Very true that Kin. Thank you for posting.
The thought of the “big win” is very enticing and does make it very difficult to stop gambling.
I think we have to keep deflecting thoughts of gambling by doing something else that is positive, for example a hobby, mixing with people, those types of things.
Keep telling ourselves that there will be no gambling today.
Even if we just do something that means we avoid gambling that is ok, for example watching TV, listening to music, having an early night.
One day at a time. Best wishes.
