Hi boro, well done on executing 91 days! Remember you have won the battle but not the war, send for reinforcements and put up even more defenses to get to 200 days. Over and out, LC.

Don,t need anymore reinforcements mate. Everything in place for me to succeed this time. Went over 300+ days the last time even more prepared this time. I never beat the addiction mate but when them urges come along I fight them off

Cheers for commenting though last chance

Excellent battle plan. I went 110 days earlier this year then got over run, thought I was cured. On day 20 and looking forward to 50 and 100 etc. 300+ is major!

Yeah I was the same last chance I thought I was cured but I wasn't.Things spiralled out of control when I started again and I hit the bottom with a massive thud and still picking the pieces up now. But that's the past they a bright future ahead hopefully

I had another diary but the only log in details I can remember are for last chance. Couldn't bring myself to update the diaries back to day 1 again. I might take your advise and just continue with the last chance diary.

Well done in advance on day 92

Evening Graeme,
Thanks.x
Tough decision,,but you can make the right one now, because your mind is not filled with gambling.
Your Ex might surprise you, when you tell her why.
Well done on 101 days stay focused, because gambling is in the past now, and you have the choice to keep it that way.

Hi Graeme,
Understand what you are saying, my sons ex has zero tolerance with him when it's comes to little man, he has to have him when she says, no ifs and no buts.
It's not worth jeopardising your recovery, with pressure from new responsibilities at work and more stress from the ex.
You are doing fine, 104 days today, is great going.
Keep going and other stuff will fall into place.
Onwards and forwards

Hi Graeme,

I know exactly what you mean, I have actually had spare pennies for the last 2 months now and today my redundancy money went in.

Was already worrying about yesterday, the urges get very strong when we have spare cash, because we have not had any for months, we have been living on the minimum, bottom line, with out an inch to spare, and if any sudden extra bills had come in ie like car breaking down ,anything with house, we lived on none of that happening, and that was a different kind of buzz for us ( if that makes sense) it worried us, but now we can pay for any small emergencies, that horrible addiction is trying its hardest to slide us back in, and I am finding it hard, because I am now used to living on the edge with what if a big bill comes in unexpectedly,

We lived on the edge when gambling , it's still trying its hardest to keep us on our edge now we actually have a little spare cash,

Stay focused, the only way we keep spare cash is by continuing to abstain and maintain.

Suzanne xx

Hi graeme glad to see you're doing so well. Couldn't agree more with what you and Suzanne have said above, that spare cash only increases temptation. The key is finding that new mindset to be able to cope and move on, but im definitely finding it hard to get to that place.
Up the boro! Went to the match last week we looked really good, think we will be up there right til the end this time.

hi borro , not been on for ages , the site has changed since i was last on aswell , so having to find my way around all over again , not that ide got it that well sorted last time lol , all is good not relapsed as not gammbled since my last stupid stint . I am really really happy and pleased you have done a 100 days and more well done im proud of you 128!!! days now well done, i honestly think last time i gammbled i learned something knew , i learned that if i was up , down or break even money wise while gammbling i learned i could just not stop , not walk away no matter what the situation was , so i have learned i have no self control when gambling none whatsoever , then i have learned then there is no point to starting to gamble in the first place . This im sure is the same for you , so keep your spare cash spend it on your daughter , or open a bank account for her setting up a direct debit maybe and tell that urge to go take a hike as i have learned its just pointless so tell yourself that when you have this urge again . Again really happy your doing well , not forgotton to come on here just felt had to get away for a while. PS i did get emotional on saturday or friday as was listening while at work to radio when a big bit came on about problem gambling , and a few addicts spoke a few people spoke about what there doing to help ie casino people and also someone from gamcare , also a few people who just dont understand who commented aswell although the guy asking questions was pretty good, all the best simon
