Super post above scrambling.
Just goes to show, when the gambling haze lifts there is a world out there!!!
Makes me want to say . . . Looking forward to reading about 'the adventures of scrambling!' (Only the oldies will probably understand this, scrambling instead of tin tin!) Sorry if it's gibberish to you. It made me smile so's not all bad!
Keep counting up the days. It sounds like you're doing great! X

Day 118,

Hello Little miss lost, yes there is a whole world out there waiting to be discovered! 

Long weekend is over and it was fairly relaxing. Starting to get this guitar thing down now, which is cool. Just need to keep practising! The run up to xmas is on and I still need to get the presents wrapped. Plenty of time yet, I just keep finding better things to do :)

As 2018 approaches I am looking forward to a fresh start in life, making the most of my mistakes by not forgetting, but learning from them.

You're doing so well. Teaching yourself in your spare time is great. Motivation is something I am a little lacking in so really well done on it. Keep it up.

Day 123,

Had a horrible dream last night that I lost all the money I had managed to pay off land being back to where I was 4 months ago. I was so disappointed in myself. It felt very real, however it was not real and my march continues for a better life.

I have been enjoying my own time lately. Have been a bit lazy to be honest, but I think it was needed. Just as long as it doesn't become a habit! My goals remains still very much on developing and creating myself and that's not going to happen sitting in front of the laptop all day.

I keep up to date with my credit score and this month my score for the first time has changed from 'poor' to 'stable'. Another reminder that I am doing all things right. As its xmas soon, like most people I get paid early. It's going to be cool to pay off more of my debt as my xmas shopping is already done! 

However positive I am I can't say I am enjoying life at the moment because of recent personal events, however I know with time and staying away from gambling I can one day find peace and happiness. One day I shall be content :)

Be careful during the holiday season everybody. I know the pressure of xmas, buying gifts and going out for parties can urge you to try and make more money. I've been there, done it many times. It never works. It really never does.

Take care,

SCAMbling

Day 126,

I read today that Broadway Gaming (operator of several online casinos) just received a fine of £100000 for breaching social responsibility regulations between June 16 - June 17. Funnily enough having done a bit of research this company operates one of the online casinos I used early this year losing rather a lot of money as my credit report shows a search by Broadway gaming for money laundering regulations. (Which they did not ask permission for). I thought about writing to the gambling commission with deposit history in an attempt to possibly claim back some money, however when I logged into the online casino to retrieve my transaction history I found that there were no transactions. My bank statements show otherwise. Bit fishy if you ask me. Not for a second was I tempted to browse any games or deposit so no worries there!

I started wrapping my xmas presents today. I forgot how long it takes. Yes I'm that guy who loses the end of the selotape everytime I put it down. Hahah...

Still dancing and picking up the guitar. Hit a bit of a wall with it, as I've learnt, but just need to constantly practice now. 

Also caught a cold and it's bloody freezing!! Bring on spring!! Brrrr

Hi Scambling

Just thought I would pop in and say well done on 126 days GF, it is a tremedous achievement.

Have fun with the Christmas preparations and keep up the fight against gambling. I hate selotape but not as much as giving money to online casinos.
