Ah rob

100 days gamble free! These days are certainly tough to rack up... And you have conquered. Fair play 😉

Keep your feet on the ground and stay focused, never stop working at this and guard up at all times ✊

I hope you are feeling the benefits of a gamble free existence - this ride only gets better of course 😁 

Take care

Hi Rob,

 

Thank you for your post on my diary. It's really good to see you marching on and racking the g free days. The choice is ours and you truly demonstrate how possible it is to make the right one..Truly well done 🙂

 

I started to think that gambling addiction is the worst of them all. Affects us more mentally...and when you don't feel well within yourself emotionally, it starts affecting us physically too. The balance of the two is truly important as these cannot go without each other.

 

I hear your pain also. The destruction last slip brought over. I understand because I feel the same...

 

Please continue to make the right choice and keep getting better accordingly. You matter, you have life ahead to fulfil and enjoy. 

 

You're worth it 

 

Stay safe and have a good Sunday also.

 

S&B xx

Thank you Rob, your kind words are really appreciated. 

 

I always found it difficult to see what others sees in me. ..I guess it's natural self confidence issue, lack of it I suppose.

 

Presently I didn't help myself at all...and if one person says I'm bad, i automatically think the whole nation is against me. Tough thought process I still need to figure out and change.

 

 

Hope your day has been good! Cricket sounds nice & relaxing way to spend time. My gardening is only half done as only managed to sort the hedge out (it's truly massive and took me 2hrs). I guess cutting grass, sorting patio out & the rest of it will have to wait till tomorrow. 

 

Best wishes and positive thoughts yoir way, keep being kind to you.

 

S&B xx

Hey Rob,

 

Thanks for your post. Yes, we are definitely on the same page here experiencing raw pain...yes, the more highs and larger stakes - the more lows and devastation to follow.

 

I am actually surprised I'm alive and that's how real this addiction gets. Don't think I will ever forget my binge gambling at 03:10 am having to get ready for work at 03:15. All I thought about that night was ringing in sick...every minute of it.....but I went in...shamefully risking my own and others safety as I was not fit for work, nor commute, nor alertness...death trap...in constant fog.

 

I know how painful slips can be but at this point I don't believe I will not do it again..however if I do...it will get worse...I guess presently I am not exactly caring for my health..is there any more damage can be done?...yes....one way ticket huh..

 

However, we must push on. It does get better and I remember it getting better. ...for now, it doesn't but maybe time is needed. 

 

I am kind to me. ..miraculously I sorted garden out, looked after my fitness and also wellbeing by cooking and getting some rest...it can only improve I guess...ohhh...hold on..I'm back to tiring shifts soon lol..darn!

 

I hope you're well. ...do look after you...one life one you..all that stuff 🙂

 

Catch you later, thank you for your support.

 

S&B xx

No thoughts of gambling. But I have had abstained before and gone back many times. So I’m here for the long run. Best wishes to all.

Hi Rob,

 

Thanks again for your support. Congratulations on g free time! This is truly good result so far, keep on making the right choice.

 

Now, in your last entry you mentioned you abstained before...are you not in recovery? ..and also may I ask, what recovery means to you?

 

In your supportive posts to others you sound a lot more than just abstaining...so I guess, I just wanted to understand a bit more about your journey to life without gambling.

 

Best wishes

 

S&B xx

Hi Rob,

Very well done on your continued abstinence. 

You really deserve it and I am very happy for you.

Your progress has left mine behind in the dust I am afraid but I am searching for the light.

Take care of yourself.

Best wishes,

Mark

Hello all

i just wanted to say hello. 180 days GF.

I am okay. Will soon be 6 months. I hope all of my friends on here are doing okay. It is not been easy in other aspects of my life but my determination to remain GF is strong.

Please stay strong all. If you are on here you can’t stop when you start. Win or lose. In fact we just lose.

Best to all.
