After 2 and a half years of fighting with that nightmare and so many relapses I decided to start that journal in an effort to remind me why I shouldn’t continue
I am in 14k debt, zero bank balance and completely lost control over my gambling in the past few days and it all happened very quickly.
I still have a loving girlfriend, a good job, and neither my friends nor family knows about my habits.
It’s still manageable to get over that

Well done on previously reaching 2.5 years gable free. Sorry to hear that you recently went back to gambling, but if you got to 2.5 years before, you can do it again and more.
Have you put in any new barriers, or processes to limit the opportunities and chances of going back to gambling?
