Sorry to hear about this. In reflection, you know that this was probably not a good thing to ask and hey, we all make mistakes in life. Perhaps it would be best to really apologise to her and suggest that you both take an united front a give a message to your kids by saying that you both love them equally.

Kids are at a crucial age these days and what really matters at the end of the day is that they get love and support from both of you.

Well done on the 125 days boro, you are an inspiration.

Sorry to read about your issues with the kids, just remember they are young and as long as you are in their life and are a good man they will love you forever.

Take it easy boro and keep ya head high.

Thank you charlotte

I have just been thinking will i ever play on roulette in betting shop again and the answer is a definate no. Why would i want to put myself and my family threw that again. Addiction is an awful illness but people dont realise how bad it actual is in gambling. Before i came to this website i didnt think anybody could be as bad as me. But i have realised they are people the same and worse than me. But i will stay strong and nothing will beat me

Day 133 gamble free. In them 130 days i have not gambled on anything not even the lottery. Feel good about that and the urge to gamble has gone but i no i have to be on me guard because 1 bet will start the cycle again and i could not take it this time
A life without gambling feels pretty damn good and thats the way the rest of my life is going to be

Hi boro,

What a fantastic achievement on reaching this milestone, keep reminding yourself how good it feels not to gamble and try and remember if you get the urge all those feeling's of anxiety, nausea, sleeplessnes, despair, dread, hatred, stomach pains, mistrust, detachment from reality and everything else associated with losing hard earned money to a ruthless,thieving and sordid industry.
Best wishes boro.
Keep up the great work

Day 145 gamble free. Had a nitemare today went to buy kids some presents for xmas and when i got to checkout me card declined. I had over a thousand pound available i new it should not have declined. So i was worrying that somebody had took it. Checked at cashpoint they was over a thousand available. Then i checked phone and had a missed phonecall from work. The bank had rang. So i rushed home and had a message on phone saying i had to ring bank urgently. So i rang bank and they were wanting to no can i confirm the amounts that had come out my bank recently. I did and he said your card can be used again. What i finding ******g unbelievable is when i was losing thousand gambling they never put a stop on me card. All this worry has brought the nitemare of gambling back. Feeling sick

Hey Mate,

Just wanted to say I think you are doing great. You get on here each day and you don't need to say much because that link is enough to keep you focused. I applaud anyone who can rack up so many bet free days!

Keep posting and the count will continue!

Cheers flagg i dont say much but like you said just comming on this site keeps me focused and when i read other people diary and see what mess they are in it makes you realise i cant go back to that. I read peoples diary and feel really sorry for them but it makes me more determined. I will never forget the support i got from 1 person on this site and it hurts me to see her struggle now and that is SUE (WOMBLE) she always commented on me diary at the beginning and told me to stick with this site and i have done ever since apart from 1 day when i could not get on a laptop.

Everything in my life is on the up but you cant lose focus and think you are quered.
The woman i love has gone but i have to come to terms with that and concentrate on my daughter and step son

Hi Boro,
Them days are really racking up!
Just a thought, does your ex realise how far you have come with beating your addiction? Have you spoken to her about it?

No she not really interested sue so not spoken about it we get on ok. But to be honest she never really has understood it was an illness.
