What a load of shite the boro are but nevermind. Gambling wise no thoughts whatsoever. It will be in 4 or 5 months time when I have to guard against complacency because that's when I have me money build back up again and that's when I think I can gamble again. But not this time

Well done mate and you're right about the boro! You've got a good way of thinking about things and I'm similar-i know I won't gamble in the near future because I can't, but when/if I ever get money that's when the real problems will have to be faced and complacency sets in.

Hi Graeme
You are doing great
Try not to think about negatives in the future think of today because you are winning today and that is a very big positive
One day at a time moving forwards not backwards
Have a good day

Hey Graeme
The aftermath of gambling is horrendous in lots of ways, I know what you mean but it would a hell of lot shittier by now if we had continued or go back
CGs are not very patient but we have to be because slowly but surely life will be better
I try to not think of if only now, because if only has been done and dusted
Anyway I know where you are coming from so you are not in your own
Take care

72 days gamble free

The urge to gamble is not they but like I have said before it will be when I get money soughted and have a lot of spare cash that's when I have to have me guard up

Got paid today so overdraft at minus 1300 is not bad which gives me 1200 to live on for the month.

My concern is xmas which I have 2 kids to pay for. I normally spend about 200 each on them but that will have to go down to a 100. But I can guarantee next year at this time my life will be so much better I hope and pray any way

I have been on this gambling forum for over 2 years and the amount of people who go a lot of days gambling free i.e myself included relapse. Why do we do it.

Just over 3 weeks to the century I can guarantee they will be a few more to come

Looking at paper today and looked at the horse racing pages and thought to myself I miss having a bet on the horse but I no I cant because that leads to roulette. Roulette is my enemy and it will not defeat me again

What a performance mark I was well proud never seen out like that I thought it was never going to end. The pens were a bonus because I thought we were out, then sterling made that mistake. But what was keeper doing for Liverpool first goal. I be gutted if we don't get in playoffs this season. Tomlin clayton and **** were excellent like and I think we will struggle to keep reach. Saying that they was no weak leak really

Had kids today when I dropped them off at they new home because they have just moved they mam said do you want to come in and have a look. I had to say no and say its got nothing to do with me she was shocked when I said no. I wanted to go in but I have to be strong, she would have only bragged about the house any way. Still hurts enormously and I do still love her but that's the past

I know exactly how you feel on that score , my ex loves to bragg about what she just got , although my situation a little different but wont bore you with the details , your doing so well , day 84 , well really happy for you , I think my penny has dropped we will see . The scary thing is there doesn't seem to be any let up in the amount of new people on here with gambling problems , surely something has got to give regarding gambling , or is even though a lot of people with this problem its still a small enough percentage of the population so no one cares , who knows anyway , whats done is done , lets carryon, feeling a bit more positive today after a lot of reading on here
