Great update chunkyquitter. Very inspiring to all of us who are quitting. I too have had a great past few months being gamble free, enjoying past hobbies, having money to do nice things.

Keep updating periodically, as it's great to share our successes.

I have been pretty good. I’ve had the odd small slap on the brickies laptop.

Have been really broke lately free have having a very successful 2017 repaying my debt. Xmas and Jan have really drained the accounts and all the bills.
Then to top it off I drove through a school zone at 3.45pm at 56klms and hour, hadn’t changed my address and revived $400 in fines.
Snuck off to try and turn some of what I had left into money for the fines.

After losing my money I was taking the back exit out of the pub. And there parked in the street was one of my kids new friends at school parents in his car on the phone. I felt absolutely ashamed that my crappy habits would reflect on my children and what people may think of the.. when someone has seen their dad sneaking out of the pub in a Monday night.

I feel like an absolute loser, but it was a really good wake up call. I don’t want to be seen like that, I don’t want it to reflect in my kids, and I will be in so much strife if it was mentioned in front of my wife that I was seen at the pub tonight.

For any other gamblers or quitters out there. Always remember how good to feels when you’ve done nothing wrong and have nothing to hide before feeding those pieces of crap any money
