99 days gamble free

So I've been gambled free for 99 days. I'm wondering how have I managed to stop with so much ease this time. When my previous attempts have failed. Is it all in the mind?? I've registered with gamstop, I've told my family about my addiction and I think it's the thought of letting them down that has made stopping easier this time. I haven't placed a bet in 99 days. The longest I have ever gone and it's been brilliant. I also had CBT therapy to help with my low mood which was great and I would recommend this as part of your gambling recovery as it all starts in the mind. If your happier in yourself then it might make giving up the gambling habit a bit easier. I'm proud of how far I have come and it does get easier with time. Once you start having money again and your able to buy things it makes you wonder why did I ever bother with gambling in the first place. Don't give up guys keep persevering and u can do it.  Even if your past attempts have failed doesn't mean you can't succeed the next time. Never say never. I know it's only been 99 days but that's the longest I have ever gone without gambling so that's a huge achievement for me!!

Just signed up 30 mins ago to Gamstop I feel great. I was gamble free a few years ago and always had money, sadly I went back.  Here’s to the future 😀

Congratulations. I've got 89 days to go to match your current status, but it's great to read about the positive steps you've taken to make sure that this is the last time. 

I was previously 5 months gamble free, but didn't take those steps like Gamstop at the time, so you're in a great place to keep this going. From my side, this is a real sobering reminder to make sure that I don't get complacent and follow through on the promises to be fully transparent with my finances and complete my own sign up on Gamstop. 

Congratulations and good luck with the rest of your recovery.
