Congratulations Zoe on your excellent progress. You kept it to yourself in the chatroom but a little bird has just told me that you are now over 200 days into your gamble free adventure.
You have consistently shown what a remarkable lady you are and I have the utmost respect for all you have achieved.
The gamble free road is windy and long but on many occasion you have brought joy to your fellow travellers with your friendly, caring and compassionate nature.
Wishing you every happiness as you continue on your journey.

Good morning diary ,
fell sleep early last night must of needed it after upping my weights , I don’t think I was ready to up them was tired straight after working out but to lazy to put them back down after my lad had used them 😂🤣, not got much to do today clean and a little shop hope everyone has a good day if I get everything done I will pop on chat to say hello 😘
Oldest son come round last night , we had a really long chat about things . He come on his own was nice to just sit and talk about stuff seems opening up and talkIng about gambling and the dangers have had a impact on him he was telling me all the things he has put into place so he can’t gamble Since we last spoke , I don’t no why I felt I couldn’t talk to him at the start was it embarrassing fear ashamed I don’t really no , alls I no is once I did open up I dint sugar coat it It all rolled of my tongue if that’s enough to stop him from following in the same footsteps I’ll be a happy mum , 😘
That’s really positive that it’s out in the open and you can talk honestly with both of them now. Sounds like he’s reacted amazingly and the real positive is if it educates and puts them off gambling, it makes our past mistakes worth it if we can prevent and educate our children from ever starting off on the same road.
Heartwarming and inspirational posts by Zoe & Lively.
Full of admiration and respect the courage shown by you both in telling your offspring exactly what you have been through and how you were totally in the grip of gambling addiction.
I think you have both shown incredible bravery and honesty.
