And great that you took the action you needed to. You know now that the difficult part of taking action is the lead up to it. Once we take action there is a relief and that thought “it was so easy why didn’t I do it sooner!” I know this is just the beginning for you – take action if you do find yourself relapsing, (maybe as Monica suggested you could start by changing your posting name!)
As for me – I haven’t had a bet for several years – over a decade, but then I am considerably older than you. Am I recovered? Do we ever recover? I know that I can never place a bet again and have no intention to. That is recovery enough for me.
