New me? Right?

So, Saturday I made a conscious choice to give this torment the boot.  I spent all day Sunday and feeling so incredibly low.  Yesterday I slipped and spent £20.  So what it’s just £20, right? No wrong!!!! Why can’t I just give up, some may say I’m weak. I agree I am weak.  Time to get some proper help.  I feel positive all day then the next day life will happen and I’ll do a quick spin to paper the cracks.  Except no amount of paper will ever be big enough.  Been in contact with gamstop today.

Your not weak Boo , it's just addiction doing what it does best keeping you going back because it promises you so much but gives you nothing but misery . 

It took me many years to finally stop the rot but I know those feeling's all too well , the ones where  you have  a few day's away from gambling thinking your some how cured and  addiction whispers in your ear " It's ok this time will be different " ? , trouble is mate it never is and the cycle just goes back on repeat . 

There's no magic pill or cure for this and it is about just pushing through one minute , one hour , one day sometimes and not giving in until you finally break that cycle .

It can and will change my friend but you really have to want it more than you want that next bet 🙂 . 

Take care fella .

Hey BOO 🙂 

We fight so much with our inner self " Should I shouldn't I " and " Nobody would know " ? are all thing's I went through , the trouble is nothing changes and if we give into temptation the whole cycle just carries on and we have another " DAY 1 " to contend with and we all know that feeling right ? . 

Like anything the thought's will pass my friend but until they do you have to distract the mind for a while and it really doesn't matter  how you do it as long as you do it , I think my worst was going and having a cold shower 🙂 , the shock took the urge away but made something else dwindle too :)) , not ideal but it worked :)).

Stay well and keep on keeping on 🙂
