In my early days of stopping it felt more like a stop-start-stop so I know what you are going through. Do you know what triggered your “slip?” Boredom was a big one for me – I just needed a few minutes without anything to do and the gambling thoughts come raging in.

Anything non-gambling that works for you at this point is worth considering – even if it is a mindless computer game. As long as there is no money involved or link to gambling. Or if being on the computer is in itself a trigger – then find some other media – or even play patience with real cards. I know I did a time or two when I was desperate.

Anyways I hear the determination in your post to keep at it and to make gambling less and less an issue in your life. I wish you well.
