224 days gf.

There are times where I worry that it has become too easy and I need to remind myself that I am a compulsive gambler and never to forget the damage I done to my family.

Baby is due in May, I am still employed (albeit not as secure as I would like it atm) and things are good with the family.

I am proud of myself.

Today I wont gamble.

Hi, just seen your latest post so decided to read your journey from the start and what a story it is, warts and all, showing all the ups and downs of recovery. It's things like this that should be shown to people starting out on their recovery to tell them that it won't be plain sailing, there will be major downs as well as the upside but if you persevere with all the blocks in place and the help of those closest to us you can succeed.

I know what you mean about worrying it is becoming too easy, but I think it's mainly because life is returning to how it used to be. All we need to do is realise we are still recoving from this addiction, not let our guard down and be proud of our success so far.

For me I have just passed the 5 month mark gamble free and can relate to a lot of what you say but life is so much better.

Well done on your success so far

Thank you Bladesman. It means alot, and it has not been easy, especially the first 2 months.
