Day 8 done and dusted. Hosted a family bbq today for my Mum’s birthday. Gambling never entered my head until I came in here earlier this evening. I am really pleased with how I’m feeling. When you gamble, a lot of the time you feel disappointed in yourself. I felt I let my parents down. They knew I’d previously had problems, but didn’t know to what extent. They thought it was under control as I continued to gamble.
Now I am able to look them in the face 😀
So today is two weeks gambling free. So anyone who isn’t a CG that won’t mean a lot. To us, it’s a lot. But for me personally, I’m so happy that the spell that gambling cast upon me is weakening by the day.
Why oh why do we become complacent? Why can’t we see this demon for what it is? Why do we suddenly one day out of the blue think we can have a “little go” and there will be no repercussions to our actions?
Thinking about it logically, it really doesn’t matter if you’re 1, 10, 100 or 1000 days GF. What’s more important is where you’re at. How much you believe your life will improve if you don’t gamble.
What’s very tough for some is coming to terms with what’s lost. I’ve never dwelt on that. Maybe because my boyfriend supports me. If I didn’t have him, no doubt things for me would be very different.
I’m waffling. Time to read a little more of Captain46’s diary 😉
