Diary to recovery

Postby Keeton » Sun Jun 17, 2018 7:12 pm

It's been 6 days since my last bet and feeling good. I find that I am enjoying things more now because I am just keeping busy so I don't think about gambling.

Played some Sudoku to Day on my iPad which was awesome as It gives the same sense of escape and challenge that the pokies were giving me. I played for about 40 mins just on the same game (it was a difficult one) but not finished yet. I am going to get a book from the library about sudoku so I can get some techniques to use.

Feeling good today.

Ready to chill out for rest of night.

Til next time,

Keeton

Hello Keeton,

I'm Calvin, one of the facilitators here on Gamblers Help Online.
It is great to hear that you have substituted your gambling for a pleasurable activity that does not involve money.
Writing a list of what you are grateful for is also useful as it can help keep you grounded and can also encourage others on the forums to involve themselves in their own gratitude list.
If you ever need further support, do not hesitate to call gamblers helpline on 1800 858 858 where they can provide you with gambling counselling over the phone and provide a referral to a face to face gambling counsellor.

Keep up the great work!

Regards,

Calvin.
