It is 3.00 am and I’m wide awake reading the forum feeling low! Full day of work to do no motivation and the thought just send me to think gamble! I just can’t seem to get myself up and at it! I veg feel c**P, eat rubbish and just get more and more less motivated to do anything! This then leads to gambling. Round the merry go round again!
i need to get off!

Day 3 - had a slightly better sleep night last evening, ready for the day ahead, reading Allen Carr book on the Addiction and the pleasure crutch, this really hit the spot with me feeling c**P, thinking gambling will make me feel better (and it does while gambling, or if you win, but there is no end!). Looking forward to read more
Wow is the week over - I have had a good week, initially driven from Sunday, I was persuaded /(forced) to do a job on Sunday that has been due for over a year! This led to a decision to do some exercises and this has continued through the week, my focus been much better alongside motivation. No gambling / no real thoughts I have been “too busy” there is a clear weakness of Poor motivation and then filling that with gambling. Exercise mental and physical is important to me, it fills time and helps motivate. Day 12 all good
