I would be interested to hear what new habit you are forming. I know one of the pillars of recovery is making new use of time – but I find that hard one hard to advice people on because it is so individual. What do you do that substitutes for the emotional rush of gambling?
My new (not so new now) habit is walking out in the country. It feels like a contradiction of being in a closed off gambling venue where often you can’t even see the outdoors. But I am aware that is not a pull for many people.
I am glad I am still able to go out on my “permitted exercise” time and my big concern is for those who gamble on-line as I feel there is no escape for them.
Good to see you posting and I look forward to discovering your new habit – if you feel you want to share.
