Hey Mona,

Doing well, not sure what day I'm on, haven't been tracking. My job interview was yesterday and I feel really good about how it went. Its always good when it feels more like a conversation rather than an interview. Gonna be a really nervous wait though as you never know how well other people have interviewed. Still going to GA as well and the people there are really nice.

That's fantastic.

You could always go by when you went to your first meeting. l could easily lose track if I didn't mark the days on my calendar!

Wishing you all the best! Stay strong.

Mona

Hey guys,

I haven't posted in a while, just thought i'd share an update. I'm currently on day 12 GF which is my longest streak yet. The time I spend thinking about gambling is becoming less and less. I have paid off my smallest debt to Paypal which is good because I was starting to get phone calls and emails to them. I am working my way through my debt to my dad and have already paid off more than $1000 of the $3500 I owe him and have made a budget which will allow me to finish paying off by next month. After that I can start working away at my final debt which is the credit card, which I'm hoping to pay off by the end of the year. I also start work placement on the 22nd which I'm pretty excited for!

Hi Pikey!

Congrats on 12 days.
It is great that you're sorting out your finances.
Had wondered how you were doing . Are you still going to meetings?

Great job Pikey. It must be a great feeling paying back your debts. You are taking control of your life. Well done. Keep up the good work. I am at day 10 today. I have been trying to give up pokies for a few years. I have a good feeling about 2018. The year I finally give gambling the boot.

I'll be honest, I haven't been going to GA as much as I should. I will try to go more in the future as I know it is a great resource in my recovery. It is a great feeling paying off my debts and having a semblance of control in my life. The challenge is to keep it going.
