Still thoughts of Matched Betting, particularly at the beginning of a new football season linger on. I’ve been GF for 5 months now but this is the first time I’ve given it much of a thought which is a little concerning. Anyway, my holiday is a few days away, so can switch off for a few weeks.
Halfway through hols. Beautiful hotel, wonderful food, blazing hot weather, everyone relaxed.
Last night the cards came out, joined in for a while, then at the end, my OH decided to introduce the kids to pontoon / Blackjack, and even asked me to get involved - the very game which has been my undoing to the tune of 10’s thousands over 11 years. Thankfully no one was that interested so it only lasted 5 mins. She even started explaining the rules to me. All done in good humour, but although she knows about my past, I never have been convinced that she has truly grasped, nor really wanted to understand the enormity of my battle.
Anyway, a very surreal moment.
Almost 6 months since my last gamble - mostly thanks to Gamstop which has cutoff access entirely, so, barring 2 or 3 days at the beginning of the football season, gambling thoughts have hardly entered my mind.
Financially, still in a bad way, but managing to clear debt, slowly but surely - currently on course to have the CC debt shifted in around 18months.
Anyway, onwards and upwards !
