Day 107

Woke up today feeling proud how far I've come since those dark days in August.

It's pay day next Thursday, my 4th since I've stopped gambling.

All my wages will be going towards my family having a nice Xmas, paying bills and reducing my debt and that feels really great.

Hope everyone has a nice GF Sunday.

Day 113

I've got the gambling gremlin on my shoulder this morning so I've come on here.

"Come on it's Saturday and football day let's deposit" "This diary is boring" "Stop counting days GF and let's have some fun"

These are the thoughts I'm having today but I know in reality it may be fun for a few hours then a losing spiral is bound to happen

What comes after that is something I never want to feel again.

Utter despair, countless deposits and a huge black cloud over my head.

I've come a long way since August but I know I'm not out of the woods.

Sorry for the rambling but need to get this off my chest.

Today I will not gamble.

Day 118

Xmas shopping for the family today.
Feels very good to spend money on the family, have a nice ale in the pub and not give a penny of my money to bookies at this time of the year.

I spoke with the missus about everything yesterday, absolutely everything.

Feels like a rock has come off my chest. Very lucky to have her and the kids in my life.
