Good evening everyone. I'm sorry but I won't be able to post my catch-up until Tuesday (no later); just particularly busy right now. 

Meantime, keep strong and take care.

Guru Challengers of the world - time to stand up and be counted. There is no point crying in our cereals we need to show courage, common sense and commitment as we confront this insidious, cruel and despotic monster we know as gambling addiction.

No point paying lip service to the advice and information, we need to defend ourselves with all the strategies and good ideas that are discussed in the forum and take on board the wisdom that is offered to us.

Look to the future with eyes on a goal - goodbye to the past - Let's Rock n Roll

Day 80,

I’ve more or less spent the last 80 days educating myself here, it has been invaluable to me. I never thought I could have made it 10 days in the beginning but here I am 80 days into my recovery and 20 away from the big one!

Much love, Daniel

Cheers!  I'm on a day at time & my mind yearns to trip me up by future planning.  Having the self exclusions at near by casinos is a huge block and when urges come it does make me feel sick for a moment.  Stephan is right to focus on things to keep us safe from the cunning addiction.  Yes, having one month distance , once AGAIN, feels solid.  One month can give a sense of clarity and grounding.  I don't want to ramble.  I don't have much advice and I have not been a shining example over the last nearly decade of trying to beat this.  But, today is good. It's a good day to be live.  tara2

Hi, back again 17 days under the belt, after a blip of feeling vulnerable and not actually resetting my years exclusion at shops thinking I could just have that “one” go. That’s a no no. What a hangover ..All exclusions in place again. Been on holiday since so had a nice break away from everything time to crack on with other plans.. no more hangovers

Adam my friend I wish you well and understand your predicament. You wish to socialise with your friends by gambling on poker hands for small stakes and you think you will ok with that.

For what's it's worth and it is merely my own opinion, I don't personnaly believe that would be very helpful to others on the challenge. It sends out the wrong message and gives a green right to selective gambling.

I also feel a little sad as you had broadened your horizons, you were having a good time in the gym, getting fit and exploring new pastimes and hobbies. There are numerous opportunities to socialise with friends, have fun and enjoy challenges without trying to win a few bob off your mates.

By reaching this stage, many compulsive gamblers are at the end of their tether. Bruised, battered and already confused they try to follow the  example and advice given them by fellow compulsive gamblers and GamCare. It is generally acknowledged that we must avoid all forms of gambling as one thing can lead to another in the same way that an alcoholic must abstain completely.

The Guru Challenge is light hearted and fun but it is also a matter of life and death for some people. To go 300 days totally free from gambling is a monumental task which requires courage, self belief and a genuine desire to be free from the misery they associate with gambling.

We need to have a vision of a future free from gambling and we need to keep it nice and simple...stephen

Hey Adam

As an ex poker player who played live poker tournaments away from home at least every 8 week and locally once a week I get where you are coming from with the social aspect of the game. It’s great to meet up with people and have a beer and a game of poker I did it for years. This is my poison however and not knowing where the fine line between socialising and spending every spare minute playing the game nearly cost me my relationship/family. It’s only when I had a big win ( £40k ) and lost most of it within a month I realised I had a problem. I’m not saying you will do that but just be careful pal it’s an addictive beast that game. 

With regards poker and the Guru challenge I agree with exactly what Stephen said.

CATCH-UP TIME!

Hello friends. I hope everything's Ok in your world; been very busy in mine. Still not gambling - I say 'still' because I have to keep my blocks in place, I'm still a 'dog on a leash' but it does mean a better life than the guaranteed miserable alternative that I've lived for far, far too long. I'm always 'one bet away' from disaster and I never forget it.

Let's see how we all are!

Godoicul - You are right in your friendly warning to Adam123 about the perils of social activities that include, by their nature, gambling, such as 'social' poker schools which, of course, are anything but. I recall belonging to a pub poker school, run by Redtooth, playing for chips. But all that does is tantalize the gambling taste buds and the pub landlord remarked to me that the poker night, although playing for 'chips', was the biggest night takings-wise for the pub slots, both before, during and after the poker session. No surprise. Great to read that you are firmly on the GF road, day by day, enjoying the World Cup, and life - superb.

