Enough is enough, I will take the 100 day Challenge

Postby Tigercool » Tue Jan 16, 2018 12:14 pm

From the first $500 win from the pokies in 2002, 16 years have passed. Except the two years I stayed overseas (to get away from the evil machines), I almost played it every week. I’m not sure how much I have lost exactly, but should roughly over half Million.
I wanted to have a new start this year, a gambling free year. However, up to yesterday, I lost more than $10 k already this year. How pathetic!
Gambling has caused big problems to myself and I have to stop it. Reading others story let me know I’m not alone and it can be conquered. I don’t want feel that pain again and again,
I mark this post. Everyday I will report how it goes and hope can be encouraged.

2nd day, I went to a TAB, but didn’t play at all. I had a coke, read the paper, then left. Well done, tiger.

Tigercool, I wonder why you went to the tab.? Is it only the pokies that is a problem?

Honestly though with so many betting apps, whats the difference between watching at the TAB or watching at home?

Day four. I thought of it and I had $2000 with me, but I didn’t do it. How I wish things could be like this all the time. Then I probabaly had two more properties by now.
Keep me strong, Lord.
