Hope the painkillers help you both get some sleep tonight!

I know what you mean about parents who struggle to cope, having kids. It's hard as they cannot make you feel safe. You don't get your emotional needs met. You learn right from day one that life is a struggle. I truly believe you carry that with you in life, if things were a real struggle for parents to cope.

This is the reason I haven't had children. I don't want to pass the struggle on to another generation.

I'm not surprised you were tempted to buy a scratchcard. A lot of stress and pressure in your world at present. Your gambling demon wants you to escape it.

What is it that's happening in 9 days? I think I missed something :-) 

Keep talking and dealing with the feelings. So proud of you. You really are going through a lot and it's very brave.

I know you have a different outlook to mine on work ethic but is it adding extra pressure to be trying to go upwards in your career and get promoted? I think if this is something you want, you should definitely do it - but do you have to do it NOW? Dealing with the emotions from counselling must be hard enough. Can you be kind to yourself and say "I have enough to struggle with for now" "I won't take any more on, until I am feeling better, emotionally." 

Just a thought! Don't make things harder than they have to be. That's when overwhelm and gambling happen.

Great observation, S!

Yes, when you are dealing with deep-seated traumas you are not in a good place to get close to someone. That's OK, though! 

I think processing some of these emotions may make it easier for you to get close to people in the future, don't you think?

Have a great day. You're smashing it!

Hi S.J.B. hope your sleeping soundly and wake up feeling fresh as a daisy. It's 1-30 in the morning and just been enjoying the music you shared "Running running running - ain't running from myself no more." Great song and got me wondering what I was running from when I ran off to the fobt machines. Also loved the other song: "I miss you." Thoughtful lyrics as I do miss something and have experience of loneliness. Sometimes life can be very sad but other times it can be fun.

As you say it can take a while to settle when we get back on the horse because it's frightening to realise how vulnerable we are.

I agree with your sentiments; It is a nasty, horrible addiction. & "Gambling is not a solution to lifes struggles." 

Wishing you well ...stephen

Hey S... I found this post in dealing with urges. It's a sticky of favourite posts. I copied it for my son a while back... may help and can't hurt.

Cathyx

How to cope with urges.

For many individuals, the crucial problem is coping with urges. In order to cope well with them, it is usually necessary to understand them accurately, rather than in the distorted manner of many addicts. Some common distortions about urges are that urges are excruciating or unbearable, that they compel you to use or act, that they will drive you crazy if you do not use or act, and that they will not go away until you use or act. Some individuals are confused enough about their own thinking that they have a difficult time identifying distinct urges, and simply think of themselves as behaving a certain way "because I like to."

In actuality, urges can be uncomfortable but they are not unbearable unless you blow them out of proportion; they do not force you to do anything (there have probably been many instances where you had an urge but did not act), they have not driven you crazy yet (and will not), each urge will go away if you simply wait long enough, and there are periods between urges which become increasingly longer if you stop.

Although during the initial days or weeks of abstinence or moderation, especially after a long period of daily addictive behavior, you may experience many urges of strong and even increasing intensity. Recovering addicts of all types report that urges eventually peak in frequency, intensity, and duration, and then gradually, with occasional flare-ups, fade away. How long it will take for urges to peak, and how rapidly they will subside, depends on many factors, including the specific addiction, the length of the addiction, how successful the program of abstinence or moderation has been, and the strength of the developing alternative lifestyle. However, as a very broad guideline, within six months to one year most addicts will report only feeble urges (for instance, one a week, lasting a few minutes, a 1 or 2 on a 10 point scale).

It is also crucial not to take responsibility for the occurrence of the urge, but only your response to it. It is normal for any addict to experience urges, and just because on Sunday you decide to stop does not mean that on Monday you will not have urges. The fact that urges occur does not indicate that your motivation is weak, but that your addiction is strong. Because all habits have unconscious components, of which the urge is one, it will take time for these to die away. What is within your control, however, is how you respond to the urge. An analogy could be made to someone knocking at your front door. All sorts of individuals might knock at your door, but it is up to you to decide with whom you will talk. Their knocking is not your responsibility, but to what extent you choose to speak with them is.