Stephen67 - I have to say, that’s a truly terrific post you wrote for adam123 cautioning him about the pitfalls of him rejoining the pokey tourney. You're exactly right - we really must keep it simple and not make that first bet. Experts up and down the land all say the same thing - we simply must abstain. May I congratulate you for 32 days gambling free, by the way? Great stuff, my friend,

Slotfool – It is an utmost pleasure to see that you’re up to 243 days gamble free, heading, day by day, to the quarter-of-a-century! This is no mean feat and means, in simple terms, that you want a better life. And who can argue with that? Doing great Slotfool … No fool.

Adam123 – You have noticed you’ve mentioned you a couple of times already Adam, and, like Stephen and Godoicul, it’s with sadness. We so want you to do everything you can to get out of the dense fog of this addiction that’s been holding us back for so long. Whilst I fully understand that you need your mates – we all need our friends – poker nights are a sacrifice we have to make. You know the reasons why. It starts off with a quid in the fruity and BAM – skint again. It’s a fact we have more mates when we have cash in our pockets. We always stand our rounds and – even better –are the social animals we should be, without the shadow or dark cloud of gambling following us around. Do reconsider your decision, Adam – we know it’s not easy mate. Remember – we care.

Jeffutd – Thank you for checking in and delighted you’ve reset your exclusions. I must mark in my diary when the 1year exclusion comes up, too – a few months away but I will do it. (That’s the thing about being gambling-free – you’re more inclined to DO things rather than SAY you’re going to do them.) I’m glad you had a nice break; here’s to an enjoyable, less-stress free, gambling-free summer.

Tara2 – Hi Tara and enjoying your posts, as always. Your maxims are very true – “It’s a good time to be alive” is profoundly true on so many levels – after all, we’re “a long time dead!” And never let a decade of hurt get in the way of sharing with us any pearls of wisdom – we are best placed, having seen and lived the hurt and misery, in helping each other drag ourselves out of the fire and into the light.

DmPowell – Learning about this addiction is one of the best things we can do, in my opinion and can – ironically – turn out to be addictive in itself. The more we look into this addiction, the better chance of pennies dropping and moments of realization –realizing, in particular, that gambling is very bad for us and that we must stop. And that we can! 81 hard-fought GF days behind you and many more ahead – triffic!!!

Angel11x – Thank you for checking in and great to see you’ve hit a month gambling-free! 30 days says to me – I can handle a pay-day that’s not going to be gambled away. A great achievement that you can build on – marvelous, Angel!

Egdam – You’ve smashed through the 30-day gambling-free milestone and making great stride ahead. It’s great to see; and as a result things look as sunny as your disposition, which, when we’re not wasting our money, is smiles better than the unnecessary pain we otherwise put ourselves through. Good, good, good!

 

Christer1 – Thank you for your check-in and notice that you’re climbing towards a month gambling-free, a place you’ve been before but you’re wiser. The simple fact you keep sticking to the Gamcare forums shows how important it is to keep in touch. We all share a bond, here, an understanding. We’re a family, and like all families, unconditionally want the best for each other. Keep going Christer!!!

WhereIsMyMind – Thank you for checking in, and also your kind words. I cannot but notice that you’ve hit 32 days gambling free, another one of our merry band crossing off a meaningful period of time. One day at a day, nice and steady: you can do this.

Determined Dan – It’s great to see, like so many of us on here, in fact, your warm and encouraging support of others. It’s good karma – do a good deed, and do it sincerely, and the payback is immense. Helping others at times of needs is very fulfilling, and you can rest assured more people will look out for you, too. Good vibes spread! And 58 days – nearly two months - gambling-free makes clear you mean this.

Sars27 – Hey Sars! You’ve been here from the very beginning and look at the Giant Oak that started off as a nut (like all of us!). 400 days gambling free, over a year of living a life that’s meant to be lived. I wish you, and your lovely family, all the very best, as always!

Bigmug – It’s good to feel personal pride by not gambling. It’s not easy and we should celebrate this good news. Walking with our shoulders back – we can face anything now. It’s great to see you embracing your new life, and new you. 41 days gambling free: yep, you can look yourself in the eye. If you like ‘you’, other people will like you all the more too!

 

Somehow, I’ve manage to write all this without once mentioning the ‘C’ word, but now’s the time….

 

 

 

 

 

Croatia.

We’ve GOT to beat them!

 

Have a great week ahead – how will it end…?

Take care everyone.

