Mixer's profile

I am a (recovering)compulsive gambler and always will be. I'm putting in place another big effort to try and stop this destructive habit, with extra practical measures to help bolster my campaign. I remind myself day of a simple maxim I must adhere to: "Today, whatever the provocation, I will not gamble. Absolute misery, or living a life as it's meant to be lived, is the choice." To make bloody sure I don't buckle - because I'm very sneaky as a 'polished' compulsive gambler - I've passed full financial control to my wife. We both revisit this 'policy' regularly to make sure I say on track. It's the only way and I accept this.

I haven't gambled for
