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. My mindset has changed! I am "free" of this habit, but to stay free requires day-today respect for the non gambling angel on my shoulder. There is absolutely no complacency about this: I will always be one bet from disaster. I will do my damnedness for that NOT to happen.

I haven't gambled for

128

days