Mixer

Thank you Stephen, godo and mixer for the posts it means a lot that you'd put that much thought into keeping me on the straight and narrow gambling wise. I've come to realise that my gambling addiction is a beast of an addiction that if given a reignition of a light will explode into flames and be very difficult to put out. Ive spent this week tossing and turning over my predicament and then the correct answer was come to today . I'm going to stop going to the club and stop for the time being going to pubs. Today ive bought Russell brands book on addictions with the 12 step recovery and hope to read it over the coming weeks with an insight into recovery and finding goals for my life, realistic ones and ones away from gambling. Ive come to realise that my social groups however large they are mostly contain friends that are all addictid to something be it gambling, alcohol, weed, coke etc and that I'm now 37 id of thought we would be past this phase of our lives by now. I hope making this correct decision will in turn make for a less stressful

Life.ive managed to go through this relapse episode luckily without losing any money and as a result I would like to make my goal for 2018 not to be gamble free which I would have loved but to remain gamble free for eleven months of the year and to not have lost any money through it. Life is a rollercoaster and if it was easy to make the correct decisions throughout there where would the challenge be and the fulfillment when you've work hard for something and got the right result.

Good morning everyone. I'll have a catch-up either today or tomorrow; was away for the weekend (took my young son on a seaside holiday break).

And now off to work. Working hard; what's the point of handing my hard-earned money to the bookies? Or stuffing it in a fruit machine? Or sitting on my phone gambling losing while walking along? It makes zero sense.

Keep strong everyone - the alternative is the worst of all worlds. 

Catch-up later... :)

Time for a CATCH-UP!

Good afternoon all. I hope you're enjoying the weather and over the World Cup (big positive: the terrific attitudes instilled and demonstrated by our players; it makes you proud). 

So. Let's all look ourselves in the eye. Have we all put sufficient blocks in place so that we can't gamble even if we wanted to? We need to be wary of weaknesses in our resolve - weaknesses are part of our condition; they happen. If you do gamble, then it's because the blocks aren't good enough - pure and simple. We have to accept that our willpower is weak at times, and faulty.- we use it to conive to gamble again.

Amazon is having its summer sale on at the moment. Usually to shift all the c*** it's not been able to shift, but there are some genuine bargains. I bought a Phillips razor (£45) and rucksack (£15). All reduced. When you're not gambling, you are very likely to have free cash left over to take advantage of the deals this time of the month. Another reason not to gamble - it costs us more in every way.

Let's catch up!

Mitch91 - Edging to 100 days again, as you say, but this time, wiser, calmer and more focussed. What a time to stop - enjoying the summer with your loved ones. Keep an eye on those blocks - not just the sunblock :) You're makng great progress, Mitch.

4D - You've sailed through 300 days and that doesn't mean it's been 'plain sailing' either - being gambling-free is hard work and requires thorough preparation. Doing great 4D!

Christer - Yup, those cynical World Cup ads can 'do one'. The bookies had a massively successful World Cup so just as well we didn't gamble on it. Great to see you hit a month and not wasting your time and money. Not only that, your attention to more fulfilling pursuits and friends and loved ones 'ups' a notch - this is what life's about.

WhereIsMyMind - It's a pleasure having you here as part of our group, WIMM. As a team, we're just that little bit stronger and that can make a world of difference. Keep going - this is for life; one day at a time!

BigMug - heading towards 50 days gambling free but with no complacency whatsoever - that's the spirit and correct approach. We've got to be strong and put those blocks in place. Doing great guns!

Adam123 - I'm glad to see that you've reflected on your decision to go to the poker school at the pub. You've put it exactly right - "we (should) be past this phase of our lives by now". You're starting to look at your 'old' self and comparing it to your 'new' self; one that's fed up with all this s*** and wants to live a better way, a more fulfilling way. You're making a good decision here.

Godoicul - 200 days, smashing through that milestone and not stopping. And pacing yourself, at the same time - being gambling-free is a marathon, not a sprint. We can jog along quite contentedly, whilst, at the same time, telling gambling to 'jog on' !

Wardal - thank you for checking in and great to see you've gone past 50 days gambling free. These early milestones matter - they prove committment. 'Stickability', underpinned by as water-tight as set of blcoks as we can, is the key to our success!

Tara2 - thank you for checking in and glad to see you're 'steady as the ship sails'. Keeping on the level - in balance - keeps our natural 'karma' in place and leads to good things.

