Hiya Skinnyfat. Congratulations on deciding to stop gambling.
We know how it feels because we all started our recovery on day one. The gamble free days soon add up though and as we get further away from the last bet than things can look better.
Great idea of yours to write in your diary. It can help to express how we are feeling.
day 2 , going well , very productive day. Getting a lot done around the house which feels good . Skint until payday but doesn’t really matter to be honest as everything is in good order. Have a nice few things to look forward to aswell , trying to keep myself calm busy and relaxed while expressing more gratitude.
Hi Skinny fat, congratulations on taking the first step and 2 days gamble free 🙂 I’m still at the beginning of journey myself and can’t give too much advice, although I’ve now reached 52 days, but I would like to comment and say good luck. It does get easier and it’s true what everyone says, one day at a time is the easiest way to look at it. Keep going 🙂
