gonna speak for myself, although I think this applies to many compulsive gamblers. I have many times before gambled because of low self-esteem, low self-worth, and such. When I find myself being productive, taking care of my body, my mind, eating well, staying hydrated, meeting deadlines, etc. it’s so much easier for me to resist the temptations of falling back to old and bad behavior known from my gambling days. First of all because of the momentum and what a waste it would be to throw that progress away, but also because, purely emotionally, I feel that I respect myself more, that I’m worth more than succumbing to gambling urges. My self-esteem and sense of self-worth skyrockets when I’m productive. All in all, I become more stable and less likely to react to impulses. What I’m trying to say is that I’m glad that you have found something that works for you, which totally also works for me. A solid framework for the day makes for a stable life 🙂

Good to hear from you – I’ll look forward to the next update!