Egdam - thanks for checking in. Good to see you're gambling free 'still' - but remove the word 'still' as it implies a possible relapse in the future; one we must avoid at all costs. (I made the smae mistake - I said I was 'still' gambling-free, but that's a negative connatation we must avoid.

On a final note, I like to look at Youtube and am often browsing through. Of course, sometimes gambling videos hover into view. My advice? Steer clear of them. They are not what they seem. Whether on-line gambling, or in bookies, arcades, or pub, they are not what they seem. There are professionals who DO win - but, remember, we are NOT professionals. DO NOT get hooked into thinking you can become a professional from watching these videos. If anything, they should warn you NOT to gamble - you're just fodder providing easy money for the experts to win! 

Just steer clear of gambling videos; they are there, pure and simply, to suck you back into gambling. They are mostly run by affiliates hoping you'll join an online casino you've never heard of and you're chances of winning are zero. Because - if we do win, we give it back, then then more.

Enjoy the heatwave - let's have sunshine in the sky, and sunshine in our lives. Gambling? we're worth more than that.

All the best,

Mixer

Morning Guru Challengers around the world. I feel blessed that I can walk alongside you all on this noble journey. We are a worthy group of men and women sharing our hopes and dreams coupled with a desire to be rid of an insidious addiction which robbed us of our sanity and messed up our lives.

What's really strange is that people like ourselves can at times still look upon gambling with a certain sense of fondness !!! How crazy is that ??? I think it is similar to a victim of domestic violence who has been battered and bruised constantly but still harbours affection for the perpetrator.

Anyway enough of that. Stephen checking in, rocking on and rallying to the call - Yehaaa, woohoo and yabba dabba dooo

Brilliant post Mixer, I really enjoy reading your updates on here and isn't it just great to have the spare money in the bank to shop on Amazon Prime days and the like. For many years the bookies took every lasy penny, this last few weeks I too have had the spare cash for a few treats. Keep up the fight!

Hi Stephen try not to be too harsh on yourself, sometimes the urges are too much and the correct decision doesn't happen. I have to think that we can do this. One day at a time is the best idea ever as in so many times you just have to focus on each day and what you can get from it. I'm in a reflective mood today as one of my mates dad has had a heart attack and died just before he was about to retire. He had saved and saved bought a bungalow by the sea and was no doubt thinking about retirement but that happened to him. We have got to think how precious every day is save for the future but still live for the moment. Other friends of mine are currently making the wrong decisions by continuing to smoke weed and heavily as well and others are getting into debt by taking coke.

I try and give them encouragement to stop but it doesn't work. I gues there are going to be worse times ahead for them if their not careful. I don't know where I'm going with this but wanted to share, ive said not to two games of poker so far this week and have been to gym twice and will go tomo and over the weekend. Just bought some camping gear for next weekend but with that news I don't think we will go. I will finish by saying life is precious lets try and make the right choices but not beat ourselves up too much if we make a few incorrect ones. Adam

69 days gamble free

I’m still taking it one day at a time. I feel as though changing my mindset about gambling has helped me massively in my recovery.

The urges aren’t as frequent as they used to be and therefore feel less likely to be tempted back like in previous times.

Day 3 on the gamble free road. I have left the past behind and have embraced this wonderful opportunity to regain my freedom. From the bottom of my heart and the depths of my soul I renounce gambling and promise I will have nothing more to do with it. 

Having embarked on this journey of redemption, I feel a renewed sense of hope and optimism. My first mission is to get through today. My long term aim is to complete the Guru Challenge by remaining Gamble Free for 300 days.

The road ahead beckons me - with eyes wide open I can see...stephen

Determined Dan, What changes are you refering to when you say that you changed your mindset?  :) 

Ahhhh  as for me, I'm here today and tomorrow is another day. Just one long string of days.  tara2

Tara, I’ve been bolder and braver in my recovery this time round. The biggest move I made was to finally open up to my girlfriend about my gambling past and asked her to keep a close check on my financial transactions. That way it would limit my chances to gamble. The next step would be to hand over my bank card completely but I feel I would lose too much independence. However, if it’s neccessary then I will do. 

I’ve also done more research into why people gamble. I’ve rekindled old hobbies and set myself some long term goals to work towards. 

It hasn’t been easy. The first 20 days were a real battle. It’s only now that I’m beginning to feel some sort of financial reward for my continued abstinence.
