Hi airbag, try posting more often helps keep you grounded and there nothing wrong about how you feel it's how you deal with it is the thing . I am guilty in the past of using gambling to deal with stress but I know different now, gambling adds to the stress, gambling is not the answer. Stay on the path you are on and in the long run your life will be happier and more fulfilling. 4months gamble free I'm happier calmer more stable than I have been in years I obviously still get times of upset/ stress but I'm trying to deal with things in a different way, I can say 100% that one bet/ spin of a slot would be disaster for me and that knowledge keeps me going forward. Try when you feel nervous anxious write a longer post putting things down in words helps especially when you read it back, also take 10 mins to read other people's posts remind yourself of the pain and suffering gambling causes renew your determination to lead a gamble free life. Above all 88 days is so good be pleased with yourself then keep going, that's what I'm doing day by day
huge congratulations on your 100 days gamble free!
