I stopped gambling 3 days ago, I know it doesn’t sound like much but for me (especially over a weekend) it’s huge. Having read many people’s stories of success it was clear that I would have to come clean with my wife and tell her every detail. I finally did it and it is such a weight off my shoulders. She truly is one in a million and instead of judging told me how proud she was that I had sought help. I advise anyone at the early stages of stopping to do the same.
I know its early days but it really does feel different this time!
I know you say that 3days isn't a lot but its great my friend as you've chosen to come clean to your partner and most of us keep this a secret and this causes us to try and chase our losses and that's the worst thing we can do as we only get in much more stress trying to hide and gain the money back. I think you should also put blocks in place just in case you relapse this way given you damage limitations. Your a star doing everything right, I don't know how much you've lost but put it down to experience and start one day at a time gamble free and you'll save so much not gambling things will get better that's for sure keep up the good work as your a star being honest
Today is the best I have felt in years, telling my wife last night and then having a good sleep I woke up feeling great! I am actually looking to ticking off little milestones along the way. I am preparing myself for getting through the first payday but I am full of beans at the moment and I’m not going to let anything stop me from being gamble free!
