Now when I look back telling my girlfriend was the best decision I have ever made in my life. I actually was a the point off depression... I actually got to the stage where I felt like my head was going to go. It's not healthy for the mind living with such a secret and if I add any advice with anyone with this terrible hidden secret addiction I'd tell them to own up ASAP and talk to someone before it's too late. As I said I have a lot of people on here to thank for really helping me and pushing me in the right direction to get better.

SO THANKS

Hello tommyb,

Well done to you for all of your efforts and the progress you are making.

I wonder if you'd like us to move this thread to the 'Recovery diaries' section, so that you can update it there from now on, as 'New members' is usually used for introductions, and this has become a well used thread for a few months now.

Take care,

Forum admin.

Good morning Tommy.

Yes, you could still post there. They'd just move it to the part of the forum where people are posting regularily to keep a journal of their recovery.

http://www.gamcare.org.uk/forums/recovery-diaries

You can also get there by clicking the 'Recovery diaries' link on the forum's main page.

They probably suggested this because your thread is more than just a short introduction by now.

Either way - you're doing well. Keep it up! :)

Hello tommyb,

We've moved this thread to the 'Recovery diaries' section now, you can continue to update here. 

You can always find your threads by going to your profile page and clicking on 'My threads', and you can click on 'Will she understand and forgive' to go to this thread. 

If you like, you can change the title of your thread by clicking 'Edit' on your first post in the thread, if you ever want to change the heading of your diary, as some of our forum members do that, while others prefer to keep the title of their thread the same.

If you need forum admin help at any point, you can email us at [email protected]

Take care,

Forum admin.

A bit of a confusion here. Now you've got two threads.

Doesn't matter really, I just hope everything is ok. How are you doing?

I'm actually doing OK bluescreen. I have had a few days where I really want to go and bet but I come on here and read my post and don't listen to the wee voice telling me to do a bet. I am 23 days gf.... I am attending a councillor and I have given my girlfriend full control of my finances and I'm just a far happier person... My moods are better and I can actually get a proper night sleep every night now instead of laying awake with WORRY. I never ever want to be in that dark place again and that's why I'm going to do this right. I'm so lucky to have my girlfriend by my side and I owe her so much. I could not have done this without her support.

ONWARDS AND UPWARDS.

That's good to hear, Tommy. Congratulations on 23 days.

Yeh, a good night's sleep is very relaxing without the worry and stress that comes with gambling. Enjoy your new life with your girlfriend and don't listen to that voice. It's never ever kept its promises anyways, why should it be any different next time? All it ever did is leading us right back to that dark place.

Keep it up, you are doing well. :)
