Thankyou for your unwavering support Sharon and Loxxie.
I'm doing fine thanks.
I've got personal problems and faults with my house that need fixing etc but nothing that brings me down as low as when I gamble.
There are times when it just hits you, how good you feel when you haven't been gambling. I've said it before but I'll say it again, you walk around, without that troublesome heavy weight on your shoulder. You feel good about yourself.
I noticed this last week, it just hit me. I was walking through my place of work, smiling at people as I went with a spring in my step. I just thought to myself, this is great, this is how I want to feel. The only time I feel like this is when I'm not gambling.
Fortunately for me, I've only gambled a few times, probably for a week or so at a time, over the last year. I've had my fill of months on end walking with that black cloud above my head. I know for a fact, gamble free is the only way. When gamble free, my mental health improves massively.
Can you believe that for Christmas my children put together for a plane ticket for me to go and see my son who lives in Australia!!!
I'll be going in our summer, just after he's had my second grandchild!! How lucky am I!!!
Loxxie, you've been my guiding light. As you asked in the post above how I am, it's lovely to share this news with you.
Why would I gamble and mess this up?? I'm determined not to. My family deserve a better mum and I'm doing all I can to make sure that's what they get.

All good wishes

That is such wonderful news Lml and I am so pleased for you. You are a very special lady and your family will always love and respect you for the love and affection you have shown them throughout there lives. 

Thank you so much for the poem you posted on my diary. I have read it several times over and I will read it many times in the future. Two verses in particular had a great impact on me:

"Maybe all that you need to achieve gamble free,

Is some self-belief,

That you are worthy!"

&

"If I had a wand,

I'd wave it your way,

And make this one wish,

Gamble free, you will stay."

I sometimes try to picture my guardian angels watching over me. From now on, if ever I am troubled by thoughts of gambling I will ask the angels to make a space for you and your wand. The Angels are very loving and will be delighted to have you alongside them....Stephen x
