Keep it up don't be tempted by those emails they're there to lure you in. It's hard to resist but well done!

You'll feel so much better knowing there was a chance and you turned your back on it. That's always a good sign that you're willing and wanting to be free of this awful disease!

Hi and welcome to the forum.

Have you told a family member or someone close you trust?

Recovery is about the focus to realise this is far more than just the willpower of thinking I will stop. Its a nasty insidious addiction looking for any opportunity for temptation especially in the early stages.

Im just giving you food for thought as I dont soft soap the issue. You state you are having problems installing gamstop  so that avenue is left wide open. You brought gambling into your home and you have gadgets. That is something that needs extra monitoring.

The wet Tuesday afternoon comes around and you may have bad news or be stressed. Unexpected bills to pay...... bit cheesed off .....dull day...Do you see how it can arise again without the strongest of blocks?

Yes obviously Im glad you have made a start buts its got to be from square one with solid foundations. If it was just a case of deleting and blacklisting a few emails there would be no need for this forum.

I will talk tough because I care about you. Its the people that make you think that you will eventually thank the most.

I wish you all the best and hope you will keep learning about the worst addiction I know
