Hi i'm Adam and I've been on here since 2015. Its taken two years to push myself forward enough to get all the possible blocks in place, and I mean all the blocks I don't carry my debit card with me anymore just the cash I need. I transfer all my wages away each month. I don't have cash at my disposal but I do have peace of mind that I wont ruin a good gamble free run with a binge of a day of wasting money in pubs or bookies. Each year I get better which has culminated in 2018 only spending six hundred pounds on gambling (took me approx. two hours to 300 pounds of this one afternoon this year and that was the end of that run of gambling!!!!). Who knows whether ill be able to be gamble free all of 2019 but I just take every day as it comes and try to enjoy myself, be healthy and spend time with family and friends. I use this website everyday not because I need to but it passes the time and gives me goals to achive to each year. Thank you for reading and good luck to you also.

2019 GOALS:
1) Zero gambling all year for the first time!!!!!
2) Lose some weight (get down to 12 six pounds meaning i'm no longer over weight). I am to do this simply by eating nutricuos meals an exercising regularly.
3) No smoking (already lasted two years).
4) No Drinking (already lasted 4 months and is good for my mental well being).
This all sounds very optimistic but i have done it successfully for four months so hopefully i can maintain it for the year!!!! Lets hope 2019 is successfull.

I HAVE NOW HIT THE HALF YEAR MARK GAMBLE FREE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN PROBABLY FIFTEEN YEARS, IT FEELS GOOD ;)

I haven't gambled for

190

days
