So I have made it to 32 days gamble free. It seems like such a small victory, but it’s been so long since I’ve made it this far. As soon as the new year came around I promised myself 2022 had to be the year I stop for good. I have put everything possible in place to help me stop, but I am petrified of relapsing and finding a way. I feel in control right now but I still have triggering thoughts of past wins. I need to keep reminding myself that putting those small wins aside I’ve had 100’s of times where I’ve been left it utter despair losing everything. I am one of the lucky ones who hasn’t lost my family or friends to this disease, and I’m trying to draw on that so much for strength. I love reading everyone’s success stories, it really does give me hope and a focus
I love reading all the success stories here, and I pray I can come back in 32 more days to say I’ve made it through another month
Sending love to everyone fighting the daily fight, and I show admiration to those who are recovering each day
