Mike , The truth is none of us on here want to stop gambling completely – we all love gambling and would gamble all day every day if we could .

However most of us NEED to stop gambling – it takes so much time from us (not just gambling time but planning and regretting time), it takes our money and the good life we could be having.

Once gambling becomes compulsive and we find we  are gambling more than we intended to, and for longer than we aimed to – gambling has become an addicting for us – it is really hard to cut back for most people as we just don’t have that stop button inside us once we start.

Most of us eventually ( and I am a particularly slow learner ) come to the realisation that we need to stop completely . Well done on the calendar and the gamble free time . Perhaps for now aim to stay gamble free- you might like life a lot more without gambling .
