It has been a week since I last went to the casino. This journey is not easy. I gave up my finances gone to a support group. Reading daily reflection and Still think about going to the casino. This I noticed. When I feel ignored or have a rough day at work is when I think of it the most. I will try to change my thoughts for better ones. Just for today I will not gamble.
Casinos or gaming machines in general are a great way to escape the negative feeling that we allow ourselves to feel. Loneliness, rejection, lack of acceptance are emotions that we can escape from for a short while but it is for a short while, then were chasing and excluding ourselves from others lives to hide the hole we’ve dug.
The saying below is one of my favorites
“Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny. ”
Congratulations on your week, it’s a huge milestone
