Hi Puggles,

Keep going one day at a time.
We are all pretty much in the same situation.
Debt Debt Debt.

No more for me, just chip a way and try to pay it off.

No more making publicans or bookies rich, my kids and family have suffered enough. I have lost count how many days i am on but will call it an even 10.

I am cheering for you puggles and hope we can all beat this devil of a thing.

Thanks again for the support, made it to double figures and navigated a known sressor for me, which are Sunday evenings after i drop my son back to his mum. I've had some of my "best" binges after that previously. Decided to just go for walk (in the heat!) and left the wallet at home just in case.

Stay strong people!

I've found the best strategy is limiting access to cash when I am out.
It's a ritual for me to go to the local atm at the start of every week and withdraw my week's pocket money
And then I'll only take what I need for that day, maybe $20 or $50 if I want to get a bit of petrol for the car
Then I can drive by the venues knowing that even if I went in I could only gamble a few dollars, and so what's the point?

Oregon, hi there, I used to think what was the point of gambling if you only had a small amount. I haven’t noticed anyone else say that. Used to be happy with $20 and then it was $50 and the I noticed it crept to $100. Very scary that money had no worth.. keep up the good work everyone
