Hi I haven’t logged in for a while now but I’ve just logged in and seen I’m 478 days gamble free ! And don’t get me wrong at the start of this I did NOT think I’d get here . Before this I had gone 202 days gamble free before and then blew it all again, but here I am ! Also don’t get me wrong days at the start are so tough ! Or for me I found it was anyway I always used to gamble on football matches and the weekends were terrible for me but as each week has passed it’s got easier and easier for me. I had a sharp reminder though that this is a recovery for life as I had a very shocking thing happen probably around 300 days and if I didn’t have gam stop blocks in place so I physically couldn’t bet I would of , on that occasion to I also rang the gam care help line as a emotional wreck and they were a massive help too ! I know I’m rambling a bit and I apologise but I basically wanna just say even though that it is possible to stay away from gambling just never fall into a trap of thinking you are “cured” as mentioned before I have relapsed before , many many times . And for that reason alone I won’t let myself loose focus. We all have this for life but we can all control it with help and support. Good luck to everyone !!

and remember WE CAN DO IT!!

🙂

Do you mind me asking what you put in place to stop gambling?

Gamban , blocks in the actual betting shops. But the biggest thing drew was will power, I mean I tried to stop before without 100% wanting too . But this time I just really had enough, but yeah as much as will power is fine you need proper blocks . I always did online gambling mainly so gamban literally blocks you from pretty much every site. It’s been a massive help for me , sorry for the late reply drew I don’t come here everyday
