Hi MBA, be proud of yourself very proud, your doing so well and you must keep it up, life is so much better without gambling.  I packed in smoking 2 years in March and since not gambling I've had the urge for a cigarette which I've also not done.  Same as gambling once you start one leads to another and another.  I think we will always have to be on our guard, I want to be debt free and if I carry on like I'm doing it will all be done and dusted by this time next year.  I've changed almost back to,the person I was before the dreaded gambling, I can sleep peacefully and I like it.  Keep fighting, best wishes x

177 days.
On the job front i am going back to saudi arabia in 10 days to work for another 5 weeks.

Its good money so will again help with my huge debt

I missed my counselling appointment last night as i was busy arranging my daughters birthday party and gathering some information about my next work trip.
I see it as a good thing as it shows i dont have gambling and counselling on my mind.

Rebooked for next week so that could be my last as the following week i will be in saudi.

Hey....

No i don't reward myself.

Still got a huge amount of debt so my rewarding is by paying that off.

Congratulations mba, fantastic achievement.
Yes, your reward is your debts are getting paid but dont forget to take a minute to give yourself a pat on the back. Yes you created your debts but you are now doing all you can to turn things around, which is not easy but 200 gf days later says what you are doing is working - well done! All good wishes x

Thank you for your kind words.

I am still currently working away in Saudi Arabia and when i come home I will treat myself and the family.
Maybe a weekend away, and we also have a holiday to spain in june so suppose they are my treats.

It is great to hear from you again but i am sorry to hear of your fathers passing. You had 220 days of non-gambling when that happened and if he knew of your past struggles i hope he knew of your fantastic 220 gamble free days also. Hope to hear more from you when you are feeling up to it.

Thank you for the message.
He never knew exactly what was happening in my gambling life but he would have been proud.
He knew i fought these demons and understood the struggles i had.
Hope he is proud of me now.
