Ive read all 25 pages. Please dont use willpower... Im a bit harsh please excuse me.... But when using this it feels like something precious is taken away from you! It isnt, its escaping black hell! People who use willpower will unfortunately break or at rare cases, fight their whole life. Its miserable! Gamblers are WILLFULL! They gamble even if they have to stay awake 24 hours straight. That takes a strong will. Its not a conflict of will, but an addiction! You need to make your desire to gamble vanquish. You need to truly see gambling as it is. This really does not have to be a fight, provided you dont use willpower. I have since october been on and off. 3 months absence every attempt. But this time I have finally figured my triggers and am fully prepared this time. I have no desire to gamble, but when it last came I got caught and trapped because I forgot what I have learned. Im now taking actions to reming myself every 3 months(or when I start getting forgetful)

Ive seen you struggle multiple times by your posts. Its dangerous. Thats why using willpower is so scary.

Cheers

Blocks are in place online, so not a chance that can happen, as long as I keep calm  I will refrain from gambling.Willpower can win, I want this , everyone is different and if I fail I will be my biggest critic.

For now I’m GF , it’s a start, I’m in no position to change the way I do things so on I go.

 

cheers

Day 176 begins, good day at the football yesterday, had a lot of temptations around me, being with a non gambler helped.
