Well its been 10 months since i told my husband that i was gambling heavily. What a day that was. Very emotional. I had to tell him as i was using the business account to gamble. He never looked at the bank statements so i was getting away with it. However the bank manager spotted these transactions- luckily for me really. I had to stop otherwise they would close the account. I had stopped my own bank cards due to gambling. My husband now has charge of the bank card and i have never seen it or want to see it. I have a Monzo account and they are BRILLIANT. I have a limit of £120 a day for food and clothes. I am unable to gamble as there is a gambling block and i have registered with Gamstop. I wish I could bottle this feeling and sell it on. I feel free for the first time since 14 years. I am never looking back and this Christmas is going to be special. I can spend money now without feeling guilty. GIVE UP now please don’t wait and say one more go do it NOW
Hey and well do e on your journey so far!
I identified few key elements in your successful recovery - finally opening up to loved one, physical blocks and the magical freedom you are feeling this Christmas.
Combination of these can only help you move forward in your journey to more fulfilling future. Plus, there are many more avenues on a way to help you stay stopped. Keep on going - you deserve it!
Ps. Very generous daily limit from Monzo, over here I'm limiting mine to like £20 a say (not even every day).🙃
Keep on the straight and narrow, good things will keep coming!
Thanks very much for your kind words. You have to want yo stop and this happened 10 months ago 😄😄
