Well done Matt692 & K2, great achievement!
weirdly I had a real moment of weakness sitting in the car on Friday on the way home, tempted to go the cash point then bookies. Can't for the life of me explain why. I normally feel like retching if unavoidably I as much as walk past a bookies.
Just a reminder for me to keep guard up & avoid any hint of complacency.
Sometimes it hard to pinpoint a reason for thought/desire. I still work incredibly hard at recognising, naming, accepting and feeling my feelings/emotions without needing to change or avoid them. This is something I believe was the driving force to my addiction. I remember many years ago I was told by my therapist that feelings won't kill you and they just come and go if you let them be and don't fight them.
Well done for not making a poor choice!
Checking in. Over 250 days GF.
Finding myself not visiting here as much as it’s not on my mind. Not getting complacent, but no urges or thoughts. V busy with work, family and life. Gotta be a good thing?
What more can you ask for? Great position to be in, well done
day 22 for me, not even an urge yet.
i lasted 292 days from august to end of may then went back to my old ways. Thankfully it was small stakes however last saturday i went and placed a bet in a bookie im excluded from and played on a fruit machine, with this in mind i feel i have gone back to my old ways and need to take all possible steps to avoid going back to the dark days of gambling and the soul destroying feeling after a large loss. With this in mind my last gamble was on tuesday 3rd sept 2019....................lets go again adam123 day 5
