    My week has been ok so far, but I am starting over again. At this point I would love to celebrate 30 days being gamble free. It’s sooo freaking hard.
    I know some will say no it isn’t, you just have to have the will power. But, for me it is, when I go I know I shouldn’t go, but I go. When I lose all that I should, I know I should get up and go, but I don’t.
    If it was that easy I would have been stopped.

    Good morning Kin,
    I haven’t been posting recently, but I can still see your posts. This last one really hit home.
    I guess it’s fine to stop ehiniy and stop saying why me, and focus on recovery. Sadly, it seems like recoverywill be a part of the rest of my life.
    Thank you for sharing.

    Hello Gustav,
    Thank you for checking in.
    It is a little embarrassing to say I slipped up, and that’s why it has taken me a minute to respond. The good part is it put me ahead (well, I didn’t lose my pants, son a few dollars), the BAD part is it took me back to day one again…. And I know from experience that they allow you to win to pull you back in. It sucks to know this, but you allow yourself to fall for it.

    One day at a time….

    Good morning Gustav,

    That will always be the big question in my head, why, why me. I never smoked, drinkef alcohol, or done drugs, so why/how did I fall into years of uncontrollable/, compulsive gambling, throwing away my hard earned money.
    Now I have to focus on leaving that habit behind.
    One day at a time….
    Glad to see that you are still doing well.

    Another gamble free day!
    Work today, dinner with husband this evening and I was actually able to treat him to dinner today.
    Stopped by the store on our way home and I was able to pay for my own purchase.
    It felt good not to be broke one day after pay day. All because I made the chose not to throw my money away (gamble).

    One day at a time….

    Thank you Dark Energy!
    Gustav, I did it! 🙂
    Not only another Gamble Free Day, but it was actually a pay day. I actually did it.

    I decided to do something during the hour I would have tried to rush out the door to go play. I actually sat through a Zoom Smart mtg (my first), and I have to admit I enjoyed it and learned a few things. Pretty sure it wont be my last one, but I definitely prefer hitting the park for a good walk. I can’t wait until the time change and the evenings stay light a little longer.

    Hey Gustav,
    Thank you for your support.
    Praying to make it through payday tomorrow without losing one brown penny.
    I got this.

    I’ll be checking in tomorrow, and thank you again.
    Good night.

    Another day, gamble free.
    My pay hit this week, and retirement check hit next week, soooo that will be my test.
    And no, unfortunately I do not have anyone to handle my finances. The life of an introvert….

    One day at a time.
