They no chance m8 of boro been promoted going to be a long season i think. But lets hope im wrong.
Life so much better at the moment,yes i think about what i have lost but that makes me more determined to have a gamble free life for the rest of my life. Yes me daughters mam makes things worse bye judging me and making things harder. But she just a b**** who is not worth my time. Every chance she gets she has a go bye calling me a waster and a lier.
This hurts because i do still love her but its time to move on from her as well.
BORO FOR PROMOTION TO PREM!

day 38. A long day ahead with me being at work till 8. Nothing more to say really. Apart from its nice to be on day 38 without gambling on anything and not even having the thought to gamble. But my problem normal starts when i start and get meself on track money wise and have plenty of money to gamble with. Where as at the minute i only have a little money to live on. But i no gamble is the thing of the past for me

Hi Boro,
I am new to this site but have read your diary and been inspired by your need to stop. You say you are in work till 8, that is one long day, but what a fantastic acheivement getting to day 38 without a relapse. You must have been paid within those 38 day's so you have overcome the urge to gamble having had money in your hand. You should congratulate yourself. I hope I can resist the urge after my next pay day, but like you I keep telling myself now gambling is a thing of the past. Stay strong today and think of what you can do or buy to make your life better with the money that you have earned today. Keep up the good work.

Hi kathy
It is a fantastic achievement kathy and it feels really good. At day 1 i was lower than i have ever been in my life. But things are starting to look up and i have realised i cant gamble because i cant stop weather i win or not. I just didnt have control i would win 500 one day and go and lose a 1000 the next. Whats the point in that. Yes i have been paid within them 38 days but i dont have anymoney, i have let me brother take control of me money. He gives me money if i need some for petrol and things like that but i cant get me hands on any large quantity of cash which i am pleased about. I no i would not go and gamble but it aint worth the risk. Thanks for the support kathy

You would have felt even sicker had you been in the process of a gambling spree.

The sickness will pass.

And 48 days is brilliant, not long until 50!

Ya know mate I know that........Maybe it's time for you to seek some legal help. You are the dad...you have rights!

I am a woman and I never ever stopped my ex from seeing his daughter......that is just so wrong.
Have you not got anyone close (family) who could intervine?

You really are going so well....dont want anything to come between that!

Am rooting for you Buddy.

53 day. Feeling sick because all i can think about is not seeing my daughter. Things are going to turn nasty i think. I took these two weeks off to have her more. This is all down to gambling. But she should not stop me from seeing my daughter. They no reason for her to suffer.

She not a reasonable women sue going to have to leave it for a few weeks and see what happens