Specific techniques for coping with urges include the following.

When an urge occurs, accept it, but keep it at a distance. Experience it as you would a passing thought, one which "comes in one ear and out the other". Detach yourself from it, and observe and study it as an outside object for a moment. Then return your attention to what you were previously doing. If the urge is intense, remember (and perhaps picture) your benefits of stopping/cutting back (which can be carried in your wallet or purse). Recall a "moment of clarity", a moment when changing your addictive behavior seemed almost without question the right course of action. Think your addictive behavior through to the end:

When an urge is present, you tend to think only of the Benefits of the Addiction, but completing the image to include the negative consequences that follow will give you a more accurate view of the whole scenario. If the urge is very intense, engage yourself in a distracting activity, one which you have enjoyed before and which will take your mind off the urge, or use a specific distraction technique, such as counting things (e.g., leaves on a plant, books on a shelf), doing arithmetic (e.g., continually subtracting 7 from 1000, 993, 986, etc.), or focusing on alphabetical/verbal games (e.g., saying the alphabet backwards, reading signs backwards, searching book titles or license plates for the alphabet, etc.). Any simple activity conducted at high speed can fill up your attention, thereby allowing no attention for the urge. Any thought or activity on which you completely focus your attention is all that is needed, because if no attention is paid to the urge, then it will no longer exist. Although another urge may come along at any point, that urge also can be dealt with in a similar fashion. Over time the urges come less frequently, as already stated.

To summarize these urge coping techniques, all urges should be accepted. Low level urges can be observed but kept at a distance. Attention can then be re-directed to whatever one was paying attention to prior to the urge. More intense urges can be "counterargued" by reviewing in some fashion the benefits of not engaging in the addictive behavior, and the facts about urges mentioned above (e.g., all urges go away eventually; they are uncomfortable but not unbearable unless I blow them out of proportion;). Very intense urges can be dealt with using some form of distraction, repeated as necessary. All urges eventually go away.

Hi S,

So glad your canine companion is back to herself and no pain. It's hard to see them suffer.

I really identify with what you say about not clicking with people anymore. I can't remember the last time I met someone and it just felt comfortable and easy. I'd say for me, this has been going on for at least 10 years. I also find it a lonely experience. I tend to feel connection more these days when part of a small group. Playing a game together, or having a joke and a laugh. Sometimes I feel connection to characters in books, or to animals.

I understand the uncomfortable nature of the strong urges and the time period it takes to recover from losses financially. All very normal and all passes.

Hello S.J.B.... Sorry you have been feeling blue. I think at this time of year we can easily experience ups & downs. I will certainly be with you as we all navigate through christmas and the new year. No doubt the addiction will be trying to pick us off with lies and deceit but we know it's all a pack of lies which just leads to a terribly dark and forbidding place.

On a brighter note I had to laugh picturing you singing your head off as you drove home "Driving home for christmas." Thankyou for sharing that.

Hope you and lil babe have peace and contentment over christmas and new year. 

Look forward to sharing the journey in 2018 as we go for a full year gamble free. I know it can be done and I know we will be better for doing it.

Thank you for posting on my diary S&B. I really enjoyed the music link and when we do get over that rainbow everything will fine.

Glad you enjoy the counselling, I had 12 sessions which I enjoyed. Sometimes it can help to clear the air and put things in perspective.

You are proceeding nicely along the recovery road, as well as helping others, with your warmth, humour and friendly advice.

Like you I am afraid of relapsing and know only too well how vulnerable we all are. Pay day coming up for me and I am very much on edge because so many pay days in the past have been gloom and doom. I do feel I have it in me to resist the urges and by focussing on one day at a time I should be okay.

Hey, S

I'd say, just going from your posts on here, that a break from counselling sessions might have been a good thing.

