Massive congratulations on achieving one year! You should be so proud of your achievement, with all the hard work and effort you have put into your recovery.

Best wishes with the now imminent move, hope it all goes smoothly.
Thank you Steven & Last Chance. Your kind words of support and encouragement make me ever more determined to remain gamble-free.
One of the valuable lessons I have learnt from Gamcare friends is that I will always be just one bet away from disaster and must be careful not to become complacent.
Probably I was aware of that in the past but addiction played games with my mind and led me to believe I wasn't really a gambling addict.
I know better than that now and if ever I am feeling vulnerable than I will visit the diaries.
This is all new ground to me because I have never been gamble-free for a year in my entire adult life. It feels a bit surreal.
So I will continue my recovery just one day at a time.
