Today is day 96 GF! Well actually 30 mins away from day 97GF (YAY) !

I have just read over my thread from the start! Wow I have come along way! Nearly all my posts at the start were negative feeling angry, frustrated and sorry for myself!

Now I would have to say my mood has changed to someone that is determined and hopeful!

Determined to beat this addiction - to work hard, to fix my mistakes and make peace with myself!

Hopeful to create the life I have always wanted!

I agree. The pokies take away the real person. I'm rediscovering who I really am - a person who is actually careful and sensible with money (happy to spend, but to spend wisely). Also someone who enjoys some me time for simple pleasures like walking and running. The pokies destroyed all that - I was reckless with money, and wasted so much time in soul destroying venues. Now I'm back and staying!!!

Congrats on 97!

I completely agree with what you are saying too.

The pokies destroyed so much of who we were they were in fact for me totally soul destroying.

Not only did we lose lots of money, but we lost time and thats something we can never get back.

So now we have to enjoy life, enjoy rediscovering who we once were and our interests.

Its great to know there are so many others out there on the same journey.

I hope we can all beat this addiction and find peace within ourselves over our gambling past and happiness in our present lives and future.

We are all here on this site so that has to count for something right.

Stay smart & stay strong !

TODAY is 100 GF!

Yay I made it! My first 100 done and dusted!

It seems so long ago that I signed up for the 100 challenge and discovered this website! It really has helped so much!

I had tried to quit many times in the past I thought that I could do controlled gambling, just once a month or once every few months with a limited amount! But who was I kidding! MYself! The only way I can be successful in betting this addiction is NOT to gamble at all!

So today is 100 days GF and tomorrow I will start my next 100 day challenge and soon I will be able to count in months not days!

Hope everyone is having a GF weekend!
