So been an up and down week. Had little sleep on Saturday night and so was really grumpy on Sunday.
I just wanted to escape from the family and i knew where I would head. Told my hubby i was having massive urges that morning and so I would be grumpy while I rode it out. Read most of the day and ate too much chocolate, starting to put on weight since being GF but oh well.

Tuesday dreamt about beings at the pokies and woke feeling sick. I am not going back to wasting my life on those things

Can't believe that my emotions are still in such turmoil, it's driving me nuts. I am going to beat this addiction.

48 days GF nearly at the half way mark 😊

Well done on 48 days Cazza!

Yeah the emotions are crazy,., Wonderful you rode through it!

A good book & chocolate .. great! I'd gotten that sugar craving too in earlier days it does ease abit after awhile ...I'Ve become more physical too. And now that I've always money In my purse I find it hard to pass a cake shop without grabbing something... my fav... Choc eclairs! I dare not buy more than one a week! I reassure myself that I will have walked it off by time I get home!

Well done again Cazza !! 48 days GF is a wonderful achievement!

Going well Cazza!
Keep it up!

Spring hope,
I use 2, quitzilla like cazza and I also use sober time.
Both really good but sober time is a bit prettier lol has the inspirational quotes also but has a few backgrounds to choose from.

Hi Cazza.......well done, I remember when you first posted and you have achieved so much. over the past 7 weeks........It is fantastic that you could tell your husband about the urges, as that is something I could never do.......because I had it so under control!!! It is funny now, I haven't got a problem discussing how I am going with family and friends as I have nothing to hide, and do not ever want to go back to those days. Your husband would be so proud of your efforts, and you should be as well! Urges are normal, and can be overcome!! Have a great weekend.......Jo

Thanks ladies it is great having your support.

Ooohh I used to make eclairs Mona haven't for years, yummy 😊

It is weird, as i was coming home from work tonight i was thinking about how sometimes I would drop into the pokies after work and then do a 10 minute dash around the shops after and then say i had been there for a couple of hours. All just to justify my "lost time "

Tonight i got home and my daughters and i went for a walk up to the shops to get milk and they got a drink each. I could have had another of these missed moments if i was still gambling. Not alot when you think about it, but alot of littles add up to alot more lost.

I stopped smoking 14 years ago and i remember that the 1st 3 months were the hardest and then I had no desire to ever be a smoker again. I hope that my gambling addiction will be the same.

Happy GF weekend everyone. 49 days GF 😊