It was bringing up some very intense emotions that at times felt overwhelming for you. That will have taken a toll on you but also done some healing. It's an intense sort of thing to confront, so rest can only be good.

You've shown such bravery - and will again, I'm sure. Dealing with past traumas and anger will hopefully chip big chunks off of the thing that makes you want to gamble and escape.

Aww, S

It sucks feeling isolated. I have found that once you know a few people, your social circles sort of naturally expand. Definitely better to have quality over quantity. I think like-minded people are less likely to trigger you in anger or fear. 

Maybe at first, it's a case of just being around more people in real life. Yoga/exercise classes, recovery meetings anything, really. I found this helped me rebuild my confidence a little, getting used to a bit of small talk again.

When are your counselling sessions starting back?

Hey, S :-)

A little flirtation is nice. Gives you those good brain chemicals.

I think face-to-face will be really healing for you. From the limited amount I know about the subject, the shame is so debilitating. You can go logical and understand intellectually that you have nothing to feel ashamed about but still the irrational shame comes. I believe speaking about the shame you feel, in a supportive environment, is a great step. 

I have just finished reading a book written by an american professor about shame. She interviewed thousands of people and found the most resilient people did 4 things. They spoke to trusted people about what they felt ashamed about, they showed empathy and compassion to others when they shared their shame and they received it back (I guess this is why fellowships like GA are so successful?), they knew and understood their triggers (so they felt kindness to themselves when they over-reacted to things because they understood it was normal and natural to be triggered and feel strong emotion as a result), finally, they could critically evaluate their own beliefs and attitudes/expectations of themselves. This means, for example "is it rational and reasonable to feel ashamed because at age 45 I do not look like this airbrushed, 20 year old model in the magazine?"

Anyway, really interesting, enlightening stuff. I wanted you to know that according to a world-leading shame researcher, face-to-face counselling should massively help (although will possibly be really hard at first). 

So excited to see these positive things happening in your life.

Hi S&B thank you for posting on my diary, I really appreciate your support.  If all goes to plan I will never need to change my thread again. It puzzles me why the gambling is so clingy. I stopped drinking alcohol in 1990 than stopped smoking in 2001 so I am surprised that I have struggled with gambling so much.

Really pleased your starting the new year in a positive fashion. Good you enjoy the counselling. I found it beneficial and it has helped me in my recovery, which has suffered a setback,  but i'm still determined not to gamble.

Be cautious with workplace romances. Sometimes they work sometimes they don't but "Love is a many splendoured thing." Wow that song is a blast from the past. Age differences don't always mean a lot when 2 people are in love. I dated a girl who was only 17, mind you it was 50 years ago.

Glad lil babe is ok and not still having the sharp pains. She will keep you on your toes I imagine with walks here and there.

Take care...stephen x

Hi Sandra,

sorry to hear that you have self-harmed today. You said it came out of the blue, I wonder if it is worth exploring with your counsellor (when you get to go and see her, the new one) if you can learn and identify triggers for any form of self-harming behaviour. 

Hope you will have a more positive day tomorrow.

All the best,

Eva

Congratulations S&B on 70 days gamble free. You are doing really well. I always enjoy reading your posts, you brighten up the diaries with humour and your reflections on life.

The new hairstyle sounds quite wonderful, pleased you enjoyed your session in the hairdressers. 

Hope lil girl is ok. It is good that you have a nice park close by to take her for walks. As long as one is well wrapped up, a stroll in the park on a winters day is quite invigorating.

I enjoyed your musical links on 5th January. I found NERVO particularly entertaining, they really got the audience involved and played some awesome music. 

Take care ...stephen

Thank you for the wonderful post on my diary S&B. You have a lot of understanding and offer good advice. As you so rightly say, "Life is to be lived and enjoyed and not something to escape from." Happiness, sadness, struggles and strife is all part of the human experience. Our good friend Mixer believes we must have got a 'Golden Ticket' just to be here. I agree with him. 

