Day 54,

Well done Boro.....despite all that has been thrown at you still remaining gamble free.........Brilliant job!

I know that you so desperatly want to see your daughter. Is it just 1 you have....heard you mention 2 at times..is that step child?

Is she at an age that you could write to her/ has a mobile/ family member to pass messages?

It's so cruel for a parent to take things out on the child.....Believe me I know mate.......my ex husband took my daughter away from me. I really can understand your pain.

day 67

The days are flying carl. Im at that point were i am over what i did 67 days ago. It still hurts but i have moved on. I get great strength out of reading other peoples diaries and thinking the people who think they can still have even a 1 pound bet are kidding themselves. To be honest i used to be that way. But i now no that for a compulsive gambler that is a big mistake thats why i gamble on absolutely nothing and i wont for a very long time, maybe never again because my life is so much better

Well done Boro, keep up the good work.
Even if you've got nothing else to share its good to see someone staying gambling free amongst the many that are not so fortunate.
Just make sure you are always concious of not becoming complacent... Many a recovery had been destroyed because of it.

day 89 gamble free. Feeling good about not gambling but feeling down about x girlfriend. She was my life and gambling ruined it. Im turning that into me being more determined never to gamble again because its not worth it. I have gone from having me own house living with girlfriend, daughter and step son. To back living with me mam. These people who continue to gamble when they partners have supportered them. Just need to look at my situation to see what happens
