Well today is 09/07/17 and I marked that day by self excluding from all uk casinos for six months. I now cant gamble online, in bookies or in casinos horray. I feel very proud of what I have done its not been easy to admit I have a problem that needs to resort to such measures but I know now I cant gamble through any of these methods. 23/12/17 is the day I stopped for good. Ive been on here for over two years now, ive changed jobs, bought a flat, gone through many hobbies, life is continuing, its going by quickly however my gambling is still a big part of my life. Its time to change, 2018 will hopefully see the gambling side change for good, it will see me meet new people, see new things, visit new places, and spend my money wisely. Update 2/02/18 one whole calender month gone by without being in a pub, gambling one penny or drinking any alcohol. Really gone quickly ive been at home or in the gym most of the time as been off work sick mental health issues. But keeping the exercise up is my new goal along with no pubs and no alcohol. Update 03/03/18 been to a pub now a couple of times, no alcohol tho, was a tough one, one I'm not going to do again, here's to a new life. Well hee I am I've made it to 100 days now and boy do I feel a lot better, onwards and upwards.

I haven't gambled for

118

days
