Thanks for the reply Jinxywolf!

I know you are right!

I do have an amazing cousellor that I have been working with!

And we have just started couples couselloring I want to try everything so atleast I can say I DID MY BEST to work it all out! If he doesn't change I will need to make some tough decisions cos I have wasted enough of my life gambling I dont want to be in this rollercoaster anymore I am done with it! I cant have anyone pulling me back into that world it's a hard enough battle with myself!

I wish I could confide in a friend or family member but they just wouldn't understand. I can imagine my family u just need to stop!! Ha like I know that and I would of said that to myself 1000 times. If only it was this easy!

On the bright side 65days GF and more determined then ever!

Hey Springhope

Yeah my dad was like that, he just didn't understand why I just couldn't stop but in saying that, he has been very supportive of me since I opened up to him about how bad it really was and just how unhappy I was. He didn't have to understand my addiction to be supportive of my decision to quit.

Maybe just explain to them that they don't need them to understand your addiction, all you really need them to do is support you emotionally and give you someone to talk to openly and honestly about what you are feeling.

I'm glad you are trying to work this out together but like you said if he is not taking this serious, you may have to make the hard choice. No one has the right to drag you back into the gambling abyss. You are a very strong, capable person and deserve everything you strive for in this world, so take it, grab it with both hands and don't let go for anyone.

Be Well

Thanks again for all the support.

Day 67 GF today! I have had a super busy week so far so haven't had much time at all think!

I have a few counselling appointments next week so hopefully that should help!

Hope everyone is going okay!

Well done on 77 days. I love having my weekend's again too.
Sitting here enjoying a coffee knowing that there are no bet regrets from a day of gambling is fantastic. Closing in on your 100 days 😊

Today marks 80 days GF!

I am really focused on repaying debt! Making sure I dont fall back into the old habits of chasing losses and feeling that the only way to pay all the bills is to gamble!
I am also working with cousellor on bettering myself and working towards who I want to be as a person and who I don't want to be! As well as identifying triggers and putting plans in place for when I do have urges!
