Hi boro,

I'm really glad for you that you have decided on total abstinence. It seems to be the best way for the majority of us.

Well done on 5 days - just keep taking each day at a time, they add up all by themselves :-)

Graeme,

I remember all those days you clocked up before......There is no reason whatsoever you can't do that again.

Make me proud...but most of all make yourself proud....We can do it fellah.

Hi boro
Day 10 and all is well positive thinking
Gambling is a pointless waste of time and our lives
so there really is no point in going back to it
Infact it would be quite insane to self inflict feeling all is unwell so all is well is good and solid
Keep strong and determined

Hi boro
24 days well done I know what you mean about the debts mine come to the front when I get paid but then I try to put them at the back so I can stay positive at least they are going down even if slowly and we know it won't permanent as long as we keep abstaining
otherwise the debt could be even worse and that's not worth thinking about
Keep strong determined and positive

No thoughts what so ever to gamble. Got me mind set right at the moment. I no in the future im going to get urges but everything in place to stop me. No accounts on line phoned up and banned for the max term.

Debt at the back of me mind like I have said if I didn't it would drive me mad and make me feel depressed