To be at the 'Creamfield Festival' with NERVO on stage, WOW, that must have been an amazing experience. I was giving it loads just watching them on youtube, so to actually be their must have been really special for you.

That sounds like a really good idea having a little holiday with your sister. I imagine that could be both fun and a very positive experience for you both. My sister's really nice but she can be a bit bossy and sometimes drives me crackers.

Sorry you have been troubled by memories and thoughts of bereavement. It is the loved one's who are left behind that suffer the pain of loss and separation. Presumably the deceased are oblivious to the drama that unfolds following their departure. One thing's for sure, none of us will get out of this alive !!! Or will we, in some strange way, carry on with our journey.

On that cheery note my friend I will wish you and lil girl a pleasant evening. Take care ...stephen

Wow, S! 10 weeks is amazing! Well done!

For what it's worth, my view is - even if your heart isn't fully in recovery, 10 weeks of abstinence is still better than none. I wonder if you have reflected on triggers for gambling in any of your therapy sessions? The reason I ask is, often panic about lack of money is a trigger for people. If you haven't gambled for 10 weeks, this is probably not as big of a trigger as it might be if you'd been losing hundreds every week.

You're on the right track ANd who cares how long it takes! progress is progress.

I echo the sentiments of Little Miss Wild Child. Loved the music links S&B. Really enjoyed watching them on youtube.

Swedish House Mafia were really special. "We came ~ We raved ~ We loved." That just about summed them up I think.

Here's a nice little song for you. The chorus strikes a chord with me ; Sia ~ Never Give Up. "I've battled demons that won't let me sleep ~ Called to the sea but she abandoned me ~ But I won't never give up, no, never give up."

Take care. Wishing you well...stephen ( You too Little Miss Lost, hope your happy and well ).

Hi S&B

i can relate to how you are feeling, the lost and loneliness thoughts and the wishing to be shown the way. All we can do is keep abstaining and let time take it's course. None of can predict the future all we can do is create a brighter one for ourselves. We've all got angels looking over us and the good times will come back. Patience is a difficult one isn't it and the wanting of what we had before gambling intervened. 

I wish you well for the rest of the month, January is especially hard

Hi S&B

it is always a pleasure to comment and help when I can.

Humans are impatient creatures and we do all remember the times when we had money in our pockets to be able to choose what we can do and where to go, who to do things with. You are right, now that the fog has lifted for us both we can see what we want and where we want to get to, just want it to hurry up!

Yes I've had good runs as have you and we will continue to fight this. I do remember how abstainance changes me, I become the person people love to be around and see, I laugh and smile again and the soul and zest for life returns.

Making the right choices is paramount and looking after ourselves is important even though that is another hurdle for me but I'll no longer beat myself up for being human and making mistakes and wanting to look after and care for people.

I love the Spring and Summer and I've plans :-)

All I know is I want to do right, by myself, pay debts, make family proud and eventually feel sort of normal, which I have never experienced apart from for over a year back in my thirties and it was amazing!

I have lost interest for life as well, I no longer set myself goals as I disappointed myself whenever I missed them, maybe take that pressure off yourself? Well done on hitting your goal last yead though. Do you think you suffer with a lack of confidence, low self esteem, depression, anxiety? I Suffer with all of the mentioned, it's very hard. 

I can relate to not finding the energy to post, i've struggled to find the energy to wash up all week, it's so difficult, just hang in there are we know we have at least one good day in 7! lol

Yes it is about time and not being hard on ourselves, don't listen to anyone who doesn't understand, just talk to those that do and those that go through low moods etc

Each day that goes by things improve, just keep up your good work

Should be productive but can't be arsed, just looking over my shoulder so I don't get caught which has happened before! lol

Yes helping others by lending support makes my day as I'm sure it gives them a lift as well to read that someone gives a ****.

Take care of yourself x

Take good care of yourself, S x x 

If it's flu you MUST rest. Do you get sick pay? Even if you don't... health comes first, put it on overdraft, eh?

I've been reading along, just haven't got much to say :-)
