Got through another day with no gambling today. Last few days have been tough. After a long time hiding, finally going through finances and seeing the best possible ways to save and pay off cards. Can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel but I known it’s there. It’s going to take a while to get where I should be but I’ll get there.

16 days… longest I’ve given up for since i started. How crazy? I’m not really getting urges to go back at the moment. I’ve still got the feeling that you have after you’ve lost big the night before… although I’m two weeks after now!! Which is a good thing but you can all imagine the mood swings and the deflated feeling I’m having every morning. Anyone got any ideas to help? or do you just ride it out?

Still taking each day as it comes. I’m really busy with work at the moment to which helps to keep my mind off gambling/money etc. I forgot to mention that on Sunday I had a few too many to drink and opened up to two close friends about the problem, they were quite upset with why I hadn’t mentioned anything. I just explained that I was too embarrassed although it made me realise… although we think there’s nobody that can help sometimes they are just a phone call away. Just have to dig deep and find the courage to dial those numbers!

Day 16 was a gamble free day.

Day 17 will be too.

Hope all is well and your keeping safe. We can do this!
