Hi Boro,

That must be really difficult for you as like you say it is a reminder but you must also remember what you have acheived over the past 96 days and the reasons why you are doing this.

Try and go easy on yourself remember you had an illness 96 days ago you wasnt a bad person and it wasnt that you didnt love your kids or Girlfriend it was just that the addiction was stronger than anything else in you life. Another reason why we should never go back and stay away from that first bet.

Its amazing what you have done and continue to do, You can be happy it might not feel it sometimes but you can, each day you stay gamble free your stepping towards that.

Chin up boro, Your doing something amazing every day.

Take care
Blondie

day 97 gamble free. Had an argument with the x girlfriend this morning about me having kids on sunday. I always pick them up at 10 oclock but she decided to change it to 11 i dont really mind but everytime i have asked for it to be slightly later she goes mad. Plus i have thoughts of why 11 oclock is she out with a bloke saturday and she need time to recover the nexted morning i no its none of my business but i still love her and its killing me.

Day 100 gamble free.

The first 4 weeks were hard because i had no money but the other 72 days have been easy because i have every block in place for me not being able to gamble. If i didnt have them blocks in place the temptation would probably be they. I have realised i dont need gambling in my life. I used to think i could not live without it. I have to thank my mam and brother who have supported me threw all this, would not no were i would be if it wasnt for them. Probably in a gutter somewhere

Hi boro. Congrats for reaching 100 days gamble free. I understand fully, I also lost my gf due to gambling. It's been 10 months now and still think about her everyday. You never know what the future has reserved for us my friend. I know is hard to hide the frustration when you love someone and you have all those thoughts about her being with someone else but...there's not a lot we can do about that. Just to keep on the straight and narrow and hope that they'll realize that this time we really want and did change. In your case is even harder as kids are involved. Keep strong and positive my friend...

Thank you boro. I'm sorry things didn't get to work out between you and your gf. We think that we are smart and can hide things and lie to everyone including ourselves,but sooner or later our lies catch up with us and we realize that the most important thing that we lost is our loved ones. We'll replace the money, the houses, cars but we can't replace our loved ones. You, like myself woke up a bit too late for our relationships to be saved. And even though we know fully well that we were wrong so many times, we expect life to stand still for all the others so we can give it another shot. Unfortunately life doesn't come with a rewind button and there only so many times we can be forgiven for the same mistake. Don't hate your gf. We all need someone in our lifes. Only thing u can do is to prove yourself first of all that u can do this. You're not doing this for her, you do it for yourself. You don't know what the future holds for you. We can't expect them to believe in words no more. If you really love her, you want her to be happy, don't you?? Be the best you can be for your daughter and for your ex. Gamblers never win and winners never gamble!!! All the best

Alright mate well done on 111 days its a fantastic achievement.
Just read through your diary and seen lots of comparisons between yourself and me, I lost everything through gambling and have made it to a year now gamble free and its amazing.
I went to NECA as well do you see Julie she was great for me and really helped.
Stay strong and keep up the great work my friend

I ment nothing bye it i no she loves her mam more. She turned round and said you are upsetting her bye asking her this. So the kids are telling tales so i have said i dont want them this weekend. Now im feeling guilty. Not in a good place at the minute
