Well Mixer not to exciting I'm afraid, more one disaster after another at work. Mainly we had a leak from the ceiling and it dropped onto the tills one till died then we got it back to life then I hear crash! The ceiling falls in!! The ceiling in the ladies loo crashes in luckily I'd out of ordered them due to the leak in there. Then with sorting everything I had no time to eat all I could do was put some toast in and then I burnt that! Luckily I didn't get to stressed - something I'm working on - so I survived, the shop will survive and will move on - all good fun ish!

So on to another check in, Christmas is fast approaching maybe a little to fast for some but luckily I've now bought all prezzies so I'm a little chilled now and going to enjoy the run in to Christmas. I hope everyone can enjoy there's and find a gamble free Christmas is a better Christmas.

Well done to all checking in, for those staying gamble free and for those fight back from a slip, old and new members staying off betting today is always the goal and aslong as we don't bet today we win and will always be winning.

Shout out to Slot Fool for passing the one month mark and for Unicorntears for making it to 2 months and to Moorey631986 for hitting the bullseye. We'll done to all I'm proud of anyone with the strength to tackle their addiction.

Below is the list of all checking in and days gamble free.

Day 76. Safely checked in, not long now till Christmas. Finish work on Friday and a few celebrations planned at my house and family's houses. All good. No money wasted, but more importantly perhaps, no time wasted gambling.

The numbers are a bit smaller this week but I guess it is a busy time for us all. I hope that everyone is safe, well and gamble free. Anyone not ready for Christmas enjoy the madness of the last week of shopping, don't get to stressed out, do what you can and try to enjoy the run up to it all.

We have Alimbutt hitting the month mark and with the darts World championship just started its apt for another bullseye with spaceman. Well done to the two of you and for everyone checking in and staying gamble free.

Below is the list of those checked in with an up to date day count.

One last thing, the update that should fall on Christmas day, I hope to still do it on Christmas day but In advance I will say there maybe a chance it'll be on boxing day instead. Take care all.

129 days GF, not easy as we all know, the first Xmas in years that I've not been deviously on the iPhone or laptop playing slots over the Xmas period, losing thousands I didn't have and inflicting more pain upon myself for another new year. 

Happy Xmas to everyone

Merry Christmas! I hope everyone has a great day. Drink and eat to much, enjoy your prezzies and be proud that you're gamble free.

Baring 1 all that checked in last week checked in this week, really great to see that. Hopefully we can have a good strong core of check ins going forward.

Got a few to shout out Sars27 - 200, a nice double century, be very proud. sjwsjw - 90, 3 months, very impressive. Christer1 hits the bullseye, I clearly have seen to much darts and ADJ goes into double figures. Setting, hitting goals and milestones I think is a great motivator. Be proud of everyday but take that bit of extra pride when those milestones come around, maybe even treat yourself wether big or small just something to mark the occasion. We'll done to all.

Hey everyone! So sorry haven't been around. Happy Christmas to you all, no matter what..... I haven't gambled for 78 days. Stuff's been difficult, but gambling hasn't been a factor. I haven't even thought about it tbh, it's been a bad, bad time. But, said what i was going to do, no gambling. Anyone struggling, keep going, anyone complacent, don't be. New year's not far away, keep it going gamble free, be it 1 day or 1000+ until then and beyond. Xxx thanks for everyone's support. Xxxx

Happy New Year! May 2018 bring you all you need and more. This could be the year that's the making of you so go do you what you need to do.

Back to business and wow a very quiet week for check ins but it's to be expected, I presume (+hope) everyone is having to much fun and out enjoying live. Well just make sure your back checking in weekly from now on, don't let complacency creep in.

Shout out to Boxingdayfresh who hits three months, as I've said and is well documented on here three months is a great benchmark, it shows you can do it, it shows your commitment and it's long enough to break habits, just stay strong and keep doing what you doing, no complacency, congrats to you boxingdayfresh. Slot Fool hits another bullseye, I'm all for goals, numbers and targets, keeps me moving forward hope it does the same for you all. We'll done Slot Fool halfway way to the century club - just a matter of time, the membership forms are ready and waiting.

Below is the list of all checking in. Well done to all for adding another 7 gamble free days.
