[Closed] 2020 challenge - weekly check in - ALL WELCOME !  

Page 1 / 12

Basically just a thread where you can check in each week and update your own number of days.

Not really (in my opinion) about specifically not gambling in 2020, but about more about not gambling again for life.

Anyone is welcome, regardless of how few or how many days - after all, for many people the importance of the number of days declines with time.

Anyone is welcome to join in any time they feel able to.


Well done everyone checking in on the old thread

1st day check in for me stopped gambling online 5th dec working on being able to pay off debts and finally saving . Gamestop in place can no longer log in anywhere and tbh I dont want to. Weird how before when I used to take a breather from gambling sites I was fine but the minute I knew the time had elapsed and I could log on again I would go and spend everything thing I had left over after paying normal bills etc when I think of all the money I have wasted on on line slots etc I could cry. But onwards and upwards I will not fail on this
